I’m Never Shopping Here Again opens this Saturday

and I just realised that I haven’t posted a single look-see of the new work. So, here it is is, along with some photos of set-up.

I have spent the last three days juggling the feeling between my toes and fingers. I’m not good at being cold whilst simultaneously maintaining a cheery demeanour but today Giles held my hand through programming some robots so for a while there I forgot to be sullen and anxious.

Tonight I had to face-time Ideal Brown who in turn enabled face-time with my cat. Tomorrow I’ll ask him to face-time my fridge, sofa spot and gym.

Coming Soon

I'm Never Shopping Here Again, Giles Walker + Candice Tripp show

So here you go; a photo to give you an idea of how Giles and I are trying to take our respective dimensions of choice and stitch them together before rebounding off on our own separate making-endeavours.

I’ve tried (like maybe 28 times) to write about the show and what we’re putting into it (clue: no head hair, although I’ve lost the great majority of mine trying to meet the deadline) but it all just sounds a bit shit (the writing. Not the art). Also, it makes for such bad reading “art and stuff and more!”

What I can say is that I’m not even near ready, but having seen a few of Giles’ pieces in progress, I’m excited to the point that my own personal panic-dread is an afterthought, like this free-floating emotion that has my stomach clenching without any of the conscious thought for the cause of my gut’s distress. Like white noise.

The point is, I’m not going to try to describe it. I’ll fuck it up.

Anyway, the important bits:

The Curiosity Museum Opening

Ideal Brown thought to take some photos of the opening night. They mostly reflect how goddamned busy it was. Mostly. For that reason I’ve not got many photos of the curiosities themselves, however I think if they were to be done any justice, it would be best to see them in person if at all possible.

It’s a staggering collection that I’m so pleased to be part of.

More exhibitions like this, please. In fact, I’d rather it just didn’t end.

If for no other reason, go and have a look at Giles Walker and Butch Anthony’s work. It will blow your pip. It did mine.

On until Christmas at

Summer Party at Black Rat Projects

“Black Rat Projects would like to invite you to our Summer Party. On Saturday July 16th during the day we are teaming up with Cargo club next door whose expert chefs will cook up a bbq for BRP’s guests. This is a day for all the family: Matt Small will be doing one of his legendary workshops for the younger audience (if there’s space grown-ups can join in too…). To book for your kids email becca@blackrat.com with an optional £10 donation to ZAMCOG charity.

The day will mark the release of Lucas Price’s new print “Telepathic Heights”. The new edition (each one is uniquely hand coloured) will be hung among works by BRP friends, new and old, including: Swoon, Matt Small, Giles Walker, Candice Tripp, ROA and Brian Dettmer and Best Ever.

The show will be a review of this year’s projects, and an ode to the artists who have made the space what it is, as well as a look forward to future projects as we welcome ROA, Candice Tripp and Brian Dettmer into the fold.

There will be beer, bbq food, live painting from Best Ever and much more!”
