Josie Long / Ellie Harrison at Wunderbar
Dougie was down in sunny Newcastle this week, having a great time at the Wunderbar festival. The lovely Wunderbar people kept him organised with a bespoke welcome pack (thanks Beckie). We were there to film a unique Josie Long gig (her first in Newcastle) that took place in Ellie Harrison’s excellent Market Forces exhibition.
Ellie’s ‘A Brief History of Privatisation’ installation – which features electronic massage chairs (representing 6 ‘public’ services) linked to a neon display of dates from 1900 to the present day – was the point of departure for Josie’s gig.
All will be revealed in the final film, coming soon. Wunderbar is a very worthy excuse to get down to Newcastle, it is a fantastic festival.
