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

Treatment rooms in action

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on December 15, 2009 by mutate

Treatment rooms have been hard at work… come and join us for the unveiling of this amazing community mural this Wednesday 16th Dec at 7PM. The piece covers the history of the area, the events and most of all the the people.

The Revolution Will Be Ceramicised…..at least under the Westway!! This Wednesday, 16th Dec at 7pm.

Carrie Reichardt aka The Baroness and Miquita Oliver will unveil the UK’s most radical ceramic mural at Mutate Britain’s ‘One Foot Under the Grove’ exhibition. Artists from The Treatment Rooms Collective along side volunteers from the local community have spent the last few weeks making a huge new mural in a previously unused space under the Westway, next to Portobello market.

You are invited to come along and help us celebrate this important new addition of public art to one of London’s most culturally significant neighbourhoods. This mural is made in loving memory of two of our fallen comrades, Evie Doggart and Ed Maiden. We are hoping that members of their families will be present as we unveil plaques for them. We will also have a flash mob punk choir present to sing at the event. Please come along, support our work and see cutting edge craftivism in action.

With thanks Carrie Reichardt aka The Baroness Co-Founder of the Treatment Rooms – The UK’s only ceramic house of resistance. www.carriereichardt.co.uk
