Away Day

Teresa Schweiger

The Oxford Bingo Club, 16-18 Oxford Street, Whitstable.


Opening times of the Bingo hall

One and two…twelve…three and four…thirty-four… The naming of numbers continues until someone calls out. Someone won. Others lost. Mumbling rises and hushes. Up and down. In between daily routines until the next game starts. Life: Risks we take and luck we hope for. As part of a wider artistic investigation into the notion of risk, Schweiger invites the audience to play or watch into the Bingo hall* where the artist will sit, unlabelled, for the entire day, trying to win.

*Please note that all visitors are subject to the rules and regulations of the Bingo hall and have to pay for their games.
