Update 2018;  blog post reconstituted in WordPress after forced incompatability resulting from cyber vandal Luca Ascani’s closure of London Dada’s former host, in 2014, resulting in the wrecking of an entire online community built up over 10 years.
His slogan? “ Blog Forever “.  Rich.

Work 175; Human Glaciation

Adulteration  1; Human Glaciation

Moore Outside – Two Piece Reclining Figure No.5, Kenwood House

Two Piece Reclining Figure No.5 1963–4
Kenwood House
Hampstead Lane
London NW3 7RJ

The Two Piece Reclining Figure was something of a breakthrough. In the later half of the Fifties Moore had created a series of seated women. When he made his first two piece reclining figure however, without even sketching it beforehand, he was amazed by the unexpected views it offered. The front view doesn’t enable one to foresee the back view. As you move round it, the two parts overlap or they open up and there’s space between. It feels like a journey.

NEW DADA Work 174

Greater London Glass
c. M. St.Mark 2006
Based on Duchamp’s 1920s Great Glass series, where the Dada artist left a pane of glass on a high rise apartment ledge in Berlin for several weeks, to collect the city’s airborne particles; in this instance we are looking up from an underground facility in Hampstead, to see over 100 years of London residues ingrained into a Victorian dual-coloured leaded lights grating, inset into the pavement above.

Work 173; Beasted II & III

Beasted II
c. Michael St.Mark 2006
What a lovely piece of vehicularly-altered found street sculpture – if one of Serota’s young darlings installed it in the Tate Mod they’d even call it art . . .( don’t give him ideas, he’ll be extremely dangerous – Ed.).


Updated;  Beasted v. III ( 2018 )
Double telecoms junction boxes post vehicular collision – possibly during – or by the looks of, the end of – a HS car chase.
