One of the little-known God Deitys of water and air is Porporpeius, who you may remember from his booming music career during the Blues revival of the 1960s. Heavy drug use and a failed suicide attempt during the late 1970s drove Porporpeius to confront his half-brother Neptune about his rights to the Kingdom of Atlantis. Unfortunately, Porporpeius fell off the wagon just before this confrontation and after causing a dreadful scene at Neptune's son's birthday party, Neptune decided to sever Porporpeius' head and hide his body in the darkest depths of the sea. For the past 40 years, the bodiless Porporpeius has been strung out on cheap liquor and cheaper drugs, searching every square inch of the Earth for his missing body but to no avail.
Porporpeius, by Ben Newman, realised by Felix Wentworth.

"I like menus, I like the gap between desire and text and interpretation. It's a social thing, coursing across the print, watching the maths, eyeing the props, taking pleasure in my ignorance, editing and re-editing. You plan a risk, you rehearse a conservative choice, you plunge in. It's only ingredients, processes and procedures but there is room to extemporise, to play clerk of works, to write a short play, to paint by numbers. Talking is the same, just quicker. I like using words to order and I like unfamiliar words. I have, for want of language, pointed at other people's dishes and, very occasionally, I have ordered by numbers." Richard Wentworth

James Dawe wows us with his large scale wall collages, in his peice called Quantum Entanglement: an entanglement of small objects and organisms, from man-mad and natural worlds, which have been shaken up in a vacuum-like machine and spewed out decadently down the Selfridges staircaes. You really need to see this close up!

Friday morning saw the start of the M.O.S.T. at Selfridges, and over the weekend we welcomed hundreds of individuals, couples and families who explored this maze of a museum, and discovered what lay within. Over the next few days we will upload some photographs of the installations, but you really need to visit to get the full experience.
Open until March 7th, opening hours as follows:
Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday/Friday/Saturday 09:30 - 20:00
Thursday 09:30 - 21:00
Sunday 11:30 - 18:00
