Wednesday 30 July
7.00 – 10.00pm
Performance at 7.30pm in the Artists' Studio
Join us for a drink to celebrate the launch of Francesco Pedraglio’s A man in a room spray-painting a fly… (or at least trying to…), published by Book Works. The evening features a choreographed reading by the people that, practically or conceptually, made the book possible, including Paul Becker, Tania Perez Cordova, James Langdon, the Book Works team and Francesco himself.
Moving between and alluding to the different conditions of writing – whether film scripts, drama, letter writing, or mere notes for future projects – this is the first ‘novel’ by Francesco Pedraglio, presenting the possibility of a story within numerous other possible stories, and exploring the fault lines of communication between the text and the spoken performance.
Francesco Pedraglio is an artist and writer. He was one of the founding directors of FormContent, a fellow of Henry Moore Institute, and recently the editor of Time Machine, a series of experimental books published by Book Works.
Published by Book Works in an edition of 1,000. The book will be sold for the special launch price of £10 on the night.
