I am in the last days of closing up a gig with a community-based theatre and art-making company called Jumblies. Wacky, beautiful experience, as much for the stuf we did as the whole existential experience of trying to make a show happen without ever being sure who was actually showing up to perform.
The image above is of some sheer fabric with prints made by the kids who live in the community just north of Islington station. They were told to create a portrait of themselves as teapots. The fencing and the door just seemed to make for an interesting visual statement, one that seems topical to me, somehow, with these prints of people-as-objects floating before them.
