Mutate Britain



We made our way across to Cordy House on Curtain Road on Friday evening to catch first show in the new Behind the Shutters gallery that's just opened on the site.


And as first shows go, it's a belter. Mutate Britain is hosted by the Mutoid Waste Company - you might have caught their huge junkyard sculptures and performances at Glastonbury - and there are some incredible pieces MWC members Joe Rush and Giles Walker (including Rush's Home Guard, above).


It's a great exhibition - a bit like a fantastic degree show in a squat. Arranged over four floors, it's got a mix of sculpture, prints, installations, performances, and even a live screenprinting area run by Print Club. Check out Alistair's Flickr set for more exhibition goodness.




The gallery is open every Friday, Saturday and Sunday, from 1.30pm to 10pm, and it looks like the show will be running until Sunday 21 December.
