Series of stream-of-consciousness descriptions, analyses and critiques of our toy art scene, printed and disseminated monthly by post and word of mouth in the build up to their display at ARRANGEMENTS, Pallas Projects Dublin, November 2019.

PART 1 : JANUARY 2019.

Part 1: UNTITLED  Date: January 2019.  1300 words.  Front cover: Pharoah Sanders,  Black Unity , 1971; Back cover: Snakes & Ladders board.    “ PLAYING  S nakes & Ladders  the other day with my wife and kids I realise in split moment I’m having fun, before returning to having fun again. Flatness of the board game and crab-like race to the top—full of oxymoron and irony—made me think of Jacques Derrida and his deconstructive freeplay in terms of language, competition, centres and agents of influence, and artistic freedom in the art scene.”
