    Connection on the pebbles

    It doesn't get much better than this: Iain Sinclair describing the view from his St Leonards apartment, as an introduction to a review of Andrew Kötting's Deadad. These two artist-travellers share a great deal in common. Including their connection with the pebbled beaches of the East Sussex resorts. Sinclair sums up Kötting's extreme / intimate / exaggerated English approach to filmmaking just perfectly when he writes, 'Kötting's art is physical, manic and remorseless: seaside-postcard Herzog.' It's worth subscribing to the LRB for this alone.
