Ghost of a Chance has been organised by Wild Caret Arts and curated by Siumee Keelan. She discovered that although the artists in Ghost of a Chance come from very different cultures, from St Petersburg to London, their work shares a narrative element and explores the theme of journeys. The work delves into improbable or impossible journeys - journeys into other lives, through personal experience and historical and cultural identity.
- Try to buy clothes at the Factory of Found Clothing’s Shop of Utopian Clothing.
- See the wonders of teleportation.
- Explore others lives through self and family portraits.
- Discover the Russians, Olga and Alexander Florensky’s take on Ipswich.
All these works combine to create an exciting, eclectic and sometimes eccentric exhibition.
WAG is working in partnership with our local Foyer. The Foyer Federation provides accommodation and support for young homeless people. A group of young people will be taking part in artist-led workshops as well as getting involved in the evolution of the Florensky installation for Ghost of a Chance.
