AA Gallery 15/1/2011 - 9/2/2011 Monday to Friday 10.00-7.00, Saturday 10.00-3.00

Curators Charles Arséne-Henry and Shumon Basar

Publication and Launch Event

Thursday 10 February, 6.00-8.00
An accompanying paperback, published by Bedford Press and designed by Z.A.K., will include all the stories as well as essays by the curators. It will be launched during an event that speculates about the future(s) of writing, reading, listening and fiction.

You've entered the room. It looks empty, silent. Vinyl text on the wall, like an album track-listing. Writers' names instead of bands.
You've been given a black pamphlet and an electronic device connected to a pair of headphones.
You'll put them on. Pick a number. Press play. You look for the same number on the walls. You find it. Next to it, an image. Beside it there is a seat. You sit. On a beat-up office chair dredged from a river. You listen. And you start travelling. You're on Atlantic Avenue, between Nevins and Third. It's Brooklyn. 1971.
The voice stops. You go for another track, another chair, a different place. Now on a little stool, you follow a six-year-old girl's voice in your ears. You're lost in the Sheraton Hotel. An Aztec spaceship in Doha's desert.
It will last for 11 tracks. Through Tripoli, Brixton, Ramallah. Sofia, The Metaverse. Ardennes forest. A garden.
Until West Vancouver. Where the world is ending.
