I had the pleasure to perform my art work ‘Crystalize’ at the Roundhouse in Camden Town, London. For you as a reader to explain the interaction of my work and the intimacy I have with each person when we meet, Amanda Palmer’s TedTalk about the ‘Art of Asking‘ might explain some form of what it is like for me when these connections happen and where my art and other artistic mediums are going. My view is ‘selfish art is dead’ and art now is moving into being collaborative and ‘giving back to others’ and society. I am still thinking a lot about this and in some ways still at the beginning of these thoughts. In the meantime find some images from my performance. Photos by the superb Shadow.
I am very much looking forward to performing at The Roundhouse in Camden Town. Having performed both at Somerset House and the Victoria & Albert Museum in recent years it is pleasing to keep developing my art form in such prestigious venues. I will be showing ‘Crystalized’ from 1-4pm on May 11th as part of The Accidental Festival. Here is a recent image of one of the banners displaying down the main high street promoting the event with the Roundhouse underneath. Can you spot a familiar face on the banner?
I was privileged enough to be part of The Coffee Art Project in aid of Project Waterfall during The London Coffee Festival. I donated my ‘Coffee Bean’ head picture below which was seen by over 15,000 people during the festival and will be auctioned off for charity to raise funds for clean water to communities in Tanzania. Coffee power!
