Peter Liversidge: Festival Proposals
From 1st to 30th June 2006, artist Peter Liversidge typed and posted Proposals for the Edinburgh Festival to the Ingleby Gallery. From the sublime to the ridiculous, 105 proposals were made and sent. Whilst 2 were suspected casualties of the Great British postal service, the surviving 103 were collated in a book published by the gallery in August 2006.
Liversidge’s Festival Proposals included running a dentist surgery, sweet shop or petting zoo from the gallery for the Festivals duration, the construction of a death slide from Edinburgh Castle to the Scott Monument, or the release of a flock of 5 million starlings over the city – and many other fantastical suggestions besides.
