Performance Art at Lunch Time

IMG-20130613-00136To witness a performance art piece is a bit of a peculiar experience. I’m sure it’s exactly what it must feel like to get caught in a flash mob event. Today I saw the staging of a lunch time performance piece which consisted of what might have been two of our security guards or actors/volunteers dressed as our building security guards having an audible dialogue about art, what is good and bad art, art teachers, and art education etc.

Standing within white outlined squares, the guards performed as students stopped to listen and watch in anticipation while others simply carried on unfazed with their usual lunch time activities. Even with the white squares around them, they blended into the busy atmosphere very well to the point where they went almost unnoticed. I must admit I found it quite entertaining and look forward to seeing more guerrilla performance art. Just as there are flash mobs with song and dance, there should be more flash performances involving art. Let’s head up the movement!

    • Yes, why not? I’d love to see something like that happen, maybe even organize it or contribute garments to it. Now would be the perfect time considering that the London men’s fashion week starts tomorrow.

      • Could earn you some publicity – and would be worth getting someone to video to post on YouTube etc. All good for building the image. Could get some actors as models and then they can really strut their stuff and do a bit of crowd attracting too. A Fashion Performance.
