Reasons To Be Cheerful
launches 2 Dec 2022
Blackbird Rook SuperRare Space
with Nicola Bealing, Amanda Kyritsopoulou, Hannah Murgatroyd, Zoe Spowage, Lottie Stoddart, Erika Winstone

Ian McEwan, discussing his new novel – protest songs and dinosaur fossil. Pascale Ogier and Anna Dean – Neil Young, Viv Albertine. Eric Rohmer’s “Full Moon in Paris” – Vladimir’s front landing on its aris. The younger generation, making mistakes – paying peanuts for quality fakes. The changing light and each new day – comic timing from Theresa May. Opposable thumbs and soft dog’s ears – cadmium yellow and headlight deers. Crispy bacon and a slow cook stew – Francisco Goya and superglue. Dental work and hyacinths – Mendick’s slugs on homemade plinths. Discerning moths and wind in the grass – then raging hormones and tenderness. Reasons to be Cheerful… One. Two. Three. It would be easy to turn existing images into NFTs, but thoughtful contemporary artists are engaging with the possibilities of this new media and new audience. More than offering digital versions of previous work, they are able to reimagine and move in unexpected directions.
