This is my summer newsletter in a new format. I’ll be listing upcoming exhibitions and events, talk about collaborations and a few other interesting bits and pieces.
The next show is already opening this Sunday. In the meantime I’m working hard to secure additional locations for the Art Language Location show in October. I’m also collaborating with two artists in Norway on developing Modern Day Rituals and continuing my essay on embracing uncertainty in art production. More about that in one of the next newsletters.

POOL – opening this Sunday at CGP London
8th-26 July 2015
POOL – A Bermondsey Artists’ Group Exhibition
at CGP London, 8-26 Jul 2015
One of my videos is going to be shown at the next exhibition by the Bermondsey Artists’ Group “Pool”, starting this weekend.
My video The End of Ebb and Flow is a digital fable about a double act of opposing characters, bound to each other by mutual dependency and disdain.
The exhibition “Pool” takes it starting point from the buried Southwark Park lido and decommissioned fountain, with artists showing work in direct and metaphorical relation to the theme.

Exhibition: 8 – 26 July 2015 | Wed-Sun 11-5pm
Preview: Sunday, 5 July 3 – 5pm
CGP London, Southwark Park, London SE16 2UA
Earlier this year I collaborated with artist Parvathi Nayar in Chennai, India and produced a sound track for her video installation Of Time and Space. The video is on show at the Veda Gallery in Chennai until September.

Coming up in October:
I’ll be showing a triptych of videos on storytelling, change and technology at this year’s Art Language Location exhibition and event across Cambridge. The videos will be shown together at a central location at Anglia Ruskin University. I’m also negotiating with different sites and venues to show the videos separately in different contexts relating to the videos’ content. About Art Language Location:
Now in its fourth year, ALL is an art festival that takes place during October at locations across the city. Art Language Location is organised by a group of Cambridge postgraduate artists to promote and celebrate contemporary and experimental art in Cambridge. This year Art Language Location will take place from 15th October – 1st November 2015.

Call to action for a friend:
A friend and fellow cycle activist and mental health campaigner Alex is battling OCD, bulimia and anorexia. I know her from her time as the Chair of Southwark Cyclists, when she’s led the group through a difficult period, pouring her heart and soul into making things better and safer for cyclists.
Since then her condition has deteriorated and she has exhausted treatment options in the UK. She has found an alternative treatment in South Africa, which specialises on treating the combination of OCD and eating disorders. Alex has never held back with her generosity for others, so her friends and family have started a crowdfunding campaign to raise the money for her to go and start the treatment. She is close to reaching her target, so I’m hoping some of you will be able to contribute.
