July 21- July 29, 2016, "Primal Void" Tempting Failure 5, London, UK.

Primal Void is a four hour long attempt to extract the Void at the center, or the source, of phenomenal existence from a large stone and release it into the vast nothingness of time. Failure is an option.

Tempting Failure is a festival of international performance art & noise art, showcasing under-represented or extreme artwork that may interrogate risk & transgressive practice.

To date we have programmed over 125 artists to perform, mentored 5 graduate artists, booked 39 artist speakers, and supported 25 artists through masterclasses.

Conceived in 2011, initially as part of his PhD at University of Bristol to examine specific phenomenological concerns around body art, Tempting Failure was founded by Thomas John Bacon. TF then subsequently expanded to become an annual event and arts organisation.

Tempting Failure is invested in the support of Performance Art & Noise Art, as well as the professional development of artists at all stages of their careers and the education of all.
