—"The Gate of Ishtar I have built with blue glazed bricks for Marduk, my Lord … Marduk, sublime Lord … eternal life … grant as a gift."Huge in scale, Minimalist in form, Charles Harlan’s industrial work took over Venus Over Manhattan in the form of a fence without an entrance and a wall protecting nothing. A facsimile of the Pergamon Museum’s original publication, Ishtar chronicles the history of the original gate from its removal from the Middle East, installation in Berlin, to its newest iteration in Harlan’s recent exhibition.

The pair review the band’s seminal album The Wonderful and Frightening World of The Fall track by track, revealing the group’s uniquely brilliant disarray.“The Fall have been around for a very long time, still going, influenced so many other groups, and have released any number of great records over the years. You’d think that one of them would have merited a slim volume by now, but no, the twats at 33½ were too busy putting out books on Radiohead, The Stone Roses, Patty Smyth, and U-fucking-2.”

It’s a sequence that can be traced back to 2008, when the female body first started appearing in his sketchpads and on his canvases. Her sudden appearance seemed millennia away from his early abstract work, so how did he find her? How did she spring into existence?”
