The TROLLEYOLOGY London launch took place on Thursday 13th June at our gallery TJ Boulting. The evening was begun with prosecco and Julia Peyton-Jones, Director of the Serpentine Gallery, gave a speech about Gigi’s important contribution to publishing. Unfortunately all of the new books had been delayed traveling from Italy but this made for a spectacular arrival at 10pm and a celebration on the street. Nicolas Righetti, author of Trolley books Love Me Turkmenistan and Yes To A Rosy Future, captured the events on camera.
The Telegraph has just published a review of our newest publication TROLLEYOLOGY: The First Ten Years of Trolley Books. Read the full article here.
Come and join Trolley at the art car boot from midday-6 this Sunday, 9th June at Brick Lane Yard, E1. This year is the tenth anniversary of the art car boot and to celebrate we are selling, and showing for the first time in London, our new TROLLEYOLOGY book! Our very exclusive TROLLEYOLOGY tote bags will also be available which were specially printed for us at the Rio Terà dei Pensieri prison in Venice. One special addition we are bringing is our own Trolley version of Gigi’s favourite ‘ABUSE OF POWER COMES AS NO SURPRISE’ t-shirt. See you there!
Juliana Cerqueira Leite’s first solo show in Brazil opens on Saturday 8th June, 12-5pm at CASA TRIÂNGULO, São Paulo.
The exhibition will include new sculptures, drawings and photo-objects that were produced during a two-month residency at Fundação Armando Álvarez Penteado’s downtown São Paulo building. Ponto Cego [Blind Spot], 2013, is the largest work in the gallery and is currently being produced in-situ leading up to the opening. This new work consists of a two ton wood and clay machine for measuring the body and a large-scale rubber form that is produced within this construction.
