diisonance launch

We had a really enjoyable and successful launch of diisonance last Friday at The Gallery Cafe, Bethnal Green. There were some powerful and provocative readings, copies of the book were sold and there was a good audience, including some very old friends.

Many thanks to all who came along and supported the diisonance book and project.

Here are some photos from the evening, we filmed all the reading and will put them online as soon as they are ready.

There are many more photos on @haulpawkins & @H_G_Press twitter accounts.

It was made during, or to perform at diisonance, an exhibition of artworks by Steve Ryan & paul hawkins in June 2017 at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield. diisonance is a collaboration, part of a jigsaw, the genesis of which is shared experiences; Steve & paul met in the early 90’s squatting in Claremont Road, east London at the height of anti-road protests, poll-tax riots & dissent. They’ve tried to piece together the past from the future, making sense of the ghosts that stay with them & the shared feelings of confusion & love for their entwined topics; politicised, faltering, broken & rebuilt many times over. diisonance began as a response to Place Waste Dissent (Influx Press 2015) by paul hawkins.

June 21 – 24 diisonance exhibition & events at Bank Street Arts, Sheffield, with thanks to SIX Project Space, Bank Street Arts and 612media. ​Supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Sept 29: hestercap / letglock: diisonance ii

with Jonathan Mann, paul hawkins, Jude Cowan Montague, Matti Spence, more tbc entry by donation

As part of Steve Ryan & paul hawkins’ diisonance exhibition / events throughout Sept at The Gallery Cafe, St. Margarets House, 21 Old Ford Road, London E2 9PL, the experimental press Hesterglock Press joins forces with London-based poetry reading and discussion series Caplet to bring you an evening of collaborative poetries in dialogue. Exploring diisonance’s ongoing theme of miscommunication and chaos, six leading innovative poets will read specially-commissioned works, and then discuss their work. As is usual with a Caplet event, members of the audience will have the opportunity the ask the poets questions, and – who knows – perhaps also take part in the performance.

and there’s a FB event page here

diisonance is a collaboration, part of a jigsaw, the genesis of which is shared experiences; Steve and paul met in the early nineties squatting in Claremont Road, east London at the height of anti-road protests, poll-tax riots and dissent. They’ve tried to piece together the past from the future, making sense of the ghosts that stay with them and the trust they offer one another clarify’s shared feelings of confusion and love for their entwined topics; politicised, faltering, broken and rebuilt many times over.
paul has written extensively on his experiences of squatting/protesting against the building of the M11 Link Road through east London, most recently in Place Waste Dissent (Influx Press 2015), which ‘plots the run-off, rackets and 90’s resistance to the proposed M11 Link Road; text experiments and collage from Claremont Road to Cameron. Memory traces re-surface the A12, words fight for space – and on occasion lose – against the images of police officers, residents, stilt walkers and emptied streets’. It also includes some of Steve’s iconic photography.
In diisonance Steve’s collaborative starting point is responding to Place Waste Dissent, with further memory travels and exotic imaginings. paul continues absorbing and responding to Steve’s artworks, and over time new psychological assemblages have evolved to pay tribute to the ghosts before they are laid to rest.
