To Stratford last night. Caught the Javelin high-speed train from St Pancras, walking under extraordinary rattling sound overhead – huge hailstones on the glass arched Barlow roof. Stratford environs very J.G. Ballard. Artist Bob and Roberta Smith aka Patrick Brill has collaborated with film-maker Tim Newton to make ‘Who is community?’. Bob and Roberta’s paintings on display in Stratford Underground entrance. Liked the moustache motif – some of the film’s action takes place in one of the main character’s twirler. Most excellent evening at Stratford cinema watching films about artists in Leytonstone, ‘Trimming Picasso’, a fictionalised account of Picasso’s visit to Sheffield in 1950, and ‘Who is community?’.
