Over the last few weeks I have had the privilege of working with the fantastic Pigeon Magazine, and for the next couple of weeks, will be displaying work alongside them at our show at Five Years Gallery.
Pigeon is the publishing body formed by Rebecca Field, Tamsin Devereux and Jake Evans. As practising artists in their own right, they crafted Pigeon as a curatorial platform, existing both in print and pixel, to cast a critical eye over the issues within the contemporary art world.
As part of their work for the Sites of Alternative Publishing exhibition, they are showing this delightful short video, which gives a snapshot of their collective practice.

Hurray! The cover is off and we can unveil to you our first event of the year. Annexe has been invited to be part of an exhibition exploring the various practices of independent and alternative publishers.
The exhibition is being curated by the magnificent Ladies of the Press* and, alongside ourselves, will include work from Very Small Kitchen and Pigeon Magazine.
Over the last month of so, we have been meeting to discuss our practices, create some collaborative texts and generally unravel just what it is that we’re all doing. Working with the Ladies of the Press* is always a dynamic experience and this has been no different. Our text-based norms have been taken to performative and art-based avenues that they weren’t so familiar with. But as with any journey, they have come out with a wealth of knowledge from the other side.
Over this week we shall be letting slip more about the show, but for now you can have a read of the press release for the show.
