This event is postponed until further notice due to the coronavirus.
On 2 April 2020 Swedenborg House will collaborate with Goldmark on an event launching Our Late Familiars, an unforgettable and unsettling book with photographs by Ian Wilkinson and writing by Iain Sinclair. Our Late Familiars is published by Goldmark and includes sixty-seven colour photographs by the artist Ian Wilkinson, taken in the catacombs of Palermo. To the haunting images of the catacomb dead he has added bird skeletons, creating ambiguous, curious tableaux. Iain Sinclair’s accompanying text takes in both the decaying majesty of Palermo and the destination of the dead. Goldmark is an art and ceramics gallery, film producer, book publisher, printmaker and scholarship hub.
Join us for the launch, which will include a short film, talks and a drinks reception. RSVP by emailing
