I have been working on the e-mailout blurb for the U.F.O discussion and video screening in the Project Space next Wednesday. Predictably, because I am doing the talk myself, alongside Nicola Naismith, I’ve left it rather late for a mailout, so there’s not much warning about this talk. Usually recently, we have been sending out a monthly e-bulletin of events to cut down on number of messages sent out to people (a flurry of messages can be a bit irritating). Not this month. So, here is the text – I pretty much lifted it from what I placed on the website, but used a nasty, almost fluorescent green in places that probably won’t come out in this post:
Wednesday 21st November 7pm
‘TOURING TERRITORIES U.F.O ARCHIVE PROJECT’
VIDEO SCREENING, DISCUSSION & BOOK LAUNCH with NICOLA NAISMITH & DOMINIQUE REY
In 2011 Naismith and Rey developed ‘Touring Territories’, a collaborative project for the Space Exchange exhibition at Aid and Abet. The project generated intriguing U.F.O-related imagery in the form of photographs, film and text within an interesting collaborative process.
Dave Evans (The Royal Standard, Liverpool) tasked the pair to explore U.F.O sightings in the eastern region. Acting as jobbing researchers, Naismith & Rey travelled to areas of potential sightings through the region, seeking information through field trips, interviews and explorations.
There will be a video screening of 4 short works by Erica Eyres, Paul Graham, Naismith and Rey.
This evening event marks the launch of the Touring Territories U.F.O Archive book.
DONATION / PAYBAR Proceeds go towards enhancing the Project Space’s facilities

Nicola Naismith and Dominique Rey are both founder members of the artists’ collective Satellite, launched in March 2007 as a roaming critical dialogue group. The group meets to critically discuss creative practice, professional development and create opportunities for developing projects and exhibitions. The collective has no permanent physical space and moves around East Anglia for events, studio and exhibition visits.
“We don’t have our own physical space but we have a cultural landscape”.
