Peter Saville continues his collaborations with Anna Blessman with a new series of works which playfully subvert normal ideas about what constitutes a work of art. Small signs with legends such as "This exhibit has been temporarily removed and will be returned as soon as possible" and "Object removed for photography" become the artworks themselves.
Saville and Blessman's Art Accessories (along with some Saville solo work) will be exhibited in the upcoming Art 14 show at the Olympia Grand Hall in London from 28 February until 2 March 2014.

Post punk cult band The Names emerged in the winter of 1977-1978 as The Passengers, gathering immediate attention on the local Brussels scene. In 1979, after a series of successful gigs and a crucial step forward opening for Magazine, they recorded their first E.P. ("Spectators Of Life") and attracted the interest of prominent label Factory Records in Manchester.
Their first British studio session (at Stockport's Strawberry Studio) produced the single "Nightshift" / "I Wish I Could Speak Your Language (Fac 29). Receiving enthusiastic reviews in the UK and abroad, it marked the start of a long and fruitful collaboration with producer Martin Hannett. The album "Swimming" followed as well as more singles, including "Calcutta" and "The Astronaut".
