The Food And Art Trail In Cambridge
One of the great things being out and about in Cambridge is that you come across some very interesting things. Yesterday for example after a meeting at Stickybeaks I was making my way to CB2 to check out the exhibition of the Chinese Artist Chen Xi, who designed the banner for the Cambridge College Supper Club when I noticed some activity in one of the shops in Kings Street. Previously it was occupied by a furniture shop, but it now has been taken over by artists, who exhibit their art.
I was drawn into by the magnificent painting below. Two artists were busy finishing it and explained to me that the person they were painting was Anji Man of Changing Spaces. I was amazed, because of the colours they used: she almost looked like a Native American.
A few steps away, I stumbled across some bricks. Well, these are the most delicious bricks I have ever come across. They used food waste. Amazing isn’t it! I was a bit surprised as a chocoholic, that someone hadn’t finished the bar of chocolate…
There are some very interesting pieces on show. I spoke to another artist who filmed herself ironing and you can watch this on the cloth hanging from the ceiling. I will not give all the surprises away, but it’s definitely worth a visit. The opening of the exhibition is tonight from 5 to 8 pm at 6-16 Gallery in King Street.
After delicious Art on to CB2 for Chinese Art. Xi had just finished putting the umbrella and other Art work up and I was lucky to catch up with her and with the vegan Chef of CB1.
