The Age of Anti-Ageing takes its title from the most recent in a series of post-photographic collaborations between writer and artist Stewart Home and photographer and filmmaker Chris Dorley-Brown. Consisting of eight morphed photographs, this work will be shown alongside Becoming (M)Other, Home and Dorley-Brown's initial collaboration from 2004, based on fashion shots from 1966 featuring Home's mother, Julia Callan-Thompson. A club hostess, model, aspirant movie actress, pioneer of the hippie trail and hard drug user, her circle included Alex Trocchi, Marianne Faithful and William Borroughs. Julia's fast life and untimely death were the subject of Home's 2005 novel Tainted Love. A decade later, Julia's cousin Ray, a notorious burglar and jail breaker whose underworld career spanned the greater part of the twentieth century, is the inspiration for Home's latest novel, The 9 Lives of Ray the Cat Jones published this autumn by Test Centre and launched in conjunction with this exhibition.
