I Never Tell Anybody Anything #4 A reminder that life can be flippant. O, cleanse my flippant soul. By the powers that be, o, stop me from thinking everything can be a joke. A photograph of a negative of a photograph taken by the curator of a friend, in a pub car park on the Whalley Road. At his feet, a papier-mâché badger. The curator had made the badger as a wedding present for another friend. Taken shortly before a journey to Bedford to present the badger. And shortly after eviction from the pub. Photograph of a photocopy of a pen and ink sketch by the curator of two Soviet Cadets. Drawn around 2005. From the book, ‘Russia from the Inside’, by Robert Kaiser and Hannah Jopling Kaiser.
