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

I’ve got some news for you good folks!

Next year I will be taking part in the 2nd International Mail Art exhibition at the Than Mór Mail Art
Museum, Nyiracsad, Hungary, organised by the local government of Nyíracsád and Ligetalja Tourist Association.

Lovely Cut-Click have scooped together all the work I did for them in a previous mail art exhibition which toured around the UK and I will be sending this off with a new batch of work.

This will be the final resting place of my mail art work as I have donated it to the Than Mór Museum. It will stay on exhibition there, rotating with other peoples work every 2-3 months.

The deadline for work is April 2012, so I am assuming that the exhibition will start in May/June. I will post up more news on this as soon as I have it.
