Packing up Whittling Down

After the exhausting exhibition week which could only be described as a blur, its now time to clear out all of the design studio’s, pack up and get going!

Currently house hunting for a place in Liverpool for the Hope Street Festival, anyone got any ideas of 2 bedroom flats which are dirt cheap/ live-able let us know!

Nicky Speed and Nicola Gaskell from Edge Hill have both done a run up article on the exhibition.

Here’s a documentation of my shockingly bad hair day…

Thank you for everyone’s kind comments and to those who came last week.

 

Design and Visual Exhibition

A mad few days for us all. A set up, launch party and private view …excessive cakes and few too many glasses of wine. Thanks to everyone who helped and came along to show their support. I couldn’t have done it without you!

The exhibition is still running until Friday! so if you can make it down to Edge Hill we are in Hale Memorial Hall just on the way through to the Hub. ( you can’t miss it!)

Heres a few cheeky snaps i took today. Its well worth the trip.

Dissertation Doomsday

The past week ive been at Open Skies Gallery in Southport with ‘TITS, WOMB,MONITORS and para-SITES :The Instability of Flesh’  on Market Street.

An interesting week to say the least … a few strange residents … but some really positive feedback from others. Thank you to everyone came, here are a few pics…

We’ve only gone and done it…

Last week myself and good friend Jim Hendley went for an interview in Liverpool for the post of ‘Hope Street Festival Emerging Artist.’

http://www.hope-street.org/index.html

The full time programme gives opportunities for budding artists in all fields of performance to work with the worlds leading. Hope street encourages pushing the boundaries with site-specific performance to create innovative work.

After a nail biting two days wait we received the email that would decide our fate for the next 6 months. Jim is now Creative Director on the programme and have been given the position of Designer.

In the midst of a dissertation project , it all seems to be happening at once!

The position begins June 11, we will be working on a number of performances . A site specific piece inspired by Monet, Turner, Trombly exhibition in collaboration with the  Tate. ‘Innovasion 2’, in partnership with Liverpool Biennial, taking place in Everton and a mini- Olympics as part of the hope street festival.

The programme is intended to give key skills to apply yourself professionally. It has certainly given me a bit more confidence in myself. The idea of the 9-5 in Bury was just not an option.

So in a month or so time, its time to find a place to live in liverpool!
