Project Description

We Have Come to Shack Up with You is a new art project by Lanfranco Aceti.

Lanfranco Aceti Inc. sponsored 10 return train trips from London to Wendover, to the country home of the current Prime Minister.

This was a rambling performance that saw an idyllic journey in the English countryside as well as a walk up to the country house of the PM that provided an artistic and aesthetic moment to reflect, literately and metaphorically, on the philosophical implications of a growing divide between the haves and have nots, between petty crimes by the lower classes heavily punished and global criminal activities by the higher classes that go unpunished.

Distance becomes a measure, a parameter of current socio-economic realities.

Public performance curators: Joasia Krysa and Marquard Smith.
Curatorial assistant: Jonathan Munro.
