Peter Saville and Anna Blessman - In Course of Arrangement

Peter Saville continues his collaborations with Anna Blessman with a new series of works which playfully subvert normal ideas about what constitutes a work of art. Small signs with legends such as "This exhibit has been temporarily removed and will be returned as soon as possible" and "Object removed for photography" become the artworks themselves.

Saville and Blessman's Art Accessories (along with some Saville solo work) will be exhibited in the upcoming Art 14 show at the Olympia Grand Hall in London from 28 February until 2 March 2014.

Biting Tongues

In the grey days of late 1970s post-punk Manchester, youth culture was a serious affair: every musical performance was measured mostly by the conviction of its delivery. The term 'New Wave' opened up free vistas where acquired skills could once again be exercised after punk's monochrome blur. It could be applied to anything from a James 'Blood' Ulmer record to the latest Throbbing Gristle release, Magazine to Swell Maps. Move outside that terrain into Sun Ra, Parliament, Frank Sinatra and Martin Denny, and your options were suddenly without limit...

Then came Tony Wilson's Factory Club (at the Russell Club in Hulme) offering an open invitation to experiment that was taken up when Ken Hollings, Howard Walmsley, Eddie Sherwood and a few others decided to make some noise to accompany their 16mm silent epic Biting Tongues. A further performance followed a few weeks later, when Colin Seddon and Graham Massey disbanded their Post Natals project and joined up. The film itself, a flashing series of negative images, became a memory; the name remained.
