food for thought...Sustenance was a one-night only exhibition by Oliver van der Lugt at Forepaw one of Northcote's busiest gallery/music/installation spaces. This is what Oliver had to say about the evening: "Some people would call it art, I prefer to call it a constellation. It encompasses sound, projection, light works, an interactive installation, drawings, objects, photographs and soup. This is a measure of time (travel) and has gently amassed over the course of just under a year of living in melbourne, drawn from/with what is at hand. Sometimes intuitive/ obtuse/ oblique investigations of environment, syntax, colour, light, texture, rhythm, listening, mapping, narrative, decay." Very much Forepaw fare - a wonderfully motley assortment of interactive entertainment, twitching the taste barometer, created by the peoples for the peoples...

ANYWAY Oliver invited everyone to "come along to construct and collapse, bathe in space, play, talk, eat soup, and lay on the floor" - we came past a day late, missing out on the communal vegan fare and free love but were still well pleased to see the results before they were packed up along with the dishes.

I was there and the soup was excellent.
