We can now announce the stellar collection of artists we’ve invited to produce collectable pieces of art for Noise of Art’s return to Latitude Festival next weekend.
The party starts at 12 midnight at the Film and music tent with Severino and Ben Osborne (resident DJs at Horse Meat Disco and Slipped Disco respectively), My Toys Like Me and The 9000 combining to create the music, while The Immaculate Extremists, Overlap, Your Mum and Prick Image crate the visuals and costumed performance.
There will be unique artifacts for you to find and keep created by local and international artists including: Gavin Turk, Stella Vine, Russell Herron, Gareth Bayliss, Schwange, Paul Kindersley, Edwina McEachran, Gemma Land, Andrew Hatfield, Matt Gee, Monique Jivram, Reeka Kapoor, Claudia Forsbrey, Francesca Denega and Corinna Spencer.
The Art Hunt forms a key part of Noise of Art’s immersive club show UFO: Rendlesham Incident, with a club show on the opening Friday night of Latitude (July 16th) and events throughout the weekend.
The theme of these events is inspired by a real incident that occurred in a Suffolk forest in the winter of 1980. Thirty years ago a hapless alien cruise ship landed in Rendlesham Forest next to a US Air Force Base. This was a mistake. The accidental tourist ship was supposed to be landing on the Mountain of Embarrassing Dreams. But the captain, having un-opposable hoofs, entered the wrong data into the ship’s sat nav, so they landed near Woodbridge instead.
During the kerfuffle of getting away from the naturally curious US Air Force, priceless artifacts belonging to the alien tourists were scattered across the forests, towns and fields of East Anglia. Lying lost for 30 years (or a long weekend in alien time), the aliens have now returned to find the lost treasures.
The Rendelsham Forest incident was reported to the MOD by Lt. Cl. Charles l Holt, the deputy commander of the US Air Force base.
Full details of the events are available through Noise of Art’s Daily Newspaper, distributed free at the UFO Disco and on the festival site. The Art Hunt is curated by Suffolk born artist, Mark Scott-Wood.
