lottie had a show as part of the Camberwell arts festival. firstly let me say how in awe of her I am for having the guts to do this for a living. She really has to be so self driven..respec. Secondly I must congratulate her for getting through the past few weeks! I was up with her until 3am on friday calmly making a horses head for the show the next day. Hats off to you Lot you had it nailed this time. Anyway the show was a triumph. I was one of the first people to arrive at her installation...even though I knew the 2 people in that damp DARK room, I still found the experience extremely creepy!! It was, it really was ...but in a good way. It was the same kind of thrill you get from a ghost train, that kind of tense apprehension. I even missed out on a bit of the action because I had my eyes screwed up so tightly shut and I was sweating by the time I came back out. I really am so pleased that things like this are happening in our neighbourhood. Camberwell for centuries has been home to a colourful variety of inhabitants...lunatics, bohemians, drunks and not forgetting the Camberwell beauty. Im glad I live in this arty little corner of south London so steeped in history and character. Thank you to the people who make it interesting. Camberwell, Camberwell, Camberwell ...I love you.
