Histories & Hauntings is the third in a trilogy of staged interventions by Brian Catling and Iain Sinclair at Swedenborg House. It is also, simultaneously, a reprisal (or continuation) of Albion Island Vortex (1974), an exhibition held half a century ago at the Whitechapel Gallery, co-organized with the artist and writer Renchi Bicknell. On the Whitechapel Gallery website, the exhibition is listed as never having ended. Drawing together a mixture of paintings, archival material, found objects, prints and photographs, Bicknell and Sinclair engage with the spaces of personal memory and the spaces of Swedenborg House in the wake of Catling’s passing late last year. The exhibition is at once a testament to the past, and a new work birthed in the crucible of memory.
