‘One foot in the grove’

Below is write up on the show from a visitor, it sums up a lot of what we are trying to achieve and put a massive cheeky grin on our faces!

“On saturday evening I went to see the new Mutate Britain show. Called ‘One Foot in the Grove’, its located in the Westway, near Ladbroke Grove in West London, under the bridge where London’s original Wall of Fame used to be.

The easiest way to describe it is an art show – but with the caveat that it’s probably the most mental, unique and appealing art show you’ve ever seen or been to. As the video above explains it’s an art show where you can actually ‘feel’ the art, and I think that’s a pretty accurate description. Regrouping works from the Mutoid Waste and Cordy House family collectives and their friends, it features paintings, graff pieces, ‘street art’, mutoid waste creations (aka the most mental, cyber-punk meets mad max art you’ve ever seen) as well as a fully fledged ‘art gallery’. Oh and a bar, food stalls, shops and shows from Mutoid Waste – generally involving their mechanic creations coming to life, fire, and associated crazyness.

The most remarkable thing for me, beyond the art itself and the way it was showcased, was without a doubt the mix of people there – from art types to graffers, hip hop heads to cyber-punks, squatters to tourists, locals to London residents, dogs to children, it was a truly open art show, one where you could argue that a lot of what makes art shows often ‘inaccessible’ to most people is thrown out of the window and a warm welcoming pair of arms extended to whoever fancies seeing some art, grabbing a drink and soaking in the atmosphere of a bunch of artists vibing together.

One of the guys I’m working with on the Original Cultures project, Will Barras, has done one of the walls as well as a friend of our Italian family Run. They both look dope as does the rest of the show. I can’t recommend it enough, it’s an experience before anything else, and also possibly the dopest art show I’ve ever been to. It’s inspired me for all these reasons and more.” Laurent on LO-LA.CO.UK

Remember remember Matt Small’s show this 5th November!

Posted in Uncategorized on November 2, 2009 by mutate

Straight after our Guy Fawkes mission to Parliament we’ll all be at Leonard Street gallery this Thursday for Matt Small’s Represent portrait show, come down and support The Single Homeless Project. Here’s a word from Matt on what you can expect to get at the exhibition which includes new work from Best Ever:

Best Ever 'Neith'

“Portraiture goes to the heart of how we relate to other people. When we look into someone’s eyes, we try to see what they really think, what we think we have in common and how we can understand them. Represent brings together a group of contemporary artists whose work deals with exactly these issues.”

GAVIN NOLAN / SWOON / GUY DENNING / MATT SMALL / YUKO NASU / ELBOWTOE / ROB SAMPLE / BEST EVER / ZACH WALSH / PETER MICHEAL / LABRONA / DAVID WALKER / DALE GRIMSHAW / JOHNATHAN DARBY / GEORGE M CLARK / CHRISTOPHER ROSS / CASE / LEON BILLING
