Sometimes the travelling is as good as the arriving.

GHANA 4

I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

*****

First we gave 20 ceedes to the man who coordinates.

Second we got in the van and went to the town.

Next the coordinators bought some stuff.

Then we got into the van an went to a village down a bumpy path.

Then everyone sat in a circle in the village.

After that volunteers and locals introduced themselves.

Then the chief handed out an alcoholic drink.

Then there was a demonstration of a water filter.

Finally the stuff was given out.

*****

Fruit cartons, rice, footballs, colouring books, filters, soap, noodles, t shirts, paper planes, shoes, yoyos, golf clubs, stencil sets.

*****

I didn’t know whether to laugh or cry.

I was destroyed.

GHANA 2

If you imagine the big brother house.
With 25 people and one tap. But a telly.
That’s what it’s like.

*****

I think I’d be nominated for not being exciting enough. But maybe saved on a public vote.

*****

This is the diary room.

GHANA

There are no other staffies here!

******

There are no art galleries here!

******

There are palms, chickens, goats, bananas, friendly locals, some electricity, lizards, stalls, mountains, non flushing toilets, tasty joliff rice, SIM cards, snakes, churches, meats, suspect driving and enthusiastic children.

POMP

I’m not causing merry hell around other dogs in Tottenham.
Oh no.
I’m in Paris

*****

I have been to the Centre Georges Pompidou.
That’s Georges Pompidou Centre in English.
There were exhibitions.
Some of the art I liked and some I didn’t.

*****

In Paris there are lots of nice caf├ęs for relaxing.
I’m not sure why I’d be anywhere else.

A green triangle.

Scalene, I believe.

YELLOW

So today, right…
There was a red square and a yellow rectangle.

*****

#radicalgeometry @royalacademy.

South American, innit.

*****

Some words: colours, black, white, shapes, wire, oo, South America, drawing without paper, no lift, tired

*****

“These works challenged the perceptions of what exactly it was the viewer was looking at.”

Hmm.

It was just a black square.

Hmm.

“Only feelings matter.”

*****

The build-up consisted of talk of needing the toilet.
And anger.

*****

“There is no interval and strictly no re-admittance.”

Fascist, totalitarian regime.

We were going to leave after 60 of the 101 minutes.

To sock it to the man.

*****

But we didn’t.

The flashy lights were compelling.

Some words: flashy lights, needing a wee, doublethink, needing a wee, thought police, needing a wee, war, peace, needing a wee.

Being a dog,

I weed in the house instead.

They were out several hours, what with the tower.
