PSC’s first ‘Residency in a Record Store’ culminates in the installation and exhibition of a new sculptural video work by John Lawrence. Taking into consideration the particular nature of Flashback Records as an active site, and its newest location on Bethnal Green Rd, the artwork uses video to explore how music displaces bodies and objects in physical space. Analogue concerns are placed centre stage as we are reminded how records,  using energy to spin and collections, needing space to be stored both relate to our own embodied experience.

In conjunction with his practice based in objects, text and video installation, Lawrence organises After/Hours/Drop/Box – a peripatetic event platform at the intersection of music, video and live performance.
