Gee Vaucher’s ‘Introspective’ at FIRSTSITE. This will be the first major show of her work in the UK. Lots more news as the exhibition comes together and events arranged.
There’s a new set of typeset pieces on the website.
These are ten different handset typographic prints by Gee Vaucher, of Penny Rimbaud’s aphorisms. If you managed to get one of the last pieces, these are a must to add to your collection.
Mick Duffield’s ‘CHRIST-THE MOVIE’ available from 5th April
The films ‘Autopsy’, ‘Choosing Death’ and ‘Yes Sir I Will’(Crass), form the trilogy ‘Christ the Movie’, made in the punk rock era in response to the UK’s gloomy political and economic bankruptcy of the mid 1970’s and 80’s.
Like SemiDetached, the dvd is accompanied by a beautiful booklet.
If you haven’t taken a look at this short film by Mick Duffield from 1971,
give it a go. The end is an infectious laugh!
Gee Vaucher’s third book of seven in the series ‘A WEEK OF KNOTS’– Tuesday (Father) is now finished but due to flow of funds will have to wait at least another month.
The biggest of all the days with 44 illustrations, these books take their inspiration from Max Ernst ‘Une Semaine de Bonte’and ‘Knots’ by R.D.Laing. Full of collaged images, it continues to tell the story of ‘The Family’. If you are aiming to collect all seven in the series: ‘Sunday-The Family’ and ‘Monday -Mother’, are still available.
Penny Rimbaud is currently working on an electronics album, another version of KERNSCHMELZE 2 with Eve Libertine andCharles Webber due for release early
If you follow Penny on Twitter pennyrimbaud1 you may have been keeping up with his recent prolific outpourings of aphorisms, this time accompanied by some beautiful images. If you haven’t read the first 365+1 aphorisms from last year, here’s your chance to get a great little pocket book of words to provoke.
Penny Rimbaud is also busy with his ‘YES, SIR, I WILL’ rewrite, which was recorded live at the 2014 REBELLION FESTIVAL, Blackpool, with a six-piece jazz outfit, plus himself and Eve Libertine. The cover is finished, the music is finished, now we just need a release date.
In the meantime Penny Rimbaud has had to get a job. See him at work in London: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=amt_jPV7oI8
