God bless Bill Drummond...
man and renowned art terrorist BILL DRUMMOND has turned to soup for his next project.
Drummond, who once burnt £1 million in cash on a Scottish island, will spend a week in Northern Ireland in May preparing soup.
The stunt is part of Drummond’s The Soup Line, and will run as part of Belfast’s Cathedral Quarter Arts Festival from April 30 to May 5.
“In May 1998, Bill made soup for people in a house in Belfast,” said Sarah Hughes, a festival spokesperson. “In January 2003 he made soup for a people in a house in Nottingham. He’s now taken a map of the British Isles and drawn a line across it – right through Belfast and Nottingham – and called it The Soup Line.
“Anybody living on the line is welcome to invite him to their home and
have him make soup for their family and close friends.”
The line passes through some curious towns, including Inch Burnfoot in
Donegal and Portavogie outside of Belfast.
In 2002, Drummond launched the silent protest playing cards, which were used as a silent call for peace. Most notoriously, in 1994 he and fellow KLF cohort Jimmy Cauty burnt £1 million in new banknotes on the Scottish island of Jura.
