Launch: SLAIN BY THE CRUEL BLADE OF POSTMODERNITY
Wednesday 5 December, 6.30 – 8.30pm
Join cult artists and writers Ayo & Oni Oshodi in the Bookshop for the launch of the inaugural edition of their zine SLAIN BY THE CRUEL BLADE OF POSTMODERNITY. In keeping with their enigmatic appearances and utterances, the new publication is a typically sly, playful and cryptic assembly of autobiographical references and appropriated material. Ayo & Oni are expected to make a rare ‘masked’ appearance. Music set by the collective They Are Here.
Ayo & Oni Oshodi have most recently performed or staged works at mac Birmingham, Forest Fringe (Edinburgh Festival), Battersea Arts Centre, VIVID and were part of Chisenhale Gallery’s Live Art Residency program in 2009-10. They have a forthcoming performance at Grand Union, Birmingham in Spring 2013.
