So, after applying to exhibit an artwork in the United Kingdom, and being accepted, I now find myself facing the task of getting a large sculptural installation overseas. Without breaking the budget. Or the sculpture.
Whilst undertaking said research, I came across a list of what cannot be imported into the UK. Whilst most of it is to be expected (animals and such) a few items struck me as slightly amusing, including:
- soiled clothing and rags
- electrical machinery (it is unclear what this constitutes?)
- horror comics
- salt, sulphur (dammit!)
- tools, cutlery
Does a kinetic sculpture fall under 'electrical machinery' or 'tools'?
