Screening and reading 8-8.30pm
TACO! has produced a new publication by artist Charlie Godet Thomas which will launch at Kino Bermondsey. Accompanying this, there will be a reading by Thomas of a selection of works from the book with a screening.
'In Writing' (2021) presents a collection of Thomas' poems and drawings. This is a limited edition book of 100, published by TACO!, designed by An Endless Supply with an introduction by writer Matthew Turner. The book includes 83 illustrated works, each hand drawn in Thomas’ graphic approach to word play and imagery. The book anticipates the upcoming solo exhibition of Thomas at TACO! in 2022.
There will also be an opportunity to view 'The Hindsighters Children' at VITRINE London, a solo show of Basel-based artist Sophie Jung, running until 09 January 2022.
The book can be purchased online from the TACO! shop
