SJ Fowler has Enemies. And the Enemies of his Enemies are his friends.
This ground-breaking, multi-disciplinary collection is the result of collaborations with over thirty artists, photographers and writers. Diary entries mingle with a partially-redacted email exchange; texts slip and fragment, finding new contexts alongside prints, paintings, diagrams, Rorschach blots, YouTube clips and behind-the-scenes photographs at the British Museum.
Enemies includes collaborations with: Emily Critchley, Alexander Kell, Ben Morris, David Kelly, Sarah Kelly, Patrick Coyle, Sian Williams, Anatol Knotek, David Berridge, David Kelly, Lone Eriksen, Frédéric Forte, Eiríkur Örn Norðdahl, Claire Potter, Tim Atkins, Marcus Slease, Ryan Van Winkle, Tom Jenks, Chris McCabe, Monica Rinck, Deborah Pearson, Matteo Patocchi, Sam Riviere and Samantha Johnson.


“An overwhelming assault. The geography is unnerving, almost familiar, then stinging in its estrangement. Intensity crackles. Tension teases. At what point does collision become collaboration? When do the bandages come off?”
Iain Sinclair
