Thursday 6th October | 6pm – 8pm
Join us for an evening of readings from Paul Hawkin’s book Place Waste Dissent and see the accompanying exhibition – including prints of collage, photography, and text – outside normal gallery hours.
Paul will be reading selected extracts from his book as well as screening the short film ‘Blight’. ‘Blight’ is a collaborative film by film maker John Smith and composer Jocelyn Pook.
‘A stunning montage depicts the destruction of a London street to make way for new roads. The rhythmic, emotive soundtrack is partly musical and partly a collage of the residents’ voices. Shots and sounds echo and cross-link in the film’s 14 minutes to reinvent a radical documentary tradition.’ – A.L. Rees ‘A History of Experimental Film and Video’ 1999, British Film Institute.
