A massive thank you to Tanya Peixoto, owner of the utterly charming Bookartbookshop in Pifield St, Hoxton (pictured above), for her donations to the Age UK Barnet Secret Postcard Sale.
Tanya is also Vice-Curatrice of the College de ‘Pataphysique and has very kindly rounded up some contributions to the sale from fellow artists in the London Institute of ‘Pataphysics. This article may, or may not, explain what Pataphysics is.
on second thoughts, maybe Wikipedia is better…
In the meantime, we would like to extend our thanks to Bettina Schroeder, an artist whose work is regularly exhibited throughout Europe and America,
and to Sally Child, the creator of Tea Trolley dancing, which you can watch here:
And finally, Magnus Irvin, whom I blogged about earlier in this series, is another member of the London Institute of ‘Pataphysics.
Tanya, Sally, Bettina and Magnus may be totally cool, but as winter draws in they are helping to spread the warmth with their generous help. And for older people that is vital; one older person dies needlessly from cold every 7 minutes every winter in the UK. In the London Borough of Barnet there will be an estimated 190 avoidable deaths due to cold this winter.
