Her highness The Baroness Carrie von Reichardt and sculptor Nick Reynolds look like they’ve finally finished their session with the elephant Phoolan and all the Treatment Rooms crew – epic effort to make this incredible piece, it’s been a real labour of love for them. Justly rewarded by Phoolan’s positioning at The Natural History Museum. Brrrring on the elephant stampede!

Bill Nighy, Tom Felton and some other aspiring celebs came to Cordy House to see the work of Dr D, Wreckage, Teddy Baden, Peter Dunne, Carrie Reichardt, War Boutique, Dotmasters, David Walker and kennardphillipps. So I thought it would be a shame not to film it. Here are the results for your ocular pleasurement:

Mutate Britain and The Robin Hood Tax – celebrity election special!

Posted in Art, News with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on April 16, 2010 by jack lomax

Massive thanks to everyone who came yesterday to support our Robin Hood Tax campaign day. Hannah Cameron (no relation!), Nicky Wimble, Richard Curtis, Bill Nighy, Noel Clarke, Tom Felton and Joe Dempsie – great to have you all here and using your skills and profile to contribute to this excellent campaign. You can support it here

I’ve really enjoyed the chance to make some Street Art with real substance happen. The whole thing really was a ‘no brainer’ – not least because the contributing artists have been making work that relates to the bastard bankers’ social crimes for some time! Did you know that when the RHT campaign was launched Goldman Sachs attacked it? Pretty low. Check this Telegraph article and this Dr D subvertisment. My respect and thanks goes to Dr D, Pete Dunne, Wreckage, Teddy Baden, Her Imperial Majesty The Baroness Carrie von Reichardt, Dotmasters, War Boutique, kennardphillipps and David Walker.

I think the best Street Art criticises consumer culture, presents ideas for change and makes a city-wide game that is an alternative to the commercial visual drivel of the information age we are all immersed in… down with visual drivel, up with real substance!

All conquering respect and love to all the Mutationerizers who get it done, including but not limited to… Liam Hayhow, Garfield Hackett, Joe Rush, Wreckage, Sam Haggerty, Teddy Baden, and Hugo Toland!

Posted in Art, News with tags , , , , , , , on February 24, 2010 by jack lomax

…is definately getting there! Nearly ready for the Elephant stampede. The video explains Carrie and Nick’s plans… There are going to be two in the Mutate herd as Joe Rush has just signed the foster parent papers for a new born baby sculpture to keep Phoolan company on his mission to raise awareness for the plight of these mighty mammals!

Elephants Invade London!

Posted in Art with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on January 19, 2010 by jack lomax

Not real ones. These are a herd of 200 fibreglass elephants descending on the parks, streets and squares of London this Spring. Our friends Carrie Reichardt aka The Baroness and Mr Spunky are 2 of 200 specially chosen artists (including Marc Quinn, Jack Vettriano and Sacha Jafri as designers like Diane von Furstenberg, Tommy Hilfiger and Lulu Guinness) who will be bringing their own style to these elephantastic canvesses. Here’s Carrie’s Tiki truck picking up the naked individual in question…

Baroness Carrie and Senior el Spunkerino will be collaborating with the artist Nick Reynolds (son of Great Train robber Bruce Reynolds and harmonica player with the band Alabama 3) on one of the elephants. The unique sculptures will then be auctioned in the summer amdist what’s sure to be a meeeja clamour as Stephen Fry, Joanna Lumley and Michael Palin are all in on it. The funds raised go to Elephant conservation projects across Asia.

Carrie says “I really believe that ours will be a real show stopper piece, mutated and mosaiced to reveal the realities of what is happening to the Indian elephant.” There’s more at Carrie’s ‘site  www.carriereichardt.co.uk and you can contact Elephant Family, the official charity and organisers of the campaign at www.elephantfamily.org
