Please join us for a summer drink to celebrate the launch of Francesco Pedraglio’s A man in a room spray-painting a fly… (or at least trying to…).
The evening features a choreographed reading by the people that, practically or conceptually, made the book possible, including Paul Becker, Tania Perez Cordova, James Langdon, the Book Works team and Francesco himself.

A man in a room spray-painting a fly… (or at least trying to…) presents the possibility of a story within numerous other possible stories, each one marked by diversion, interruption and red herring. Concerned with the correlation between objects and writing, as well as the relationship between spoken word and written, this dark, absurd and often funny story, uses the corpse of narrative fiction as a character, whose repeated deaths generate the conditions for new starts, and differing scenarios.

SCENE ON A NAVIGABLE RIVER Live from Dedham Vale 9th - 15th July 2014

Broadcasts from:
Adam Chodzko & Gretchen Egolf Beth Collar Ben Judd Rory Macbeth Florence Peake | Paul Becker & Francesco Pedraglio | Way Through | Ian Whittlesea

Field Broadcast have commissioned eight artists to create new works for broadcast from Dedham Vale, location of many of Constable's paintings including The Hay Wain and Flatford Mill (Scene on a Navigable River).  Lying somewhere between the real and the imagined in the carefully conserved, chocolate box, ‘heritage landscape’ of Flatford Mill and the surrounding area, Scene from a Navigable River forms a fragmented topology of an iconic landscape, exploring both the physical setting and its representation.
