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

YOU GOT TO FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT TO BE ARTY……..

Out of the Shadow – Part 2

thesoundofthewestway_1976

‘When I think of the punk years, I always think of one particular spot, just at the point where the elevated Westway diverges from Harrow Road and pursues the line of the Hammersmith and City tube tracks to Westbourne Park Station. From the end of 1976, one of the stanchions holding up the Westway was emblazoned with large graffiti which said simply, ‘The Clash’. When first sprayed the graffiti laid a psychic boundary marker for the group – This was their manor, this was how they saw London.’ Jon Savage ‘Punk London’ Evening Standard 1991

‘All across the town, all across the night, everybody’s driving with full head lights, black or white turn it on face the new religion, everybody’s sitting round watching television, London’s burning with boredom now, London’s burning dial 999, Up and down the Westway, in and out the lights, what a great traffic system, it’s so bright, I can’t think of a better way to spend the night than speeding around underneath the yellow lights.’ The Clash ‘London’s Burning’ 1976
