Jamie Reid: The Ragged Kingdom

Jamie Reid: The Ragged Kingdom

Nothing is clear cut with Jamie Reid; as such this new exhibition is a retrospective (of sorts!) of Reids career to date. Reid remains most famous for his work with the Sex Pistols, however there are arguably eight distinct periods that define his output; Suburban Press, The Cat Book, Sex Pistols, How To Become Invisible, Afrocelt/Visual Stress, Strongroom, a Festival of Sleeves and the Eightfold Year.

The Ragged Kingdom brings together each period along with some oversize montages of other associated works. Each period is represented / displayed within its own tipi.

According to Isis Gallery; Jamie Reid is world renowned for his work with the Sex Pistols, but there is so much more than this. Reid’s collaboration on the Suburban Press (1971-1975) was an early coalescing of his political convictions and artistic intuition, and his output after the implosion of the Pistols extended his artistic drive through many genres – music, publishing, performance.
After a long creative residency at the Strongroom Studios in Shoreditch and three years as visual art director for Afro Celt Sound System, he has for the last ten years, immersed himself in a daily painting practice to explore and reveal the Aspects of the Eightfold Year.

Ragged Kingdom will manifest as a Peace Camp in our midst – a place to pow-wow.

Eight custom-made tipis with magickal adornments will be drawn up into a protective circle with a ritual space at its axis. Tipis traditionally represent Shelter, Wonderment, Harmony, Peace, Beauty and Community.
For Ragged Kingdom, each tipi will be a world in itself, internally representing eight aspects of Reid’s career to date ”“ Suburban Press, The Cat Book, Sex Pistols, How To Become Invisible, Afrocelt/Visual Stress, Strongroom, a Festival of Sleeves and the Eightfold Year.

The exterior of Isis Gallery at Londonewcastle Depot will feature a giant montage of selected posters, glyphs and symbols by Jamie Reid.

  1. Wonderful beat ! I would like to apprentice while you amend your site, how can i subscribe for a blog website? The account helped me a acceptable deal. I had been a little bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright clear concept

  2. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  3. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  4. Good website! I really love how it is easy on my eyes and the data are well written. I am wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I’ve subscribed to your RSS which must do the trick! Have a nice day!

  5. I do believe all of the concepts you’ve presented on your post. They’re very convincing and will certainly work. Nonetheless, the posts are too brief for beginners. May you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

  6. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  7. It is really a great and useful piece of info. I’m glad that you just shared this useful information with us. Please stay us up to date like this. Thanks for sharing. katalog seo http://www.netbe.pl/dla,dzieci/dla,dzieci,p,405/
