Life moves faster than people. There are times when just being can leave a person completely bewildered.

Feelings of disorientation, isolation and social anxiety lie at the heart of ‘A lot can happen in fifteen minutes’.

A collaboration between artist Helen Shaddock and the independent publishing house UnstapledPress, the risograph publication features a selection of Shaddock’s humorous texts and sketches alongside playful and colourful patterns and diagrams. Shaddock’s wistfully penned vignettes invite meditation on relationships, personal history, habits and the awkward mundane. Everything has come feet over handlebars. You have lost your balance.

For this closing event, Helen Shaddock has invited artists, writers and musicians to submit creative responses to the text and diagrams in the publication. 

Contributors include: Gary Bolam, Kathryn Brame, Sean Burn, Susie Davies, Stella Dixon, Jez Riley French & Pheobe Law, Sarah Grundy, Ute Kirkwood, Edwin Li, Rosie O'Grady, Fang Qi, Sabina Sallis, Helen Shaddock, David Sherry, Cecilia Stenbon, Kate Stobbart, Sofija Sutton & Holly Wheeler

These artworks will be presented in the PH Space on Friday 11th November. Collaborative artwork and the publication will be in NewBridge Books.
