Iain Sinclair: London Orbital
In London Orbital (Granta £25) Iain Sinclair sets out to map the vast, uncharted area of urban settlement outside the ‘territory’ he has made his own but bounded by the ‘collar’ of the M25. Iain’s circumnavigations reveal a history of forgotten villages, suburban utopias and hellish asylums now transformed into upmarket housing. Visual material collaged together for Iain’s walks by artists including Emma Matthews, Effie Paleologou, Liat Uziel, Pinky Ghundale, Renchi Bicknell, and Sea (Sara + Emmanuel) will be exhibited in the small upstairs gallery. Iain Sinclair’s works include Lights Out for the Territory, and Landor’s Tower.
