A few months ago Laetitia was invited by Ethan Swan to contribute to SHOWPAPER, NYC-based DIY listings paper. Below is the resultant image and relevant text, a little late but totally worth sharing, i'm sure you'll agree
☗ THIS IS THE NEW COVER OF SHOWPAPER! ISSUE 134! ☗
It's a single sheet of newsprint with a full listing of every all ages / underground show in New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut, along with a beautiful, full-color print.
♢ ISSUE 134: Laetitia Glenton ♢
♢ June 25 - July 10 ♢
2 of 3 Issues Curated by Ethan Swan
Laetitia Glenton is an artist based in Manchester, UK, where as one half of Comfortable on a Tightrope, she produces independent concerts, DJs, releases tapes and records. Her visual arts practice is inseparable from her activity in the city’s DIY scene, as her works on paper reflect the languages and concerns of this community. Nostalgia-rich images from discarded advertisements and home photography are damaged and reprocessed in her work, questioning these legacies. Coded messages are hidden in dead languages and punctuation, mirroring the means by which underground scenes communicate. Her work has appeared in exhibitions in the UK, and in numerous small press books and records.
