The publishers of Victoria magazine curated the eponymously titled exhibition at Laurent Delaye, which featured Chain Smoker - Tap Dancer by Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard - a video installation presented on two monitors, at head and floor level - an experiment in self portraiture and an entertaining cross-breed of teenage notions of 'rock and roll cool' and seaside amateur dramatics.

The show stood as a parallel to its newspaper counterpart, reconnecting the art object to its ink-based transitory other self. It addressed the displacement from source to printed matter, location to dissemination and the integrity of the work of art in its transit from medium to medium.

Artists participating in the show were:

Devon Dikeou, Ellen Cantor, Jack Pierson, Simon Bill, Ian Dawson, Sarah Staton, Neil Miller, Emma Kay, Henry Krokatsis, Rezza Arameshi, Iain Forsyth & Jane Pollard, Helen Hayward, Gavin Wade, Simon English, Simon Periton

Issue 2 of Victoria magazine was launched at the private view. Iain and Jane were asked to curate a selection of CD's by artists to feature in the issue. Their selection included Jake Tilson's City Picture Fiction, Antiphony featuring various artists interpreting recordings by Disinformation, We've Got Ken by The Ken Ardley Playboys, Jeremy Deller's Acid Brass and Never More Than This by Iain Forsyth and Jane Pollard.
