Turbo Grifters and Super Colluders. Muon and Lepton on the Polegate Tree. July 2017


Time dilation is a difference of elapsed time between two events as measured by observers either moving relative to each other or differently situated from a gravitational mass or masses and features in the theory of relativity. Time dilation would make it possible for people to space time travel in a fast-moving vehicle   into the future while aging very little. Muons and Leptons are subatomic particles in this process, I like the sound of these words. Please repeat them. (They allow us to assume our roles as Turbo Grifters, and Super Colluders. Two personalities characteristics I have been alluded to in 2017.)
Man and Lepton are represented by two main surfboard pieces in the centre of the piece, they hang from the Tree which symbolises Imagination, Intuition and the cycle of Gravity. Death above, rebirth below, again, the Tree being the symbol of historic strength and courage. The trunk of the tree is painted white in the ancient British tradition enabling bark protection. The Polegate Tree itself is a portal and linked with a mystical plane tree in London that William Wordsworth in 1797 wrote a poem about in  “Reverie of Poor Susan”…” At the Corner of Wood Street, when daylight hangs a thrush that sings loud, it has sung for three years Poor Susan has passed this post, and has heard in the silence of the morning the song of the bird.”. I have been that Susan, and I twin it with it’s brother Tree in Polegate, in an act of relativity, and gravity , 220 years apart.

Solo Show Stour Space Hackney Wick @2014

“ You Drive I’ll Detonate”

Stour Space You drive .jpg

I was invited by Stour Space in Hackney Wick to present a Solo Exhibition over two floors and 2, 500 square metres. I made an installation called “ You Drive I’ll Detonate”. Based on a pyschogeographic journey I made Hackney Wick, it began with two rare photographs randomly bequeathed to me in NYC of Andy Warhol’s superstars and and a Buckminster Fuller invitation from Nasa. These artefacts formed the basis of films, self portraits of Susan Supercharged, pyschogeographic paintings, a large Billboard, and a cartographic set of maps, called “ Lifecodes” which may also be played a musical score.

“Major to Minor” was an installation I created for the exhibition THE CRASH. It was made from a car windscreen, ( paintings and drawings on back) painted leather, car parts, a drum , fishing lures, my Majorette Helmet and my Motorcycle helmet. It’s a commentary on how quickly we can go from major to minor and is informed by the Cole Porter song, Ev'ry Time We Say Goodbye.
