Doors:

www.hanguppictures.com/exhibition/oddly-head-repeat-after-me

Inaugural exhibition by London-based artist Oddly Head. Celebrating the brand new collection of bold, succinct and highly topical text-based limited edition screen prints and original mixed media works. 📸

With the June election, a reality TV star in the White House, and increasing political and military tension in more countries than we can remember, Oddly Head’s new body of work shrewdly comments on society’s fragile and daunting state.

Portraying how our compulsion to create an online second self has prevented our ability to make our own decisions with catastrophic results. In his latest series, Oddly Head, the alter ego of artist Tim Fishlock, neatly sums up our worst fears for leaders who abandon politics in favour of infantile populism and who are now at liberty to indulge their appetite for both distraction and destruction.

Highlighted in his new collection of repetitive ’ME’ pieces, the artist discusses our uneasy relationship with technology and how we are being subjugated by our own invention.

“We are trading privacy and intimacy, companionship and love for a public existence and a virtual thumbs up from people we’ve never met. Keenly aware that we’re being judged on our every pronouncement and every picture we post, we have become absurdly self-absorbed. And who spends more time thinking about themselves and their place in the world than the artist…?”

Light relief comes in the form of another new work titled 99 Problems. He has cunningly cast a dropped 99 ice cream in plaster and has been decorating the streets of London with this irreverent artwork.

Fully immersive beer festival unlike any other. Bringing together some of Brooklyn Brewery’s favourite community friends for two days of floor-rattling beats, food, tech, art, games, a pinch of astonishment and of course, beer – the interactive, multi-room experience is a celebration of the wide world of beer and all it touches.

Brooklyn Brewery has created a different kind of beer festival. The usual tropes are here – a ticket to gain entrance, a glass for one’s beer and many tasty hand-crafted beers; but there is no massive white tent, no fluorescent lighting and no vacuous convention centre. Serving some of the brewery’s favourite beers; each room at the Beer Mansion will fit within a unique flavour profile relating to the beer that they’ll be pouring, getting guests to think deeper about what they’ll be drinking and why it tastes like it does.

Crossing the threshold, with beer in hand – guests will choose their own journey through the five rooms of Beer Mansion. Whether they bask in the tropical haven of the Tart of the Tropics room complete with fruit-forward tropical beers, palm trees, and Hawaiian shirts, or are plunging into the gothic, roasty, and toasty Dark Room – everyone welcomed at the Beer Mansion can be sure to encounter plenty of oddity and perhaps even the elusive Brooklyn Brew Master Garrett Oliver, who’ll be flying over from New York especially for the occasion.

Not wanting to keep all the fun to themselves, Brooklyn Brewery has enlisted the help of local brewing friends as well as international sister breweries to serve up their finest beers, including:

40 ft Brewery
Redchurch Brewery
Forest Road Brewing Company
Thornbridge Brewery
Nya Carnegie
EC Dahls

Bringing some bite to the experience, neighbourhood food favourites will also be there – with Voodoo Ray’s serving up slices and quesadilla connoisseurs Killa Dilla adding some Mexican heat; whilst Andrew Clarke (founder of Glandstonbury and currently Chef Director at Brunswick House & the soon to launch Bastien) will be creating all kinds of surprising food and beer combinations.
