Pest Publications Launch with performance by Martin Hamblen
The three Pest publications are the outcome of a 12-month international research project on how artists can work within alternative spaces by Preston-based artists Rebecca Chesney, Robina Llewellyn and Elaine Speight. The research took Pest to many artist-led projects throughout the UK as well as Toronto, Budapest, Lille and Amsterdam. The third and final publication deals with artist-led projects initiated in the public realm and includes artwork by Martin Hamblen and text by Sophie Hope and Pest.

More on Martin Hamblen: Using installation, intervention and time-based media Hamblen's practice is democratic in its delivery and execution, reacting to, and embracing the layperson's common criticism of contemporary art.
Hamblen's practice is a visual philosophy where actions speak louder than words and language is a red herring.
