After a mad few weeks putting together Interrobang, we’re blasting back into action with the online side of Annexe. As we haven’t had a meanwhile in some time, here’s one for you. A list of what’s going on in literature both in cyberspace (how delightfully 90’s) and IRL.
We’ve got poems created by search engines, book vending machines, beautifully scented poetry, and some love poems that just stink! Continue reading
BREAKING NEWS! We’ve got a surprise addition to the Interrobang line-up!
Welcome to *! (Dingbang)! The Magic Moments Photobooth @ !? (Interrobang) festival
The Ladies of the Press* invite you to step up to the wonder that is “*! (read: Dingbang)”‘, a “human photobooth” and, erm, fantastical mincing machine where sparkly cardboard box meets DTP press, conjuring one-off prints from images you feed it. Imagine a Surrealist photobooth that has a mind of its own; have your photo taken by a suspicious looking assistant, show the booth some love and attention et voilà! some photos will come out…but we won’t guarantee it will be exactly what you think!
Following its debut at the ICA in October, we’re pleased to present a special appearance of our Magic Moments Photobooth at Interrobang festival.

Our exhibition with Pigeon, Very Small Kitchen and Ladies of the Press* opened last Friday to a massive crowd. We couldn’t have hoped for a better turn-out.
A huge thanks to everyone who came along, and if you haven’t seen it yet, you’ve still got until March 4th. We’re also having an evening of talks on the nature of alternative and independent publishing on the 3rd at X Marks the Bökship.
And now, a few snaps from opening night:

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.
