Artist House in Brixton



Aaargh! Apart from being filled up with lots and lots of things, my life is incredibly messy at the moment. The only place I can currently call a 'home' is extremely unstable and I am growing tired of it.

Still, there's quite a bit of nice stuff happening that I consider myself happy to be a part of.

For instance, I have a few small and playful sculptures in a very nice show in Brixton at the moment. I failed at writing about it earlier because I didn't have much internet access for the last few weeks. Oh well.

Yeah:

ARTIST HOUSE 2 14TH NOVEMBER 7PM:

Emma Alonze, Rob Bellman, Luke Burton, Rose Gibbs, Aidan O'Sullivan, Alexander Page, Nick Pankhurst, Simon Schafer, Nadia Visram. In a former studio and chapel in Herne Hill a disparate group, some of whom share a studio, will exhibit their work. From 7pm 14th November - 21st November 10am - 5pm.

39 Herne Place, London, SE24 0EN

Bis einer heult.



Finally here's some documentation for my most recent art endeavour. I have a piece in this show 'Batman Elektronik' in Berlin right now. After not having had anything sculptural out for more than a year, this feels a bit like a comeback thing.

Bis einer heult

I'm not sure how and when I got inspired to build something out of inflatable weapons, but once I had them, I instantly felt the old love of materials and working with space again.

Inflatable Weapons

Also, my housemates were delighted when the first batch arrived:

I was surprised by how easy it actually was to glue those things together, but I didn't expect them to be made that badly. Over the course of building the sculpture, more or less every time I inflated it, I had to discover another seam that had cracked. A main offender was the gun I found this bizarre review for:

Instead of being 'pretty cool' as the lady here keeps insisting, this peace of shit had its seams ripping apart in different places at least 6-7 times, and of course it wasn't the only one doing that. Which meant that the sculpture most of the time deflated within minutes after being pumped up regardless of how many patches I'd already put on.

I thought of finding some automated solution for inflating it, but after some fruitless efforts of trying to find a strong enough electric pump, I decided to just do it by hand around every half hour during the private view. So if you happen to be in Berlin some time between now and the 19th of January, you're either gonna have to ask the gallery staff to inflate it for you or even better, do it yourself, to see it in all its glory...

Night shift revisited



It's been close to a year now since I had the Night Shift show at Simon Oldfield Gallery. Yesterday, I was surprised in a very very nice way by Rebecca Helen Page, who has filmed bits of the performance I've done there and uploaded them to Vimeo.

It was quite a noisy performance with very weird sound and I had very short hair at that time.

The desk I had my instruments on was absolutely gorgeous. It felt like my own private TARDIS.

Thanks a lot Rebecca.

of this event I cannot foresee the end



Exciting times!

There's a show coming up that I'm gonna be in.

Here's the official blurb:

Forman's Smokehouse Gallery presents Of this Event, I cannot foresee the end. - video art / video performance / installation

Private view: Thursday 1st March 6-9pm Exhibition runs 2nd-30th March 2012, Thu-Fri 5-9pm, Sat-Sun 12-5pm

Stour Road, Hackney Wick, E3 2NT London, United Kingdom

The featured artists appropriate approaches from scientists in order to gain insights, accumulate data or choose their observational vantage point. By defining a framework wherein a staged experiment or action can take place, the artists test the boundaries of our earthly existence, everyday life, patterns of social behaviour and virtual reality. A distanced camera perspective witnesses and frames the performance - events with unknown outcome - wherein chance and failure play part. The video works go beyond documentation demanding independence from the prior event and share the element of suspense, surprise and humour.

Artists: Memo Akten ● Sophie Clements ● Callum Cooper ● George Eksts ● Kris Emmerson ● Samuel Levack and Jennifer Lewandowski ● Santiago Ortega ● Clifford Sage ● David Sherry ● James Stringer ● Anais Tondeur ● Helen Turner ● Pablo Wendel ● der Warst (Simon Schäfer)

Audio-visual performances at the opening night: der Warst (Simon Schäfer) Brood Ma (Quantum Natives) DJ Tesco (Quantum Natives).

Curated by Carmen Billows

The exhibition also marks the second anniversary of Forman's Smokehouse Gallery. All welcome.
