Tim Corballis book launch: R.H.I.
Tim Corballis launched his latest book R.H.I. (VUP) at 17 Tory Street on 19 August. R.H.I. combines two novellas, based on events in the lives of Joan Riviere, an early British lay psychoanalyst, and Hermann Henselmann, postwar Chief Architect of the German Democratic Republic, respectively. Fergus Barrowman, launching the book, said it was not so much a book that pulls the rug out from under the readers feet, as a book without a rug in the first place… The launch featured a silent video loop, composed of looped found imagery accompanied by on-screen text fragments from the book, running in a ticker along the bottom of the screen.
