Just back the secret workshop deep in the country where preparations for Glastonbury are in full swing. Steel frames are coming together, the ‘barkers‘ have met, and the ‘oncers’ are emerging. As you can see the prizes are really coming along, 3 balls for knicker, 7 balls for £2. Try your luck in the unfairground at Glastonbury, between Shangrila & Arcadia. Look out for “CrackHeads” or “The Gobbler” sideshows with a difference from the twisted minds of the Dotmaster and Sam Haggerty.

High powered Glastonbury festival meeting at a secret location (a pikey camp in Worthing) quickly descends into target practice. Sam and Gobshite pump and load. We are Getting tooled up, lets hope the tool box is a little more expansive than the one pictured.
At Last finished, one of two small maquettes (one aluminum, one card) . Although made to test construction of the larger commission, these smaller ones threw up problems of their own. Some elements of the larger work could not be reduced due to their complexity. The dollar and Mao buck were silkscreened in these smaller editions to recreate the feel of the larger work in smaller scale. Both were both mounted on a backing board to raise them off the wall.
In the studio with Berit and silkscreens today. Playing with recent elements, trying versions, overprinting old work, trying out materials. The best bits are those long shots, the bits of things you remember you have and make them better by adding something. The worst, the things you forget to try and the things that looked good, but now don’t. More shots on Flickr
You’ve seen the pics, read the press, now see the video.
This week the full Unfairground ™ Glasto crew got together for the first time… Yes it was messy, scaff pipe, wood and general workings are getting sorted, and next week the side shows go into production. But don’t worry you will be in safe hands….check out Fatties below.
The Robin Hood Tax were drumming up support yesterday with Mutate Britain at Cordy house in Shoreditch. An morning press call brought the cameras out on a thankfully sunny day. A small pop up show accompanied the proceedings and can be visited on Saturday and Sunday at Cordy house, Curtain road, Shoreditch. An article can be found here.
Just when you thought the old dog was dead, you find yourself back in cordy house with the usual suspects causing chaos. This time its the Robin Hood Tax , Dr D pasting up the walls outside, Teddy B doing the dog while Pete Dunn and Kevin sort the gallery upstairs. Thursday night see’s an opening of sorts of a like minded bunch supporting something that makes sense….i know advice from the delusional, but cordy house is alive again! Got some stuff upstairs in the show and some on the street below.
