Abstract

This radically open ended intermedial artistic research project was presented as a “world tour” by a fictional rock band which in turn became a conceptual vehicle through which a diverse range of objects and activities were developed, performed and exhibited. Taken together, these different objects and activities collectively point to, yet do not individually constitute, the work itself. Consequently, this work offers an experiential illustration of the radically spatialised and fictionalised post-conceptual nature of contemporary art.
