4 x pairs of artists
the evening of events began with a video that i made in response to dylan&i’s visual/sound piece:
Gimmie a Pig Foot
it was screened over that very painting, and Am I Thingking What You’re Thingking?, illuminating it’s mimi spirits, it’s teeth, hannah, montana – video&painting playing with and becoming each other.
originally I had planned on showing a scratched-paint-pulled-stretched-burnt super8 film but my projector died the day before the opening and I did not want to use another. chance allowed me to create this new fresh video for Gimmie a Pig Foot and for that I am pleased.

after this film showing I supplied some Buddha Machine backdrone for my Viking friend SJ Fowler, for all this it is him I must thank. He read the poems which hung on the wall beside him,
jelly tot poems, squished.
and then champion Iain Sinclair, collaborater of Ragnhildur Jóhanns, read his poems of Icelandic ash and spoke of the Hardy Tree
the words are actually emerging like tongues out of the various books she chose
Marcus Slease and Ben Morris performed their acousmatic tin tin and blew us all away with bearded london thames dada preacher boy beauty ham
mudlarking! it’s a lark, it’s not a bark, it’s the passage of the aardvark.
then we went downstairs and spoke to the space machine
