So the day came!!

Friday night was spent editing 40 minutes of film from the collaboration project down to 8 mins whilst battling an allergic reaction to Chinese medicine prescribed for my Mongolian flu – amazing what you can overcome when the word exhibition comes into the frame! Usual story, a mad dash to organise works, in this case short film, choose images from LDTX which I had no time to P/S or tweak in any way so they were NAKED shots and look, I was happy with the outcome, considering my circumstances. Again, all my family know what a klutz I am with I.T. stuff but I managed to download an app that enabled me to show the images via a slide show – so with the projector it would look semi-professional – considering my well-being I was becoming quite blase as I felt so below par. Anyway, under the conditions both were displayed and feedback was favourable.  Guests flowed amongst the 2 big studios at Bei Gao and RGG had provided a fab BBQ outside which cooked up some delicious chinese goodies to keep the guests happy along with copious bottles of beer and wine – multicultural mix of guests hailing from Norway, Germany, Austria, UK, Australia and Beijing – several chinese curators interested to see what these foreigners produce – some very interesting conversations with them, very business like – well art is big business here in China.

These shots do not do justice to her work – they are huge and bold in colour and content

So there you have it!

The short film will be uploaded to Vimeo and my website on my return plus the out-takes will go to the US for Brenda Louie to make another film with and who knows where it will go from there?

Job done!
