If you have followed Prov from the begining, you will know that Prov is a twin. This weekend I took his brother to London to hand him over to his new owner. Every experiment needs a control which does not change and that is Provs brother. He will kept out of the limelight and will be given no provenance and therefore can be used to compare with the value of Provs provenance. Here he is checking out the protest at St Pauls Cathedral. The Provenance Brothers are capitalist by nature because socialist sculptures would all be worth the same! We had a nice time looking around and meeting a few lovely folks while we had our lunch. I then took him to Tate Modern to see his place in art history before he is put on the shelf for good.
Me and Prov hope you are having a horrific halloween! We were very disapointed with the lack of horror movies on the telly so we had to entertain ourselves. Our pick of the the evening was 'Attack the Block' Which was the best movie I have seen this year and Prov said it's the best film he has seen ever. Next we are watching 'Stake Land.'
Don't forget to buy Zombina and the Skeletones single 'Teenage Caveman Beat Gargantua' before midnight on Nov 1st or you will turn into a pumpkin!
Keith Lemon is a man after Prov's heart, he is the only person to love celebrities more than Prov! We met him signing his new book 'The Rules: 69 ways to be successful'
Prov has been studying it all day and would like to say that he is single and is on the lookout for a sexy sculpture for long walks and sunsets and to email your pictures in to email@example.com
Me and Prov had a blast last night at Psycho Motels Charity Ball Gag, an event in honour of their late friend and co-founder Sir Ann Goodknight. Prov made some new friends and saw some great bands! including The O'Fishel Jazz band, Raw Bones, El Toro and Zombina and the Skeletones. Prov got a bit spannered but otherwise a unforgetable night! If you want to see more find provenance man on facebook :)
Since we missed the Edinburgh Festival and the Mathiew street Festival, I treated Prov to a ticket to see legendary parents of reggae 'Toots and the Maytals!' We had a lovely time and Toots was kind enough to sign Prov and give us this great picture :)
'We, the Undersigned' didn't just support, they rocked, rapped and reggaed round the entire city block!
Prov made some great new friends! Here he is with Hollyoaks and Brookside star Kristian Ealey. It was good talking to you Kristian :) Nice one!
Prov braved the riots in liverpool to see writer and comedian Simon Day while he was promoting his new book 'Comedy and Error.' Me and Prov heard some excerpts read by the man himself and we recommend that you loot a copy as soon as possible ;) only kidding, give the man your money! Thanks Simon x
On the right is Doc Horror, from Zombina and the Skeletones and on the left Good Guy Joe. You may recognise them both as garage surfers El Toro. Prov had never been to the Kazimier before but he really liked it :)
From right to left; Jaws , Doc Horror, rapper Richard Wilkie Riley from Dick Limerick Academy, Prov suggests you listen to their album 'Merseycide' and search You tube for his rap battles! on the left is Obi Wan Kenobi known for defending the galaxy against the dark side. Prov suggests you watch the original Star Wars movies :)
Doc Horror and his beautiful girlfriend Ida Ghostique who you may recognise from her amazing vintage and fancy dress shop Curious Orange in Grand Central, Renshaw st, Liverpool. It's also where Prov bought his tickets to Psycho Motel VII! They showed Provenance Man a great time, Thanks! He'll be back next time for sure :)
Prov met auther of the Rizzoli & Isles series, Tess Gerritsen while she was signing her new book 'The Silent Girl.' He also donated to Dundee University Million for a Morgue campain and voted for it to by named after Tess Gerritsen and he urges you to do the same! Thanks Tess!
Today Prov met local Historian and author Ken Pye while he was promoting his new book 'Discover Liverpool- the definitive history book of liverpool.' If you want a copy signed yourself he will be at Radio Merseyside again on Saturday 30th July from 12 until 2. Thanks Ken :)
One of the two brothers will go to live with my artist friend, who will give him different provenance. years from now and periodically we will have them valued. When they gain some provenance from a person or a place it is recorded on a little tag and hung from him somewhere.
