BOOK LAUNCH AND READINGS – A lot can happen in fifteen minutes 

28 October 2016 - 11 November 2016

“Life moves faster than people. There are times when just being can leave a person completely bewildered.

Feelings of disorientation, isolation and social anxiety lie at the heart of ‘A lot can happen in fifteen minutes’.

A collaboration between artist Helen Shaddock and the independent publishing house UnstapledPress, the risograph publication features a selection of Shaddock’s humorous texts and sketches alongside playful and colourful patterns and diagrams. Shaddock’s wistfully penned vignettes invite meditation on relationships, personal history, habits and the awkward mundane. Everything has come feet over handlebars. You have lost your balance.” (2016)

The publication is available in the bookshop for £13 or online here.

Helen Shaddock invited artists, writers and musicians to submit creative responses to the text and diagrams in the publication. These artworks were presented at a closing exhibition event at NewBridge Books on Friday 11th November 2016.
