Project Skive


Does this sound like you? Yeah, you!

"Are you one of the many people spending too much time at work? Eating lunch at your desk? Addicted to your Blackberry and not able to switch it off, even on holiday? Peacock Visual Arts' new exhibition No Time to Lose is about all of this, and more."

This link was sent to me by Winnipeg curator extraordinaire, Milena Placentile, from her exhibition, No Time To Lose, at Peacock Visual Arts in Aberdeen. Abby Schoneboom's Project Skive looks at the creative time-wasting efforts of British white-collared workers (Skiving is slang for all the fucking around you do at work). Read anonymous reports and add your own personal favourite skives on the website. As I reported a couple of weeks ago, Halifax artist Cathy Busby is also in the show.
