'Homespun' brings together work by Ceci Lombardi and Lisa Hall - both exploring what it is to make your own fun from within a domestic setting.
Ceci has taken the traditional Portuguese 'Trapilhos' and with guidance and assistance from her mother and sister, she has woven her fragmented memories, thoughts and feelings creating a series of colourful abstract hanging works.
"Trapilhos" are long spagetti-like rags traditionally used in Portugal to create crochet kitchen rugs and other crafts. Ceci grew up with these in her home as her own mother also makes them. From these memories and the urge to explore them, she has knitted, painted, played, improvised and very simply had fun with them.
Lisa is inspired by childhood memories of creating unusual garden inventions with her family and has become captivated by a website that embodies this playful attitude - blowing bubbles on demand into a garden in Florida. For Duvet Days Lisa is inviting you to join in blowing bubbles, responding to the activity on the website.
The bubble cam was set up 10 years ago by a couple called Andie and Mike. People from all over the world visit the site to 'blow bubbles'. By using this online trigger, Lisa hopes to offer you an excuse to enjoy these type of games, to be interrupted by the fun of pointless play.
Please RSVP on facebook so that we can get enough bubbles and cocktails.
About Duvet Days
Duvet Days is a gallery in a Tiki Bar in artist's Roxy Topia and Paddy Gould's garden, it shows invited artists and serves cocktails.
" Each show opens one night but if you can't make it get in touch and arrange a time to come and see the work.
Days in your duvet are about a kind of self-sufficiency too, low maintenance, make your own fun, get loose.
That's an artistic point of view as well as something gently political. x "
