An Evening With Brian Catling and Iain Sinclair
Tuesday 19th September 19:30 at Brighton
Brian Catling (born 1948, in London) is a sculptor, poet, novelist, film maker and performance artist. He is Professor of Fine Art at The Ruskin School of Art, Oxford. He has exhibited his art internationally since the 1970s. His debut novel The Vorrh (2015) was praised by Tom Waits (‘I am glad to have the book as a companion on my own dark quest’), Alan Moore (‘The current century’s first landmark work of fantasy and ranking amongst the best pieces ever written in that genre’) and Michael Moorcock ('It is one of the most original works of visionary fiction since Mervyn Peake'). Catling’s new novel The Erstwhile is the second part of a trilogy begun by The Vorrh.
Iain Sinclair (born 1948, in Cardiff) is the author of a series of autobiographical novels and non-fiction chronicling London’s changing face; his books mix journalism, satire, poetry and mysticism. His works include Downriver, winner of the 1992 James Tait Black Memorial Prize; and London Orbital (2002), his account of his circumnavigation of the M25. He’s also a filmmaker; his films include Swandown (2012), which charted his journey from Hastings beach to Hackney on a swan pedalo. Sinclair describes his new book 'The Last London' as ‘my final tilt at our stretched city. The end of a long sequence.’
