Night of the Monsoon!

Another installation shot for your enjoyment (I highly recommend getting yourself a drill wielding assistant for all hangings. Let it be known that I was actually tall enough to do many of these pieces, but when you have a strapping man willing to do it for you, why the hell not, right? Thanks Kent! xxx)

Here are just a few images from the install, more shots from the show to come. Last night was quite wonderful, despite all circumstances pointing toward "Oh no we may have to cancel". It rained so hard that my boots will never be the same again and my car nearly floated away. I'd organised some friends to come early to photograph the show, so when we arrived with their schnoofty tripod and fancy camera etc the gallery had no power and were frantically sweeping flooded water out the door. Gah! 

So naturally we turned around and went to a bar instead. Thank god for being sensible! So though there was crazy flooding and sogginess (resulting in much snotty symptoms today), it was a lovely turn out and a great night.

The show is on until 16th October, so come on down if you're free. I'm sitting the gallery all day this Sunday if you're keen for a personalised tour, that's the day to do it! Until then, I need to get me a maxi box of Aloe Vera tissues and jumbo pack of butter menthols.

More (clearer) shots to come.

Alright everyone, after a day of installing with a tummy bug and the symptoms of a cold lurking, Sudden Flushes of Unconscious Material is up and ready for viewing! The show opens tomorrow night at 6pm, and promises to be a treat. There are some great artist's showing in the other spaces of the gallery, well worth checking out.

Despite feeling like I wanted to die, the hang was surprisingly quick, mainly due to my Assistant Extraordinaire, Kent. Or rather, I was his assistant, seeing as he dealt with everything that was too high for me (e.g, anything higher than 5ft. Sometimes being a midget can really suck.) wielding his drill and spirit level like a warrior.

A wee sneaky preview of some of the goods on display ...

And a bit of epic plumber's crack to get you through the day. Hope to see some of your lovely faces tomorrow night for a drink - hopefully my day of rest today has cleared me up and readied me for some good ole schmoozing. I'll be sure to post full installation shots in the next few days. Boo-ya!
