Coco Fusco at the Cecilia Brunson Project, Bermondsey


A video, And the Sea will Talk to You, for which participants / observers are encouraged to sit in the inflated inner tubes that serve as floatation devices for those trying to make the treacherous crossing from Cuba to America, "illegally", to start a new life. A shame photos can't convey smell because the odour of rubber in the room really made the experience something immersive (sic). Runs until October 23rd. Details here. An interesting exhibition made all the more relevant by the news relating to those drowning in the Mediterranean in their desperate attempts to leave Syria and Africa.

Welcome to Mrs Lemon's: Sic transit gloria mundi.

Something of an online zibaldone, albeit not on Tumblr where one might otherwise expect to find such things, "Mrs Lemon's Visit to Japan" takes its name from a poster seen in Cornwall advertising a talk at the local Women's Institute. I hope there is something here you like.

NB If you go back in time far enough on here some of the photos start to disappear - not sure why. Whatever is happening with the missing pictures, apologies.
