Me, Myself & I
SELF RELIANCE, MARKETING & CURATION
Wildwood & Weirdos
After seven weeks of head to the grindstone, I put on Wildwood & Weirdos Show at
Southwark Studio's gallery. I curated it myself organically as I went and it was on for one day and one night.
I resurrected Into The Woods at Night installation in an immersive environment via a giant fairground-style gaping mouth. Tall handmade blackout drapes were made on my little sewing machine whilst my husband held the excess fabric behind me like a gothic bridesmaid. With additional limp phalluses, this made my audience ooh and aah.
I did all the making, curating, installing and marketing. Fellow artist Jane Muir popped in for some moral support during installation and a bit of the old 'higher, lower'.
Although doing everything myself was a huge challenge, I was more than capable. In future I would buy more wine and twiglets!
