Masked Interaction & Group Show at Wood St Indoor Market

Hello folks! I’ve got a bit of news for you. Three bits in fact…

‘Archie Goes To Sleep’ – image from HAPPYLAND

First up, I’m part of a group show curated by Waltham Forest Arts Club, opening Saturday 4th February (yep, this Saturday!) at Shop 40, Wood Street Indoor Market, Walthamstow. Each of the artists have one small piece in the exhibition which will run for 2 weeks. I’m exhibiting the piece above, ‘Archie Goes To Sleep’ from my solo exhibition, HAPPYLAND.

Space Made Live, Arthouse, Glasgow 12-13/06/10.

Secondly, on Saturday 11th February, the launch day of the rejuvination of the indoor market, I will become a live installation in the gallery space. I am doing a masked interaction, something I rarely do these days, so come on down, put on a mask and interact with me! It’s not scary, I promise. Basically, I wear a mask, you wear a mask and we chat about a made up thing. There are also other performances on this day, including a cellist and poets. I will be doing the masked performance from 1:00pm. There’ll be lots of great stuff on as well as the official opening of 20 other shops!

Thirdly… in April I have an exhibition on with photographer Timothy Kraemer at Shop 40. The exhibition will run from April 14th-21st and there’ll be more news about it soon!

Cheerio for now.
