This grey man is part of today’s closing events at The Pigeon Wing.

3rd September – 3rd October 2010
Open Fri – Sun 12 – 5pm

WRITING/ EXHIBITION/ PUBLICATION and THE FESTIVAL OF NEARLY INVISIBLE PUBLISHING concludes with a weekend of public residencies and events.

Artists concluding their month long projects over the weekend are 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.

Sunday 3rd Oct:

From 2pm artists working and performing in the space include: Matt Dalby, who will use voice, recordings and objects to create
semi-improvised sound poetry in response to the exhibition and The Pigeon Wing space. Karen Di Franco, whose CONCRETE RADIO: SCORE FOR ONE & TWO offers “intercedence/interference using short wave recordings with two radios and two transmitters.”

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.

At 6pm there will be a NEARLY INVISIBLE EDIBLE INTERVENTION, 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.

At the close of WRITING/EXHIBITION/PUBLICATION Tamarin Norwood 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. As Norwood 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.
