Bruno Pelassy by Marie Canet
Bruno Pelassy produced a funny, incisive and baroque body of work, including a manifesto film, Sans titre, sang titre, cent titres, which Marie Canet uses to highlight connections between Pelassy's work and the AIDS virus that took his life in 2002.
The Shift Sticker
Take a little piece of Flat Time House home with you! For The Shift exhibition, Antony Hudek has created stickers of the phrase 'the shift' replicated exactly as it appears on the walls throughout Flat Time House. Their presence refers to the shift in perception from rational to intuitive thought as well as the paradigm shift that would be required for the establishment to take on board the new cosmology presented by Latham’s theory of ‘Flat Time’.
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, 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.
