Event description
Artist Kelly Lloyd is currently undertaking a research residency at Flat Time House focusing on John Latham’s collection of books.

About this event

Latham’s library, which includes books intended for the making of artwork as well as for research purposes, has never been catalogued or the subject of sustained investigation. Since March 2021 Lloyd has explored the library with particular interest in Latham's personal books vs. books for work, marginalia and other physical interventions.

Kelly Lloyd will present her research on Saturday, 18 September 2021 at 3pm. Specifically, she will present a speculative library (2006-2021), and read excerpts from a small publication containing thoughts on personal book collections as portraits and the place of books in the archiving and preservation of artist homes and studios, as well as reflections on conversations with Flat Time House Director/Curator Gareth Bell-Jones, Noa Latham, son of John Latham and Barbara Steveni and Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Calgary and Lisa Stone, Curator of the Roger Brown Study Collection from 1996–2020.

Organiser Flat Time House

Organiser of Kelly Lloyd

Flat Time House (FTHo) was the studio home of John Latham (1921-2006), recognised as one of the most significant and influential British post-war artists. In 2003, Latham declared the house a living sculpture, naming it FTHo after his theory of time, ‘Flat Time’. Until his death, John Latham opened his door to anyone interested in thinking about art. It is in this spirit that Flat Time House opened in 2008 as a gallery with a programme of exhibitions and events exploring the artist's practice, his theoretical ideas and their continued relevance. It also provides a centre for alternative learning, which includes the John Latham archive, and an artist's residency space.
