Katie Paterson – Meteorite Space Launch

On July 29 (UTC), with the help of the European Space Agency, Katie Paterson will send a meteorite back into space.

Six Campo del Cielo meteorites of different weights are currently on display at Ingleby Gallery as part of Katie Paterson’s solo exhibition Ideas. Each formed in space over four and a half billion years ago. Paterson has made the meteorites new, transforming every atom by melting and recasting each one into an altered version of itself; everything is different, and yet apparently nothing is changed. In a bizarre twist of the natural order of things a seventh, the smallest of these, will be travelling back to space, via the European Space Agency.

The launch will take place 30 July at 12.40 am British Summer Time and the artwork is expected to dock at International Space Station 12 August 2014.

This event will be streamed live online.  To watch, visit



David Austen- Timothy Taylor Gallery

Slow Learner
Timothy Taylor Gallery, London
1 – 23 August

Slow Learner, a group exhibition curated by Andreas Leventis, brings together a selection of artists who variously employ text, signs, symbols, and photographic images across a range of media to examine the gap between reading and comprehension.

This presentation features Black Stars (2007) by David Austen as one such artist whose work utilises visual language to playfully subvert, withhold, or disavow meaning altogether.

Peter Liversidge – Gin and Sausages

Peter Liversidge
Gin and Sausages
10 July 2014 6:30 pm – 9.30 pm
Drawing Room, London

Peter Liversidge  will perform his infamous ‘Gin Proposal’ at the Drawing Room. From his makeshift gin stand the artist will be mixing Sipsmiths G & T’s in limited edition hand etched ‘GIN’ glasses. Participants can sample sausages made to Hubert Liversidge’s (Peter’s grandfather) and select music tracks from Peter’s ‘drinking songs’ jukebox. This performance event lasts the duration of the gin supply; once the bottles and glasses are empty, the performance is over.

All proceeds from the evening will raise funds for the continued development of Drawing Room’s Outset Study.

Katie Paterson- Future Library

Katie Paterson
Future Library
Commissioned by Bjorvika Utvikling and produced by Situations

Situations announces a new public artwork by Katie Paterson, which will unfold over the next 100 years in the city of Oslo, Norway. A thousand trees have been planted in Normarka, a forest just outside Oslo. It will be 100 years before the trees are cut down to provide the paper for an anthology of books – a Future Library for the city of Oslo – read for the first time in 2114.

As Katie Paterson prepares the forest, she is selecting authors along with an editorial panel including the Booker Prize’s Ion Trewin and former Director of Oslo City Library Liv Sæteren. Every year from 2014 to 2114, a writer will be commissioned to contribute a new text to a growing collection of unpublished, unread manuscripts held in trust in a specially designed room in the new Deichmanske Public Library in Bjørvika until their publication in 2114.

Katie Paterson has created a limited edition artwork – a certificate that entitles the owner to one complete set of the texts printed on the paper made from the trees after they are fully grown and cut down in 2114. It will be on view at Ingleby Gallery as part of Paterson’s first solo exhibition in Scotland alongside daily performances of her moon-­altered sonata Earth-­‐Moon-­‐Earth at Jupiter Artland as part of this year’s Edinburgh Art Festival (31 July – 31 August 2014) and GENERATION, a celebration of the best contemporary art in Scotland over the last 25 years.

The first writer to contribute a text for Future Library will be announced in September 2014.
