Sunny morning and Wrong Art

Art for art's sake, with no purpose, for any purpose perverts art. But art achieves a purpose which is not its own.
 - Benjamin Constant

It's a beautiful and sunny day today outside. It has been a lovely morning, I've managed to respond to a couple of friends' email, while my daughter was having a sleep. It does not happen often. Mostly my mornings are very busy, but today kids are being great, they are playing by themselves for a change, together, running through the house, having fun.
And I've got two minutes to get back to my blog.

Couple of days ago I saw an interesting program on TV about an alternative Art project exhibition, it took place in Melbourne, and it was called "Wrongtown".
The exhibition itself was set in a suburban house. A group of talented artist took on a job of renovating the place, remodeling it into an object of art, rather than a normal place for happy household living.
It was a pure work of art and imagination! For example, the kitchen was transformed into a giant drain hole, with garden dirt all over it. The other example - bedroom with the cupboards filled with dripping like blood jam, chests of draws stuffed with pop corn and other sweet and sticky substances from the kitchen's pantry.
It looked quite impressing!
Every room of the house was filled with unexpected surprises.

Talented people can create art out of nowhere and bring it to now and here :)
Hopefully one day this exhibition will take place in Brisbane. Would love to go there and experience madness of the Wrong Town.
