Manic Shooter reimagines the aesthetics of early shoot 'em up video games. In-game screenshots of brightly coloured projectiles and spaceships, serve as raw material for the visual interpretation of Alain Vonck. This series of lively and evocative abstractions is complemented by the words of Guillaume Ladvie. Translated from French into Japanese and English, the poem deals with the dark and universal themes of war. This dialogue between words and images draws an ambiguous portrait of violence, lost between shadow and light.

VERK - by Íris Erlings - £10
A body of work from Íris Erlings made in 2019. Verk is an Icelandic word with triple meaning; the act of work, the creation from working and composition.
These ten meticulously detailed drawings stem from digital collages from a plethora of natural and classical elements.
Lizard Point '99 - by Jerry O'Driscoll & Luke Overin - £20
A road trip to the heart of pre-millennial, communal fervour; Lizard Point '99 is a textual and photographic exploration of a young man's last few days of being wild. 
By a chance inter-generational encounter, Jerry O'Driscoll's documentary photography of the Total Solar Eclipse event has been un-earthed and curated by Luke Overin - amounting to a glorious, monochromatic ode to illegal raves, fuggy campervans, and a very English kind of communal identity.
Whilst the photographs in the book recount a specific and special time in O’Driscoll’s life, the supporting interview is forward thinking in its messaging and presents a rallying cry to a fragmentary society tip-toeing cautiously towards a post-pandemic future.
