Arriving at Crate Studio and Project Space, Margate, on Friday 21, 11 am. The Crate building previously housed Clarke & Knapp Print Works company that still bears its name on the facade. The original typeface of Clarke & Knapp Print Works company is later borrowed for Desmond Church's "unsettling sentence".
The great difficulty to borrow a brass bell from the local pubs comes as a surprise when we find out that those pub bells come from the boats. The Lifeboat brass bell sounds in the Crate gallery through the walkie-talkie and in kind collaboration of the barman.
The very brass bell in The Lifeboat pub.
The mass produced painting was once a passer-by attraction.
One of the first visitors of the show has an unsettling sentence for us:
— So... is the show open?
— Yes, it’s a work-in-progress.
— Hum, this thing is strong in concept...
— We are following artist’s instructions. And looking for an ‘unsettling sentence’ to be written in the gallery. Any idea?
— An unsettling sentence?
— What about ‘I fist on the first date’? Is it unsettling enough for you?
