3 days @ Blasé House December 8 th /9 th /10th
After her incredibly successful Cézanne centered performance in November, in the Road to Reform Room on the second floor of the National Portrait Gallery, where she sung in front of a House of Commons “ painting, with queues at the door that had to be turned away, counter culture icon, Anne Pigalle continues with a 3 day art and performance show at Hackney Wicks newest and most exciting arts venue Blasé House.
Never Mind Jackson Bollocks Here’s Anne Pigalle! celebrates the 40th anniversary of Anne arriving in London as a punkette as well as the 40th anniversary of Punk.
Since these early Punk days, Pigalle has departed to many adventurous horizons without forgetting her ethics. Having worked with Michael Nyman, Tevor Horn and Adrian Sherwood, Pigalle was the only French woman to have ever been signed to a Major UK Label. Recent projects have seen her work with Leonard Cohen and John Lee Hooker musicians for the music. She remains amidst a film project initially started with Donald Cammell in LA
Pigalle has also managed highly successful exhibitions as an artist, with the Michael Hoppen Gallery in the King’s Road with her hugely influential erotic sophisticated self portrait polaroids that redefined the London art scene. She’s also completed fun and sexy cabaret related painting shows at the Aquarium Gallery teaming up with Jimmy Cauty, Jamie Reid and Billy Childish. She’s been called the modern Piaf for her music and the modern female Toulouse Lautrec by her compatriots.
Crowned Queen Of Soho, Pigalle has been a fixture for 3 decades organising and enjoying Londons social hub and has recently campaigned vigorously against the gentrification of Soho
