Planning our 1st exhibition together with Spinster Voom!

Pic taken by Spinster Voom. Here I am with my daughter posing with the curator for the Pages Exhibition, Spinster Voom outside my PR office. As you can see, Fwwix's ageplay antics have caught the curator's undivided attention (and probably suspicion) ;-)

Hey contemporary art and ageplay fans,

Yaaaay! We finally have our first exhibition confirmed! We will be preparing a special performance installation for Spinster Zoom on behalf of the Pages Exhibition. Our performance installation will be projected into the Notice Gallery in London (Deptford, East London) :-) This exhibition should take place sometime in June.

Spinster wanted to interview us first as research for her curatorial development and presentation of our collaborative art-performance-installation-sculpture-whatever ;-)

Here is an excerpt from the interview (Fwwixli was very articulate, I am proud!):

1) How would you describe
your work?

Wirxli Flimflam: I describe my work as conceptual and paternal ;-)

Fwwixli Swindlehurst: controvertial, humorous
Fwwixli Swindlehurst: I'm the kid
Fwwixli Swindlehurst: he's my father
Fwwixli Swindlehurst: we hang around in high profile events
Fwwixli Swindlehurst: with bodyguards
Fwwixli Swindlehurst: :-D
Fwwixli Swindlehurst: wirx is an sl celebrity
Fwwixli Swindlehurst: I sit on his shoulders when I'm not zooming around on my skateboard , making the bodyguards work for their money

2) Who is your main influence?

Wirxli Flimflam: my daughter and the hyper-liberal tolerance of Lindens and Furries towards the ageplay community
Wirxli Flimflam: that answer is maybe only describing one influence
Wirxli Flimflam: but it related to our
collaboration for your show more directly

Fwwixli Swindlehurst: I'm the sidekick
Fwwixli Swindlehurst: I'm trying to dig my memory for well known side kicks
Wirxli Flimflam: Robin...
Wirxli Flimflam: Tonto
Fwwixli Swindlehurst: no no
Fwwixli Swindlehurst: there was this american tv show about this guy who has a tv talk show
Fwwixli Swindlehurst: his sidekick was bald and had a moustache

3) Who would you most like to collaborate with?

Wirxli Flimflam: other than my daughter?
Wirxli Flimflam: ok
Wirxli Flimflam: another person is Alan Dojoji...I have asked him but no firm reply
Wirxli Flimflam: hopefully, also Fau ferdinand

I hope we did not give her the wrong impression! I think she understands the bigger picture of Ageplay within the ever tolerant context of British Contemporary Art ...phew!

So, I apologize for the delay with blogging this post but I literally just finished an in-world conference panel for Ars Virtua.

I gotta hurry with wrapping up this blog posting because I want to blog that panel on my main personal blog ASAP...There is not really much more to say about last night's occasion except that both Fwwixli and yours truly are looking forward to this upcoming exhibition! So, here quickly are the rest of my text-captioned snapshots from our meeting with Spinster...

Photo by Spinster Voom.This pic taken by Spinster is my personal favourite...It highlights the charming features of Fwwixli's face :-)

Based on what the chat-history says here, I guess Fwwixli was deeply inspired by Dancoyote Antonelli's postering job at the OSMOSA opening.

Spinster seems to be admiring the view from my PR office in this pic. I hope you are admiring Fwwix's spectacular toilet-paper roll! :-)

For this pic, we feature 2 special guests. One is my automated drug-dealer named "iixlii". He is the official fundraiser for Fwwix Aid and one of my revenue sources to ensure that Fwwixli keeps on getting her own bodyguard security detail. Speaking of bodyguards, one of our guards almost tore apart Gumnosophistai Nurmi at Gaz's opening a little awhile ago. I guess he stumbles around alot because he drunkenly invaded my personal space at that opening and caused an altercation with me and my guard. Anyways, Gumno has since become a colleage and co-performer in the Avatar Orchestra Metaverse. He actually was just wondering around Odyssey and stumbled upon us at my PR office..he had no idea I had my own PR Office. Well, I made formal apologies for the body-guard fiasco and formal introductions to Fwwixli and Spinster.... Everything is now ready to go for the exhibition in June...Yaaaay!

OSMOSA - Quality time with Fwwixli...

