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
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 Every year from 2014 to 2114, a writer will be commissioned to contribute a new text to a growing collection of unpublished, unread manuscripts held in trust in a specially designed room in the new Deichmanske Public Library in Bjørvika until their publication in 2114.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.

A choral piece, written by Liversidge for a choir of 30 adults, will be performed at sunset (23:56) on the opening night at the harbour across from the gallery.
