Sinclair & Lucas
Vanessa Sinclair & Douglas Lucas: “Sound 23”
An evocative collaboration between Vanessa Sinclair and American sound artist Douglas Lucas. This album contains eight tracks that weave Sinclair’s cut-up poems into revealing packages of sonorous delight. Sometimes harsh and aggressive, sometimes soft and alluring; always seductive in their joint efforts at upheaving the rational mind and its many intellectual accomplices. After the cataclysmic clash of rational refusal, we are here left with the purely sensual delight that comes from giving in to what random chance suggests, and what spontaneous creation actually brings.
The standard edition consists of a CD, an information sheet, three reproduced collages, one reproduced page from Vanessa Sinclair’s remix of Carl Abrahamsson’s novel Mother, Have A Safe Trip, and two photographs of the artists. Numbers 8-23.
The deluxe edition consists of a box containing a CD, an information sheet, three reproduced collages, three reproduced pages from Vanessa Sinclair’s remix of Carl Abrahamsson’s novel Mother, Have A Safe Trip, and four photographs of the artists, plus one original collage, signed by Vanessa Sinclair. Numbers 1-7.
A collaboration with Highbrow Lowlife (catalog number HILO-048). For more information about their other releases, please visit:
Sinclair & Abrahamsson
Last year saw the release of the Sinclair & Abrahamsson film “Mementeros – A turbulent thrust into a void of substance.” It’s a mind-bending super 8 extravaganza into a world of deep eroticism, transcending time and space and evoking all your innermost secret fantasies. Mixing vintage super 8 footage with newly shot material, the film brings a psycho-sexual impact that paralyses the rational mind and opens the floodgates of libido-drenched impulses. One considerable part of the overall “Mementeros” effect is the merging of the cut-ups of Vanessa Sinclair and the music of Carl Abrahamsson. Now their soundtrack is finally released on CD in an edition made in collaboration between Highbrow Lowlife and Trapart Editions, strictly limited to 23 copies.
The signed standard edition consists of a CD with the soundtrack, an information sheet, two reproduced collages, and four photographs of the artists. Numbers 8-23.
The signed deluxe edition consists of a box containing a CD with the soundtrack, an information sheet, two reproduced collages, and four photographs of the artists, plus one set of 13 photographs (a full miniature reproduction set of the artists’ “Mementeros” exhibition in Switzerland in 2019), plus a DVD with the “Mementeros” film. Numbers 1-7. PLEASE NOTE: This edition has been sold out.
Please note: some of the original cut-up-collages for the Swiss exhibition are still available from Trapart: https://store.trapart.net/item/4

P-Orridge & Abrahamsson
Genesis Breyer P-Orridge: Sacred Intent
Sacred Intent gathers conversations between artist Genesis Breyer P-Orridge and longtime friend and collaborator, the Swedish author Carl Abrahamsson. From the first 1986 fanzine interview about current projects, over philosophical insights, magical workings, international travels, art theory and gender revolutions, to 2019’s thoughts on life and death in the the shadow of battling leukaemia, Sacred Intent is a unique journey in which the art of conversation blooms.
With (in)famous projects like C.O.U.M. Transmissions, Throbbing Gristle, Psychic TV, Thee Temple Ov Psychick Youth (TOPY) and Pandrogeny, Breyer P-Orridge has consistently thwarted preconceived ideas and transformed disciplines such as performance art, music, collage, poetry and social criticism; always cutting up the building blocks to dismantle control structures and authority. But underneath the socially conscious and pathologically rebellious spirit, there has always been a devout respect for a holistic, spiritual, magical worldview – one of “sacred intent.”
Sacred Intent is a must read for anyone interested in contemporary art, deconstructed identity, gender evolution, and magical philosophy. The book not only celebrates an intimate friendship, but also the work and ideas of an artist who has never ceased to amaze and provoke. Also included are photographic portraits of Breyer P-Orridge taken by Carl Abrahamsson, transcripts of key lectures, and an interview with Jacqueline “Lady Jaye” Breyer P-Orridge from 2004.
