TUESDAY 30 SEPTEMBER 08 open keyboard PIANO NIGHT new art on the bar wall GERRY ASHLEC new art in the library YUCO OTA new art on the stairwell CHRISSSYBOY 080930.fears.jpg Chrisssyboy, an androgynous Peter Pan, bluntly questions the audience on their own fantasies, phobias, fears and frustrations by manipulating, torturing, mutilating and objectifying his own body and soul...The vulgar and artificial staging refuses to deceive the audience and rejects naturalism and realism: a DIY theatre where imperfection (dust, stains, and apparent cut outs) is celebrated. No one will escape these huis clos, this limbo where a sparkle of light does not bring hope but a greater threat. Chrisssyboy is an artist who lives in London in search of more stories to uncover. http://www.chrisssyboy.com

Steve has always been fascinated by food, and the traces it leaves. 'This is Shit', his last show at the Foundry, used text on walls and monitors to look at the poetics of excrement. IO1 BURNT PAPER PLATES focuses on pre-digestive remains, stains of food on paper plates burned and in other ways manipulated to make them more beautiful. IO1 BURNT PAPER PLATES are presented in this exhibition - for their beauty and for the transformative act they represent. I01 burnt paper plates a magic number a magic act to make a paper plate art to take it away from a knife and fork IO1 BURNT PAPER PLATES celebrates what we leave behind; like the celebrations of art and religion they are evidence of our history, albeit in scatological miniature. STEVE RUSHTON studied art at Kingston Polytechnic in the early 1980's. He then worked as an artist and exhibited regularly until 1993, stopped, studied and taught art history for 10 years, then started again. http://www.steverushton.org.uk
