Sean Worrall – the on-going year-long #365ArtDrop18 piece, Deptford X, September 2018

The on-going year-long #365ArtDrop18 piece from me, Sean Worrall, continued over in Deptford, South London, last week as part of the 19th Deptford X art festival. The (always carefully carefully placed) drops we’re a part of the Fringe this year, the plan was for 43 paintings to be left as a response to the invitation to take part, the reality was only 22 were hung on the streets of Deptford – unfinished business then, we shall be back in the next few days. There’s simply just not enough days in the week or hours in the day right now, Deptford X on one side of the London, the Cultivate Columbia Road takeover happening at the same time on this side of town, it just wasn’t possible to be in two places at once last week. And so only 22 pieces of art, but hey, come on, 22 piee of art left for people to take, 22 paintings on found recycled material left hanging on walls around Deptford during the Deptford X festival.

We don’t hang around after the pieces have been hung, just leave them, take some photos asa record and then quietly go, we could see as we retraced our steps that  some pieces had been taken straight away, indeed one piece almost as we were hanging it (great conversation about Deptford and art and people with this guy who came over and asked about what we were doing (as I keep saying, a big part of what this piece is about is engagement)/ Others pieces were still there when we left, there to be claimed later as we saw via postings from people who had found pieces and posted images on their social media feeds in the days after the drop –  there is the #365ArtDrop18 hashtag on the back of each piece, engagement and people posting photos is a big part of the piece, it is encouraged…
