So, it’s a new year and I’m back after a busy few months away from the blog. Life has been rather full and exciting here: I’ve finished a few months teaching at WAPA, Weston College, which was throughly enjoyable; and Mr P and I have recently bought a narrowboat on which to live. We’re moving over to the other side of Bath this weekend, so if you’re ever over that way at all then do keep an eye out for us! In art, as well as in life, things are good and busy.
Last year ended with a few performances at great events like Action Art Now in York, and at Beacons Icons and Dykons at the Cube, Bristol. And this year has begun with a very productive January (there’s no time for winter blues here!). A performance of mine is to be included in Emergency INDEX, an annual publication of performance produced by some amazing individuals at Ugly Duckling Press, NYC, and I’ve also been invited to do a performance at (In)Xclusion, an event in Leeds on the 25th / 26th February. I’ll be making a new collaborative work with partner in crime H.Ren. It should be fun. The event looks really interesting, as does the artist line up, and it’ll be great to do some more work up North. Also, I’ve recently had confirmed my first ever solo show at Motorcade / FlashParade in Bristol. This is really exciting, as it represents an opportunity to take the plunge with more installative work I’ve been experimenting with, and to envision my work in a different context and in a gallery all of its own. The show’s called ‘Overgave (Surrender)’ and opens on Thursday 8th March, with the exhibition on until Sunday 11th. I’ll put up more details when I have them… As always, it’s all go!
