The Pigeon Wing – Saturday September 25th 1.30-4.30

Tomorrow’s installment of WRITING/ EXHIBITION/ PUBLICATION will be an afternoon of performances, discussions and installations. As part of the event I’m contributing to the LemonMelon Publishing Seminar with a presentation about the print editions of Homologue – more details below.

1.30pm How To Blush – performance lecture by seekers of lice

”The talk as an installation space: How to blush is a collaged text circling around blushing via the life of the bedbug, the colour puce, visceral reactions, earlobes, Sappho…”

2.00-3.30pm LemonMelon Publishing Seminar

LemonMelon extends the following invitation: Please join!!! LemonMelon would like to discuss the following with you:

a book as strategy
a book as a living organism
a book as a platform for research
a book as an exhibition space
a book as a place of collaboration
a book as nearly invisible publishing
a book as structure

Specifically invited contributors are asked to present their publications and to respond to the above.

Contributers include: seekers of lice, Phil Baber/ Cannon, David Berridge/ VerySmallKitchen, James Davies/ If P Then Q, Tamarin Norwoood/ Homologue, Marit Muenzberg/ LemonMelon.

3.30-4.30pm Janine Harrington, Performing Book Experiment No.2

“Performing Book Experiment No.2 is a structure for five or more dancers. The work aims to facilitate a playful interaction between the audience-reader and the performers. The structure is only activated when an audience member enters a “channel” of the space, their movement programs the danced material in a certain way. As the activator becomes aware of their role as co-author of the work they are able to play with the structure, changing the direction of movement, its relationship to time and scale.”

ALSO THIS WEEKEND:

The 25th will be the conclusion of Phil Baber’s The Archaeology of an Essay installation, the result of a 3 day residency at WRITING/EXHIBITION/PUBLICATION:

“Through artifacts, images, and texts, I’ll be unpacking, plotting, and presenting the ‘source-code’ of an essay-in-progress.”

The Festival of Nearly Invisible Publishing also continues to unfold with Greetings from DEAL – an installation by Colin Priest, Malcolm Hobbs and Joe Reeves – plus the online launch of LIKE IT IS: PRELUDE, an e-book by Nyeema Morgan, and an announcement of five Titles by Raqs Media Collective.

WRITING/EXHIBITION/PUBLICATION concludes with a final weekend of performances and events  on October 2-3. See full programme of events here.
