Mostly Uninvited 725


Charlotte Wiggins, who likes to eat her nan’s scouse straight from the pan, possibly. I, for one, know where she is coming from. Photo by James Peltekian.

The picture was taken from Evening Standard Magazine (29.5.15), found on a train.

If You Are New Here: This project started (Jan 2015) with me sewing junk-mail faces onto a big woollen blanket. It has since expanded to include images from magazines and leaflets, I find in bins and on public transport. ‘Uninvited’ was the working title, until I changed it to ‘Mostly Uninvited’. Unless I tell you otherwise, take it that the portrait was part of some junk mail, pushed through my letterbox. I will always credit photographers, illustrators, designers and the faces, whenever possible. All of my work is numbered, this is 632. If you search this number in ‘Categories’, you can find out about the other faces.

    • Scouse is a type of lamb or beef stew. The word comes from lobscouse, a stew commonly eaten by sailors throughout Northern Europe, which became popular in seaports such as Liverpool. Scouse is strongly associated with Liverpool, where Charlotte Wiggins was born.

      • Hmm, this is interesting. Now I get the reference. I wonder what the ingredients were to make it something you couldn’t wait to eat? My grandmother used to make a beef stew like thing called hash from leftovers, different every time, but always peppery and we ate it up FAST.
