About

Infinity Land Press is delighted to invite you to The ‘Infinity Land Press Book Launch and Exhibition' at Babble.Jar event venue. The event will feature the London book launch of: 'TO PUTREFACTION' Martin Bladh - Text Karolina Urbaniak - Photographs Jeremy Reed - Foreward Exhibition, life performance and video presentation. Private View Sunday 14th July 6pm-10pm Exhibition 14th July - 7th August Babble.Jar 176 Stoke Newington High Street, London, England. TO PUTREFACTION Putrefaction: disintegration of biological material (e.g. proteins) through the operation of microbes, disintegration of corpses (cadaver); the agents of putrefaction distinguish themselves partly through a (foul) distinctive smell: hydrogen sulphide, marcaptans, indole, skat-ole, phenol etc. Also appearing: methane, fatty acids, basic substances, usually poisonous, like neurine, putrescine, cadaverine and muscarine. I chose to believe that several known (and less known artist) have turned the aesthetic destruction inwards by staging poetic suicides as a closure to a mayor body of work. Their lives would be read like straight lines, their works indicated as dots upon these lines which reach contextual perfection in death: the last masterpiece. The protagonist life becomes a real life drama, his action, work and achievements are enacted as chapters in a novel or tracks on a concept album. The final act of self-annihilation would be his last sublime creation. I fantasise about earning my own pedestal in this private pantheon of beauty. — Martin Bladh
