Talking City

I’m being interviewed via email by Anna Francis as part of her guest editorship of the Longhouse website. Check it out here. The Q and A session is updated each time I answer, so check back regularly to see how I get on.
Anna’s project is an Ezine titled Talking City: ‘a space for artists to enter into dialogues with the places they live and work, creating space for discussion around practice and life in the city.’ There are lots of ways to get involved: take a look.

Uninvited Guest

YouTube video which allegedly shows a woman living in the crawl-space of a New York apartment. I don’t know if this is real or not - lots of YouTubers are screaming fake. It’s pretty creepy though.

Secret Tate Tour

Yesterday we went on a little tour of Tate Modern’s old oil tanks. These are the three tanks that were once used to store oil when it was a power station. They are huge. All the metal from the tanks has been removed but the huge concrete structure that housed them remains.

During Tate Modern’s second phase of development (see here) they are going to be turned into exhibition spaces - and very good spaces they are too. There are currently a series of John Baldessari films being shown in them but I wasn’t allowed to photograph them.

Afterwards we went to look at the Miroslaw Balka piece ‘How It Is’ in the turbine hall - It’s huge and monstrous and very good - like walking into the gates of hell, or some kind of inter-dimensional portal.
