SLAM

Let me say this to you by means of an opening hypothesis (mummy did science):

“Sometimes you dont want an iwhatever.. Sometimes you want a piece of paper.”

Here is one such instance.

South London Art Map control the first friday in the month and have branded it according.

We r detecting a trend for branding days and times.

Like all the olympics business is mildly disturbing.

God that was politics.

I do culture.

So we hit the galleries of london's glittering Peckham with an eventual hard copy.

Its lovely having them open late (he lies in… Dont start me) and lovely having a map but we a tiny bit feel its quite a dashing about 2 hours.

Tho if wed thought about it a bit more.

We need to be more succinct.

Lewisham Art Space: yeah, abstract.

Peckham Space: yeah, multisensory.

South London Gallery and Southwark Old Town Hall: yeah, now this we really liked. Big. Normally we like small/short but for art we like big/grand. A whole white room full of trophies. This is 5 star eye candy. Oh! The themes!!

The town hall… Remember when we went to Hornsey Town Hall for the jewish thing?

Of course you do. Well this was all like that. Films in council chambers maximises the coolness.

Go,

Love,

We didnt have the emotional energy for this blog yday for a number of reasons.

We always protested… “Hornsey is the place to be.”

It, like many things, fell on deaf ears but me and the boywonder @albiestar are often right.

Homsey Town hall itself is interesting… One of the first modernist structures or something.

Its all v art deco.

Anyway its all v art too because it houses @artangel projects.

At the moment in its corridors and council chambers it houses neon signs, memorabilia, posters and 3 films by Yael Bartana.These films are about a Polish jew who begins by calling the diaspora who have left Poland to return and assert there jewishness alongside the polishness in a celebration of now.

I cant really do this amount of history, culture and religion justice.

Im a staffordshire bull terrier.

But if you’re in Hornsey at the weekend-and lets face it who isnt?-

Go.

*****

Sashayed along then to laughter yoga where we got chucked out The Royal Festival Hall…

But you’ve gotta laugh?…

Surely?

Love,
