Loading Mercury with a Pitchfork
The title of this exhibition, taken from a 1971 poem by cult author Richard Brautigan, is a starting point for a reflection on small unorthodox acts, be they alternative forms of labour or a metaphor for the role of the artist as quiet subversive.
4-7 June 2015, Nice Gallery, 30 Watermill Way, Colliers Wood/Wimbledon, London SW19.

Moments of Confluence: A River’s Song
