"Art is not there simply to be understood. ... It is more the sense of an indication or suggestion" . Joseph Beuys
What can be understood, suggested or indicated by presenting 2 back to back events that openly claim to be, "THE Same but different"… other than the physical differences of 2 different venues?
Why attend 2 events that seem to imply the same offerings?
In preparation of the events the conversations between Ferguson & Turner have followed a consistent pattern of exploring narratives to be found in rules to"grouping things".
However, is the physical product of collaborative discussion a clear record of what has been discussed? If our "thinking about things" is important, what does making things add? Is all collaborative art thinking back to front? How will "things" or lack of them satisfy our interests in making 2 events "THE Same but different "…
"THE Same but different "… will be 2very different events in 2 different venues
