A song about Irene Warehouse, a community arts space in Pitt Street, Brunswick, Melbourne (Aus.). I first visited Irene in order to go to Barricade Books, an anarchist bookshop which had moved there from Sydney Road Brunswick, and also attended a lo-fi singer-songwriter performance there. The 'artistry' mentioned in the song is a reference to paste-up art by Melbourne's Baby Guerrilla, whose work adorns many walls in public space in Brunswick, Footscray and other western suburbs of Melbourne. As I wrote this song I revisited Irene to see how it felt a few years since I was last there, and I was delighted to see this artwork, which has inspired me in the last year or so as I have seen it around the inner suburbs. The song incorporates some of Baby Guerrilla's description of her work, with her enthusiastic support. Irene Warehouse © 2015 Christina Green, and photo in the circus space © 2016 Christina Green.
