Following the performances, we will be screening Video Show curated by Chris Coombes, Simon Raven will present his long awaited DJ set and Tether will serve a specially developed cocktail.

”What I hope is to evoke the idea that maybe it is all a fake, or a performance, like the things I’m talking about, but that is a peculiarly sharp way to get to something with which we can empathise.”

#May29 by Tether

An auction taking place from a secret room inside Mike Nelson’s Coral Reef, songs about potato smiles and classic Hitchcockian suspense all feature in the latest event produced by Tether, live from the Caretaker’s House at Primary Studios and live online.

The event takes place on May 29, the date Constantinople fell to the Ottoman Empire (1453), the first annual meeting of the secretive Bilderberg group took place (1954) and Dennis Hopper died (2010).

Image#May29 places diverse happenings or ephemera into a non-linear format. Tether have invited Birmingham Art Zine to present a new performance alongside Les Malheureux, a unique collaboration between flash fiction writers David Gaffney and Sarah-Clare Conlon.

The event also includes the first UK presentation of work by Mavis Enron of California, a screening of a recent live performance from John Walter at Vanilla Galleries, DJ sets from Hello Thor & Simon Raven and a brand new cocktail created to celebrate the occasion.

The event will be preceded by a live stream of a sold out discussion between graphic novelists Alan Moore & Melinda Gebbie, taking place at Nottingham Contemporary in relation to the James Gillray exhibition. The discussion will be presented on a large projection screen in the hall at Primary, 7pm.

WAKE by Tether

From the Caretaker’s House. Episode 1

Featuring Dave Charlesworth

Tether Wake Live at Primary 24 April 2012 9pm

Four years ago, the world was startled by the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics, arguably the most impressive visual spectacle of modern times. But amidst the rockets fired to create the perfect weather, the digitally composited footstep fireworks and that ugly child with the perfect voice being hidden away in a broom cupboard, there emerged an element of deception that only became apparent because of mankind’s fondness for suspicion.

On 24 April 1558, Mary, Queen of Scots married François, the Dauphin of France. On 24 April 1704, the first newspaper in the United States, the ‘News-Letter’, was published in Boston, Massachusetts. On 24 April 1967, Vladimir Komarov became the first human fatality during a space mission in the Soviet spacecraft Soyuz 1.

On 24 April 2012, Tethervision will launch Caretakers House, their latest series live at Primary in Nottingham and also streamed live online.
Wake – the first programme in the series features a performance of ‘A Struggle Told 5 Ways’ by London-based artist Dave Charlesworth.
With the analogue to digital switchover, the kindle and the iPad, we are entering the final stages of the inevitable transition to a new, non physical materialism. Wake will mourn this slow passing of the analogue and look to the coming years to be spent with it’s new, energised replacement.

The event at Primary begins at 8pm. To book a space for this, visit http://wake.eventbrite.com
Wake will also be broadcast live online, Tuesday 24 April, 9pm BST at youtube.com/tethervision
