SWANDOWN Private View – Monday 22 November 7.30pm

Please join us for the Private View of the SWANDOWN Installation at the Regency Town House

SWANDOWN is both travelogue and odyssey. For the last five or six years film-maker
and artist Andrew Kötting (GALLIVANT, THE FILTHY EARTH, IVUL) and writer Iain Sinclair have been
formulating a plot to pedal a Swan-shaped pedalo from Hastings to Hackney. As part
of the research they have walked the entire route and wherever possible followed
rivers, canals, seas and channels. This installation is a work-in-progress and includes
photographs, film loops and 7 Swandown Bookworks containing maps, plots, evidence,
postcards, correspondence and a website made in conjunction with Anonymous Bosh, Rob Bernard and Julien Lesage. The work might be seen as an endurance test or pedal-marathon undertaken in the spirit of Dada or the psychogeographical meander.
