Intercapillary Places Launch - Thursday 17th

The first ever "Intercapillary" live event is nearly here - "I Know Something About Love"

Thursday March 17th, 2011

6.30 for 7.00 pm at Parasol Unit, 14 Wharf Road, London, N1 7RW

A walk around the 'Jardin d'amour' maze installation by Yinka Shonibare

Elizabeth Eger - A talk on 'Jardin d'amour'

Reitha Pattison - Reading from 'Some Fables'

£3 / £1.50

Important: As the capacity for the event is limited, please book in advance by emailing Charlotte Jones at or calling on 020 7490 7373 ext 20. Please be aware that if you haven't booked in advance and turn up on the night, this is fine but please be aware that if capacity is reached then you may not be allowed in.

Join us amid the Jardin d'amour, a large verdant maze installation which visitors can walk around, and which in the centre features three arrangements of headless aristocrats, though dressed in batik-style fabric - Elizabeth Eger will essay the labyrinth work to hand and its 18th century implications, then Reitha Pattison will read from "Some Fables".

We will be gathering in the gallery foyer from 6.30 to 7, allowing time to wander around and get lost in the installed Jardin d'amour maze. Then we will retire upstairs to the events room for Elizabeth Eger's talk on the Jardin followed by Reitha Pattison's poetry reading.

Hope to see you there amid the maze, beside the decapitated rococo lovers. There will be chairs to sit on, & 'Interior Ears' for all attendees...

Hi Zero - 22nd March

The second Hi Zero Poetry Reading Event Will Take Place on Tuesday  22nd March, 2011 at the HOPE in BRIGHTON, UK, and feature the mouths in action of the following poetical subjectivities:

(One third of Grasp Press, editor of AXOLOTL, et al, ROBERT's poems are as rigorous in their concatenation of the moral and political as they are delicious in their prosodic inflection. See his work in HOT
GUN! 1, Damn the Cæsars Vol.... N, AXOLOTL, ate cetera, days all round  but spiked with invoices.)

(Editor of YT COMMUNICATION, writer of verse streamlined in its intransitive commerce of geo-physical interaction rites, her poetry has been published in myriad collections from Shift & Switch to  Infinite Difference to Damn the Cæsars et. al.,;- A Discourse on Vegetation and Motion was pub'ed by CRITICAL DOX in 2008)

(Hayward began developing super-power skillsets in prosodic  declamation prior to the application of these skills to Real-World database contamination of the wingspan. See Hi Zero Magazine One, one  of the 25 numbered copies). See also how his poetry is the impassioned wingspan of the skillset machinating on the Real-World declamation of the Real)

All this and more with sound and people for £4 on the door, posters coming soon.

Hi Zero Magazine 2 will also be on sale. Submissions & letters. Welcome.
