Spectacle at Supersonic

I was one of the six artists invited to respond to this year's theme of 'Spectacle.' Each of our response was exhibited at the market place by the cake you could gorge y'self silly while marveling over some spectacular imagery...

The term references the Roman practice of staging circuses, and the famous Roman elite philosophy of "Bread and Circuses."

The purpose of the spectacle was to maintain civil order during times of social and economic uncertainty.

It operates in two contexts simultaneously.

On one hand, it refers to high culture performances where audiences are drawn to an impressive visual accomplishment. This context coexists with its reference to low cultural shows operating in a 'folk' environment.

And this was my contribution... ^

Here are links to the other 'spectacular' artists...

Herman Inclusus at Supersonic

Fellow Electric Wizard fan and skater friend of mine, Stuart Kolakovic showcased his most recent body of work under the pseudonym of Herman Inclusus, "a plagve ridden scholar, chronicler and adept of an unheralded priesthood whoth sanctifies the Despondent. He has brough fourthe his collections of unholy relics and exhvmed icons to illuminate your pervertd souls." Nice!

some entombed artifacts

the shed in which artifacts are entombed (I actually forgot to take a picture of it myself, so this is when it was at the Nobrow gallery earlier this year)

Electric Wizard at Supersonic 2011

Had a reet good time at Supersonic, shredding the Ideal ramp, hanging out with Log and Stu, eating Japanese curry and letting my body get eaten up by the loudest, most disgusting music you could ever imagine. The Capsule ladies describe Electric Wizard them as 'perhaps the heaviest band in the world' with words like 'violent,' 'bleak,' 'ritualistic'... and that, they were. No need for illicit substance here as I recieved all the blissful poison I could possibly desire from this stoner metal sludery, penetrating through every offifice of mine, eating at my barely alive hypnotic corpse like state as dirty great guitar riffs swelled and pumped within my my veins. I'm surprised I didn't explode...

I cannot contain my excitement for SUPERSONIC right now!! ARGHHH!

Supersonic Festival 2011 is just around the corner and I'm invited! I honestly cannot contain myself right now. It's in just under a week and I have literally been jumping up and down in my room and growling to myself with sheer overwelmingness. Not only is it the raddest festival on the earth (so much so, that I haven't missed one since I started attending in 2006) I was asked to do some artwork for the exhibition. So unbelievably honored! Watch this space to see what I did, or better still, COME TO THE FESTIVAL! ELECTRIC WIZARD ARE PLAYING!

Bushy and Richmond park

Epic cycling this weekend, through the two named parks. Beautiful sunset as I rode to my aunts through Bushy park and a chilled out stag as I rode through Richmond park to Stockwell, chilled until I accidently made him stand up!
