our exhibition preparations have entered its practical phase. We began in haste with one tin of paint, soon to double and to discover white is not always brilliant white, it can be in fact quite yellow. After the first painting, palimpsests of our temporary gallery's hairgrooming past had been unearthed, and peeled from the walls along with the paint, to our surprise.
And so we began again, third tin in hand - even more brilliant white - but not before cake.
A note to our participants - do not panic. The paint is drying.
