I’ve taken a few trips down the coast to Bexhill over the past month, mostly to visit the De La Warr pavilion, poke around their many (many!) charity and second-hand shops, but also to see the wonderful Neutral Milk Hotel play.
(All these images come from my phone, so excuse the quality)
Currently on at the De La Warr, till September 14th, is an exhibition of New York-based designer Ivan Chermayeff‘s work. Whilst primarily more famed for his corporate branding (having created well known logos – such as the ones for NBC and Mobil), the exhibition focuses on his more personal and playful work, creating collages using cut/torn paper, found objects and rubbish.
At the bottom of the exhibition is a video on loop of him talking about his work for himself – his accent is great.
Check out those rugs.
I love the architecture of the building and surrounding area of the seafront. Above, is the pavilions stairs, and below the building at sunset, covered in NMH fans.
Next to the De La Warr are these great houses with these gardens that faced right onto the beach – I love their staircases.
On one of the trips I had this amazingly huge and cheap (I can’t remember exactly – but it was less than £6) all-day veggie breakfast at Sadie’s cafe. We also got some nice salads at The Wholesome Cafe.
Bookshops are wonderful. (say hi to Maria!)
