In The Land Of The Cyclops

 

When you come home from work one afternoon to find that your back window has been blinded by a giant poster of three fashionable ladies, each with one eye covered, images from i-D magazine which turns its name sideways to form a winking face, the only appropriate recourse would be to take a large knife and cut yourself a peeper. The pigeons by KVLR and Apache Tribe have yet to peck their way free of the flower-headed man to uncover the window on the Gresham Street side.

The images were part of the 2019 Belfast Photo Festival. Covered over is NOTA’s 2013 Belfast Butcher

Find The Link In The Chain

“‘It is not enough to be a revolutionary and an adherent of socialism or a Communist in general. You must be able at each particular moment to find the particular link in the chain which you must grasp with all your might in order to hold the whole chain and to prepare firmly for the transition to the next link; the order of the links, their form, the manner in which they are linked together, their difference from each other in the historical chain of events are not as simple and not as senseless as those in an ordinary chain made by a smith.’ – Vladimir Lenin. Workers’ Party West Belfast [Fb].” The quote is from Lenin’s  The Immediate Tasks Of The Soviet Government in 1918.

#SafeShankill

Social distancing was hard to maintain in some areas (BelTel) but many people celebrated the 12th from home this year, thank in part to messages such as appear on this pair of paste-ups in Olive Street and Glenvale Street off the Woodvale Road. “This year the bands are coming to you!” “This year’s 12th is about the battle with the [coronavirus] bug.”
