Well, its been a while….are you still there?!!
OK, to get you up to speed, here’s 2012 to date…
Well, in April, In Vino Veritas, our first collective show (of only our work) opened at Arthouse in London. The private view did not disappoint, with a healthy turnout, the subject of our show in attendance with his family and his wine, an impromptu music performance and a cake that got as much attention as our photographs. (it seems no-one outside the north-east has seen photos printed onto sugar paper!) You can see more about it here.
We returned from London, then, hitting the ground running we took part in International Arts Residency, Nomadic Village 2012. It just so happened that the residency was on our doorstep……..but hey, international artists have to live somewhere! With borrowed accommodation, a caravan with swanky awning for Richard and Lucy, and a 1968 VW camper for me……we enjoyed the only sunny week of the year, tested out Richards ‘office in a van’ complete with standard lamp, collaborated with NPIA, a forensic training centre resulting in 20 kids and a journalist dressing up as CSI’s and combing the site for evidence of travel, and made new work entitled Foreign Bodies.
You can read more here. Foreign Bodies was then reconfigured, using forensic evidence bags into a touring format, and joined our Captain Klaus on a tour through Europe back to Austria.
Meanwhile…..elsewhere in May……our 2011 work for Collectives Encounter was invited to stroll over to Poland for FOTOFESTIWAL 2012 in LODZ. The multimedia piece created as part of Re:Mapping The Flaneur was shown at The Collective Space alongside Sputnik Photos, NOOR, TerraProject and Verso, the latter two collectives coincidentally contributed to our original Flanerie.
So, catching up now……..and there’s still time to see this……Richard’s Lost Waltz , an outdoor installation curated by Wideyed and Human Endeavour is showing at the Brighton Photo Fringe and has been extended until 27th November.
Finally, and more on this in a bit. In Vino Veritas is heading to Paris! ……..very soon….
