There’s still time to catch Slow at the Plymouth Arts Centre. The exhibition, which pays homage to the conceptual art of the 1960s and ’70s, runs, or rather saunters, until March 19.
Among the fascinating exhibits is one from Lau Thiamkok. In his piece Kirby, Plymouth is romanticised, fictionalised and poeticalised (err made poetic) through the lights of houses, steetlamps, windows and ‘the fictive flying light’ (which is perhaps one of those laser pointer pens that were so popular a few years back).
He’s also showing Ideas of Poetic, a working investigation in what the poetic can be and Philosophy of Ghosts, an attempt to answer a whole slew of philosophical questions including ‘why does it exist rather than nothing’, which is a something we’ve all asked about UKIP before.
