This is not what I wanted

Call for submissions for a group show in Waterside Project Space in October 2009.

‘This is not what I wanted’ deals with themes of disappointment, boredom, expectation and anticipation, time passing and time-wasting, both in the production and reception of work. The disappointment of the works should not come from their failures (i.e. classically ‘bad’ work is not interesting in this context), and the boredom should be engaged in a sense deeper than that of time-consuming and painstaking craft.

The exhibition will consist mostly of visual artworks, but performative pieces will be considered as well.

Waterside Project Space is a large white cube / warehouse space in Wharf Road, London N1, and hosts a programme of one-night exhibitions and performance events.

Funding is unfortunately not available at this stage and participating artists will need to cover their own production and transport costs.

Please send images of works with some text, proposals for new works, links, bios etc. to Pierre d’Alancaisez at
