Finally, after months holed up in my oddball attic, painting whiskers on old clowns and talons on dirty kittens I have finished my collection of work, called Happyland, to be exhibited at Postcards Festival.
Postcards Festival is at Jacksons Lane theatre, Highgate, London. It is a summer festival featuring the “hottest talent in circus, cabaret and performance”. There will be site-specific performance, triple bills, one-nighters and special guests. My work will be nestled in amongst the performers and cabaret; I have the run of the building where art space is concerned and have created an exhibition that lives within the nooks and crannies at Jacksons Lane.
Happyland is a vast collection of 3D objects, masks, appropriated items, pen and ink portraits and customised museum boxes. Come and meet brain-eating slug men, jolly, headless ballerinas and a schizophrenic jamboree of clown folk with dubious intentions.
Best viewed through a child’s eyes. Don’t be frightened…nothing is real.
Happyland will stay up at Jackson’s Lane until the end of August.
