Point of Decay



I’m proud to be one of 17 Artists who’ve been invited to make work for the opening ceremony of this years Coastal Currents Arts Festival here in St Leonard’s & Hastings. I can’t reveal what it’s going to entail but POINT OF DECAY will transform one of my favourite structures in town – Sidney Little’s 1/2 mile long 1930’s underground promenade, Bottle Alley.       More info will be revealed through ZEROH. Opening Night Friday 28 August 7 – 9pm.

More collages behind the film Bettine Le Beau – A Lucky Girl. After the war Bettine moved to London and as a young woman developed a career as an actress & model in the 60’s & 70’s. When Griff and I spent the day with Bettine she talked us through her scrapbooks & photo albums from this part of her life. In a surreal contrast to her early life she worked extensively across TV, Radio, Film & Advertising for many years. She appeared in The Prisoner, Morcambe & Wise, she was a Benny Hill’s Angel & appeared in James Bond – Dr No. These collages weren’t used in the film which concentrated on ‘Bettine’s war as it were, but they did form part of the 35 prints given to her as a ‘part one’ of the ‘Memory Makers’ project highlighting her amazing strength and resilience in overcoming the adversity & hardship of 5 years a hidden child in World War II. You can read more about this latter part of Bettine’s life herehere.
