When I visited the Leytonstone / Wanstead Quaker Meeting House in January to view the possibilities of the site, I noticed some of the imposing Victorian wall that encloses this little pocket of land+time had collapsed. The wall was put up around 1880, following the Enclosures Act of Epping Forest, which put a stop to the escalating land-grab and returned ownership to the Powers That Be.
I love the language and imagery of superstitious folklore, and the delicious slivers of fear invoked by a scratchy mark, a twisted root, a skulking crow.
I took a couple of cups home from the show … 2 drawn cups
These cups document rather a long journey & one in which I may have travelled too far… … Flying alien (love) cups
Someone asked me, at the opening of the show, what the title meant and it stumped me … Lucky Donuts
