Towser Zine Archive at Uncanny Valley
Hebden Bridge Arts Festival 2013
24th – 26th June

My artists’ book, Corpus, has been selected for inclusion in the Towser Zine Archive, curated by Alice Bradshaw and Vanessa Haley. The Archive features in Uncanny Valley at the Hebden Bridge Arts Festival 2013. The Archive was first exhibited at last year’s Holmfirth Arts Festival (2012) when artists were asked to respond to the Luddite Bicentenary theme of that year’s festival.

Uncanny Valley is an animation festival organised by Magpie Cinema. It makes an exciting connection between artists’ books, zines and animation via the shared legacy of print culture which includes, comic strip, illustration technique (like collage, montage and bricolage) and the sequential mechanical imagery of the Zoetrope.

Corpus is a hand-made artists’ book that commemorates the 17 West Yorkshire Luddites executed at York Castle in January 1813 at the height of the Luddite Uprising of 1812/1813.

Corpus, 26 page concertina fold (198 x 90 mm), white cartridge paper, cardboard sleeve, acetone transfer text.
