On 16 January 2010 Wysing Arts Centre‘s ‘year of The Improbable’ kicks of with a solo exhibition by London based artist Mark Aerial Waller. Known for films in which scripted action has been improvised by the cast in fantastical settings such as a foam cave or a half completed housing development in Dakar, Waller (whose work is currently showing at tank.tv) makes artworks which draw on everything from Science fiction to Greek mythology.

Now he’s calling on Joe Public for help with creating his new commission for Wysing, entitled The Cassiopeia Plan. For the work – to be shot on location at Wysing – Mark would like 10 adults to participate in scripted scenarios around the site. Inspired by GK Chesterton’s classic anarchism’n'espionage novel The Man who was Thursday, the film will form the final work in a series of three filmic installations that will be shown in Wysing’s gallery from January 16 onwards.

If you fancy starting the decade by collaborating on an artwork that will be shown in galleries around the world, and are free on 4-7 January 2010, then  this could be your shot at stardom. To register your interest contact Lotte Juul Petersen on 01954 718881 or email lotte.juul.petersen@wysingartscentre.org
