Longplaying 3: Andrew Kötting & Iain Sinclair: Swandown

Trinity Buoy Wharf, 7 September 2011

In the third of this summer’s Longplaying events artist and film maker Andrew Kötting and writer Iain Sinclair talked about their new collaborative work Swandown and the Long Pedal.

Kötting hauled a plastic swan, a lure, as we walked. We were accompanied by a pair of mature students from the art college where he taught: one of them had got himself into shape for this by completing the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela and the other kept a record with a pinhole camera made from a Swan Vesta matchbox. Random encounters calibrated our progress.
Iain Sinclair, 2010
