Absolutely Everything (2)

Absolutely Everything – the exhibition which I curated at TAAG, Teignmouth – finished on November 3rd. During the week TAAG had almost 700 visitors. About half were attending workshops, but many of them also visited the exhibition. We had plenty of positive responses – some of which are recorded in the comment book (shown in my other blog post here). What follows are some photos of my contribution, which was set in gallery #2 of the TAAG space, following a last minute cancellation.

Baltic Wharf Performance Walk

In my more detailed blog, I look back on a ‘Performance Walk’ in Totnes led by Phil Smith that I went on two years ago (link here).

Totnes walk 007

This posting was prompted firstly by a facebook reminder; but also by the fact that last weekend I did another psychogeographic walk in the landscape around Bitton, facilitated by Christina Sanders; followed by some experimental land art in Yarner Wood, led by Amanda Pellatt. Both were entertaining and instructive.

I hope to post something about both those activities shortly, after I have recovered from yesterday’s experience of Philip Hoare‘s the Tale in Torbay.

PCA Fine Art Degree Show 2017

Our Fine Art Degree Show took place at the Regent Street Studios during June 2017. Here are some photographs of my installation ‘Buy one, Get one free’, which is about our mindless consumption of material goods and information. The housewife, from 1950s advertising, is a proxy for neoliberal capitalism and the multinationals’ global economy. The boxes are home to those for whom the system has no use. The viewing portal offers a glimpse of the past and present, and of the future if we don’t fight back.

‘Five Years’ at Devonport Live

From the 21st to 27th April I had a short solo retrospective ‘Five Years’ at the Devonport Live studio space in Plymouth. It showed a selection of my work from the past five years, linked to the music of David Bowie.  The exhibition was extended from an original three days to a week and we had some interesting visitors, including a woman who had worked for Bowie at Mainman in the early 1970s.
