about

Artist, Doctoral Researcher and ‘Polymash’ Chris Dooks presents a talk and performance in response to the exhibition “Blueprint for a Bogey” at The Gallery of Modern Art, Glasgow (GoMA) on the 24 March 2011 : 6.00 – 7.30 pm.

The title of Dooks’ bizarre hour is:

“you-know-when-you-are-on-the-underground-and-you-see-blue-flashes-near-damp-rails-well-thats-the-angels-and-ghosts-taking-pictures-of-you-for-their-album”

Or in other words, why a forty year old man is devoting months of his to recomposing 1970s’ children’s records and re-collecting vintage Ladybirds.

Chris has been emailing various stages of the performance which has been a lovely insight into his work. When it was suggested that he did talk way back in the early stages of planning the Blueprint for a Bogey programme I thought he meant a straight talk. Instead this is much more interesting and has developed legs and arms and voices. The thought and the work that has gone into this event on Thursday is fantastic and I am really looking forward to it all.
