Grunts for the Arts

The Great Track and Field Swindle

We’re creatures of habit, us folk here at Grunts for the Arts HQ.

Probably due to the incredibly repetitive nature of our strict artistically sporty regime, we’ve developed a fondness for routine, repetition and circuitous actions.

With this in mind, we soon realised that the summer quite simply wouldn’t be the second season in the year without a GFA outing, and so were overjoyed to be given the opportunity to link up with the charming souls that constitute the membership of New Work Network and Bermondsey Artists’ Group in order to entertain them at their summer social at Café Gallery.

Which is what we did.

Since the theme for the day was Cheating (before we became the  focus of the day, there was a discussion around notions of cheating the system within the artosphere), swindling and fraudulence was the theme for our events as well.

With the Where’s the Cultural Integrity? chocolate hunt, the How low will you go?’limbo competition, Daniel Oliver’s Interpretive Wrestling and Rachel Gomme’s The Judge’s Decision is Final all making up a part of the swindling mix, a splendid afternoon resulted with magnificent proof of the inaccuracy of the adage ‘Cheats never prosper’.

How Low Will You Go?

I love it when a scam comes together
