Tittenhurst Park

This Tittenhurst Park blog is dedicated to John Lennon's home in Sunningdale, near Ascot, Berkshire between 1969 and 1971. The aim is to gather as much material relating to the estate as possible - obviously with the emphasis on the Lennon-era, but also concerning Tittenhurst Park as it was before and after John Lennon's ownership. In addition, there will be posts about and associated with the Beatles, plus any other rubbish I feel like. The blog is purely meant for the entertainment of anyone (assuming there is actually anyone) who, like me, has an unhealthy interest in one particular Georgian mansion. Those with anything interesting to contribute in the way of links, photos, scans, stories etc. please do contact me: tittenhurstlennon@gmail.com
(Legal: this blog is strictly non-commercial. All material is the property of the photographer/artist/copyright holder concerned. Any such who wishes a picture etc to be removed should contact me and I will do so. Alternatively, if someone is happy to see their photo on here, but would like a credit/link then let me know and I'll be happy to provide one).


This Is Not Here

Takahiko Iimura said: Following Yoko and John with an hand held camera in a rather shaky way, faraway from today's idolization and just an opportunity to bang on a piano. Yoko Ono staged an art show at the Everson Museum, Syracuse, New York that ran from October 9th-27th 1971, it was a ten year retrospective of her work entitled This is not here.

Takahiko Iimura produced an 18 minute film of the event. Visitors on the opening day included Ringo Starr, Allen Klein, Dick Cavett, Bob Dylan, John Cage, Dennis Hopper, Spike Milligan, Andy Warhol, Jack Nicholson and Frank Zappa.
1971, Japan, 8mm on dvd, colour, mono sound, 19 min.
