Brixton Bowie memorial crowdfunding now

“Screaming along in South London”

Below is an edited excerpt from the press release for a truly impressive landmark of a memorial to David Bowie, which is crowdfunding for the next 28 days here.

    In a fifty year career David Bowie blazed a trail that brought joy to millions, changing lives and opening minds. Many of us would not be the people we are, were it not for Bowie.

    When David Bowie died, the world lost an irreplaceable talent. Brixton also lost a son. David Bowie, our Brixton boy.

    Now the Brixton community is building a permanent memorial in the place of his birth.

    The Artists, This Ain’t Rock’n’Roll – designers of the Brixton Pound paper currency that features David on the B£10 note – have reimagined the iconic lightning flash from Duffy’s Aladdin Sane LP cover in gravity-defying red and blue-sprayed stainless steel. This is a monumental piece of public art and a spectacular memorial to David Bowie.

    Just as an otherworldly David Bowie landed in our lives, the memorial (affectionately nicknamed the ZiggyZag), stands embedded in the Brixton pavement – a three storey tall bolt from above. A nine metre missive from another dimension, hurled from afar.

    Unexplained, yet utterly familiar; a poignant reminder that life does exist beyond the everyday. That music and art and curiosity are vital, positive contributors to our collective existence.

    Five streets away from Bowie’s Stansfield Road birthplace, and situated next to Jimmy C’s internationally famous Aladdin Sane mural – smack-bang-opposite Brixton tube – the memorial will be the first thing most visitors see when they come to Brixton.

    Standing across the road from the equally famous Electric Avenue, the memorial will be a defining part of this most iconic neighbourhood.

    Like the man himself, Brixton is an enigmatic flame attracting all manner of moths. Rooted in the grand traditions of music hall and theatre, both are emblematic of seismic post-war societal shifts. At once completely out-there and utterly down-to-earth.

    The memorial is crowdfunding now at http://smarturl.it/ZiggyZagCrowdfunder – there are great exclusive rewards to be had.

    This Ain’t Rock’n’Roll’s (http://smarturl.it/ThisAintRockNRoll) Charlie Waterhouse says “This is a wonderful opportunity for the international David Bowie community to come together to deliver a heartfelt thank you. A thank you to a man who changed our lives – and changed the world. A thank you not from government, nor from industry, but from us. The people. The fans. Us ordinary weirdos who were never quite the same again after meeting the Thin White Duke.”

Fantastic !

Exposition à la TATE de Rauschenberg ! J'espère que tu ne l'as pas ratée ?

Passé à ma Tate...J'ai bien aimé la City de nuit avec des immeubles futuristes à côté d'églises médiévales.


Je suis en train d'écouter le Low de Montreux en vinyl...superbe son...

J'espère que ce projet ne signifie par la disparition de cette fresque que j'ai enfin pu découvrir mardi dernier...
