A mixed media piece made specially for the Collective space. There’s a couple of chairs painted black leaning against the wall, there’s an old piece of washed-up boat hanging from a frame, there’s a ﬂashing light, a neon and a table with a few odds and ends on it. All in all, the installation at the Collective doesn‘t add up to very much. The attempt at creating an atmosphere (if that was the intent) falls dead on the eyes and ears (the music beats, sub-Grace Jones). Is this meant to be taken seriously? If it’s a joke it might be partially redeemed.
