Improvathon 2013

jazamin sinclair / drawing, exhibitions, liverpool, painting, performance, Uncategorized, writing / / 0 Comments

Here are images of the artwork I created for 33.33 hours (2013 minutes) during Impropriety’s depraved & debauched Improvathon 2013. I documented scenes as they happened in front of me and used quotes for a lot of the pictures. I only slept for about an hour when I literally passed out/couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer. As a result some of the episodes/scenes could quite possibly be a bit mixed up and some of the outfits are painted using the wrong colours. To be honest, some pieces are also considerably better than others: I was after all improvising & didn’t have a clue what I was going to do when I got there. They got a bit better over time.

If you want to know more about the story/plot read the live blog from the weekend.

if you want to see some of them in real life, a few of these pictures are currently on display at The Egg in HeadSpace@EggSpace’s Painting Exhibition which is up until 12th May 2013.

All are available to purchase for £33.33 unless marked sold. Limited edition prints are also available from £20.13 (A4 size). If you were a cast member or part of Impropriety’s team, I am offering everything at 1/2 price. And if you want them framed they will cost more. Please email me at: jazamin@mac.com or call 07811059702 for more info.

Do you know your how to adjust your white balance so that your photos don’t come out blue? Do you want to know how to take long exposure shots.

Tuebrook Transnational: Journey Through The Brook (Part 2, Page 2)For example, what was shopping like on West Derby Road 60 years ago? Have you ever heard of the Lister Drive Miracle? Would you like to hear what the kids from the youth club think about Tuebrook, or maybe even join the Newsham Park Pirates? If you answered yes to any of those questions then join us all for Journeys Through The Brook which is made by local residents.

Twinned 2012 in association with Threshold Festival

Twinned Twinned 2012 in association with Threshold FestivalThreshold Festival is returning again in just over a month’s time & the big news is that this year it’s not just under one roof it’s under many roofs all situated in Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle! The Festival will all take place from 10th – 12th February 2012 and if last year is anything to go by it promises to be a fantastic event that brings most of Liverpool’s creative family together!

Once again I am involved in organising visual arts for the festival with HeadSpace@EggSpace.
