We’ll on occasion uploadĀ snippetsĀ (or the full thing) of artists/poets videos which we think fit into the Abridged philosophy. As a taster here is a clip from a Hiraki Sawa video. Copyright remains with the artists and organisations of course. We’re big fans of Hiraki’s work and saw great shows at the James Cohen gallery, New York and Void Gallery, Derry.


We’ve always been fans of And Also The Trees ( and so were very glad to have lyrics from Simon Jones in both the Nostalgia and Desire and Dust issues. Below is 21 York Street which appeared in Abridged 0 – 22: Nostalgia is a Loaded Gun which can be found on their excellent Further From the Truth album .


We were pleased to have Ailbhe Ni Bhriain in our Nostalgia is a Loaded Gun issue. We’re big fans of her work Thank’s to Ailbhe and Domo Baal Gallery for permission to use her video. Ailbhe Ni Bhriain is an artist living and working in Ireland. She works primarily in video and also with photography, building up her work in camera, with multiple layers of filmed footage together with stills and recorded sound. Ailbhe Ni Bhriain is represented by DOMOBAAL gallery in London and more information on her work can be found on

A (very rapid) tour through Tulca 2012/ We’re very proud of that festival.
