The Life and Legend of Austin Osman Spare + Zardoz

31 Mar 2011

As part of the Nathaniel Mellors: Ourhouse exhibition, Nathaniel Mellors and Strange Attractor Journal editor Mark Pilkington have assembled a series of weekly events, consisting of a talk and a film, exploring some lesser-known intersections of culture, history, mind and nature.

You can book for either the talk or film seperately, or both together for a reduced rate.

Talk: The Life and Legend of Austin Osman Spare with Phil Baker, 7pm
Artist, visionary and occultist, Austin Osman Spare’s career began in Edwardian celebrity and ended in Fifties obscurity. Spare's biographer considers the success and failure of Spare, with special reference to demonology and interior decoration, and discusses Spare's life, roots and obsessions.

Film: Zardoz, 8.30pm
Set in the future, a savage trained only to kill finds a way into the community of bored immortals that alone preserves humanity's achievements.
Dir. John Boorman, 1974, 101 mins, DVD
