We haven’t blogged since mid July because the studio has been closed for part of the summer in order to actually do some travel and also to hole up there and just work. But we have got things up and running again ow with some exciting new things. Firstly Andrea is continuing the monthly Flat Screens series of screenings, with “SECRET” – i.e. as-yet-unreleased – films and really exciting discussions.

October sees Photomonth, the East London Festival of Photography where our exhibition River(s) will launch two books (Tevere by Catia Ott and Tarkovsky’s River by Gillian McIver), alongside photography and film screenings. After that, Nazir Tanbouli and Valentin Manz will show books and book-related things.

In mid-November Nazir will have a mammoth solo show till Christmas rotating different artworks, open studio sessions and screenings of his animations and a little shop where you can buy or commission some of his work as multiples as well as buy originals.

It’s really exciting and exhausting.

People are saying these days that London is finished, clapped out. I’m not sure yet that’s true. The signs are there: violence and greed and prices rising, opportunities contracting. But we have the studio, we’re making things happen, we’ll ride the weave as long as we can and then – we’ll see.
