Scottish Dogs

Mudskippers happened in the GARAGE.

We came, we saw, we investigated the similarities between duck and chicken.
Mudskippers, our micro-residency at the GARAGE event (part of the Edinburgh art festival) was comprised of 8 installations, one of which was added every hour until the site was filled with joyful works of art.

Here are a few highlights - thanks to Emma Bowen for organizing the event and all who attended. (except that one 'boring' man.)

The mudskipper, Japans grossest mascot since sex pissing and kareoke.

Literally a fish out of water, the mudskipper is a creature who relishes its own ugliness, the ugliness of life, and surrounds itself in slime.

A lazy lurking hero of its own habitat - born to serve no positive purpose what so ever it lives off filth and plankton and does a great deal to amuse with its vacant face and spastic posture.

The Mudskipper is a real animal kingdom equivalent of Grimes & Jones - and everything their art stands for.

'Mudskippers' will be a series of hourly changing art installations presented by two Yorkshire lumps as part of the GARAGE project at The Edinburgh Art Festival 2011.

Have you heard the lastest news? No? Not even by word of mouth?



Well I'll tell you then. Grimes & Jones (artists) won the Adam Ant (current-celeb) Tanquery Gin Award at the second annual Bad Art Salon.

The prize winning pieces were the gorgeous portrait suite, and the dramatic, smouldering inferno of birds, Swan Lake.

Ant, a known person said, 'I'll give them their due, they have done fabulous things in this earthly hemisphere'.

Thank you Adam and thank you to everyone who helped organize the event.

We will now drink the gin. Cheers.
