Thru 30 September 2012
Dinu is developing a flying saucer, its design inspired by the B movies of 1950s cold war America. Lying in the grand alley approach to Tatton Park’s Mansion, VEX will be a solo piloted metal spaceship having crashed at close proximity to the Mansion.
Inside the ship, visitors will find a series of video messages – perhaps at first glance a distress signal – in which multiple dimensions of the Marxist revolutionary Che Guevara, who has been the ship’s pilot, extol the virtues of space flight, gardening and dub music as the new and most effective revolutionary forces at work in the world of today.

Tatton Park Biennial: Flights of Fancy opens to the public on 12 May and runs through the summer until 30 September, 2012. This third edition of the Biennial considers the human urge to fly, to accomplish the impossible in fragile times. Its artists are considering the impact of experimentation on delicate eco-systems, looking backward and forward for guidance, wisdom and/or humour. Their proposed results are experiments in time and space.