Here we are on the 2nd floor in front of Dancoyote Antonelli's large open-source poster. Wow, that is a really good self-promo idea! I also saw his poster plastered on the museum's main wall outside.

Hey performance art, open source and adoption fans!

I had a great time hanging out with Fwwixli at the OSMOSA (Open Source Museum of Open Source Art) opening. I waited with my personal bodyguard in the main lobby while waiting for her to show up. She arrived by the time I wandered up to the first floor of the museum. I thought I would need extra bodyguard backup but it turned out that Fwwixli was very well behaved...phew!

Here are some more snapshots...

This is a pic of Koco Furse's "Avatar in a Cage" performance...I thought it was pretty kewl! It was definitely an endurance piece in the 1970s performance art tradition! In the chat history, you will notice that my Second Front co-member Man Michinaga is referring to someone named "Yael". He is referring to the media artist Yael Kanarek. I think he gave her a tour of SL earlier in the day. It also looks like Second Front has a new official fan... Ofelia Laval might actually visit Man Michinaga in RL to join him in attending the Second Life Community Convention in Chicago...wow!

Awwwe...it is always soooo cute when Fwwix decides to sit on my shoulders! It is funny how much glue is on her customly scripted shoulder pads (which she places on other avatars so she can sit on them)...I mean, I can walk up the stairs and run around she still sticks to me..in fact, even when she falls off, she gradually glides back right into place like some sort of smart-bomb! Wow! Oh, take note of her roll of toilet paper...You would probably rather not know what is for ;-) Also, there is anew avatar whom I just met named Veeyawn Spoonhammer. He brought us up to the roof because he built a giant version of himself on this very same roof!

...and here it is, Veeyawn's giant robot! I zoomed out with my camera but still could not fit the entire robot's torso into my field-of-view...wow! I wonder if was using his Linux operating system while building this leviathan automaton!

So, I knew that my bodyguard's shift was coming to a close so I thought it would be safest if I fled just before 7 PM had rolled around. Just before I split the scene to leave my daughter in the care of Man Michinaga, my friend Lior Humphreys showed up after a 20 minute hiatus. During that hiatus period, I think he made a brand new friend...he introduced me to him - his name is Aaires Aabye...I loved his Brazillian shirt! You will also notice that Ofelia is asking us about Second Front. Anyways, I had to rush off to keep safe and to begin this blog which you are currently reading and now I am done blogging this post finally...yaaaaaay!

Gaz is awsome !!!

I love tornados ,they confuse bodyguards too :)))
I had loads of fun making the work for their money ,trying to keep up with me
Dad kept nagging ,he didn't like me hiding inside the avatar orgy (that's what I call
the stage with pose balls ), Nick was the best body guard though ,she found me even when I was hiding between too walls so I figured there's no point and just ordered her around sitting on her shoulders :)
after dad left I hang around with dad's friend Tran - he was wearing his pajamas
but then changes into some cool black pom pom and wanted us to go steal some stuff for money for drugs .I gave him some and he left ... hope dad didn't pay him for babysitting cause that sucked

Fwwixli's reunion at Gazira Babeli's one-year retrospective!

Awwwwe..how cute! Here we are at Gazira Babeli's one-year retrospective exhibition on Odyssey Island... Fwwixli is sitting on the shoulders of one my personal bodyguards (Nick Kelly - yes, Nick is a "she") while Foster-Mama Tea Chenille keeps a compassionate eye for Fwwix's safety and all the while having some extra armed security support by Bear Brooks! This is indeed a family pic of sorts - even Second Front co-member Lizsolo Mathilde made a cameo appearance! We are like one big happy family, really!

Hey performance art, ageplay and adoption fans!

Finally, my daughter Fwwixli felt comfortable enough with our recent reunion to join me and my bodyguards to a VIP gala event and an official opening for Gazira Babeli's one-year retrospective exhibition called "Collateral Damage" in the main gallery on Odyssey Island. This event was curated by Sugar Seville and Beavis Palowakski who is also the architect of Odyssey's main gallery.

Anyways, we all attended Gaz's VIP media gala and the official opening and both events were sure a blast (usually a blast of aesthetically pleasing superprims)!

Alot of my friends were there and also a few strangers so it was a good thing I trusted my intuition and hired Stilleto Inc. I highly recommend this service to any other SLebrity who was recently become an Ava-Star due to the creative renaissance of this golden year, 2007.

