Day 3 at Supermarket: Sunday 16/2

The last day... For the staff a lot of Sunday goes to organising the deconstruction of the fair. But we still had time to enjoy the last day at the fair and experience its art and happenings!

One of the more spiritual galleries at Supermarket, Candyland from Stockholm, had a session in their booth. A 16-year old visitor got an aura transplantation – a brand new aura that has been cultured in a lab in Ukraine. In the next booth, Daily Temporary (Stockholm) continued their long talks about love in their heavenly decorated trailer.

Ten minutes before closing, Galleria Entropia from Wroclaw gathered visitors and staff to play back a recording of Supermarket that had started on the first day. The recorder was part of an art work, placed on the wall with the tape working its way up over the wall and back down into the recording device. The result was intriguing – a low mumble, voices over voices, speeding up and slowing down.

TALKS included the seminar Life Beyond Budgets – a panel discussion about alternative financial strategies where Nina Palavandishvili, (GeoAIR, Tbilisi), Amy Fee (Dansens Hus, Stockholm) and Kaspars Lielgalvis (Totaldobze, Riga) talked to John W. Fail (Ptarmigan, Tallin) about how arts and culture can look beyond traditional models of financial support. One of the highlights of Red Spot was Dolanbay from Berlin with 'Untitled Singular Act'. Dolanbay, from Grüntaler9, wanted to examine the relationship between materiality and performability. Dressed in a white cotton one-piece with charcoal sticks attached to it, he moved around on a large sheet of white paper, leaving traces and creating patterns. 

We are so happy with this year's fair. The meetings programme has brought many relevant and interesting discussions to the table, the AIM network has expanded, artists from all aver the world have met, talked, exchanged ideas, laughed and partied together. They have met the Swedish audience, that has met the whole world at Supermarket. And most of all – Supermarket has shown fantastic art! Exciting, touching, experimental, gripping, wierd, beautiful and explorative art of all kinds! So THANK YOU to all of the exhibitors, artists and visitors for making this year's Supermarket the best ever!

Hope to see you all next year!!!
