A Graveyard of Ideas I 07.09.20 - 03.10.20
The project seeks to erect a digital monument dedicated to the harnessing of failures by asking: what kind of possibilities would we unlock if we considered failure not as a wall that ends a life but as a window into values that we’d prefer to live by?The proposed virtual space will incorporate technology ranging from radio waves to Zoom calls to serve as a funeral site for dead ideas and a cradle for fledgling ones/those unborn due to the fear of failure.
We are thrilled to announce that the Yinka Shonibare Foundation, with support from Gasworks and the Triangle Network, has been awarded funding by the London Community Response Fund, administered by City Bridge Trust, the City of London Corporation’s charitable funder, to support artists to develop new work via Guest Projects Digital from June - October 2020.
