Here’s a great post from our brilliant Blinkers, Natalie and Tilly. Thanks girls!
Under the Westway this Christmas there was an unexpected treat for the shoppers in Portobello. This year Mutate Britain (One Foot in the Grove) migrated from Shoreditch to Ladbroke Grove and featured an eclectic and unexpected array of underground street art which ranged from huge, fire-breathing mechanical sculptures to tongue-in-cheek graffiti, prints, ceramics, furniture, installation, glass, murals, books and even pole-dancing robots! This was a fantastic show of all things beautiful but deadly.
This art event was created and collated by The Mutoid Waste Company and The Cordy House Family who were determined to take art out of the rarefied atmosphere of a formal gallery and into a far more relaxed space where it could appeal to a much broader cross section. Mix this with the urban backdrop and a Grove appropriate sound track and you have an event that was more like a festival atmosphere than a traditional art space. Brilliant.
