FETEY

A little app, a lot of london.

*****

Today Instagram reminded me of the Horniman Museum.

It was doing a fetey thing where there were all the feathers and fancy of carnival.

But 1st I had to go to the beautiful aquarium which I love.

It’s only small but it has…

Some words…

Starfish, poisonous frogs, butterflies (I know… Cheating), four eyed fish, seahorses, jellyfish, crabs and anemones.

Lovely,

Cheers,

BOX

Humorous incident on overground from Highbury:

Punter 001: Is this train for Crystal Palace?
Punter 002: No, you want the other platform mate.

[punter 001 dismounts]
(albiepanick for albiestar… he thinks… “Oh”)
Announcement: This is a london overground service to Crystal Palace.
Punter 002 and your hero @albiestar: [grin then laugh]
Your hero @albiestar: I wasnt confident enough to correct you!

No you cant have an @audioboo… you’ll take my word for it.

We like things you came ‘nip in and out of’ almost as much as we like things that are free here @thedogwhatblogs.

Not by great forethought, design or destiny we found ourself again this week in london’s glittering ‘Shoreditch.’
There is a place called box park.
It is lots of shops in boxes.
It sells things that are coolio and nice and then you go “how much. No that’s too expensive.”

“The advent of the camera phone… has shifted photography back to the centre of pop culture.”

And allows him to take many pictures of me from various beguiling angles.
I have a very prominent willy.

Anyway, there is an exhibition of camera phone pix and accompanying it some poetry and noisy music.

Im more a Radio 3 man but when in Rome.

We say: Coolio.

“The city clings to you like a bad cologne.”

Amen, brother.

SHATTERED

Yesterday in the midst of shattered glass and life we traipsed round Bermondsey and Rotherhithe on a one man (and his dogwhatblogs) south london art map tour.

Yes, you’re right, we went on one before with the instagram folk.

We cant be originally cultural every day.

To be briefly vulgar you pay what you afford and then have a lovely time discover hidden gem galleries.

We first went the west lane south gallery and saw robert cary williams haunting/disturbing/marvellous blend of fashion and sculpture ‘Jackets for Hooligans.’

Then to vibe gallery for a collection of works around the concept of the Annulus…

Time to cut and paste…

The Annulus is a term used to describe the space between two concentric cylinders. The inner cylinder is the central core the outer cylinder, the periphery.

 

One can translate this idea of the space in between, to metaphorically describe the art world. For example we would locate the Damian Hirsts of the world close to the central core and we would locate those often described as outsider artists on the periphery. Our aim is to act as a vehicle with which to navigate the annulus.”

There you go then. Paint tubes on the floor. Like our house. Shards of glass on the floor. Like our house.

The next bit was awesome…

In the amazing v22 space we saw some performance art involving some pendulums…

Okay we’re not selling it again… Heres a vid…

Ok you have to be there…

It really is a tremendous use of the vastness of the space.

Where else? Finally the curiously cool worlds end space…

Pub stroke gallery. Lovely.

We like stuff about time and the painted over mirrors gave the boy wonder @albiestar a further chance to take a pic of himself… His favourite pastime.

We are so effortlessly cool.

Love,

Harleyxx

LOOK AT ME

Look at me blogging again!

Today me and the boy wonder went on a photo walk.

It was almost so unbelievably exciting that we exploded.

Because it combined photography with art galleries.

Which could be any day.

But its good to have an excuse.

STEP ONE… Instagram…

There are 1000s of galleries in this city providing incredible eye food for free.

Today we went on a tour with this…
