NOTE: THIS BLOG POST CONTAINS ADULT CONTENT AND MAYBE BAD LANGUAGE
I have had so much fresh air today so 4:40 PM I am nodding off, but today I have a mission to blog my culture wonders.
First as planned
Alien Sex Capsule at Artlink Hull
The exhibition by John Walter transformed Artlink into a colour loaded space with a content that has got everything up its sleeve to shock people.
Everything there is bursting with colour and clever illustrations looking at relationships between visual culture and HIV today. Every piece of art weather its illustration on massive cards, video, light installation or a song addresses the complex subject of contemporary sexual health.
I really loved it. Artlink always is chilled out space where I can actually enjoy art in my own privacy. There was one thing – the CRYSTAL DICK SONG that maybe have scared me for life – for the rest of the day I had it in my head. And off course the visuals accompanied with the song is something “out of this world” people. You have to see/hear it for yourself. The exhibition is on until 29th September.
I think this exhibition definitely raises awareness of sexual health and HIV, but I don’t think it has the power to change the world.
Artlink hosted these little cute “things” of art, but in the rush I didn’t pay attention of who is the author [you can educate me if you know in the comment below].
ON SATURDAY I WENT DOWN TO HULL TRINITY SQUARE FOR THIS – TAKE FLIGHT.
Little while ago a little fairy – one of the choreographers, was praising told me about this event, whilst it was still in making, so I have been waiting to see this since.
There are two good reasons of why I liked it – the performance was smooth and the young talent was shining together with the sun spells. The second reason – this event was beautifully “decorated” with over dozen volunteers. It is always pleasant to see them around every single volunteer is like a piece of an important Hull 2017 puzzle. They are brightening up any dull day.
The performance was all about the unique partnership between The Royal Ballet, Hull UK City of Culture 2017 and Hull dance schools.
