On Friday I will be performing my new work ‘Glaucous’ at Late at Tate St Ives. Sarah Johnson who works under the title ‘Cabbage Blue’ has made some wonderful costumes for the work and my reading will be accompanied by music using the harp and found sound played by Benjin pollock. The event starts at 6.30 and my Performance is at 20:10 🔵 photo by #daisyrickman @daisyrickman #glaucous#tatestives
Hand panel inspired by the Wilton Diptych. The blue is genuine Ultramarine, historically used by painters as the preserve of paradise. It comes from Lazurite, a mineral present in Lapis Lazuli. The finest grades of ultramarine are reported to come from blue veins running through mountains in present day Northeastern Afghanistan. In western medieval maps of the world, this area scraped the edge of Paradise. How•Things•Change - Photo by Daisy Rickman #glaucous#blue#tatestives#lateattate @cabbage_blue_ #benjin
I’m really excited to say I’ve been commissioned to create a new performance / reading for the next Tate Late at St Ives. The work is called Glaucous and is about contradictions implicit in the colour blue - extreme joy, extreme sadness, the colour of sea, the colour of sky, the colour of lapis lazuli (which has yellow not blue at its centre). It’s also about the slippery, problematic nature of using words to classify colour. The performance will include costumes made by Sarah Johnson @cabbage_blue_ and sound by Ben Pollock. And it will take place in the Patrick Heron exhibition on the 21st Sept. Photo by Daisy Rickman @daisyrickman @tatestives #tatestives#glaucous#tatelate
Bjork - Got over excited and forgot where my car was parked - which has led to deep mental questioning this morning. Eden project has acres of car park.... Thanks @markpiggery for moral support in tracking my Citroen saxo down, think I’d still be roaming the tarmac now!!!!!
