Beyond Seven Mountains: The Reinvention of Ancient Myths and Fairy Tales in the British Countryside

Beyond Seven Mountains: The Reinvention of Ancient Myths and Fairy Tales in the British Countryside

"A long time ago, beyond seven mountains, beyond seven forests" there lay the English town of Corby. Just on the outskirts of the town one can find a little tranquil green haven made up from two little woods that used to be part of the ancient and bigger woods of Rockingham Forest, once the royal hunting grounds for King William I. From 1 August till 31 October, you can experience a magical moment whilst visiting the Fermynwoods Contemporary Art exhibition 'Beyond Seven Mountains' in these old Corby woodlands.

Exhibition: Michelangelo Antonioni – Il Maestro del Cinema Moderno

Last week I was briefly Dutch Girl in the Netherlands (not that an exciting name, I know). Before I jetted off back to the UK again, I made a stopover at EYE Film Museum in Amsterdam. I'm such a fan of this museum: the building itself looks like an alien spaceship freshly landed from an extrasolar [...]

Art Liberté: Berlin Wall Street Art Exhibition at Paris Gare de l’Est

Art Liberté: Berlin Wall Street Art Exhibition at Paris Gare de l’Est

When my husband recently went to France for work and had to change trains at Paris Gare de l'Est, he came across a big free street art exhibition just outside of the station called Art Liberté. Being the good husband he is, he documented it for his street art-obsessed wife on his phone while dragging a suitcase and guitar through the busy Parisian streets. Here are the photos he took with more background information on the artists and their work.

The Fashion World of Jean Paul Gaultier: From the Sidewalk to the Catwalk

Wedding Fashion This post goes out to all the ladies (and everyone else interested in fashion or a fun exhibition). There has been a few big fashion exhibitions on at various London museums over the summer and I recently spent an entire day admiring elegant, wild and precious fashion items from the last centuries. The day started [...]

Exhibition: Filmmaker and Photographer Chris Marker

Exhibition: Filmmaker and Photographer Chris Marker

Categorising Chris Marker (1921 - 2012) as a filmmaker and photographer doesn't do this multifaceted artist any justice. He was also a writer, editor, poet, cartoonist, activist and multimedia artist, but most of all a visionary. Perhaps you won't know his name or his works (like I didn't initially), but no doubt you are more than [...]

The Macabre Trinity of Wonderful Worlds: Švankmajer, the Chapman Brothers and the Brothers Quay

Over the last dark and ominous winter months, I’ve been extremely lucky to have been able to visit three equally dark, ominous, but also enchanting exhibitions. In November I went to Brighton to see the fantastic show The Inner Life of Objects celebrating the 50th anniversary of Jan Švankmajer’s film-making career. Then in December I [...]
