June & July 2022

Hello everyone, I hope you have enjoyed the sunshine and not got too hot?

I hope that you were able to find time to read my blog about my day trip to Cambridge on my website: https://michellebaharier.co.uk/a-day-out-in-cambridge/

 

Please find the details of my endeavours over the next few months, with some fun events you can join.

 

 

Events Below:

 

“Pavilion People”15 June - 2 July

Address: Woodfield Pavilion, Woodfield Recreation Ground, Tooting Bec Common, 16a Abbotswood Road, Streatham, London SW16 1ARFor Opening Hours, please visit the Woodfield website here.

From 15 June - 2 July, I will be exhibiting at Woodfield Recreation Ground as part of "Pavilion People." It will be an art exhibition by the Woodfield Pavilion's members as part of the fantastic Wandsworth Arts Fringe, a borough-wide festival over the whole of Wandsworth in June.

Join me for a free workshop at Turf Projects, Whitgift Centre - where I invite you to come and share what’s great about Croydon. If you have any old photos of Croydon from any time, particularly from the 1960s onwards or of the Whitgift Centre, please bring them along.

 
  • I am also exhibiting in the Crossley Gallery, Dean Clough soon.Dean Clough, Crossley Gallery, Dean Clough, Halifax HX3 5AX

    During the lockdown, I started working and attending the Arts Lab run and led by Alice Bradshaw. Since then, the artist group has collaborated to make work. I have worked with Mike Clements to explore and create collections of pieces that are to be revealed - inspiring. Some of it covers similar histories and will be shared as a harlequinade artists book – so look out for this show which opens July through to September.

Here is one of my pieces - it’s a poster of the Fool from the Tarot cards, which symbolizes a person just starting their journey on their way to meet people in the world, which I felt was apparent as we are all back out from the shadow of the pandemic that is on its way back.

 
  • To celebrate and show my findings during my current residency at House of Annetta in Spitalfields, I will be hosting an event in August:

    Thurs 11 Aug 6pm - 8pm Opening night with Poetry Reading & Performance

    Fri 12 Aug open room 12pm - 7pm

    Sat 13 Aug 6pm - Onwards: Poetry Readings

    House of Annetta

    25 Princelet Street, London, E1 6QH

    (4 min walk from the Old Spitalfields Market, Shoreditch High Street nearest Overground or Aldgate East and a short walk )

 

House of Annetta is a social centre, research platform, and resource for those committed to land rights and housing justice in the UK. The stark class and race inequalities in the UK are underpinned by who has access to wealth, land, and property. The privileges that divide us have only heightened since the COVID-19 pandemic. Working closely with Assemble, the House of Annetta is leading an ambitious fundraising strategy to fund the development of the House of Annetta.I'm excited to share that I am part of the 2022 summer residency program for artists to develop their practices here in the house. I am currently fact-finding and peeling away the layers in the house, as the walls have ears.As part of my art practice regarding belonging and loneliness, I use psychogeography by responding to the house and its atmosphere and listening to the walls - using the space to tell me… its hidden stories inside and out. Things about Annetta and I cross over - I smoked roll-ups and got brown fingers and teeth; I lived in squats due to homelessness. I stood as councilor once on one topic - housing.

Come see what I produce – the dates are above; please bring your own poem about the housing crisis.
