Shaun C Badham, ‘The Will to Proceed’, artist’s tour, 19-20 PM July 20, 2019, London, UK
As part of Nocturnal Creatures artist Shaun C Badham presents The Will to Proceed, a tour which coincides with his on-going participatory project I’M STAYING.
The I’M STAYING neon sculpture initially travelled around the city of Bristol for two and half years travelling via democratic vote. I’M STAYING arrived at Leadenhall Market in 2018 as part of the eighth edition of Sculpture in the City and will remain, for another year, for the ninth edition. In maintaining the democratic essence of the project, Shaun’s tour will require participants to vote repeatedly to determine the group’s movements throughout the tour. Shaun will start by describing two artworks to the group, while not revealing the artist’s name, the artwork’s title or the medium. Shaun will attempt to focus on the ideas behind the work and what feelings it instils. The group will then vote for which one of the two artworks they would like to visit. Once at the artwork, an informal group conversation will be had about the sculpture’s meaning, truths, and descriptive accuracy. This process will be repeated five times, throughout the tour.
The tour is free but booking is required. Please find the details here
