Photo Stroll through the Nine-Point Perspective show on the evening of the Private View



So here’s the evidence. The Private View goes ahead, with over 200 people visiting throughout the evening. Thanks to the lovely and talented photographer  Phillip Reed for taking these photos for us on the night, much appreciated and to all who came out despite the riots earlier in the week, it meant a lot.

Nine-Point Perspective show gets online reviews while we all recover and then the chariot appears

What a week of extremes! And I don’t say that lightly. After the riots, pushing to get the show up and trying to get back to some semblance of normality, the local Shri Kanagathurkkai Amman Hindu Temple hosted its annual Chariot Festival. Reports put the no of attendees at somewhere between 5-10,000 people from all over London, which is quite a wide estimate.

But then, some lovely comments/review about the show have been posted online. I leave you with a few:

See over for a peek at the Chariot Festival as I encountered it when I stepped outside to find a line of men wearing lungis rolling along the middle of the street holding coconuts. When I said it’s been a week of extremes, I meant it – humanity sure is a funny species.. All photos © Miranda Gavin.

Photo News – Nine-Point Perspective group photo show install at Hotshoe Gallery as London riots hit

WHITE SPACES

Monday evening and we start to hang the first Tri-pod group show Nine-Point Perspective: Ways of Seeing ahead of the Private View on Thursday 11 August from 6-9pm. Wood panels to be cut to precise size for snug window fit; walls to be painted; false walls built and shelves added.
Next, we head home and get caught in the rioting in Brixton and Ealing. Long night with helicopters and police sirens, huge plasma TV in box is thrown, and lands, in the front garden and loot stashed near neighbour’s bins, cars driving by picking up groups from the street, while smash and grabs take place up the road.

The next day the aftermath – local resident a 60-year-old is ‘critical’ after clashing with rioters reports local paper and news that the local Panasonic shop lost £200,000 of electrical goods, which could account for the TV.

Today, Tuesday and we head back to the gallery…
Then the shops in Hatton Garden near Farringdon are boarded up and we are advised to leave the gallery. But not before we get some more done in preparation for the show and the wall gets a lick of grey paint.

Let’s see how it all pans out. The Private View is on Thursday so we need to take stock tomorrow. People are asking about whether we are going ahead, and so far we still are, despite some set backs.


Seba Kurtis‘s book signing for Drowned in Hackney was cancelled last night, and Toby Smith‘s talk at The Frontline Club, see last post, was cancelled tonight.
Back home and word at our local Tesco is not good, security guard advises a group went in and one of them said, “We’re coming back to finish what  started”.
