Yesterday couldn’t get hold of the storyteller, so David trying to get someone to get a message to him on foot – he is now out of mobile contact. So Plan B was getting a few basketry items to take home as David had some business in town. Two were 20,000/- each and one was 25,000/-
Today it is raining hard and David not around so managed to do a few emails and type some more of the diary before the electricity went down again. Looks like a day to myself – so until l can get back on the computer it looks like reading.
Interviewed Jacob for the workshop form but he really doesn’t have a lot to say about contemporary art in its broadest sense, however interesting to get his views.
Looks like someone from the British Council will come to the talk l will be giving on Wednesday at 32 Degrees East, Kampala. Rocca the director has made a good poster using one of my images from the witch doctor’s basket of tricks/medicines for the website.
Eria, the other artist in residence, said the acronym for PhD was ‘permanent head damage’ which was amusing. He is was thinking of going for a PhD, so l shared my experiences with him.
Electricity now out from 11am til 9 pm and still out! So reading more of ‘Giraffe’.
