“Sitting in the bus stop waiting for the bus that comes once a day, reading the marks left by previous waiters, building a picture of passing time, imagined journeys, reminiscences, stories true and half true, the epicentre of parochial life.
A means of escape, a ferry to the wider world, some buy return tickets some buy singles, some never get on the bus.
All life works its way outwards from this slatted wooden hut. Spidery, smelling of creosote, the DNA of previous occupants, Embassy 10 pack, cans of cider, carvings on the walls, a broken lighter.
After the bus has been the shelter takes on its secondary function, a meeting point for owners of 50cc and 1.1l.
Heroes of a fleeting age, girls, hash, cherry bombs, bass bins, back seat blow jobs.”
This is Harry Malt, everyone. We're going to the show to try and make sense of it so watch out for a review to come. ‘Until that day I love you anyway’ runs from 10th February to 7th March at the Print House Gallery in Dalston, at 18 Ashwin Street, London E8 3DL. Open daily between 9am to 5pm.
