Podcast: Art as Play part 2

Clear spot: Art as play part 2

The second of a two part look at the exhibition 'Play' which is currently on at the Cello factory near Waterloo. The exhibtion mixes established British artists like Jake & Dinos Chapman and Bob and Roberta smith with up and coming artists such as Natasha Kissell and Peter Harrop. The exhibtion is about the nature of play and playful activities and how gallery visitors interact with works of art on display.

In the second instalment, Alex Fitch is talking to three of the artists who have work displayed in the exhibition: Neil Zakiewicz whose piece is an electric guitar in the shape of a giant artist's pallette and pain brush, with the amplifier disguised as an abstract painting, Natasha Kissell about her 3 dimensional painting that combines countryside painting with architects maquetts to create a fantasy landscape in a perspex box and Sarah Baker who has made a mixed media scultpture challenging the perception of fashion in art. (mp3 format, 13.8mb)
