Coolitudes!

Danny Flynn runs the gallery at 511 Seven Sisters Road. He is a freelance artist and designer who has received awards in the area of printing, sculpting and artists’ bookworks. He is also a visiting lecturer at CASS, London Metropolitan University. His research on printing and street art is published internationally.

Khal Torabully has published some 20 books, among which the pioneering Cale d’étoiles-Coolitude, the first world literature text of the coolie voyage. For some 25 years, he has expanded knowledge about indenture, both poetically and theoretically through the paradigm of coolitude, an aesthetics of diversity now studied around the world.

The COOL!TUDE enlargements of the original photographs depicting Indian migrants who were entering Mauritius in the early 1800s were taken from Marina Carter’s research on immigration registers.

In conjunction with ‘Becoming Coolies’, an AHRC-funded project at the Universities of Edinburgh and Leeds.

A War of Pieces

Eri Funazaki and Danny Flynn exhibited some of the pages of their new letterpress and screen-printed fine bound bookwork, 'A War of Pieces' - an alphabetical list of made up collective nouns in an annoyance of cinquain stanzas.

Featuring a bail of bankers; a lot of winners; a roll of petrodollars; a slice of surgeons; a utility of mediocrities; a whisper of undertakers; a yell of liberators; and a zilch of robots.

A Working Weekend of Prints & Presentations
blöd = silly & dumm = dumb

A few years ago I made a series of A0 Screen Prints with Michael Schoenke at the Bethanien Workshop in Berlin. The blöd = dumm prints where made for two main reasons; to explore further the 3 colour printing process method I'd been developing and to try and redress through making my constant feeling of inadequacy in attempting to learn German. – Eddie Farrell.

The Six Fingers of Fate Present - The A to Z of Fate

Starting from randomly chosen points within an A to Z, each member of the Fingers wound their way through the streets of London to the pre-destined location of G511ERY, N15. The result is eight stories of chance encounters and city life.

 
The Six Fingers of Fate is a collective of creative professionals who experiment with how stories can be told. Each project contains an element of chance, from which the Fingers must draw inspiration.

Book - Object - Art

Phil Cleaver

Phil Cleaver brings forth his collection of folded books; humorous, dark, underhand and provocative–these sculptures are an expressive projection of a personality–formed in the labyrinthine city of London, under the influence of (among other things) the punk, the Far East and some of the design industries most prominent and influential leaders.

This exhibition traces the importance of the book as a tool for communication, and as a work of craft within itself – an object of beauty. The premise of the exhibition was to highlight and capture memory and nostalgia. Themes political misdemeanour, religious conflict and social superfluity are dominant. The artist uses the book as a canvas to highlight and ridicule the human condition – The need for control, power, and ultimately a higher or more profound ‘truth’ than their neighbour. The books have been folded along their grid systems in a manner that renders them illegible, this does not destroy the volume of information that can be read from it. Instead the information merely transfigures. The pages take on the shapes of mountains and waves, the conceptualized movement of time and space, or the movement of consciousness from body through the use of meditative practise.

The books are stories, maps, histories, fantasies and altars for satirical worship. Each book has been transformed from a tool into a relic – something sacred to the self of the artist and to the artist’s own personal doctrine, and utterly sacrilegious to that which he opposes.
