#TBT UK artist #AlanKane’s lost and found pottery for the 2011 @whitechapelgallery #childrenscommission. In Kane’s ‘Home for Orphaned Dishes’ he presented a floor-to-ceiling display of the rustic glazed stone and slipware pottery from the 60s and 70s which became a fashionable alternative to the mass produced modernist design of the time. He then invited the public to contribute their own pieces of junk shop pottery to an installation which grew over the summer.

More from storage. 1995. Organized by Jeremy Deller, Alan Kane and Simon Periton (and others?) Questionnaire given out to everyone on a 'mystery tour', double-decker bus trip from London to Clacton-on-Sea. ('Constable can't you see my predicament.') Depending on how you answered it was determined if you were a 'mod' or a 'rocker' and you were given a souvenir t-shirt accordingly. The day ended with a 'treasure hunt' in Clacton. (I think I have this / am remembering this right!) This was a great day out/event. Patrick Brill made a great video of the proceedings. I ended up as a 'mod' but no longer have the t-shirt. @jeremydeller #simonperiton #alankane #mods #rockers #clactononsea @bobandrobertasmith

Remembering: 'Return Journey' (Jan-Nov 2014) “...Return Journey is an exhibition that functioned as a unique journey around the United Kingdom. It presented artworks, by artists from the UK, which all address, and refer to, the various places in which the artists were born or raised. While looking at the land through artists’ eyes, the exhibition reflected upon ideas of childhood, biography, place, time and artistic development as well as upon the production and the language of art itself." (#AdamCarr, MOSTYN Visual Arts Programme Curator) The catalogue is still available via shop@mostyn.org (£4 plus P+P) featuring an essay and texts on the artists by Carr, the exhibition's curator, and a foreword text by #AlfredoCramerotti Participating artists included #RichardBevan (Maesteg), #AliceChanner (Oxford), #JamesClarkson (Burton), #LucasClayton (Llandudno/Colwyn Bay), #MelanieCounsell(Pentyrch), #SeanEdwards (Cardiff), #TraceyEmin (Margate), #SimonFujiwara (St Ives), #RyanGander (Chester), #AndrewGrassie (Edinburgh), #DeanHughes (Salford), #AlanKane & #SimonPeriton (Faversham), #MarkLeckey(Ellesmere Port), #JonathanMonk (Leicester), #ScottMyles (Dundee), #LauraReeves (Exeter), #PaulSeawright(Belfast), #SueTompkins (Leighton Buzzard), #TrisVonnaMichell (Southend-on-Sea), #JessicaWarboys (Newport), #EmrysWilliams (Liverpool) #mostyn #orielmostyn #mostyngallery

'Folk Archive' by Jeremy Deller and Alan Kane.
159 pages dedicated to British folk culture in the broadest sense...not a really rare artist's book/ catalogue or anything, but just so so so good 👌🍻

when #jeremydeller and #alankane do this kind of thing we ask questions that wrong-foot production and dissemination. What happens when someone from outside of the art world goes at it from another perspective?

From the archives: 1995, 22 years ago. Printed information sheet and one 'chat up card' from Jeremy Deller, Alan Kane and Peter Stringfellow's mythical 'Butterfly Ball.' You really had to be there! Stringfellow occupied an unusually specific place in British culture/nightlife in the 1980s and 1990s. His eponymous nightclub in Covent Garden (which is still there) was a favorite of professional footballers, 'glamour' models and the tabloid press. Deller and Kane collaborated with Stringfellow on this one night only installation-performance that remains among the key moments of the 1990s London art world. Photographs exist! Deller's 'sharing performance' consisted of him ordering the world's biggest (and I think most expensive) cocktail from the bar and sharing it with everyone present. The complimentary 'chat up' lines that were available from the bar were to help people 'connect' or break the ice with strangers in the club! (e.g. "Could you buy me a drink?" - as drinks were famously expensive at Stringfellows!) @jeremydeller #alankane #stringfellows #butterflyball 🦋 #memorylane

A little sketch for the flash game I have found out called "Steppenwolf: The X-Creatures Project". Eventhough I have never finished every single chapters of the game, but I like the plot and the way it took me lots of time to finish it 😂 So here is one of the protagonist, also the playable character, Steppenwolf aka Alan Kane. #SteppenwolfTheXCreaturesProject #steppenwolf #AlanKane #flashgame #fanart #pencil #sketch #warnerbros #sakarban #oldmemories

Just reached 200 followers the other day. I would like to share some books that have taught me a lot. Everything from what to expect along the trails to staying safe in emergency/survival situations. Before you decide to go out and climb, please educate yourself. #scrambling #alpine #mountaineering #rockclimbing #iceclimbing #rockymountains #explorealberta #getoutside #11000ers #climbingbible @theboldandcold #alankane #billcorbett #brandonpullan Special thanks goes out to all the amazing people who brought together their knowledge and put it into these books. Without people like you I'm sure I wouldn't have made it up half the mountains that I have!
