That's Weird Isn't It!

(2014)   Back

Several projects came together and were presented in an exhibition in my kitchen. The work in this show parodied everyday conventions, modes of expression and clichés.

Mounted photographs lined the corridor outside, and inside, the fridge was covered with fake childrens' drawings, there were Romley council posters on the noticeboard, and a projector showed a selection of videos. A curated playlist of old pop songs was playing, and guests were given WKDs to remind them of old school house parties. Towards the end of the evening, I gave a speech and performed two songs - 'Betsy' and 'What Is Love'. Guests went home with a party bag, which contained several pieces of printed matter, sweets and a piece of painted pasta. Everyone had a good time.

Glasses, identical in shape and size to mine, and were given to visitors

'A man turns the lights off...' cards, scattered around the room
