I Am Not Here To Entertain You


Curated by Karl Weill At the Bun House, 96 Peckham High Street, London, SE15 5ED On Friday, 28th October 2011, 7pm onwards. Party to follow. Jack Catling Lennie Lee Vanessa Mitter Nicola Ruben Montini O. B.

It is forbidden to forbid. I want you to imagine, for a moment, an audience who are not entertained. I am walking backwards. Ennui. The slow rustling of a paper bag. Talking. A man swears.
