It's been four long years since Simon & Garfunkel's final tour but this disturbing robotic simulacrum should give comfort for those hankering for the octogenarian folk-rock duo's soothing melodies. I'm excited to announce a new exhibition of sound and mechanical automation at Antenna in April. The private view is on Saturday the 16th of April, from 6-9pm. Opening Hours Friday/Saturday 4-7 pm, Sunday 2-5pm.

I've created a sound installation of automated chimes, video and PAR lighting for the launch event of Mark Wagner's 12" S☉n Rise / S☉n Of The Sun organised by 33-33 is taking place at MKII in Clapton on February the 12th. It will feature a ceremonial live show produced in collaboration with the artists; Kat Hanula, Ross Adams and Agathe Max. As well as ritual performances by The Seer (Conny Prantera) and Blanc Sceol (Stephen Shiell & Hannah White).

Story Teller

I have a third Storyteller cassette coming out soon on Adaadat, 'Field of Upturned Sheep' is an incredible occult thriller of rural depravity, an electro-acoustic spoken word cassette collaboration between myself writer & occasional filmmaker Bruce McClure. The illustrations were again provided by Chris Wright of Turbo Island.

Pictured above is a serialised dystopian short story by Storyteller called 'Gates of London', taking the form of a series of framed reproduction cigarette cards prints. Shown seperately, with each pair situated adjacent too a particular threshold, they are going to be featured in a group show at Gallery 46 called Can We Ever Know the meaning of These Objects?. The exhibition will run from July 8th til the 22nd, also including work by the following artists; Associated Clay Workers Union (Helen Carr, Sarah Christie, Duncan Hooson and Annette Welch, Diane Eagles, Alison Cooke, Danuta Solowiej, Stephanie Buttle, Jo Pearl, Raewyn Harrison, Jane Millar), Eleanor Bowen, Sean Dower, Field Notes, Bruce Gilchrist, Caroline Gregory, Luke Jordan, Miyuki Kasahara, Yev Kazannik, Marq Kearey, Calum F Kerr, Lisa McKendrick, Pol Mclernon, Sean McLusky, Kevin Quigley, Victoria Rance, James Roseveare, Martin Sexton, Sarah Sparkes, Ian Thompson, Inga Tillere, Marianne Walker, Phill Wilson-Perkin and Mary Yacoob.

I've created a sound & video installation called 'Melting Potentiometers'. It's a plunderphonic mashup of all of the flags of the world combined with all of it's national anthems, that will be featured as part of a live-art event called Mystery Cult #5 taking place at Hoxton Gallery on December 5th. The event will include a performance involving; Lisa McKendrick, Calum F Kerr, Warren Conlon, Tim Drage and Kevin Quigley. as well as live harp from Jemima Phillips.

'Director's Commentary' is a 20 minute cinéma vérité techno deconstruction of Bruce McClures feature film ' District Nurse', that I created for Liminality (Start Dreaming) at Gallery 46, originally broadcast on July 16th.

In 1994 the Scottish artist Ross Sinclair had the words 'Real Life' tattooed across his back. The tattoo went on to feature prominently, and define much of his work produced over the subsequent decades. My new installation also called 'Real Life' was broadcast live from Gallery 46 as part of a series of live transmissions called Liminality - Start Dreaming on June the 11th. It featured a simulacrum of Ross Sinclair, currently living its realest life in the gardens behind the gallery, unperturbed by the lockdown because unlike the 'Real' Ross Sinclair this version doesn't have mucus membranes or respiratory tract and is therefore completely unaffected by Covid 19.

I have just completed a new Storyteller video piece with Bruce McClure. Produced during the lockdown 'Containment' is a topical tale chronicling the hazards of 5G signals and familial murder torture via the medium of a ventriloquised aspidistra plant. It was broadcast live first at Gallery 46 on May 7th as part of a series of live transmissions called Liminality - Start Dreaming.
