Sustenance

The penultimate event of the project  Unseen Simultaneous Realities saw the recoverists hosted by David Hoyle in a picnic in HOME gallery. Fruit was the theme. There were bananas inscribed with questions that the group had put forward and a frank and moving discussion ensued between the artists , participants and audience. The audience were in some ways the most surprising and interesting - people revealed their own stories of giving up, being on recovery, struggling to recover - and some never ever talking about it to anyone. Discussion moved onto the politics of recovery and the implications of a drugged , damaged population feeding large corporations selling dreams of perfection. As most people were dressed as giant fruits  throughout, there was also a sense of the absurd, incongruous about the evening!
