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

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.
