Crossing Lines: Wednesday 1st. June: New Academic Building: Room 3.14: 6-8pm
Judith Jones will be showing work on a new project Loughton: From village to reality show idiom
She writes: “Loughton has become the epitome of the unreal reality show TOWIE (The only way is Essex).
Nail bars and clubs made famous by the show reside on the grounds of shops and ancient inns. Underneath it all middle England survives—remnants of life as it was fifty years ago remain. The large evergreen tree still retains the gigantic coloured Christmas bulbs which remain all year waiting to delight yet another generation of children at Christmas time. The post office where mothers chatted meeting their friends is now a Wetherspoons pub –‘The last Post’ – and serves much the same purpose. My work examines this eclectic centre of Loughton where the ancient Lopping Hall stands beside The Venus Clinic for cosmetic surgery-Botox and boob jobs.”
Michael Rodgers will be showing work-in-progress towards the forthcoming Elephant & Castle exhibition. This currently consists of a scattering of coloured recollections past, present, and future.
Astrid Baerndal will be showing altered images from the day around Elephant &Castle. Her inspiration has been the textures and colours on site in combination with the legacy of memories of socialistic Swedish architecture from the late 60s.
Matters relating to the Crossing Lines Elephant & Castle Exhibition at Linear House Gallery [18th. July to 31st. July] will get a brief time slot.
If you have any work-in-imagination or work-in-progress and would like a spot during the evening to air it then please mail me
