It’s been a little over a year since the launch of Kimbra’s album ‘The Golden Echo’ along with the group show that was the setting for her listening party.
Happily (for those of us who live in Newcastle and couldn’t make it over on the night) she recently emailed a video of behind the scenes footage from the event.
A collaborative show by Giles Walker and Candice Tripp set in subterranean London featuring sculpture, paintings and a kinetic installation. Presented by Black Rat Projects, November 2013
Filmed and edited by Miles Williams
Music by Laura McGarrigle
I somehow knew that this painting was going to be a bastard.
For whatever reason, it just didn’t want to happen. Even although it’s now safely tucked away at Black Rat, I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that a fraction of their ceiling fell in the same day an external drain flooded and unluckily tore through one single piece of art. This one.
I stumbled over it even before I even began, really. In fact the prints, which should have arrived at the gallery yesterday, may well have suffered some unlikely misfortune and could be getting soiled, sodden, burnt or most like “terribly bent” at this very second.
Anyway. Stumbling blocks aside, this is more or less how it came to be.
Song: Mother by Blonde Redhead.
Details of the edition to follow.
Thank you so much for being cool about Ideal Brown using your track for the trippy video! I really appreciate it. Super much, totally.
The show is finally open. I had my Tripp-Support-Network along with the London-Division come along, which was so cool because I never expected anyone to travel for it.
Ideal Brown and I thought it would be lovely to have all my friends and family in one room, but I really didn’t get to talk to many of them at all. Even Mother and Father Brown came up and I was touched to hear them bollock the boy for not sending them my preview. I mean to come along AND be interested is sweet.
I also finally met Paul and Stuey; mint. And long overdue, so I probably rambled uncontrollably.
I’ve uploaded some photos, but more should be on the way. I also want to get the video up online.
Cheers to everyone who popped along. I really appreciate all the support and was chuffed to bits, if a bit scared and shaken up.
Lyndall and I walked home so we could see the night rabbits outside the library. On the way I got called a “fokken kont” for ignoring a bellowing drunk. At least she got a feel for the toon.
I’m so tired and relieved.
Here’s the installation video that played on a loop, all credit and thanks to the wodnerfully wonderful Lyndall Spagnoletti and Greg Spencer:
