Mad style alert! Sweatshoppe Video Graffiti on Cordy House

This week, as well as Chu’s 3D Graffiti we also welcome SWEATSHOPPE’s Video Graffiti to Cordy House. Bruno Levy and Blake Shaw tell us that they create works at the intersection of art, music and technology by developing software which allows them construct totally unique interactive performances that re-construct environments. So if you like seeing new ideas in action (if you don’t, please stop reading now) then keep an eye out for further details about when to catch this happening at Cordy House. Or have a look about 8 tonight when we’ll be road testing the technology:

The venerable dudes from NY in US and A are into all kinds of emerging new techniques and are clearly big fans of new. Whether it be as a dance driven electronic music performance that emphasizes sound reactive 3D video, building immersive installations, or the fabrication of guerrilla technologies to augment public space, the duo strive towards an element of popular accessibility that is so often ignored in the technocentric world of experimental media.

What with this and Chu’s piece opening soon we’re feeling fine about fluffing our feathers at the forefront of art innovation. Mutate or Die!

Brand new work at Cordy House from Chu, Dotmasters, T.wat, David Walker, Mr. E Dawe, Wreckage and more…

Woop woop, we are in full swing at the moment and Cordy House is getting bombed by selected friends. In a shocking buff Wreckage cained the last Obey piece we had clinging to the outside of the building! Go Wreckage, it’s time for new, so out with old – there’s a new work by the master Mutoid going up there this week to compliment Mr. E Door’s open hearted effort that’s opposite – pics of those on way but here are the new works from Dotmasters and T.wat: Great new pieces from T.wat – there’s more pics to come and Chu’s INCREDIBLE kitchen sink scientific Graffiti Cubed walk in experience is opening next Thursday so get on the hype!

Stephen Fry Auctions Mutate’s David Walker Print Raising £2000 for Shelter Charity!

We donated a David Walker print to Shelter’s charity auction and were ELATED that it was sold by national hero Stephen Fry for an incredible £2000. Hooray! This is the kind of Art sale it’s OK to enjoy. Love it.

All the proceeds went to the charity which provides hot meals and a warm bed to homeless people. It is London’s ONLY free homeless shelter which is open all year round and receives no help from government. It is not affiliated with any other organisation, is run entirely by volunteers from the local Islington community and is funded by donations alone.

Our thanks go to the astute gentlemen who made the discerning purchase, beneath is a pic of David’s original Mutate artwork on show at Glastonbury:

Shelter are truly dedicated and make a real difference to Londoner’s lives, in this video Pete Postlethwaite opens the Shelter from the Storm:

The event was a whopping great success and, in a Mutate Britain first, here are some Heat rag style sleb snapps from the evening. A huge well done to Laurent and all involved and thanks to Stefan Klenke for the pics.

See the Vanishing Point exhibition

You might have noticed that we are very into twisting perspective at the moment, so as well as Chu’s Graffiti Cubed installation our friend Reuben Powell has collaborated with Ivan Black and put together an exhibition called Vanishing Point which presents new dimensions in time and space, all focusing on a point where our awareness of perspective disappears from view.

Here are the details for the Vanishing Point exhibition

“The exhibition takes place in Reuben Powell’s temporarily reclaimed 13000sq ft warehouse. Within this quintessentially decaying English space are the brash Americana of a 1970s silver bullet Airstream caravan and a Coffee Bar constructed from a motorcycle and sidecar. The space celebrates the strength of individual ideas counterposed against and within the converging maelstrom of powerful external economic and material forces.”

Exhibition Opening Times
16th October -14th November 2010 Wednesday – Sunday, 11am – 6pm (except Sunday 24th, 31st Oct, 7th Nov) The paintings are big, this one is 2 meters tall:

IN RESIDENCE… STEPHEN POWERS AKA ESPO

Stephen Powers aka ESPO is in London. The crew have been cold chilling at Cordy Heights in prep for an upcoming show and its a true pleasure to host and hang out with such talent! If you don’t know his work, read on to find out more – with humour and hand styles for miles and miles, his fresh approach and dedication to graffiti ensures he is still regarded as one of the finest and his work since crossing over to public murals and community commissions alongside exhibiting work in major galleries has maintained the grade! In the words of the man himself “Adore n Endure” here are some photos and sneak peek at some of the pieces for the exhibition.

In 1984 Steve Powers started climbing rooftops in his neighborhood and painting his alias ESPO as a dues paying member of the ICY graffiti club. 25 years later he returned home to Philadelphia in the summer of 2009 to write a love letter across the same rooftops facing the Market-Frankford line. The letter, meant for one, with meaning for all, encompasses 50 walls on a 20 block stretch of market street. Drawing input, inspiration, and work from the community Powers created a letter to and from west Philly. This unprecedented public art project was a collaboration of Powers, The Mural Arts Program, and the Pew Center for Arts and Heritage. It required 1200 cans of spray paint, 800 gallons of bucket paint, and the skilled hands of 20 of the finest spray painters in America, who Powers put into the legendary ICY club.

Opening soon! A World First! 3D Graffiti!

We have something special cooking. Chu and Liam ‘Gwarm’ Hayhow have made the world’s first hand painted 3D Graffiti installation. Health warning! It makes pregnant women sick. First, Wreckage rolled his Dinosaur around the corner… Then we built this Chu-cube. It’s a miracle. Shoes off, glasses on, STEP INSIDE THE THIRD DIMENSION! Version 1 is pictured – and it’s going Mutate into something even betterer if that’s even possiblerer… The experience will be open to the public soon – details to come in next few days. See you soon friends.
