When I saw that Philippa Hughes was hosting a performance artist in her apartment for a week as an experimental art piece (Art is Fear) about the relationship between artist and collector, I was intrigued. I’ve been too busy to check in and see how it’s going. Yesterday’s piece in the Washington Post by Kriston Capps gives some clues. Joe Flood’s blog post about visiting Philippa during the experiment tells more of the story, including an unfortunate visit by the ASPCA!
I’m sort of glad I didn’t bother Philippa while the experiment was in progress, it sounds like she had her hands full. I also sort of regret not making some time to visit, because I would have liked to have seen the project in progress for myself.
