THIRST FURSDAY @ CHELSEA COLLEGE OF ART

The first Thursday of the month is a traditional time for gallery show openings. While considering this date for our exhibition, our internationally-diverse group of artists began to discuss the symbolic representations across cultures for the days of the week. In the Asian culture, Thursdays are represented by the symbol of a tree. In Western culture, the tree is a symbol for knowledge. We all agreed that as art students, we are in pursuit of knowledge. Then the discussion got less intense, and we agreed to call this show Thirst Fursdays!

" FANFARE " it will be an absolute pleasure to document and dissect a very French festival in rural France one which I have been a lucky outsider to witness for over 15 years.... Pentecoste is the festival of the birth of the Church 49 days after Easter and commemorates the descent of the holy spirit in this small part of rural #France this #festival is celebrated by drinking shit loads of french wine, a combustion of #fanfare bands, the eating of foie gras and unfortunately the killing of #bulls in the arena( I am a Tauren btw ) . #Political, #religious and #ethical and brexit issues will be set aside in this exhibition instead the #celebration of #life #music and #dancing will be the main points of the show, cultural differences and the current #european issues will be set aside in a show of love is for all and #music is my first love.

(Side note note to this, I don't think I'm capable of making work which in some way is not provocative or does not raise issues however it will all be fun fun !!!)
