Dead Fingers Talk: The Tape Experiments of William S. Burroughs

This group exhibition opens at 6pm on Thursday at Image Music Text Gallery in Bethnal Green, London.  Come along!  We'll be showing a new sound work called, 'Ghosts', where visitors are invited to recover a series of telephone calls made in the surrounding area during the late 1990's by listening to the gallery wall with a stethoscope.  The radio scanner that originally captured these calls acts as a kind of cut up device in this instance, as it locks onto, then loses each signal in turn.  Ghosts is a reworking of our 1998 installation, 'Speaking in Tongues' and has been made especially with Burroughs work in mind.

Other artists in the exhibition: Alma/Joe Ambrose, Steve Aylett, Alex Baker & Kit Poulson, Lawrence English, The Human Separation, Riccardo Iacono,Anthony Joseph, Cathy Lane, Eduardo Navas, Negativland, o.blaat, Aki Onda, Jörg Piringer, Plastique Fantastique, Simon Reuben White, Giorgio Sadotti, Scanner, Terre Thaemlitz, Laureana Toledoand Ultra-red, with performances by Ascsoms and Solina Hi-Fi.
