+ from 2-5pm Rachel Lois Clapham in collaboration with Antje Hildebrandt present READERS WANTED:

READERS WANTED to share an intimate (w)reading performance for two. This is a little game, a small exercise in trust and a live cursive encounter. You can decide how long it might take. Two minutes is good though. Bring a + 1 with you if you like.

Please come. I’ll be waiting.


Nb. I am waiting for you
You set off on from your home
Nb. I am waiting for you
You arrive
Nb. I am waiting for you
You find me
Nb. I am waiting for you
You take your shoes off and come inside
Nb. I am no longer waiting
We blindfold one another
I whisper to you
We might touch
We (w)read together
Then we look at what we have made
You leave me
You return home
Nb. I am still waiting for you

Artists concluding month long projects over the weekend include Pippa Koszerek’s INOPERATIVE MINUTES, whose documentation of the exhibition in shorthand will conclude with the publication of The Pigeon Wing glossary.

Marianne Holm Hansen will spend the weekend unfolding her installation FOR THE RECORD (A WRITTEN CONVERSATION) in response to the month’s events.

At 6pm there will be a NEARLY INVISIBLE MEAL, prepared by Magda Fabiancyk, followed by a programme of readings and performances. Julia Calver, Helen Kaplinsky/ Hammam Aldouri, Tamarin Norwood, and Press Free Press will conclude month long writing projects, alongside performances by Matt Dalby and James Davies.

As Tamarin writes of her own project:

This month Tamarin Norwood has been trying not to write things away. It hasn’t worked. Her writing has persistently generated words, not things.

At the close of WRITING/ EXHIBITION/ PUBLICATION Tamarin will discuss the impossibility of a written form that might leave its object unwritten, considering a spectrum of practices from observing, swallowing and drawing to self-apparent, self-effacing and obliterated writing.
