Not that there are any prizes
at stake; the game's reward and fun is the inspiration of playing. Having
agreed on a set of "rules", a time-span, the materials to be used and the
area to be employed, the artists involved take alternate moves or rather
make alternate contributions to an artwork. Unlike Richard Hamilton and
Dieter Roth's collaborations, it is not the final product which is
exhibited but the processes involved in its production.
Appealing to anybody who enjoys games the idea has led Terry Duffy to
areas as diverse as a derelict house (time allowed, two weeks) and a piece
of A2 paper ( time allowed, three hours). The results have been
photographed and arranged along the walls of Manchester's Peterloo Gallery
as a hint of things to come.