This is the first time I have ever had to hire bodyguards but this certainly will not be the last time.... If you are a SLebrity like me, having personal protection is well worth the investment!

At one point, I thought someone was either shooting at me or Fwwixli! Fortunately, it turned out to be the sound of Fwwixli's sk8board...phew! I think from now on that I will be having bodyguards with me to protect me and my daughter at every high-profile event from now on... I just cannot risk losing my precious Fwwix again!

Well, here are more pix of the event...

In this pic, we see Fwwix taking full advantage of my hired bodyguards' service while Ian Ah looks around...One can hear Second Front co-member Tran Spire making his way towards us... I got the sense that he wanted to show Fwwixli how adults party...sigh!

This pic gives you a better sense of the attendence at Gaz's official opening night. I was actually there with Fwwixli and my guards earlier in the day for the press and media (for the 1st shift, Sturdus Goldblatt stood in for their company's boss Nick Kelly as one of my bodyguards). It looks like the press were still at the 6 PM PDT opening (the opening for V.I.Ps, Italians and Media started at 1 PM PDT) because I seem to be showing off the return of my daughter to everyone in the media-world including Aidan Aquacade from SPark Magazine. Some people were already getting to know Fwwixli quite well throughout the day. For example, my good friend from Frankfurt named Lior Humphreys said he had some nice chats with her. A few people were telling me that the colourful display in the middle of the gallery on opening night was actually a prim-war between Gaz and Dancoyote Antonelli...This is what I love about making art in SL - no one wins nor loses but is able to make alot of pretty fireworks together!

Here is another touching moment that I managed to snap at just the right time...we can see a parental exchange between Tea and Fwwixli....awwweee... :-)I am so glad lil' Fwwix has decided to come back to the fold so she can meet her extended/adopted family :-)

Fwwixli was really making the rounds that night. Like parent, like daughter - she was able to network seemlessly with my colleagues. Here she is chatting up another Second Front co-member, Man Michinaga. It was also comforting to see that my life-partner, Tea was also appreciating the service that my bodyguards were providing. I think it is essential that a true professional bodyguard service learns to have a close working relationship with their client...they must know who they are protecting after all... Perhaps one day, they will be able to see through our SLebrity veil. But for now, it is strictly business but they were very very professional and intuitive when it came to determining who my true friends were :-)

Here is Tran literally begging for Fwwixli's attention...It is a good thing I know Tran very well and trust him deeply...normally, I would not trust some glam dude with long turquoise hair and an Op-Art zoot suit to come anywhere near my daughter, especially when assuming the prostrating position...I trusted Tran enough to babysit my daughter once my time at the gallery was up and I left the scene with my personal bodyguards. I reminded him that Fwwixli is not yet an adult and should be treated as such...She is only allowed drugs for mind altering purposes and should not try anything addictive..I hope he was joking about firing up some glass pipes...sigh!

Hey there performance art and adoption fans!

Great news! My foster daughter has returned to me after about 10 days of running away from me. She really put me through the emotional wringer this time. I even had to hire a couple of Private Investigators from Stiletto Inc but most of Fwwixli's trail went dry.

When we finally reunited on Fau Ferdinand's Neo Goa island, Fwwixli made up some excuse that she was hallucinating on Festival Island somewhere and kept on turning into a default avatar known as a "Ruth". I am not sure whether or not I believe her version of the "ruth" but for now I am just glad that she is back with me. Now we can work towards our collaborative exhibition together...

I have learned one thing from all this though and that is the next time I take her to a large scale publicity event, I am going to hire bodyguards for sure!

My guess is the next major event where I will need to hire bodyguards to protect Fwwixli will be at Gazira Babeli's retrospective opening on Odyssey Island... Here is a pic of me posing beside the banner for that show...

On another note, I would like to thank all the sponsors of Fwwix Aid who bought drugs from my personal dealer-bot, iixlii:

Art Metropole L$500
Auntie Chi5 Shenzhou L$51
Sugar Seville - Odyssey Island L$20
Maximillian Nakamura L$60

I also wish to thank Delta Klata who took the time to offer to volunteer her services for free to help me find my daughter. Maybe I will see if Fwwixli wants to be Delta's friend. She could sure use some better role models as her peers :-)

Here is another pic...
