WET

“No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No. No.”
“Its conceptual, Eli. You need to give it a bit of time.”
Toddlers, eh?
‘H2O Art of Wet’ at The Undercroft, Norwich.

*****

“Down. Down. Down. Down. Down. Down. Down. Down. Down. Down.”
Its under the market square. Look.

“Out. Out. Out. Out. Out. Out. Out. Out. Out. Out.”
“I can’t deal with conceptual art and you running amok.”

*****

Some words: water, plastic, water, plastic, horny face, bucket, spade, love, hate, indifference, jelly, puddles, sea, splash, water.”
Some words from a two year old. “Wet. Wet. Wet. Wet. Wet. Wet. Wet. Wet. Wet. Wet.”

“I know you are but I can’t change you here.”

5 Stars.

Cheers,

“Yeah, yeah. I know, but apparently… guess what? It didn’t used to be that way! Yeah and people were, like, okay and everything!”

“It’s called Visible Girls Revisited. At the Norwich Arts Centre. In 1981 a lady called Anita Corbin took wonderful photos of women from counter cultures… Yes I know those are big words for a 1 year old. She then recently tried to track them down on Facebook and things. No, no the photos were unedited. And they didn’t have social media then.”

“Yeah, alot of that I didn’t get… but I think we’re meant to think about things.”

*****

“The government announced in October that it will no longer be capping housing benefit for supported housing. This is a big win for Rethink Mental Illness.”

It was an exhibition at The Forum in Norwich. All the art was by people who had suffered from mental health difficulties.

Eli did stop yelling randomly to say he liked the “dog.” Because he can say it.
Alyssa liked the fox.
Colin yelled out randomly to say he liked this one:

We all loved the story.

“Thanks to thousands of campaigners campaigning with us on PIP the government have announced that they will not be challenging a court ruling from December which stated that last year’s changes to PIP were ‘blatantly discriminatory’ towards people with mental illness.”

Battles fought and won. Battles ongoing.

UNCOOPERATIVE

I can imagine, as Rembrandt was sitting at his easel in the 17th century… he was thinking:
“One day they’ll reproduce this scene in a provincial castle-come-gallery in 21st Century England so people can dress their tired/uncooperative babies up as me to share on their computers.”
And some of their dads will enjoy it too.


Sometimes things for the last hour are only 2 pounds or something coz you don’t get long. 

Long enough with a screaming baby.

I KNOW

Strolled to an urban centre for some regional culture and regional gins.

*****

“21st century humanity feels adrift in a sea of lies, deception and falsity.”

Blimey.

Seems Scrabble is the answer. 


I always knew it.

The excellent #nickwarbuton @norwichartscentr.

There was also mustard seeds in a frame…

And a celebrity breath auction.

The regional gins were lovely.
