Should I stay or should I go
blue fabric iron on yellow felt stars ink - 29/03/2017-29/03/2019
Theresa May has triggered article 50 on the 29th of March 2017.
On the same day the project 'Should I stay or should I go now' was launched. I have designed an armband which I will wear daily for the coming two years. As I feel very saddened by the prospect of the United Kingdom leaving the European Union- a union which stands for peace if nothing else, I wish to express my sense of loss and despair during this period of separation and at the same time create an opportunity for conversation and exchange in the public realm. Anyone who wishes to join in the project can order a DIY kit for an armband for £2.50 plus postage, payment in cash or via paypal. Please e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org All I am asking from you in return is to wear the armband and to send it back on the 29th of January 2019 together with one line on what the European Union meant to you.
An exhibition will follow on the 29th of March 2019 marking the end of the UK's EU membership displaying all worn armbands together with your comments.
There will be various other events and artistic interventions taking place in Glasgow throughout the two year period bringing EU and UK citizens together-watch this space.
Please don't hesitate to contact me should you wish to comment, support or simply receive more information on the project. We are all in this together.
