If you’re tired of watching the professionals participate in relays this summer, why not watch the creatives try their hand instead? The Art Relay exhibition at the KK Outlet (until August 30) has challenged teams of four artists to create something Olympic inspired. The first has free artistic reign, but as the ‘baton’ (or artwork) is passed along, the original piece is altered and transformed. The end results are very different: while some works emphasise the fun mood of the Olympics, others look at its darker side, such as drug abuse and society surveillance. Bryonie Carolan
