Things are steamrollering ahead with ‘The tent that Jon made‘, in promotional terms at least.
Following a showing of images from the book (and it’s prologue, Alan and the Animals – see above) the work also got accepted as a part of the 80-artist strong exhibition ‘Home from Home’. (for display, see right)
This exhibition was delivered by the Artists Book Collective and timed to coincide with Leeds International Artist’s Book Fair and shows an amazing array of talent and creativity. If you don’t believe me, why not read the reviews in The Guardian and The Culture Vultures.
What’s exciting for me is the chance to get involved – I attended the opening evening and snapped away; and again after I popped up to see the Book Fair itself. This has inspired me and, despite only shooting my photos on a camera-phone and it being my first attempt – I’ve decided to produce a ‘zine publication in response to the show. This format is not only perfect for the images but also the show’s link to the fair.
In addition I’ll be helping to provide some interest at the end of the show by arranging a reading cum performance of ‘the Tent that Jon made’ on Thursday’s late night opening. Hope to see you there.
Pics – moving and still – to follow!
