I've just returned from a short trip to London where I saw another great exhibition at Seventeen Gallery, this time by David Blandy. I've seen a few pieces by Blandy at the Baltic and Workplace Gallery in Gateshead before and really like his work. The concept behind this exhibition is very interesting and really worth visiting if you're in London.
More information about the show can be found here.

I was excited to discover that the venue was the same room where That Fucking Tank recorded "A Docment of the First Set." Sad nerd fact, but it made me smile.
I also picked up the Drum Eyes album Gira Gira, from Jumbo Records. It's the new project from DJ Scotchegg and the drummer from the Boredoms. Definitely worth a listen.

She has an album coming out soon on Second Language, and has contributed a track to there recent compilation Music and Migration, which also features Peter Broderick, Xela, Fieldhead and many more. The label puts a lot of effort into their packaging for the records and the results are really lush.
You can here some examples of her music on her Myspace and Blog

The label was run by members of That Fucking Tank and friends in Leeds, putting on gigs and releasing records with a DIY ethic.

His work continues to be an inspiration to me. I recently read his new book "For Sale: £20,000" which is about what he decides to do with a Richard Long photograph he bought. The story behind the book is really interesting but I would only recommend reading it after you have read"45". It is a much better book and more accessible. If you are only going to read one book by Drummond (or anyone else) I would go for "17." One of the most enjoyable reads I have ever had.

April 8, 1994 - Where Were You?
Although these are the first attempts, I am quite pleased with the results. They do remind me of Idris Khan's work a little too much though. More about him later.

Durham based artist Hannah Marsden’s new body of work explores a personal conflict between her introverted instincts and extroverted interests. For this exhibition Marsden explores the symbolic potential of the umbrella as a symbol of protection and distinction. Incorporating sculpture, performance and film, Marsden performs undercover research in and around Durham to explore the interconnectivity of humanity and the idea of a universal human nature.
Marsden is a graduate from Newcastle University and has exhibited work at Allenheads Contemporary Arts and Gallery Glue.
Date: Friday, 11 June 2010
Time: 18:00 – 20:00
Location: The DLI Museum and Durham Art Gallery

Also, his latest double album 21st Century Man / Achtung Mutha is getting heavy air play at home as well.
I highly recommend both.
