Glasgow Gypsyland. Filmed across Glasgow early this year Delaine 'landed' in the city finding her way to the Necropolis to find the tombstone of Corlinda Lee famous for her invention of the "Gypsy Ball" in Victorian times, which was an inspiration for the To Gypsyland Gypsy Ball held in Brockwell Park on July 6th this year. Delaine walked around the city to find massive re construction taking place and a sense of seeing the city from the eye of her 'crystal ball' giving a different perspective while "Get Lost" was a instruction to her "GG'" or "Glasgow Gypsy". Part of new work made for To Gypsyland for the installation created at Tramway. Edited by Damian Le Bas togypsyland.blogspot.co.uk www.glasgownecropolis.org/profiles/corlinda-lee/+ More details

I have visited Peterborough a number times the filming for this film was all shot while planning and researching for To Gypsyland and working with METAL who now have a base there in Chauffeurs Cottage. Everywhere I visit I try to go with no preconceived ideas of what a place is going to be like, that I've just 'landed' and what my impressions are? Inspiration for me came from the Green Backyard and John Clare Cottage. Ideas connected with the land, contested space, peoples relationship to the land and also to Gypsies. Each place To Gypsyland travels to is the inspiration for the works created. Filmed by Delaine Le Bas Editing and sound by Damian James Le Bas To Gypsyland A Studio Practice and Archive Project by Delaine Le Bas.

The Scream was performed inside our installation Safe European Home? on 15th June 2013 for The Dandelion Project at Traneudstillingen in Copenhagen. the performance dealt with issues of private space, difference and the problems, suppression and difficulties of being 'the other' within 'the other' unspoken hardships that exist in the forming of ones own space when you wish to break away from the confines of what your own society and the bigger societies expectations are of you and which do not match your own. This group exhibition was curated by Huskegruppen (The Memory Group) who are Peter Brandt and Tomas Lagermand Lundme. The project was supported by Traneudstilligen, Gentofte Kommune, Statens Kundstrad Danish Arts Council. Filmed by Damian Le Bas Snr.
