After spending time in the Liminal Village at the Boom Festival where he was exhibiting, Robert Venosa made his way over to Vienna. Here he paid a visit to my friend Peter Gric, who he sat down with and discussed his artwork and a little about Fantastic and Visionary movement.
Owing to work commitments and the randomness of available seats on stand-by airline tickets, I departed Berlin for the Boom Festival early Wednesday morning. Perhaps this was a good thing that I left at this time as I later found out that on Monday, opening day many people spent waiting the entire day in the blazing Portuguese sun to enter the festival.
Boom Festival 2008 is shaping up to be a very potent mix for Visionary arts. The epicentre for this can be found at the Liminal Village where a number of events and activities will take place. I’m looking forward to attending the festival for a number or reasons.
I’m off to the Boom Festival next August in Portugal to exhibit with other Visionary artists. This August 3-9th. marks the 6th. incarnation of the Boom Festival, a massive global trance culture gathering. For the third time at the Boom Festival, the Liminal Village returns presenting the Vision Gallery.
After all of this time getting to know Delvin over email and Skype chat sessions, I would finally get to meet him face to face. He was making his way to England to meet with Brigid Marlin of the Society for the Art of Imagination (AOI) to discuss assisting them with their Inscape magazine. I was very happy to offer him a place to stay in my studio while on his travels.
