'Spire' - Pyramid Schemes

Activity: OtherPublic engagement, outreach and knowledge exchange - Festival/exhibition


Curated by Lawrence Lek and The White Review literary journal, 'Pyramid Schemes' project brought together a collection of texts concerned with real and imaginary buildings; I was among one of the sixty invited artists and writers to submit a 100-word piece for the exhibition, responding to the call-out to 'explore architectures of their own creation'.

From Lawrence Lek's site: 'For one night only, an immersive installation at The White Building in Hackney Wick will shape the collected texts into a panoramic cityscape [...] a fictional city. A limited edition of fold-out artists’ books will be produced to accompany the event'. A list of participants whose texts were used, and a selection of images from the night: Darran Anderson ▲ David Bainbridge ▲ Anna Blair ▲ Jorge Luis Borges ▲ Martin Byrne ▲ Jen Calleja ▲ Steven Chodoriwsky ▲ S.J.
