This week I managed to upload a really good video shot by Christine Dixon during my gig at Colchester Art Centre on 24th October 2018. https://youtu.be/pHG5KAY3nYQ
If I were you I’d ignore the first 40 seconds as it starts slowly. The show goes in three main sections; from 40 seconds to 7 min 30 secs I’m reminiscing about two old loves, from 7m35sec to 12m20secs I move to Iggy Pop’s Shades thinking about Camellia, from 12m 30secs to 19m 24secs Apulhed comes in and from 19m 25secs to th’end I remember my old dadwith the help of Anohni and Annie Lennox.
An announcement on World Book Day (not for children tho’!)
YES ‘THE SHREWD IDIOT’ (deluxe limited edition of 10) IS NOW READY FOR PURCHASE!
As part of the ‘PK College Days Trilogy’*
BUT BE QUICK COS THERE’S ONLY 8 LEFT!
Pete Kennedy will be doing a fifteen minute Live Art Piece (LAP) of his
‘Apulhed & The Three Graces’^
to introduce the book’s content at Bristol’s Arnolfini gallery in the Dark Studio
at 5pm on April 1st 2017.
And that’s no joke.
As they used to say way back when, “Be there or be square”.
PK will ‘perform’ his books’ content with the help of a series of masks, costume changes, specially edited music, mime (?), dance (??) and poetry (???). Please bring your cameras and flash away then, if possible, send PK some of your images for his blArty blog! “I hate it when you go to a gig and they’ve banned the use of photography. Some of the best work in my books was camera assisted.”
*The ‘P.K. – COLLEGE DAYS TRILOGY’ is comprised of two circa A3 books;
‘The Shrewd Idiot’[Out Now- the story of Northern Lad recounting how Three Graces and his ‘creation’ Appleheadman helped him to rise out of the morass (short for His Moron’s Ass?), &
‘Pete Kennedy The First Five Years’[To be released soon- 37 artworks 69-73 printed on translucent paper to complement The Shrewd Idiot], both in a deluxe edition of ten.
& 3.‘Appleheadman Sees’ – which is circa A5, unlimited edition. Out Now
The three books can be bought separately or as a trilogy. Buy one or both of the deluxe editions and get a free copy of ‘Apul-One’.
^ ‘Three Graces’ are three women who partnered our Northern Lad at some time during 1969-73. Each of them came to him at crucial times in his life and each brought new and wonderful loving experiences.
