I had to produce a mini-portfolio for the art residency application. Here goes a result (PDF file, 6 pages).

Greasy was a part of the art event called Debate in Speaker’s Corner, Hyde Park, Sun 21st Nov 2010. The event statement said that artists work will reflect on, initiate or partake in debate. Artists will engage with the site, the participants and the bystanders. We will stand by, carry or embody our work. We will not hide behind a glass of champagne but instead engage and respond to a pre-existing world that is loud, opinionated and in your face - a place that cares little for ambiguity and polished rhetoric.

Around 15 artists took part in the project; Greasy was showing there a first stage of his spam poetry compilation – a photo-album with written scraps of spam poetry and photos.

In total Greasy P printed out 51 photos during the Homeless Gallery group show. All images will be used to create another artwork. Big thank you goes to all who took part in the project.

Below are selected photos from the photo-performance by Greasy P in the Homeless Gallery at Dilston Grove.

During the private view and the following day Greasy P was taking photographs with visitors and printing them out on his portable printer. The printed photos (of size - 2×3″ | 5×7.6cm) were put on the wall and become his installation titled Greasy Photo.
The Homless Gallery exhibition is on from 12th to 21st November 2010 and is open daily from 9am to 4pm.
