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).


The Museum Of Modern Art Show - New York City

The Museum Of Modern Art Show

A 7 minute film of Yoko's non-existent fly exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Yoko advertised the happening in the Village Voice and produced a catalogue for which Iain MacMillan photographed flies inside a tent which were then superimposed onto various New York scenes and landmarks. The film is comprised of interviews with people leaving the museum who are asked what they thought of the "show"; a documentary of one of Ono's performance pieces. Patrons are invited to Ono's imaginary show at MOMA, only to discover that they are there to be filmed by John Lennon. In this fashion, the spectators become the art. Staff who worked at the museum apparently knew nothing about it and were not amused.
