S Mark Gubb has been hypnotised and is working with East-Kent based fanzine Road Kill to rediscover his youth – specifically, his late teens, which he spent as a heavy metal and hardcore-loving musician and skateboarder in Margate.
Gubb(35) taped himself undergoing hypnotic regression, later producing a typescript which forms the source material for a new zine of drawings made by Roadkill, which will also be realised as a ‘walk-in zine’ in Crate’s Project Space in Margate.
Crate will also be holding an exhibition of fanzines and artists’ books to coincide with History of a Time to Come, featuring contributions from Road Kill – who will be bringing hand-printed hoodies and T-shirts as well as zines – and other self-publishers from Kent, including artist Lucy Harrison, who has a solo exhibition at Crate in March.
There should be thirty or forty contributors in total from Kent and further afield.
Entry is free, and all contributors will have work for sale. Non-contributors are welcome to bring their own fanzines to show and swap.
History of a Time to Come is part of Bad Translation, Crate’s programme for 2009/10. It is generously supported by Arts Council England and Kent County Council.
