One must be so careful these days

27th September 2007 — 28th October 2007

There's a lot happening in London this week, to put it mildly. Of course there's Frieze Art Fair. Then its ever expanding spawn of imitators; Year 07, Bridge, Zoo, Scope, Pulse, the Free Art Fair, the Affordable Art Fair. As well as Bloomberg New Contemporaries and Pilot 3, the live archive for artists and curators. The Frieze affect also means that every gallery in London is competing to get the Frieze crowd to their exhibitions.

Alma Enterprises are offering a unique programme of events this weekend. 'One must be so careful these days' is an exciting exhibition of new film and video works by Jennet Thomas, Eleanor Morgan, Yaron Lapid, Charlie Tweed, Ludo Mich, Emanuel Almborg and Kieron Dennis. Charlie Tweed's absurdist alter ego the 'Man From Below' makes himself into a 'self sustainable system' and heads south to launch his manifesto for 'going below'. Yaron Lapid's video installation 'The New Zero' has been constructed from over five hundred photographs found by the artist in a demolished photographer's studio in Jerusalem. Emanuel Almborg's video installation 'The Other Man' is a factional portrait of Blackpool Robert de Niro look-a-like Graham, intermingling his story with a parallel narrative. The show also features newly commissioned performances by Brian Catling, Thomas Altheimer and Kim Noble.

Performance Programme:

Friday 12 October, 2pm
Brian Catling: 'AWOL' Catling is a poet, sculptor and performance artist.

Friday 12 October, 6pm
Thomas Altheimer: An East London rally for his project 'Europe 08' 'The European campaign to take over the White House in 2008 takes a break from the American campaign trail to shore up financial support from American ex-pats and Europeans in London. Thomas Altheimer, who announced the ambitious campaign in Manhattan on the 4th of July this year, is looking to back and assist a native-born American who will pledge to run for president on a platform of European issues in 2008.'

Saturday 13 & Sunday 14 October 12 - 6pm
Kim Noble: Multi-media performance 'There are quite a few things Kim Noble could have done for his multimedia durational performance ... in the end he decided he wanted to help the audience out in some way. Warning: this performance contains an extract from The Power Of Love by Huey Lewis and The News.'
