Celebration! by Barbara Chandler at Pitfield London, 31-35 Pitfield
Street, N1 (off Old Street)
Opens 27th July 2012 and runs throughout August
Here is some publicity material from the Gallery.
"Celebration! – the word that says it all this summer, and the title of a
brand new exhibition of photographs by Barbara Chandler.
Celebration! is a collection of brand new work mostly taken this year and last,
out on the streets and in the parks and on the riverbanks of London, when
flags were flying, the bunting was out, and people waited patiently to see
processions, pageants and performers, and celebrated with picnics, music
and dance. Photographs also celebrate London’s carnivals, street musicians,
fashion moments, and entertainers, and the general capacity of Londoners to
have a not bad time in their own unique and sometimes a little eccentric way.
It’s an uplifting energising feel-not bad show that fittingly opens on the
same day as the Olympics.
On the wall will be 22 large prints – from a post-pageant rave-up in Battersea
Park to spectators at the Royal marriage. Also celebrated are the Notting
Hill Carnival, musicians on Portobello Road, the flags of competing nations
along Regent Street, and the positivity of the post-riot Peckham peace wall.
There is even an alternative “torch” – the fiery player of a tuba whose instrument
was emitting flames whilst entertaining crowds in Columbia Road flower
market at Christmas.
Photographs are also on products designed
in-house by Pitfield. They extend the range of the show and include bone china plates, silk cushions, a table lamp, two armchairs and six postcards in a pack.
You can enjoy a delicious meal or snack in Pitfield’s restaurant
before or after the show..
Celebration! opens at Pitfield on the 1st day of the Olympics, 27th
July, and runs the whole of August. The address is 31-35 Pitfield St London,
N1 6HB; 020 7490 6852."
