9th November 2012 Take Away Session at Papiersaal - Zurich presented by Artacks
TAKE-AWAY is artack’s mobile flagship project. Set up as an briskly live-painting-session it allows for exciting interaction between the artists involved and the public. Our collective sessions and artistic get togethers act as a statement against all the «battles», which characterized other live-painting sessions for too long time. What we present can be seen as laid back stage for the boldest artists to crow with unrivalled artistic skills.
The backbone of each TAKE AWAY session is an adjustable wall consisting of a number of loose square plates. Put together the plates form a smooth surface to receive artistic emissions of all sorts – but each and every plate is extractable and thus also replaceable.
For every TAKE-AWAY session a certain number of artists are invited to turn this wall individually or as a team into a work-in-progress limited only by the duration of the session. This work-in-progress takes place right in front of crowd that is eager to acquire original art works as a snip. By pushing the buzzer the audience can actively interfere into the artistic processes and purchasing anything they see on the wall at any time. The plate carrying the theme of their heart will be extracted, signed, sealed and sold for take away. The gaping whole in the wall will be immediately replaced by an untouched new plate – and on and on the story goes!
