'Ink Between the Sheets'
An art-house evening of Cocktails, Cinema and Books
Doors open 7pm
Workshop: 7.30pm till 9.30pm
Screening: 9:30 till Midnight (with interval)
"A lavish, sensual and endlessly fascinating film that almost fetishes fetishism, this is provocative in every sense." Film4
"Expect a rich and artistic melding of dark modern drama with idealised Chinese and Japanese cultural themes and settings, centering on body painting" Rotten Tomatoes
As ever, due to the restrictions of our cinema license, we can't reveal the film in question outright online but follow us on twitter for more clues to the film!
This indulgent evening includes:
1. Literary Refreshments!
We'll be reclining in a curated selection of contextually tantalising literary cocktails, expertly served by visual artist come mixologist Sebastian H-W. Alternatively check in with our librarian-usher Chloe Spicer for the mocktails, soft drinks and thematic cinema snacks. Best of all - it's free drinks and snacks all night!
2. Book Art Workshop!
In “Ink Between the Sheets” Kate invites you to create a book from two pillows or cushions, brought with you or provided during the workshop, stitched with your dreams, printed with catalogues of delightful things, scrawled with your musings. When you are finished creating, rest your head on your pillow talk and take in the sensuous sights and sounds of our book flick screening. No previous skill neccersary!
All materials provided, but feel free to bring two pillows or cushions of matching size with two pillow/cushion cases which fit them for the cover of your book.
3. The FILM! "Greenaway is a dedicated aesthete and sensualist who creates his own little worlds of cruelty, delight and artistic trickery. With tremendous brio and skill, he cuts his patterns into our minds, tickling our skins with his brush." Michael Wilmington - Chicago Tribune
4. And more!
Artistic interventions and laid back creative pillow talk. See you there?

That seems a bit steep! What does my ticket price include?

ABOUT OBJECT BOOK
Object Book is an alternative book arts studio and performance writing space, previously in residency at Merton Abbey Mills, run by artist Chloe Spicer with support from The Wandle Studio Prize. Stay tuned for news of pop ups planned in Walthamstow, London and as we head up North to Liverpool in 2017!
This screening is one of many bookish workshops, screenings and events run by Object Book and associated artists across London.
About the Artists:
Chloe is a bookish artist and library curator interested in a future multi sensory accessibility for the book. Former works involve running Library Raves, edible workshops and bookish performance/live art events. Her life ambition is to become a book.
Sebastian H-W (MX:UK) is a live artist whose work explores identity, memory, technology and the body, through expanded and experimental approaches to live performances, audience experiences and action-based interventions.
Kate Rolison is a poet, and she stitches her poems together. Her practice is and always will be underpinned by the written word; by well-spun yarns and beautiful etymologies, by dreadful puns and linguistic philosophy. Kate makes artist’s books from scraps and snippets of text, from leftover fabric, from literary material and fibrous material.
We regret to inform that in this instance the secret location is on the top floor of a building without a lift or mechanised assistance to access. We hope to be back to our fully-accessible selves in 2017, but in the meantime please let us know if you require any further assistance to participate in this event.
