Grove Park Carnival - Chutney Preserves River Dance


On Saturday12th August I am pleased to be taking part in Grove Park Carnival as part of Chutney Preserves River Dance alongside the artists Sarah Sparkes, Miyuki Kasahara and Rebecca Fiener.

The Chutney Preserves are a combination of village fete and art exhibition, they create one day public artworks which visitors can interact with and immerse themselves in. Inspired by the River Quaggy, the Chutney Preserves will be emerging from the waters with puppets masks and costumes.

My work for the Chutney Preserves inspired by the River Quaggy will be about the Kingfisher. The fantastic Quaggy Waterways Action Group had the river transformed from a concrete canal to the natural wetland it is today.  Operation Kingfisher is the name that the group gave to the grand design for the whole river. It was named this for the remaining Kingfishers that clung to the River Quaggy.
I will invite you to dress as a Kingfisher and fish for facts about the said bird near the banks of the Quaggy River.

Do come and join me and the other daughters of Chutney on Saturday from 12-5pm at Chinbrook Meadows, 
Amblecote Road, 
London, SE12

Lots of other good stuff happening on the day too so don't miss performances by Frog Morris, song, dance and a flea circus, Carnival Queen Mzz Kimberly, Calum F Kerr's new work 'Amulet Reunited (after E. Nesbit), Joanna Mcormick as the Chalkhill Butterfly and circus star Leah Kirkby will be there to teach a circus skills workshop

#51%RememberHer

I am very pleased to be showing in the #51%RememberHer which launches on International Women's Day


"Women are half of our history, half of our present and half of our future"

I will be showing new and old work themed around the women of music hall. Including my costume from my performance as Marie Lloyd and new work featuring the performer Florrie Forde.
The Memorial Community Church is dedicated to the local men who were killed in WW1. During this era music hall songs were used to boost moral and recruit troops. One of the most famous of these wartime songs being "Pack up Your troubles in your old kit bag", which was performed by Florrie Forde. The work in part explores the optimism and joy in the lyrics of the song versus the reality of lives lost.

What's the use of worrying? It never was worth while, So Pack up your troubles in your old kit-bag, And smile, smile, smile.”

Launch: March 8th 6 - 9pm (International Women's Day)
Opening times: 1 - 6pm Tues, Sat & Sun
Exhibition continues until April 8th

Curated by Rebecca Feiner


Launching on International Women╩╝s Day Wednesday March 8th #51%RememberHer references London's 51 per cent female population and is the inaugural exhibition of over 100 women artists featuring sculpture, painting, animation, installation, photography, drawing, performance, graffiti, spoken word, history walks, talks and special events throughout the month. 

#51% RememberHer provides a significant survey of the creative female talent who live, work, study or have a family connection to the creative melting pot of East London. 

Artists will animate the East Tower of the Byzantine style, Grade II listed church, spilling over into the South Hall and Upper Balcony. 

Curator Rebecca Feiner said "Women are half of our history, half of our present, and half of, all our futures. Culturally with Maria Balshaw taking over at London's Tate Modern, and politically women physically making their presence felt from Japan, to Poland, from Saudi Arabia to America and here in the UK, it really felt like the right time to celebrate female creativity and make this exhibition happen.”

Exhibition continues until April 8th at the Tower Gallery (East Tower), Memorial Community Church, 395 Barking Road, London E13.

#51%RememberHer is an off-site project by Elements Gallery London, the capital's first dedicated exhibition space for outdoor art.
