A selection of the Empty Stages photographs I've been doing with Hugo Glendinning since 2003 are part of a group show during the spectacular Printemps de Septembre— à Toulouse. You can find the Empty Stages at Musée les Abattoirs, 76, allée, Charles-de-Fitte, 31300 Toulouse. 24 September – 17 October 2010. Opening times Monday to Friday, from 12 noon to 7 pm – Saturdays and Sundays from 11 am to 7 pm. Nocturnes: Friday 24 and Saturday 25 September, Friday 1 and Saturday 2 October, to 12.30 am.

In the same show my solo sound work Brief Reminder plays with the form and expectations of the kind of PA system announcements often heard in public spaces. I'm also a small part of very nice mini-exhibition of instructions-related artworks, curated by Charles Aubin and titled Walk Like An Egyptian.

Here’s more information about all of these, plus the many diverse aspects of Printemps de Septembre— à Toulouse.

Over the Table

22.09.2010 – 26.09.2010

Aichi Arts Center, Nagoya. Aichi Triennale.

Over the Table is a 5-day long collaborative project by Tim Etchells and Vlatka Horvat. Following their previous collaborations – the hour-long improvised videos Insults & Praises (2003) and Threats & Promises (2008), as well as the 5-week long 'faxing performance' To Bring Down a House (2006/2008) – Over the Table is conceived as a continuous process of call and response between the two artists. Conducted in a gallery space which they occupy together for the duration of the piece, Over the Table takes the form of a series of playful and competitive exchanges which unfold within a set of pre-arranged performative frames. Visitors may arrive, depart, and return at any point during gallery opening hours and will always encounter the artists engaged in one or another of their collaborative activities and tasks. The space of the gallery itself will change from day to day, as evidence of the artists' diverse activities gradually fills the space, accumulating alongside whatever is currently happening.
