Afternoon tea with a contemporary artist

On Friday last week, I had the very great fortune to meet Ricardo Cinalli, an Argentinian Contemporary Artist whose incredible studio is in an ex-Hugenot weavers shop in Spitalfields.  We talked about life, the problems facing humanity, and his passion for art.  Cinalli is known for his style and passion for the renaissance painters, but then draws this form into contemporary thoughts, scenes and issues.  He is very interested in contemporary humanity, how we are driven by incredible passion and creativity but at the same time, such brokenness and destructiveness.

Cinalli has contributed a considerable number of pieces of work both as paintings, sculpture and frescos.  The most famous is the fresco in the Duomo of Terni in Italy.  Ricardo is very interested in our Arts Cafe Lounge, and is keen to exhibit in it if and when it gets set up – which would be fantastic!

Ricardo is intending to come to Moot sometime, so keep an eye out for him.  We will be exploring the possibility of a podcast and possibly an evening discussing art in the fullness of time.

Urban Art Fair 2010

Hello everyone.

I thought I’d let you know that I’m going to be exhibiting my artwork at the Urban Art Fair 2010 in Brixton, as I did last year.

It’s one of those lovely quirky annual London-type events. Held in Brixton in July, a street is closed off to traffic, and artists are given a pitch to hang their works.

As the website say: “For the ninth year running the residents of Josephine Avenue will be transforming their sleepy, tree lined street into a bustling exhibition space. With a hundred and fifty photographers, printers and painters exhibiting this is our biggest event yet. Entry is FREE and with prices ranging from under a tenner to over a thousand pounds this makes it a truly affordable event for all art lovers, whatever your budget.”

A percentage of the proceeds from sales on Sunday goes to the Trinity Hospice and the British Home.

The event is held on 17th & 18th July, 10am-6pm in Josephine Avenue, London SW2.

Do drop by if you’re in London then – would be lovely to see you all!

Video above is from last year’s fair.

I’m Lost without Your Rhythm

An exhibition of Johanna Billing‘s performace work is open at the Camden Arts Centre, London, until September 13th.

Billing’s videos reflect on routine, rehearsal and ritual with an emphasis on the fragility of individual performance and power of collective experience.

Her new work is based around the recording of a live performance of dance ‘learned’ or performed by amateur Romanian dancers in Iasi (pronounced ‘yash’), during Periferic 8 Biennial of Contemporary Art “Art as Gift” in October 2008. This piece moved me deeply. Billing manages to allow the performer to be who they are at the same time as bringing their individual movemnt into a collective pattern.

Camden Arts Centre is a recently redevelopped centre with a great cafe and bookshop. Definitely reccommended for someone with a morning off.

TWO GREAT SHOWS!

If you’ve been thinking where the heck is David Harris? the answer is that he’s been working on the design of two shows that both open tomorrow.

BUNK at the Kings Head is a 1-hour lunchtime production about a girl called Eve. She’s an 18 year old who gets angry and moves out of home. Unaware of how to get into a government run hostel she books herself into a traveller’s hostel.

There are performances of BUNK every day from tomorrow onwards (except Mondays) until Sunday 9th August. 1pm. Angel Tube.

The second of the two performances, Tis’ Pitty she’s a Whore is playing at the White Bear Theatre, Kennington. I have been assisting in the design of this one. Lots of blood….and incest. Also starts tomorrow and runs every day until August 9th. 7.30pm. Sun 5pm.

The Urban Art Fair

As many of you may know, I’m intending to show my art work at Brixton’s Urban Art Fair this year. I’ve been meaning to blog this for ages, but the dates are rapidly approaching, so I thought it would be good to let you know. It’s on Sat. 18th & Sun 19th July on Josephine Avenue, halfway up Brixton Hill in London.

The Urban Art Fair is one of those amazingly eccentric London events that happens seemingly at random – a load of artists take over a street for a week, and hang their pictures for sale on the railings for people to come and look at and hopefully buy. It’s all arranged with the Lambeth Council of course, and all above board. Just have to hope that the weather holds out.

I’ve been every year for about 4 years, and always keep meaning to exhibit, but this is the first year I’ve got myself in gear, so it would be great to see you all. A great day out. I can recommend the “Negril” restaurant for lunch. If you want a sneaky preview of what I’ve been working on, then check out my blog.

Otherwise – See you there!

London Fairtrade Conference January 2009

Just in case you missed this, but Moot’s commitment to Fair Trade is at the heart of the cafe church we want to set up soon.

A Girl and a Box

This is a recording of Mooter David Harris’s design for his dance show for his Wimbledon Art School course. There is something beautiful and mystical about the interaction between the box and the girl, where the box starts out being a rigid structure and then becomes dynamic and relational. This can be interpreted in many different ways…. but I like the emphasis on the relational.
