Héloïse Bergman: The Dying Art

Héloïse Bergman: The Dying Art Guest Lecture + Private view March 28th 2017 ə /uh/-books  project space for material publishing 103 Borough Road London


The Dying art refers to two participatory photobookworks presented in a double installation.

‘Tā Moko - Modern Māori Warriors’, documents the revival of Māori facial tattooing in New Zealand, focusing on tā moko as a symbol of reclaimed cultural identity in the context of post colonial society. In the context of the Page-turner photobook publishing workshop with the V&A Academy and the School of Arts and Creative Industries Héloïse has produced a new two-volume photozine.

‘The Dying Art of Smoking’ is a photographic exploration of the visual language of smoking, in which Héloise observes the personal gestures that express a smoker's relationship to cigarettes and the viewer. This year marks the 10th anniversary of the ban on smoking in enclosed public spaces and work places in England. To mark this anniversary, Héloïse has produced a limited edition leporello book exploring the current smoking subculture.

Andreia Alves de Oliveira> River Boats & Inner Thoughts


Andreia Alves de Oliveira: River Boats & Inner Thoughts March 21st 2017   ə /uh/-books  project space for material publishing 103 Borough Road London

River Boats & Inner Thoughts is a calendiary of the boats navigating the Thames and  subjective, psychological states.  Issued daily in digital format using the online platform Facebook, it is a work about surveillance (of exterior life and of the self), about the river Thames and its current role in the city, about the relationship between outside and inside. Its scripto-visual form expands on traditional documentary strategies and proposes a comment on the use of social media. The work is published and exhibited in the Recto gallery as a series of (monthly) calendiaries + (free) prints provided daily for the duration of the exhibition. Verso gallery is transformed into a study room giving insight into the research or ‘backstory’ of the project

Andreia Alves de Oliveira  in conversation with mindfulness teacher Andy Paine, exploring the relationships between her work and the practice of mindfulness. Andy talk us through the allegory of Inner thoughts as River Boats and offer a brief experiential taster of meditative awareness practices. Thoughts in the mind are like boats on the river. Allowing them to float by freely enables inner calm and a greater degree of freedom in interacting with the outer world.
