Pete and Repeat is a platform for artists’ publications and editions that will launch at the Brussels gallery in February 2020 within a structure designed by Anna Barham as part of her ongoing Crystal Fabric Field series. Pete and Repeat will share the structure with rare books and records selected by Gauthier De Ro.

The programme for Pete and Repeat will run concurrently with the gallery programme – either accompanied by an exhibition by the publishing artist or in synergy with exhibited artist and works.

The inaugural presentation is Barham’s new book ‘Poisonous Oysters’ which will be launched in the space on Friday March 20th 18.00 – 20.00 with readings by Anna and others.

Pete and Repeat’s forthcoming presentations will include projects by Maria Zahle, Jeremiah Day and Clive Hodgson

The material in Poisonous Oysters was generated during a live production reading group held in Newcastle University’s Fine Art Department on 26.01.18. Passages from the texts listed below were read aloud by the participants and interpreted by speech recognition software over and over, creating a
poly-vocal feedback loop with the machine. The output is rewritten here as a score, flattening the time of the event and aligning the different versions of the texts to reveal the sound mutations between them.

Precarious Life, Judith Butler
The Waves, Virginia Woolf
Vampyroteuthis Infernalis, Vilém Flusser
Body Pressure, Bruce Nauman
Testo Junkie, Beatriz Preciado
The Politics of Translation, Gayatri Spivak
Creating trance and hypnosis scripts, Gemma Bailey
