I’m bringing two exhibitions to The Winns Gallery in Lloyds Park, Walthamstow, running back-to-back in the first two weeks of July 2013. First up is Once Upon Again, an exhibition brought to you by the Pack of Wolves collective (I’m a wolf!), curated by Layla Holzer and Spike Dennis. The show debuted at Milkwood Gallery in Cardiff at the end of February this year. The exhibition takes inspiration from folk and fairy tales, retelling them in their original style, dark, sexy and cautionary, as they were originally intended, before being sanitised for mass-production.

The second exhibition is one you’ll be familiar with – my travelling Mail Art collection! Yep, it’s back, having travelled around the country, picking up tons more art on its way. This will be the last time you can see the collection in the UK as I will be sending it far, far away to another land in the not-too-distant future. I’m super excited to have the mail art collection back with all the new additions. I intend to catalogue it all online before I send it away.
Check back here soon for more news of the upcoming exhibitions.
Once Upon Again
27 February – 9 March 2013
Exhibition Launch: 2 March 2013
Join us at Milkwood Gallery on Saturday the 2 March 2013 for an evening of live music and puppet shows. Entertainment will include shadow puppetry and a Punch and Judy show.
The Pack of Wolves‘ next exhibition opens at Milkwood Gallery on the 27 February and features new work by our artists inspired by folk and fairy tales. As the title suggests the exhibition will be focussed upon the idea of re-imagined narratives – taking existing fairy and folk tales and retelling them. This follows the tradition of stories being passed from generation to generation over centuries, through cultures and societies, books, art and film.
The Pack of Wolves will retell fairy tales, as they should be – as they once were, bringing back old values and themes… Once Upon Again. The artists will take inspiration from existing fairy and folk stories and either reinvent them or present new stories using visual narratives. Fairy tales should not only enchant and entertain the audience but also illuminate and inform.
