It is with great sorrow in my heart; regret in my stomach; missed opportunity for calcium in my bones; and most of all, the mounting fear in my mind to finally uncover a morbid truth that I have kept hidden from you, for all these years.
The family were all too familiar with my hatred towards broccoli as a child. However, you have been kept in the dark regarding the full extent of this loathing, which verged onto the point of devilry.
For there was a time in my childhood - more specifically: Dinner Time - where I made ‘Broccoli Eating’ a purely theatrical performance. Frequently, you would witness the escalating confrontation with each consecutive pronged floret on my fork; followed by the inevitable tortured grimace as I reluctantly masticated the distasteful contents stuffed in my mouth for what seemed like hours on end - every night.
However, with each exaggerated chew, this show-biz act allowed me to bide my time until you would eventually leave the dinner table. On your departure, my warped, yet highly strategic plan would commence. I would shamelessly gob out this mound of now congealed green gunge into some ready-prepared multi-folds of toilet tissue. I would then artfully sculpt this substance into a compact ball and then quickly dispose the evidence into the big green bin – all before the highly absorbent package caused great leakage, which could have potentially expose my sin.
What a disgusting waste; a despicable crime; a dishonour to the Song family.
Mother, please forgive me.
The Glasgow School of Art and Platform are now entering their fourth year of collaboration. With a focus on site-specific work, the show features nine students in their final year of the Sculpture and Environmental art course. Much of the work is formed out of a response to the people and communities that comprise Easterhouse and surrounding districts, whilst others respond to the layered histories of the area. In some instances, the artist is concerned strictly with the space and the possibilities that lie there in.
