Memories of Seeing Things 18th May 2019

This Seeing Things trip was to The Tramway to see Pia Camil’s Bara, Bara, Bara and the Hidden Gardens.

I wanted to let everyone know how wonderful the experience was and I decided the best way to this was through pictures. I created the following (let’s call it a zine).

Seeing Things Visits Tramway & Hidden Gardens

Saturday 18th May 2019. Discovering a hidden keyring. A pair of jeans on pink t-shirt. Pia Camil's installation before Seeing Things' visit! Brilliant rainbow turtle design on t-shirt. Noticing a keyring hidden in the jeans pile.

'Bara' shortened from ... 'Barato' Mexican for 'Cheap'. "Bara, bara, bara" is the cry of street vendors at Iztapalapa street markets of Mexico. Deconstructed t-shirts. Sewn together. Large 'tarpaulin'. Suspended in the installation.

T-shirts & jeans produced in Latin America for retailers & organisations in U.S.A. Illicitly find their way back to Mexico City's street markets. Large deconstructed & reformed stretches of fabric, suspended: creates the impression of Mexico City's street market. Funny messages were found. Tarpaulins were colour coded. Jeans' waistbands sewn together & stuffed with jeans. Key chain(s) from Glasgow's Barras.

If you like the look of what we got up to on Saturday 18th May – why not consider joining us in the future. The next trip is on Tuesday 28th May 2019 (GoMA) or perhaps you would prefer Friday 21st June 2019 St Mungo’s Museum.
