I’m happy to announce I’ll be making a new work for the Unnoticed Art Festival.
Unfortunately for you my dear, this will remain secret until the festival has taken place.
Here’s some more info about the festival:
The Unnoticed Art Festival returns for a second edition this summer, following the first Unnoticed Art Festival in 2014 and the subsequent publication of the book Unnoticed Art.
On June 24/25 the Unnoticed Art Festival will take place in an undisclosed city in the Netherlands.
Hundreds of artists worldwide have responded to an Open Call for performance concepts. From these submissions, a performance program has been compiled by a committee of five artists. The Unnoticed Art performances are to be realized in the public space, on the street, with no explanation and with no fore-warning. The objective is to go by unnoticed. Taking place in everyday settings, these performances involve hiding the unusual within the usual. Passersby may perceive these actions, but will not recognize them as performance art.
A group of thirty participants will perform the Festival’s program. These participants need not be artists. No performance experience is required. All that matters is an interest in the nature of the festival, and a willingness to experiment. These participants have a double role: they will perform the selected works whilst simultaneously acting as the only audience to the event. Since the festival is not announced, these participants are the only ones ‘in the know’ – hence, they are the only audience that is aware of being an audience.
A book will be compiled following the second edition of the Festival. This book will include all the concepts from the program, in addition to presenting the personal experiences of all the participants, as both actors and audience.
The program of this year will include works of:

I’m happy to announce my work has been selected for the Unnoticed Art Festival! Which work I’ll be showing still remains a secret.
Some info from the website:
“In the spring of 2014 222lodge will be organising a festival for Unnoticed Live Art.
The festival for Unnoticed Art balances on the line between public and private. It shows artworks hiding in normality. The language, used to express the works, fits in the average social behaviour in public space and, because of that, will probably remain unnoticed to bystanders.
The location and dates of the festival will remain secret. That way the passers-by will be accidental and without knowledge of the occasion. They have their own aims, their own occupations, their own thoughts.
After the festival a manifestation will be organised and a book will be published. This will of course be announced clearly.”
They’re still looking for volunteers, so if you want to help: please go to the website and send them an email! 🙂
