I decided to read some Taxidermy poems, about dead animals, rather than the piece in the Aspidistra magazine that was being launched. It was a lovely evening, my friend Chris Page came to keep me company as I knew no one in the room aside from the magazine editor, Bella, who did an amazing job. This was the first time I had ever been to Peckham, I think. It was nicer than most people's first visit to Peckham.
The work of Joel Ely was in the magazine and on exhibition in the gallery. It blew me away, we have subsequently begun a collaboration. Can't recommend his work enough. http://www.joelely.com/
