Lambeth Open
Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 October

I’m taking part in Lambeth Open Studios this weekend. I’ll be in situ from 10am to 6pm on both days, along with other artists at ASC studios in Brixton Village and beyond (36 venues and over 100 artists and crafts people in Lambeth).

My studio is 14b, 5th Avenue, Brixton Village Studios, Granville Arcade, Brixton SW9 8PS

This is how I’ve described myself for the event:

Tim Shore works with moving image, drawing (of sorts) and installation. He likes cardboard, packaging and model making but does very little of the latter. He collects sketchbooks and different notebooks and tends not to use them. He is attempting to draw again, but is nervous about working without a ruler and so he’s mainly drawing lines, grids, charts, and lines that cross over other lines. He worries about what his work should be about, likes history and is fascinated by the Luddite Uprising of 1812/13. It’s a long time ago, marginal, and he is aware that its legacy is troubled with misunderstanding, negativity and accusations of irrelevance. He recently did a short and very intensive hand weaving course and wonders how Luddites, weaving, lines and computers might all be bound together.

ASC PechaKucha Event

I took part in the Artist Studio Company’s second PetaKutcha event last week (Wednesday 14 March 2012) at Erlang House. Me and seven other ASC artists each talked about practice and projects in 6 minutes and 40 seconds, which is how long 20 slides, each displayed for 20 seconds, take to run through.

I attempted to explain my Luddite obsession by drawing on Kate Bush, Tony Harrison, Emily Bronte, and Erol Flynn (as Robin Hood) amongst other things.

It’s difficult to read through the entire first verse and chorus of Wuthering Heights in 20 seconds.

I’ll be in my studio, 5th Avenue, Brixton Village Market, next weekend for ASC’s (Artists’ Studio Company) open studios 11.

Brixton Village Open Studio dates are:
10, 11, 12  October 2011:
Thursday 10, 6-9pm
Friday 11, 4-9pm
Saturday 12, 2-7pm
