The Ghost Tide

I will be selling hand printed La Pascualita confetti editions in the Ghost shop for the Ghost Tide exhibition. This hand printed confetti is perfect to throw at any wedding! La Pascualita is a famous corpse bride shop mannequin in Mexico. She is rumoured to be the shop owner's daughter preserved after she died from a black widow bite just before her wedding day in 1930

I am also very pleased to have been invited to do a Papel Picado workshop for the closing of the exhibition on Saturday the 3rd Nov from 2- 5pm. The workshop is suitable for all ages and there are other performances and walks to also take part in on this day.  Please take a look at the Ghost Tide invite image above for more info

OPENING PARTY Friday 19 October 6pm - 8.30pm
Gen Doy performance 7.30pm
The Ghost Tide - coinciding with the festivals of Hallowe'en, All Souls and the Day of the Dead - takes as its starting point the perspective that ghosts exist as an idea, or as part of a belief system, across cultures, across national borders and throughout recorded history. Most languages contain words to describe the ghost, spirit or immaterial part of a deceased person. Often, these words - like the type of ghost they describe - have traversed borders and been assimilated across cultures.

The exhibition, situated next to the Thames Barrier in South-East London, evokes ghosts as a migratory tide, washed up along the shore of the Thames their historical baggage in tow. It also explores the presence of artists in this part of London, as a migratory tide of creative flotsam and jetsam which ebbs and flows as the city gentrifies and develops.
Featured works include sculpture, installation, film, sound, performance and wall based works. The exhibition will include installations and outdoor interventions, as well as public events.
The Ghost Tide features works by over 30 UK and international artists.

Mind Your Head - Mass Sologamy

I have a small piece in the auction at Mind Your Head, my piece for the auction is called La Pascualita. It’s tiny hand printed confetti of the famous corpse bride shop mannequin in Mexico. Which is rumoured to be a bridal shop owner’s daughter preserved after she died from a black widow spider bite just before her wedding in 1930

Mind Your Head! is back in the basement at the Golden Anchor in on Saturday 7th July with Mass Sologamy! 
The Golden Anchor, 16 Evelina Road, Nunhead, London SE15 2DX 
£5 Entry on the Door (marriage vows guaranteed)
With your Hosts Caroline Gregory and Spruce Monkscyth (Calum F Kerr)

Live in your Head!
Marianne Hyatt (Bitchfork, Country Dirt) - Music

Mikey Georgeson (David Devant & His Spirit Wife, Mr Solo, Mikey Georgeson & The Civilised Scene) - Music

Fran Isherwood - Poetry

Melania the Stepback Wife (Birgitta Hosea) - Performance

Also Mass Sologamy (Self-Marriage) Ceremony with the Amnionic Priestess, Spruce Monkscyth and a very special appearance of our very own Morning Glory, goddess of the soundwaves. 

Also bid in the Something, Old, New, Borrowed and Blue Auction with artworks by Sarah Doyle, Julia Maddison, Joanna McCormick, Frog Morris, Liam Scully, Jaqueline Utley, Julie Pickard, Sarah Sparkes and many of the performers above! Auctioneer extraordinaire Spruce Monkscyth!

Mass Sologamy is for those who feel Self-Marriage just might be crazy enough to work. Marry yourself kits are available to support you. Self-Marriage is a commitment to valuing and prioritising yourself within a culture that has neglected it, lied to it, insulted it, left it behind even commercialised and dehumanised it. What does Sologamy mean to you? Do you have to love yourself to marry yourself? Can you legally get married to yourself? or if you are not quite ready for the full commitment…Can you legally marry your dog?
