Launch of Aesthetic Indifference by Lisa Penny
Saturday 5 March 2016, 6.30 – 8.30pm
Performance at 7.30pm

Lisa Penny’s book ‘Aesthetic Indifference’ has developed out of a performance she presented during a residency at Eastside International in LA in 2015. It will be launched alongside a performance of the text at X Marks the Bökship on Saturday 5 March 2016.

Penny worked through the novel ‘Less Than Zero’ by Bret Easton Ellis to explore though interpretive reading, the social symbolism and culture poetics of clothing.

The reduced text is published with visual references, from personal photographs and found material, playing with the idea of clothing as a form of communication.

The text will be read by Carl Taylor Lewis, an actor based in London.

The cocktail Tequila Sunrise will be served.
