SOMEONE ELSE CAN CLEAN UP THIS MESS
8 March–30 March 2014 weekends 4–6pm
This series of events at Flat Time House is part of a research project with Electra into the work of the women active in 60s and 70s London. Rather than a direct historical enquiry, each weekend event explores collaborative relationships between artists of this and younger generations, through performance and discussion. Places for all events are limited and must be booked in advance.
Someone else can clean up this mess: JENNIFER PIKE COBBING & HOLLY ANTRUM
8 March 2014 4–6pm
FULLY BOOKED Catalogue (2013) is the outcome of a collaboration between Holly Antrum and Jennifer Pike Cobbing. Aimed at being a film ‘with’ rather than ‘about’, Antrum invited Jennifer Pike to present herself and her work. This event will include a screening of Catalogue and a presentation by the artists. The event will be followed by drinks and a shared meal.
NOIT – 1
Launched 23 November 2013
NOIT is a creative journal published by Flat Time House Institute (FTHo) and Camberwell Press. Comprising new writing and visual contributions with each issue edited by a guest editor, NOIT explores the theoretical concerns and art work of John Latham, and their continued relevance. The title NOIT is a term Latham created by reversing the suffix ‘-tion’ which converts verbs into abstract nouns to challenge the process of turning events and actions into things. It is the sign of an activity that ‘defies its own definition by denying the validity of any given definition’.
Someone else can clean up this mess: BARBARA STEVENI & JAKOB JAKOBSEN
15 March 2014 4-6pm
This performative exchange between the two artists takes as it's starting point Steveni's home during the 1960s and 1970s; 22 Portland Road in Notting Hill. Drawing on Steveni's development as a dancer and artist in relation to her material life during those years, the conversation starts as a filmed exchange between the two artists outside 22 Portland Road, discussing the experiences that that house was witness to; making food, hanging out, socialising, making art, bringing up children.
Flat Time House (FTHo) was the studio home of John Latham (1921-2006), recognised as one of the most significant and influential British post-war artists. In 2003, Latham declared the house a living sculpture, naming it FTHo after his theory of time, ‘Flat Time’. Until his death, John Latham opened his door to anyone interested in thinking about art. It is in this spirit that Flat Time House opened in 2008 as a gallery with a programme of exhibitions and events exploring the artist's practice, his theoretical ideas and their continued relevance. It also provides a centre for alternative learning, which includes the John Latham archive, and an artist's residency space.
