Miriam and I started working on this project together from practically the day we met 18 months ago. When I first read it I couldn't stop laughing. I absolutely loved it and the more I talked about it with Miriam, the more I wanted to help her to exhibit it in the best possible way.
The piece is all about Miriam's relationship with Martin Creed and how he broke her heart. In the work she tells her story in the style of confessional 'Take a Break' magazine.
It took a long time for us to get to this point, we visited galleries, empty shops, even had a meeting with the head honchos at Trafalgar Square. But when we visited 'The Nave' in Islington we realised we'd found the PERFECT space. And it was OUR space. We didn't have to change the work, we didn't have to apologise for anything, we could show it in it's full glory and sing 'All Rise' by Blue with a choir.
I have absolutely LOVED working on this. Thank you Miriam for getting me involved and thank you everyone who helped make it happen.
Here's some pictures and there will be a video to follow.
