I would like to write today about one of the best, if not the best private view I’ve experienced. Why and what happened? I’ve decided to approach talking with people during the event in a different way, and combine that with gaining my skills as an interviewer. What for? I’ve been given my own show on Colourful Radio! Becoming their artist in residence will give me a chance to report and portray monthly, an artist of my choice. My slot is going to be 20 minutes and will be running during “Art, culture and life with Rosemary Laryea“. The first show is already on, on October 2oth, at 12.0o. I’ll be portraying the winner of New Sensation Artist, Saatchi Gallery’s and Channel 4′s competition. There are 4 finalists, and the winner will be revealed tomorrow, October 8th. I need every chance to practice, I can get! That’s why October’s Private View at Debut Contemporary, was so useful. Nigel from Flixels gave me a microphone, and he’d been recording the variation of dialogues, interviews of the night. Dropping just a few examples, I talked to at least a dozen of artists, photographers, even a couple of politicians and an icon of British photography, Mr Angelo Valentino. Yes, I got to talk with him, and we had a very interesting discussion about current art scene and future of film, music and photography in ever changing digitalized world. Now I just have to get the files from Nigel from Flixels and try to listen, whether it all worked. I’ll bring another blog article fully dedicated to it, once I have a better idea of what I have, and what sort of quality it came out. I’m already so looking forward to it! Until next time, have a good day and all the best to you all. Silvia
What a day it was on Wednesday! I managed to get in to Angela Marmont Centre for Bio Diversity, Natural History Museum, London, which is specialized research centre open to public and professionals, to search, study, identify and talk to experts about anything you can think of from Natural History. Not always booking recommended. I was in need of seeing Bombylius Major. I love the name, sounds like a soldier fly, but in fact it is a Bee-Fly. The name might be misleading. It is a fly, that pretends to be a bee! It’s behaviour is fascinating. It lays eggs in bee and wasp nests, it pollinates flowers with it’s elongated nose and it hates cold. It can wrap up it’s wings around to keep warm. So much more to tell, but instead, I present to you, my own photos of the specimen. Cheers and remember, not all that looks like a bee, is a bee! Don’t kill it.

I became an art surgeon for the day. I was testing what happens when I cast some grapes in plaster. It was coming out easier than the previous materials I used. I didn’t expect to have so much fun excavating it from the setting. Watching it back makes me giggly for some reason. It is disgusting and organically beautiful at the same time.
