MERRY CHRISTMAS

WE’RE FINALLY LEGAL…

Monday, January 10th, 2011

Matt’s Kitchen now has full planning consent. Hurrah!!! Very excited about getting Morag’s beautiful signage above the door and turning lots of freshly-killed animals into mouth-watering terrines. Lock up your livestock…..

Saturday, January 8th, 2011

Meanwhile SuperGroup’s Somerset outpost has been setting up Matt’s Kitchen, a super-cool little waste-free restaurant that offers just one – perfectly formed – meal a day; feeds anything left over to family and friends, and closes early if the food runs out. Bosh.

MISSION NOT QUITE ACCOMPLISHED

Friday, April 23rd, 2010

Momentary euphoria about getting the team back on home ground somewhat dissipated. HUGE relief to have Morag back but still two to go and STILL no confirmation for Luke’s flight. Stopped feeling like the banker in Monopoly and started to feel as though I’m on a diplomatic mission to get nationals back on home soil. Or like a singularly inept travel agent.

SIMPLE PLEASURES

Monday, April 19th, 2010


Just checked 26 aluminium sheets containing
the intro text for each of the cases. All present
and correct, if slightly curled up in the top right
hand corner. Spent a therapeutic hour or so bending
26 corners back into shape. Strangely satisfying.
Didn’t think about volcanic ash at all.

PARTY PIECES

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Been at the London Development Agency checking
remaining exhibition contents. Canvasses for
deckchairs fabulous but look faintly self-conscious
against the super corporate backdrop of the LDA –
as though they’ve come straight into work after
clubbing all night and forgotten to bring a
change of clothes.

ASK THE BANKER

Sunday, April 18th, 2010

Flights still grounded. Developed mild obsession
with the scientific make-up of volcanic ash and
its predicted behaviour under specific weather
conditions. Biggest achievement yesterday was
transferring money for purchase of exhibition-
related items in China. Stopped feeling like an
exhibition curator and started to feel like the
banker in Monopoly. Vaguely useful, but not
in the game.

EXCESS BAGGAGE

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

Flights cancelled and can’t get another one until Monday.
Couriers all in chaos. Exhibition fine without me, but not
without my luggage (26 text panels, 2 entrance boards,
8 bespoke deckchairs, 2 large canvas newspapers,
2 animations on DVDs, 1 ceramic container for collecting
business cards, 2 reels of fishing wire and 7 lumps of coal).

LIFE IMITATING SIMPSONS IMITATING LIFE…

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Panicking now. Have an awful lot of this exhibition sitting
in my porch in Camden Town. Can’t quite countenance the
thought of this whole thing being thwarted by a giant cloud
of volcanic ash from Iceland. How can real life be so
EXACTLY like an episode of the Simpsons?

LOOKING INTO ALTERNATIVE MEANS OF TRANSPORT

Thursday, April 15th, 2010

Flight to Shanghai – and indeed flights to pretty much
anywhere — scuppered by vast volcanic ash cloud caused
by an Icelandic eruption. Hate it when that happens.
Am advised to find alternative means of transport.
If I can get to Moscow by train, there are two direct
trains a week from Moscow to Beijing.

MORE MOORLAND MUSINGS…

Wednesday, April 14th, 2010

OK, so, fishing wire. Easy to find in this neck of the
woods. Less easy to identify which type we need. Not
unreasonably fishing wire is classified by size and
weight of fish, as opposed to level of usefulness in
building an exhibition about London and its future
plans. Is an installation illustrating future
proposals for the River Thames equivalent in
weight to a fully-grown trout?

BACK ON THE NORTH YORKSHIRE MOORS…

Tuesday, April 13th, 2010

There’s something distinctly odd about knocking on
neighbours’ doors and asking to buy seven pieces of
coal – like first-footing in reverse.

(more…)

MEANWHILE BACK IN BLIGHTY….

Sunday, April 11th, 2010

So I’m in splendid isolation in the North Yorkshire Moors
proof-reading text, the catch being that half of it’s in
Mandarin. And no, I don’t speak a word.

Am beginning to get the hang of checking that the
Mandarin that’s made it’s way into the exhibition
matches the Mandarin translation sent to us by our
translators. The trick is to resign yourself that it’s
going to take a full day to check a couple of thousand
words. Maybe half a day if you’ve had a glass of wine.
You can do it in an evening if you’ve had two or more
glasses of wine, but you have to do it all again next day.

The surreal shopping list has been thrown back at me by
the Shanghai contingent so have also had to procure coal
and fishing wire, both of which, to be fair, are rather
easier to come by in the hunting, shooting and fishing
heartlands of North Yorkshire than in the midst
of Shanghai.
