Rowse Close, London
In “Ink Between the Sheets”, artist Kate invites you to create a book from two pillows or cushions, brought with you or provided during the workshop, stitched with your dreams, printed with catalogues of delightful things, scrawled with your musings.
When you are finished creating, rest your head on your pillow, talk and take in the sensuous sights and sounds of this book flick screening. No previous experience necessary!
You'll then watch a feature film."A lavish, sensual and endlessly fascinating film that almost fetishes fetishism, this is provocative in every sense." Film4
Due to the restrictions of the host's cinema license, the film in question cannot be revealed.
This indulgent evening includes:
Recline in a curated selection of contextually tantalising literary cocktails, expertly served by visual artist come mixologist Sebastian H-W. Alternatively, check in with librarian-usher Chloe Spicer for the mocktails, soft drinks and thematic cinema snacks.
Best of all - it's free drinks and snacks all night!
All materials will be provided, but feel free to bring two pillows or cushions of matching size with two pillow/cushion cases which fit them for the cover of your book.
ABOUT OBJECT BOOK
Object Book is an alternative bookish arts studio and performance writing space, run by artist Chloe Spicer with support from The Wandle Studio Prize. This screening is one of many bookish workshops, screenings and events run by Object Book and associated artists across London.
About the Artists:
Chloe is a bookish artist and library curator interested in a future multi sensory accessibility for the book. Former works involve running Library Raves, edible workshops and bookish performance/live art events. Her life ambition is to become a book.
Sebastian H-W (MX:UK) is a live artist whose work explores identity, memory, technology and the body, through expanded and experimental approaches to live performances, audience experiences and action-based interventions.
Kate Rolison is a poet, and she stitches her poems together. Her practice is and always will be underpinned by the written word; by well-spun yarns and beautiful etymologies, by dreadful puns and linguistic philosophy. Kate makes artist’s books from scraps and snippets of text, from leftover fabric, from literary material and fibrous material.
Regrettably, in this instance the secret location is on the top floor of a building, without a lift or mechanised assistance to access. Please let the host know if you require any further assistance to participate in this event.
