Come and see me perform ’12 Months’

HELLO TINKERS.

I’m doing a performance. A proper one that I won’t be able to run away from, or hide my face with a mask. I might zone out a bit. It’s about dissociation so that’ll work, I think.

SO…

’12 Months’ is a sound and live painting performance. I’m painting in response to the words I am saying, prose and journal entries I have carefully selected from 33 years of being a morose tart.

I’ll be doing the performance at the opening reception (yes, there will be alcohol), Thursday 23rd October 18.00 – 21.00, then the two following weekends from midday until 5pm, and finally on Saturday 8th November for our closing reception, again from 18:00-21:00.

Here’s the official word from the curators, Mark Scott-Wood and Hayley Hare, and more information about the other artists taking part (they are GOOD).

“The Lights Are On… is a group exhibition relating to and exploring issues of mental health, well-being and the quirks of human existence and takes it’s title from the saying ‘the lights are on but no one is home’ which alludes to the idea of someone being preoccupied, be it by an outside distraction or something more subconscious.

Artists taking part:

Siobhan Barr
Alex Dipple
Charlie Tuesday Gates
Mikey Georgeson
Hayley Hare
Liberty Hodes
Paul Kindersley
Matthew Lee Knowles
Gemma Murray
Kayleigh O’Keefe
Marie-Louise Plum
Josh Redman
Christina Violet Sabberton
Mark Scott-Wood

Address: Fox Court, 14 Grays Inn Rd, London WC1X 8HN, UK

New Folk Visionaries

My new exhibition, New Folk Visionaries, will be on show in the private function room at The Bell, as part of the E17 Art Trail, from May 31 – June 15. The show is open whenever the pub is – usually 12pm til late. I will put a link to the Art Trail listing and times as soon as their site is up (01/05/14).

As part of The Pack of Wolves collective, we take it in turns to curate shows, put on performances, facilitate workshops…and the rest. This gig is my doing.

We’ll be turning the private function room at the back of The Bell pub into a contemporary ‘hunting room’ full of folk, collected items, cabinet displays, skulls and horns, the uncanny and unsettling.

If you’re a fan of stitching, drawing, puppetry, film, sculpture, painted skulls and bone magic you’re most welcome at our show. If you’re not, you should still come. Don’t be scared. We don’t bite.

Featuring work from all the ‘Alpha Wolves’, Marie-Louise Plum, Spike Dennis, Layla RR Holzer and Faye Scott-Farrington, plus honorary wolf, Mark Scott-Wood.
