This years Pick Me Up was held at Somerset House again. The part exhibition, part fair has an excellent, if a little too crowded atmosphere. The different styles and varied production methods are truly inspiring. Our attention in the exhibition area was particularly caught by pieces by Jennifer Argo and Laura Jouan.
Although I didn’t join one myself there were tables and chairs by all the stalls offering people the opportunity to create something whilst pausing from walking around the labyrinth of rooms and displays. Sometimes these events can be a little bit ‘too cool for school’ but Pick Me Up’ was anything but, with everyone manning the stalls, such as Pocko, having a genuinely friendly and approachable manner.
The only problem was I wanted to buy so many pieces that in the end I left empty handed. Already looking forward to next year!
