Latest in London Dadaist Dingo’s Dada Kitchen Landscapes series.
The Royal Bank of Formica Top board – with Rachel Whiteread’s post-dated “glass/bottle marks on a surface” Olympic poster featured alongside.
( Watercolour on white Formica with foodstuffs and coins. Semi-permanent work. )
c. 2011 by Dingo
On moving the table top fridge to make room for the table top oven, besides the usual build-up of
stray foodstuffs and sauce stains, Dingo discovers some coins adhered by moisture to the
Formica surface over time. Some are removed by brushing, four stubbornly remain. Their circular
edges are tainted green by the copper within the coins. The surrounding surface is scoured
and cleaned and the area to be featured selectively ragged, to leave an intriguing abstract kitchen
landscape that has accumulated semi-randomly over the course of about one year.
Additionally uncovered is an old pizza takeaway menu leaflet set solid into the Formica laminate
by moisture. Some top layers of the paper were able to be scraped away after soap and water was
applied, to leave an interesting abstraction, that along with careful arrangement of the congealed
paper remnants; reveals a work of originality and tactile beauty that seems to house a beguiling array
of fanciful airborne creatures and objects.
