Andrew Logan ‘Jewellery Parade’ for Salon 63 May 2018

To launch Salon 63 in May this year Andrew Logan led one of his iconic 'jewellery performances', starting from a former hairdressers turned Peak Art, 20 volunteer performers (many recruited as residents down the number 63 bus) paraded around the soon-to-be-demolished Elephant and Castle Shopping Centre. The performance's main intention was to spread Andrew’s glorious philosophy of joy and celebration of life. This message is also indicative of Salon 63’s predominant principles, inclusivity and celebration of London’s community spaces linked with self-care. Andrew’s largely glass and mirrored creations, which when inhabited by the performers, became living sculptures, reflected the environment around them as they moved along the route. The parade was accompanied by Brazilian London-based musician Xavier Osmir and his Banda Batuke playing Batucada Samba to celebrate the surrounding Latino community, many of whom are soon-to-be displaced due to the area’s new property developments. Documentation of the performance by Leah Morris will be screened in the Shopping Centre’s Colombian Restaurant La Bodeguita whose smaller cafe hosted the parade’s team break in between circuits
