No Offence Intended

I recently saw the exhibition child's play by collective no offence intended, part of the Manchester Free For Arts Festival 2011. It was brilliantly curated, large individual works coming together to a huge room from the perspective of a child. I don't currently have the time to describe the whole show, but here's a few points:

- the entire floor was covered in (polystyrene?) balls, which made you slide around the floor, relatively safely

- there was a plastic traffic bollard with a light inside it, which took on the air of a child's night light

- there were large sweet jars, which when you approached them, set off a 'burglar alarm'

- there were alcoholic slush puppies



I'm gutted I didn't make this earlier show by the same group, on the topic of religion:
