Snapshots taken by participants of their JUNGLE FEVER adventures in London, Beirut and Singapore and chosen by them to become postcards representing each location, thus subverting the way touristic destinations are normally advertised and manufactured, as generic and idealised images of the usual places and attractions.
JUNGLE FEVER (wish you were here)
was initiated in 2011, originally as an attempt to reclaim Leisure and Tourism, by subverting the strategies of their consumption for collective explorations of personal borders, as if they were exotic or unchartered territory. The project has evolved in response to what fellow junglers contributed along the way. It was thought that perhaps it is not just Tourism that needs to be reclaimed, since hand in hand, the media and the global economy have transformed the world into a glossy attraction, and its inhabitants into tourists and consumers.
It is inspired by Rober Filliou insightful words: “ Leisure will have an important role in society. .. The role of the artist is to promote the creative use of leisure and creativity as a way of life, but also as a weapon against alienation” (Teaching and learning as performing art, 1970.)
