Hastings artists go wild in Venice

Every two years, Venice is taken over by international artists: art in the churches, in palazzos, in industrial buildings. Anywhere you can install a sculpture, hang a painting or have a performance is part of the Venice Biennale. Exhibiting amongst the colony of artists are not one, but four Hastings and St Leonards artists, Danny Pockets, Maslen&Mehra and Shuby. HOT’s Lauris Morgan-Griffiths spoke to Jennifer Maslen about their experience.

Scroobius Pip

Pipped at the post…

Lyricist Scroobius Pip (left) is one half of the chart-topping hip-hop duo dan le sac vs Scroobius Pip. Going back a few years, the duo worked with Hastings film-maker Richard Heslop and local teens to make their ‘Get Better’ video in Lacuna Place and Queensbury House, Hastings. So far, sadly, the nearest they have got to playing a gig in Hastings will be Eastbourne’s Winter Gardens on Wednesday 30 April. Scroobius Pip writes in an honest and direct manner, leaving out the hedonistic and instead aiming for the raw and heavy. Helen Brown interviewed him about his approach to making music in the digital age.
