Doug Fishbone's Leisure Land Golf at NAE Nottingham

Rather interesting 10 hole mini-golf installation at New Art Exchange recently!

Entitled "Doug Fishbone's Leisure Land Golf", each hole is designed by a different artist, and each with a different point to make. By way of example, three of the holes that particularly caught the attention of BFTF are shown below.

"Putting a Hole in the Wall"
Here Yara El-Sherbibia offers players the chance to navigate their way through a series of checkpoint and boundaries, a reminder of daily life in territories under occupation.

"The Bridge of Konigsburg"
This "hole" is designed by Eyal and Ines Weizman, and is based on a mathematical problem that asks how one can move between all the land areas by crossing each bridge only once.

"Football Cloud"
Yinka Shonibare's contribution displays the economic tension between Africa and the West as a mushroom cloud made of footballs.
