Clean Air Gallery @ Windrush Square / until Wednesday 29th March 2017

TIME AND PLACE:

From: 7am-8pm

@ Windrush Square, London, Brixton

www.air-ink.com
www.tigerbeer.com

Tiger Beer has launched the world’s first Clean Air Gallery in Brixton, featuring art made from air pollution. Each piece of art is made using Air-Ink, an innovative technology that turns air pollution into ink.

Tiger has been challenging convention since 1932 when they innovated and pioneered tropical lagering to create a refreshing and full-bodied brew to overcome the heat. Today, Tiger is supporting bold ideas and people who are bringing about change. As air pollution continues to plague cities globally, Tiger Beer is bringing artists from major cities around the UK and Anirudh Sharma together to produce purposeful creativity from the streets for the streets and to inspire everyone to uncage their inner tiger!

The gallery features art made from Air-Ink by artists from the top 5 polluted cities in the UK (London, Glasgow, Leeds, Southampton and Nottingham). Each artist has been presented with a blank canvas which will be used to represent something they find beautiful in their cities, created using Air-Ink. Artists who will be showing work at the gallery include Mr Doodle, Roderick Mills, Jonny Hannah, Josh Parkin and Goodwives and Warriors.

Next to The Clean Air Gallery there will be an area for passers-by to try out Air-Ink for themselves and add to a large piece of work started by Mr Doodle himself!

Created by War Horse, Blind Summit and Handspring puppeteer, Henry Maynard and his highly skilled team of expert puppeteers who have been working together in sweaty and physically compromising conditions since 2010, Boris and Sergey’s Astonishing Freakatorium is an improvised crossover cabaret featuring tabletop puppetry and character comedy for discerningly twisted adult audiences!

Following sell out runs at the Edinburgh and Adelaide Fringes and gathering three awards, 10 five star reviews (and counting), puppetry’s Balkan bad boys Boris & Sergey; simply the greatest vaudevillian double act ever conceived for the small stage, are back in London with freak show cabaret like no other.

Starring a variety of puppet characters, Boris & Sergey follow the tragic story of Pierre le Petit Tête Gustav and his wildly deranged tap dancing companion Juan Tamino. Audiences must hold on to their hats as they delve into a titillation filled world of the macabre. Boris & Sergey recreate traditional scenes of geeking, feats of incredible fortitude, endeavours of unimaginable physical endurance with formidable artistry, all whilst beguiling with their roughish wit and erudite jocularity.

A voyage of discovery of one of the all-time great symphonies, Beethoven’s era-defining Eroica. Forged as a powerful expression of the human and spiritual ideals he held close to his heart, Beethoven’s 3rd Symphony tells the story of the hero and his journey towards fulfillment.

Enter the transformed world of a heroically inspired Oval Space where you’ll greeted by the friendly team. Unwind from the stresses of your week; catch up with friends, enjoy a drink from the bar (including a delicious Eroica-inspired cocktail) and a bite to eat on the terrace; explore the space before getting comfortable for the concert, with drink in hand.

In an intimate and beautiful setting, on a comfy sofa if you feel like treating yourself and a friend, this is a wonderful opportunity to get close to the full sound of Beethoven’s orchestra and experience the struggle, anguish, and triumph of his epic portrayal of heroism through music. Nicholas, the conductor, will set the scene with his friendly introductions, sharing some of the stories and ideas behind the music.

After the final resounding chord of the symphony has died away, the bar reopens and the evening becomes social – a little party you are warmly invited to… To help set the mood, there will be some suitably cool live jazz, which we will be announcing nearer the time. Enjoy the atmosphere, relax with friends and meet the young, talented musicians who play in the orchestra, as well as Nicholas and the team.

7pm – Arrive and explore

Drawing live in fetish clubs, punk squats and on the performance scene of 1970-90s London, Berlin and New York, Jo Brocklehurst’s artwork is a unique record of subculture.

Her figurative paintings from fetish clubs document experiments with sex, androgyny and couture that later inspired the mainstream fashion collections of Jean Paul Gaultier, while her best-known portraits from the 1980s offer a raw, beautiful and female perspective on punk.

Co-curated by her model and muse Isabelle Bricknall, the exhibition also features her drawings of Berlin’s 1990s performing arts scene for the Berliner Zeitung newspaper, alongside clubland-inspired interpretations of Alice Through the Looking Glass.
