Hello everyone!

I hope you will come along to Samia Gallery on Sunday, where I will be delivering my "Heart Piece" live art interaction at about 3pm. 

It's a lovely gallery in East London, the nearest stations are Aldgate East and Whitechapel. It's a fundraiser for Gaza:

Last month I was very pleased and excited to be part of Vanya Balogh and Danny Pockets' Big Deal Marvellous Mix-Ups:

Here's a link to a video about the show:

And here are some photos of the live art interaction "Cake Smash", that I did there:

"Cake Smash" explored notions of consumerism, commodity and value. The cake was made of plaster shapes cast from disposable food packaging and assembled in situ in the open back of a lovely retro delivery van. Put together with pva glue and decorated with dayglo paint, glitter, beads, buttons and gold leaf, the cake was smashed up and dished out while I sang songs of peace and love. Thanks to dancer Alice Labant for her help and to Danny Pockets and Vanya Balogh for curating the show.

​I hope you're having a super summer! With love and best wishes - Joanna
