Gaucho Sunset

Gaucho Sunset Check out this link for photos!! had a great day. looking forward to tomorrow, the grotters, blessing of the water and fireworks. I can't thank Sue, and Bob and Val enough for all their help. Alivia was also, as always,  amazing....quite an experience with some touching messages on the Oysters.

Inside/outside: materialising the social | Tate

Inside/outside: materialising the social | Tate Spent today at the Tate at the symposium in the Tanks. Claire Bishop was really clever and thoughtful. Loved the piece by Lin Chi -Wei "Tape Music", an 120 meter long tape with embroidered phonetic characters which was born out of a desire to play electronic music through human bodies ...a wonderful piece, exquisitely simple. Also Jelili Atiku's Gbangbayahu whose candid presentation of  his practice which uses performance and political action to try to remould society was really illuminating.

I am so looking forward to setting up Gaucho Sunset on Reeves beach on Thursday....I am in a good place!! Hope to see you there.
