CHOPS  (leeds, uk)
CHOPS does its own work for whoever will listen. they dispense with the repertoire of knowledge and experience that is presumed to be required to appreciate art. they replace the elite, intellectual pleasure of "getting it" with the egalitarian fun-house pleasure of disorientation, of trying to understand something that you cannot. CHOPS makes you as one in anxious, enjoyable failure. you may become aware of the vast perceptual resources that await your command just beyond the threshold of your knowing. these, of course, can only be inferred on the rare occassions when they fail to serve your purposes. CHOPS provides picnics for these occassions.
