The Grayson Perry British Musuem Friday late with exhibitions, stalls, performances and workshops by various University of Arts colleges and courses. There was a slient disco by Ual arts radio, medal casting, live fashion walk with LCF students putting on a fashion runway with pieces designed by collections or objects in the British Museum. Slightly weird, gigantic lean models strutting around and posing but the crafty stalls were my thing.
Great evening out and free, always good for students, where I went to support fellow 3D students Rosie, Vivi and Henry. They all put alot of hardwork in to their chosen exhibit titled WELCOME TO THE AFTERLIFE.
As you arrived to the stall, you are given a chance coin, one bad and good side which determines what coffin you then lay into to take your journey into the afterlife.
I got the dark side, where my offering card and ticket is taken to the next stage where I write down my offering. (Think I drew some sort of cake?!)
You then put on your afterlife jacket and with your offering, lie down in the coffin. As I was going to the dark side, my coffin was blacked out and the helpers dont interact or talk to you, just point to it and cover you. Not knowing whats gunna happen, thought I would get noises or something you lie there for a couple of minutes til they lift the lid. Not knowing how long your gunna be there is great, gives you the creeps hearing all the voices around in the musuem and not being able to see!
A great opportunity and to give our course abit of a boost, Rosie Vivi and Henry did an amazing job. A really unique and stand out stall that got alot of attention during the course of the evening!
