‘Say No More’ is a collaboration between isthisit? and Charlie Godet Thomas which brings together artists – including Tim Etchells – who draw attention to, or bypass altogether, the tricks that words play on us. The selected works point towards the possibilities that arise when the uncertainty of language becomes a subject in its own right. These pieces are punctuated by Charlie’s poetic writings, photographs and literary archival material.
Online here, until until 22 March, 2018.
“Grant published his trilogy over a period of 30 years, consisting of nonfictional accounts of his experience with magic and the occult. Nightside of Eden is written in his ‘Draconian tradition’ that Strong reflects within his work. Grant talks about there being a ‘nightside’ to the tree of life, functioning as a ‘mirror image’ of its ‘dayside’. This other side contains ancient forms of knowledge, power and dark forces that are entering our world, threatening it with disruption. Strong draws this out, mediating on the spiritual and mystical possibility of this being the cause of our unbalanced world; the works are mirrors through which you can experience this story of unhinged paranoia.”
