Press Release

"Either Taking It Out Or Putting It In"
Opening Wednesday February 22, 2006. 8:00 PM to 11:00 PM
For a few days only!

The George and Dragon Public House is very pleased to present an exhibition curated by i-cabin entitled "Either Taking It Out Or Putting It In".

i-cabin is the most exciting artist run space in North London, showing a very cool generation of artists most of them born in the 1980s. i-cabin has operated since October 2004 from a makeshift office in a bookbinding factory in North London where the wooden units look and are named like cabins, due to the fact that the two brothers who own the building used to be naval merchants in the old days.

For the evening at the George and Dragon, i-cabin will be planting a tree in the White Cubicle, this is to stay there until Friday. There will also be some interventions within the pub, two functional chairs especially designed for the pub, i-cabin beermats and a lightbox in the window.

Rich Cash from Xerox Teens will be in the DJ booth!

i-cabin has shown the work of Mathew Incledon, Alec Steadman, Darren Norman, Giovanni Manzini, Juliette Blightman and Sebastian Craig. Other artist's they have worked with include; Margarita Bofiliou, Christina Mackie, Chris Bird, Ian Evans, Anthony Silvester, Brandon Alvendia, Amy Sharrocks, Cerith Wyn Evans, Anonymous, Lloyd Sowerbutts and Hannah Watson. They also did a Project for Zoo Art Fair in 2005.

The director's of i-cabin are Juliette Blightman and Sebastian Craig. All projects are funded exclusively by i-cabin and its collaborators. Juliette achived notoriety at the George and Dragon soon after her first visit two years ago, when her beautiful blonde curly hair went up in flames accidentally lit by Mr. Cerith Wyn Evans. This was I-cabin's first art contribution to the George and Dragon. We hope this performance is not repeated tonight.

The White Cubicle Toilet Gallery measures 1.40 by 1.40 metres, is located within the Ladies Toilet of the George and Dragon, and works with no budget, staff or boundaries. White Cubicle has become one of the East End's most exciting and ambitious exhibition spaces, presenting a discerning programme of international manifestations as an antidote to London art world's post-romantic art scene. Past exhibitions have shown the work of Deborah Castillo, Gregorio Magnani, Butt Magazine, Federico Herrero and Terence Koh.
