Pussy Power at Hackney WickED Art Festival

Oh what a weekend was had at Hackney WickED by hundreds of art fans... or so Pussy Power has heard, she didn’t see too much of it herself on account of working on her own events, but, as is usual with these things, so many people have told her all about it that she feels like she saw it all herself.

As it was she was holed up in her studio on Saturday 9th August striking BAD ATTITUDES, ie. striking attitudes (poses) very badly in the style of french actress and legendary Pussy Power exponent Sarah Bernhardt (see the full album of photos on the website).

Lovely to see so many charming people in Pussy Power’s Flowery Bower studio, it’s the first time she’s opened her studio to the world and it was a most agreeable experience. Best wishes go to the heavily pregnant lady, hopefully her birthing experience was Pussily Powerful... and lovely to meet Kirsty from Nova Magazine - hope you can make sense of what Pussy was saying! Massive Pant Thanks to everyone who popped in and shared a beer with Pussy Power :-)

It was an earlyish night for Pussy Power on the Saturday as she was getting married in the morning! Yes Pussy and her husband the Owl were celebrating their 8th wedding anniversary on Sunday 10th August and decided to get “double-married” in the style of the Owl and the Pussy Cat, so... playing ukuleles and singing, they embarked in their Beautiful Pea Green Boat (with all the usual honey, money, mince, quince etc. one needs for a wedding) on the stormy seas of the Wick and sailed away for a year and a day through wind and rain to Main Yard where they danced by the canal in formation for a while with the Hula Bridesmaids, had a quick rain break, after which a touching marriage ceremony was conducted in a car park to the strains of “Making Love Ukulele Style”...

HUGE PUSSY LOVE to all who helped get this together and to those who joined in and made it such a special day:

** to the fanny-tabulous Hula Bridesmaids... Lorna (her birthday was the very same day - HAPPY BIRTHDAY LO! hope you remember it forever xx) and to Perle, Marie and Sarah... you looked divine laydeez and thanks for looking after my Runcible Spoon xx

** to Uncle Hippy Snatch for his outstanding engineering expertise - the Beautiful Pea Green Boat’s mast was all his doing and he insisted on raising the Massive Pant sail and attaching the Gib Knickers himself - Pussy Loves you, you Salty Old Sea Dog xx

** to Mr Alex Chappel of Decima Gallery - you made a marvellous Pig of yourself Sir, many thanks :-)

** to Mr David C West, also of Decima, Pussy couldn’t have wished for a more pant-wettingly funny ceremony and couldn’t have scripted it better herself. Not content with the Turkey mask provided, DCW donned the Decima Dog Head and intoned the following:
“Madeleine’s been gone for over a year
We haven’t seen her anywhere.
Are you here Madeleine?
Are you there?
I NOW PRONOUNCE YOU MARRIED!!”
Sadly no photos exist of the ceremony itself but the memory of it will be burned into Pussy’s brain forever :-)

** to Margaret Stone and to all the people who sent me photos via facebook... to Perle, Lorna and Steffi for their pics and vids THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU xxxxx

** to Jo of Mother Studios and Elevator, and to all on the Hackney Wicked organising committee BIG PANT THANKS for all your hard work... see y’all next year!!

** and most of all thanks to my lovely husband the Owl - “Pussy said to the Owl,
You Elegant Fowl!
How charmingly sweet you sing!”
I love you more than ever and can’t wait to get triple-married xxxxxxxxx

“The Owl looked up to the stars above
And sang to a small guitar,
O lovely Pussy, O Pussy my love,
What a beautiful Pussy you are, you are, you are,
What a beautiful Pussy you are.
