is a poet and artist living in London. He has published four collections of poetry, most recently the limited-edition Recipes
, published by Red Ceilings in 2012. He has produced poetry, sonic art, installation and performance artworks for the Tate, the Voiceworks project and the London Sinfonietta. He is the poetry editor of 3:AM Magazine
and also works as a martial arts instructor, and as an employee of the British Museum. A lovely lad, by all accounts, I'm sure you'll agree. But it seems even the most altruistic soul rubs up against a few people the wrong way along life's turbulent path. SJ Fowler, we are reliably informed, has enemies.
This ground-breaking, multi-disciplinary collection is the result of collaborations with over thirty artists, photographers and writers. Diary entries mingle with a partially-redacted email exchange; texts slip and fragment, finding new contexts alongside prints, paintings, diagrams, Rorschach blots, YouTube clips and behind-the-scenes photographs at the British Museum. Trust us, it really is as mad as it sounds, in the very best way possible.
Including collaborations with the unrivalled Sam Riviere and the indisputably brilliant Chris McCabe this is a collection of poetry unlike anything you will have ever read before. Iain Sinclair called it, "An overwhelming assault," and we're not about to disagree.
