7.30pm reFMRL 2: Footnotes, Mirages, Refrains and Leftovers of Writing Sound

With Christian Patracchini, Daniela Cascella, Eleanor Vonne Brown, Georgia Rodger, Helena Hunter, Jess Chandler, Mark Peter Wright.

F.M.R.L. is Daniela Cascellas new book (Zer0 Books, 2015) constructed across sonic patterns, assonance, repetitions, comprising texts that intermittently drift from sense to sound and to nonsense and back. Listening into writing, reading into writing take shape in F.M.R.L. through a collection of short texts, fragments and deranged essays, with attention to pacing and linguistic derives. A flip from the immateriality of sound to the sounds of letters and words as material, a call from reading to voicing.

For this event Daniela has asked artists, writers, performers, musicians to remix, rewrite, re-read her book: to use the book as raw material and to present a series of short responses in any form or medium.

This is the second in the reF.M.R.L. series, that challenges the conventional format of the book launch to work instead with the book as material presence, and to enhance the polyphonies that inhabit and form F.M.R.L.



about Mahu 

A solo exhibition by SJ Fowler

A novel onto gallery walls. A novel written without prelude or revision. A novel written in black ink on white walls. A novel in words that veers into neologisms. A novel in language that veers into abstract symbols. An asemic novel. A novel of twenty-one days, before it is stripped, chopped, framed, never to be reunited again.

Hardy Tree Gallery is a London based art gallery.  The gallery promotes the work of emerging visual artists, photographers and performance artists.  Co-founders Cameron Maxwell and Amalie Russell, aim to create a space which pushes boundaries and gives artists the freedom to bring their visions to life.

Hardy Tree Gallery is located next to St. Pancras station. The name Hardy Tree comes from a tree in the St. Pancras churchyard. Before turning to writing full time, Thomas Hardy worked as an architect apprentice and in the 1860’s was commissioned to dismantle tombs in the churchyard to allow the new St. Pancras train tracks to pass through. Rather than discard the many gravestones, Hardy placed them around a tree.

The tree, which has grown amongst the gravestones, represents growth, memories and the history of the area.
