ORGAN THING OF THE DAY: What are DEATH RATTLE doing? ONE NIGHT STAND, fast food art questions in East London tonight

The BlowsTHING OF THE DAY? What day? Meant to put this DEATH RATTLE free download single up when it came out a couple of weeks ago, busy exclaiming, cultivating, it’s ip now, thems the blows, that;s how it flows, better late the never,  and that Fleetwood Mac cover they do is so is gloriously good, you can never have too many Fleetwood Mac covers creeping around making you do things you don’t want to do. making you see things you don’t want to see.. Fast food tonight then? A one night stand….

DEATH RATTLE have an new EP out next month  – “We’re very excited to announce the upcoming release of our new EP – Fortress out on 29 April 2013. The four track EP will be released digitally via Itunes and will also be able to download for free via our soundcloud page”.

Fast food tonight then? A one night stand….

This evening from 6:30 to 11pm, the Fakruddin Biryanm Grill on Whitechapel Roadm London E1 1EW.  will be briefly transformed into a curated art space with art works introduced into it. The reason behind this? Art collective One Night Stand are aiming to introduce “finger licking good” art into a popular everyday location in order to see how the art is interacted with by customers, or if it is also “tasted and taken away”.  For more information: www.1night-stand.com

“Over the last few years, Britain has experienced a growing interest in food due to the vast variety available; food has become more than a daily meal, it is a symbol of lifestyle and identity. Contemporary London life, in its unpredictable glory, has a new, growing fixture- The Fried Chicken Shop. How has this happened? The public, from different cultures, classes and backgrounds, have welcomed the space into their lives, indulging in fast, crispy and naughty meals.  In Britain, chicken used to be a luxury, now there are now over 2100 chicken shops in the UK in a fast-food market worth over £4 billion per year. The fried chicken shop has become the diamond to the heart of London’s foodscape and the deep fried cuisine appeals to city people from many walks of life”.

Here’s what the ONE NIGHT STAND people have to say…..

“The ‘One Night Stand’ collective is compiled of a duo of artists and a duo of curators. The aim of this collaborative project is to create exhibitions where the artists communicate through their site-specific work; combined with a diverse curatorial approach which employs unconventional exhibition spaces, (e.g. the first exhibition is to inhabit a corner shop). These interventions will be exhibiting for the duration of only one day and one night at a time.

In each exhibition selected artists will be invited to work alongside the One Night Stand collective: the choice of the guest will depend on the location where the exhibition will be hosted. This project was born initially as a desire of the four of us, as graduating artists and curators, to escape the sacrality of the white cube exhibition space and the confined space of the art market in London; we ought to try something else. This something marries artistic practice with natural ‘habitats’ to fulfil a coherency of themes and concepts within our work. The economic recession, and the numerous discourses that surround it, led us to reflect on the role of art in such harsh times for economy. It especially left us questioning if it was still the time for art to be confined to the white walls of galleries and institutions. The rise of the occupy movements was key for us to understand how, in times like these, new relationships are created between people and the urban landscape.

The strength of the art market during the recession, proved by the fact that it often outperformed the stock market, inspired us to play with the art object. The art work is intended as a commodity and the exhibition space as a consumable experience. Adaptation is the key concept that lies behind ‘One Night Stand’: the artist is invited to analyse the singular issues and experiences of the location of the show, and translate them in the vocabulary of art.”
