Antarctica

Notes

Chelsea programme notes:At Art College Chris Dobrowolski discovered that art could theoretically be anything. He made a boat from driftwood and tried to escape…he failed. This led to a series of vehicles from recycled materials all with a deliberate “knocked up in my garden shed” feel about them.In his continuing attempt to escape the art world he has been to the Antarctic with the British Antarctic Survey. His performance lecture will concentrate on his efforts to relate to this blank canvas and his attempt to justify his existence there, whilst everyone around him tries to save the planet.
