Mutational doings

Posted in Art, Photography & Images with tags , , , , , , on January 29, 2010 by jack lomax

Oh hello there, how’s it going? I went to see one of the Mutation Stations the other day and found Matt mid-mute with a 14 cylinder helicopter engine. It’s one artistic piece of engineering that’s about to be reborn under the supervision of metal gynacologist Mr. Joseph Rush (Phd, Mtt-cup) – who I understand is also about to give birth to a robo Tiger,  unnatural history should be taught in schools! Watch this space for more…

Lrry Brings the Fire!

Posted in one foot in the grove, Video with tags , , , , on January 9, 2010 by jack lomax

Another massive thanks that’s been a long time coming must go to Lyle Rowell, the mastermind behind Lrry the fire burning bull that breaths flame and made an incredible spectacle at both the Behind the Shutters and One Foot in the Grove shows. Lrry and Lyle even make a brief cameo in our Mutate Chicken stop frame film. To get more details and step into the twisted genius world of Lyle’s creations have a look at www.doghead.tv. Here’s a video of the unique madness from our first show…

Filthy Luker makes the world go around…

Posted in Art, one foot in the grove with tags , , , , , , , , , on January 8, 2010 by jack lomax

Filthy Luker is one in a million becuse he makes inflateable street art. He’s installed his work at both Mutate Britian shows and both times he’s made the event better than it would have been without him – we love his unique style and silly but pertinent slant. Here’s a pic of his giant tentacles sprawling from the roof of Cordy House at our first ‘Behind the Shutters’ show…

…Luker has kept on evolving his style to address different aspects of city living, have a look and make your own mind up about what’s going on beyond the obvious, here’s Tentaclaus who you might have seen at One Foot in the Grove…

…also, he says that, “In an effort not to be pigeon holed as an over inflated artist, I went into pigeons.” These brilliant feathered sculptures are a series and are proper head turners, if you’re paying attention that is…

Thanks to Reuben Powell

Now One Foot is all but tidied up, we’d like to take a moment here at Mutate Britain to big up Reuben Powell, a very talented artist. He’s supported us in more than one way ever since the first show, paints Oil on Tin and has been through more than his fair share of trouble to make his work as distinctive and interesting as it is. We suggest you have a look at his website. Thanks to Reuben for the genius Sidecar Coffees and for seeing London from angles we never spotted…

Chu’s genius goes straight over your head…

Posted in Art, one foot in the grove with tags , , , , , , on December 17, 2009 by jack lomax

Right at the start of the show Chu came and painted an amazing piece of perspective painting that you have to look at through a mirror he also installed. Most people are missing it – not least because of Joe’s massive chopper (ahem).  You should have a look at the video and 360 degree images on Chu’s ‘site HERE.

Absolute attention to detail and innovation – what other artist you know investigates the inside of the structure they’re painting on?! Here’s an image of the finshed piece but get down to the last weekend of the show and see it for yourself… if you can find the magic mirror!

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
