Artist Holly White launches her “spa eBook” with recipes for DIY products like soaps and shampoos as a PDF on Etsy on November 10.
The idea came as a result of the DIY spa and research lab White ran at Grove House “where people could come and relax and I gave them baths and we shared recipes”, developing into a short PDF instructional, teaching one how to have a DIY spa at home with cheap products derived from nature.
Examples: how to make basic bathroom products, like moisturiser, bath bombs, shampoos, and lip balms. The PDF gives starting recipes to be developed and adapted for your personal needs/budgets.
Shifting focus away from some standout festivals and fairs starting the year, the week beginning February 9 is a big one for one-off events and exhibitions. Kimmo Modig and Shana Moulton will be performing in Athens and Nottingham respectively, while Hannah Sawtell, Jenny Moore and PC Music‘s Finn Diesel are performing in London.
Aimee Heinemann is presenting a second solo exhibition, Instable, over one night at 7 Grove House in north-east London on Sunday November 30 from 6pm.
Recently contributing to coeval.gen.in.‘s EDENunlimited/tbc.tbc in Berlin, and following a first solo exhibition, COPE AGAINST COPE, at Life gallery’s original physical location on Consort Road in January, this show promises a sculptural installation and a reading from a found text.
Perhaps as an insight into what that found text might involve, the event announcement includes the fragment below that points to an ongoing ‘personal as biopolitical’ bent:
“it could be like, a flourishing, briefly there’ll never be endtimes bc ~time~ ends before the end
an age of damp mossy overgrown pronouns, before an ice age freezes what’s always been in the cracks and cracks them open. it’s tempting to think that the hole in a hole would be solid, like a block rather than a deepening or maybe even an o p e n i n g. when it’s right you’ll knownothing. limp-wristed mutant, armed gurl god, nothing left to do but consecrate }everything lol
‘is ferality even a word?’ idk i hope not
v v v religious naps/radical moisture/true metallic gore/moominland midwinter/a queer journal of heresy/identity kinda like a fractal glue the more it sticks to the more there is for it to stick to and the more it /has/
to stick to to support it’s own weight it’s fucked up but still, it’s nice to find each other//
