August 2022 Michelle Baharier


Dear friends, supporters, and followers,

Thank you for keeping up to date with all my news and coming to the events such as the Woodfield Pavilion exhibition. I look forward to seeing you at my new events.


Upcoming Events


Conversations at the House of Annetta

I will be performing and showcasing my work from the residency at the ‘House of Annetta’ at 25 Princelet Street EC1 6QH (4 min walk from the Old Spitalfields Market, Shoreditch High Street nearest Overground Aldgate East).

  • Thursday 11 August 2022 – 6pm - 8pm: Opening night, fun and frolics. Bring food & drink to share at all events.

  • Friday 12 August - open 12pm - 7pm: Meet the Artist

  • Saturday 13 August – 6pm – 8pm. Bring poetry to read that celebrates activism.

I have been working on peeling back the layers of conversations hidden in the walls of this house. Annetta Pedretti, was a cybernetic linguist who sadly died in 2018, leaving her house to the Community.

For those for those of you that live in Yorkshire or are heading that way, take a stop at the Crossley Gallery at Dean Clough, Halifax, HX3 5AX to see the Art Lab:

  • Gallery opening times: Monday – Sunday 10am – 5pm, free entry, booking not required.

  • Closing discussion: Monday 12 September, 7pm, Fletcher’s Mill, Dean Clough with Ebony Andrews & Ian C Taylor.


Art Lab is a peer group for artists and art practitioners to discuss their work, concurrent ideas and critical thinking based in Halifax since January 2019. During Covid restrictions, we moved online like lots of others and expanded to an international membership.


This first Art Lab exhibition at Dean Clough marks a return back to the physical space and mirrors Art Lab’s event practice of randomly pairing two artists together to explore commonalities and collaborative methods. During 2022, each artist pair, who may never have met or worked together before, embarked on an experimental journey to create, select or co-produce work in whichever way they chose.

My Collaboration with Mike Clement

I collaborated with a man called Mike Clement and together we worked on three books and a harlequinade (known also as a metamorphosis, flap-book or turn-up book) based on commonality. We took a female member from our families and put a little bit of their lives into a book. We discussed our shared stories as we are both from working class backgrounds and we wanted to find a way to celebrate working class women in the last century as so little is mentioned about how tough their lives were.

We also decided to frame fresh interpretations of a tarot card each. Mike developed the Magician and I developed the Fool (image below).

The three other books that we produced are one about Mythical Animals, the second is Still Lives and the third Portraits.

All of our pieces are for sale.




Paxton Centre, Crystal Palace

If you can't make any of the above, then perhaps you can make it an exhibition I will be part of, at the Paxton Centre, 52 Anerley Hill, London SE19 2AE from 07 October 2022 – 31 October 2022. The opening event is on 7th October – more details to come…


I am also excited to announce that I am one of the short-listed artists for the Visual Artists Associations’ Professional Artists Award.



I have a number of other projects and exhibitions coming up - please stay posted.
