    Since they were founded in 2001, Trolley Books has been highly regarded as a maverick independent publisher of photography, reportage, contemporary art and recently, literature. Trolley’s founder Gigi Giannuzzi is a well-known figure in the publishing and photographic industries for his original and dynamic approach to photobook publishing as well as his unrelenting support of photographers and important but underexposed stories. In a shock to the photography and publishing worlds he was diagnosed with cancer last year and passed away on Christmas Eve. Shortly before he died work began on a new book TROLLEYOLOGY, a look at the story behind Gigi and Trolley, which also will mark their first decade in publishing. In advance of the book’s release in Spring 2013, there will be an introduction to TROLLEYOLOGY in the form of a multi-media exhibition in London, which will contain previously unseen material from the making of the books, including personal images, contact sheets and photographers’ recollections, documenting the unique stories from each book and the importance of this small but potent publishing house. It will also featured an film by Artist and Film maker Stephen Bell of installation of filmed interviews of photographers, writers, artists and friends, talking about what Trolley means to them. The exhibition brings together photographers such as Nan Goldin, Alex Majoli, Stanley Greene, Paolo Pellegrin, Adam Broomberg and Oliver Chanarin, Tom Stoddart, Nina Berman, Thomas Dworzak, Alixandra Fazzina, Robin Maddock, and Jamie Morgan. It also includes contributions from wider members of the Trolley family such as the artists Paul Fryer, Sarah Lucas, Polly Morgan, Mat Collishaw, and writers Sean O Hagan, Julian Stallabrass and cultural historian Barry Miles. The book has a foreword by Serpentine Gallery Directors Julia Peyton-Jones and Hans Ulrich Obrist. Usually touching on abuses of power and human rights, publishing with Trolley is more than just making books, each photographer or writer has a unique story of their journey to print. The exhibition will also act as a celebration of Gigi’s life, and brings together the unorthodox vision and passion that has consumed Trolley Books over the past ten years and sets the bar unimaginably high for the next ten.

    • Prosopopoeia by Mat Collishaw Installed at The London EDITION

      Sedition partnered with EDITION Hotels for the opening of The London EDITION Hotel. In celebration of the opening on September 12th, British artist Mat Collishaw was commissioned by EDITION Hotels to create an exclusive digital limited edition available only on Sedition. The artwork was installed as a projection in the entrance in the week leading up to the opening. Prosopopoeia represents an illuminated diamond slowly rotating before a black background. Within the diamond are reflections of flowers – many of them Collishaw’s beloved orchids – that glitter and break up into prisms. The flowers catch fire, burn up, drown in luscious leafy green only to reappear in another rotation of the precious stone. The artwork is available exclusively on Sedition and is currently displayed at the London EDITION on all the 173 guest rooms alongside works by other Sedition artists. http://www.seditionart.com/mat_collishaw/prosopopoeia

                    Giant diseased-infested flowers projected on to a massive 360-degree curtain made up of hanging silicone tendrils feature in Mat Collishaw’s Sordid Earth. Collishaw found inspiration in the work of John Martin whilst constructing this piece, using the power of submersion in both a physical and metaphorical sense, to explore the toxic nature of our interest in bad things. Sordid Earth was shown as part of Ron Arad’s Curtain Call, shown earlier this year at the Roundhouse.
