Bruce Lacey at Camden Arts Centre
The exhibition is only on until September the 16th and it's free to get in.
I loved the pillarbox dress with a self-coloured red embroidered crown on it! People of all shapes and sizes are made out of rubbish, and there are dressing up clothes galore, and stories about researching and inventing rituals; sometimes the robots are sinister, sometimes funny, and sometimes sad. Bruce Lacey worked with Spike Milligan, Ivor Cutler and myriad other sane madmen.
On the way back I did something else I'd been meaning to do for ages: this is a photograph of the Olympic Garden in High Barnet Tube Station car park. It's a trifle overgrown now but still beautiful, especially in its glorious green-fingered conception.
There is something pure and invigorating in an Art Day that blows life's bullies away into insignificance.
