Details

SWANDOWN is a plot of Olympian ambition. A poetic film-diary about encounter and culture, an endurance test and pedal-marathon. Andrew Kotting and Iain Sinclair pedalled a swan pedalo from the seaside in Hastings to Hackney in East London, via the inland waterways. The journey provided multifarious outcomes; a film work, pinhole photographs, email correspondence and numerous texts and artifacts – documentation of which is beautifully reproduced in this limited edition bookwork.

“Iain Sinclair is taking a mythological symbol to the Olympics, maybe to remind the Olympics what they are about? He likes a journey. Whereas I think Andrew Kotting just sort of sees what happens and the reverse engineers the meaning after he has collated the events.” Stewart Lee – Writer and Clown
