Ep.210b Steve Lowe / L-13 - Minstry of Arts Podcast (pt.2/2)

PART 2/2

In this episode Gary Mansfield speaks to Steve Lowe founder of L-13 (@l13lightindustrialworkshop)


Private Ladies & Gentlemen's Club for Art, Leisure & the Disruptive Betterment of Culture

The L-13 Light Industrial Workshop is not a gallery, a publisher, nor do we represent artists. Neither are we a real Ladies and Gentlemen’s Club, a Light Industrial Workshop, and we most certainly are not an art collective.

Founded by artist Steve Lowe in 2003 – initially under the name the aquarium (2003 – 2006) then THE AQUARIUM L-13 (2006 – 2008) – the L-13 Light Industrial Workshop is a creative platform, spiritual home and technical epicentre for a small group of artists that Lowe has found himself working with – both in collaborative venture and by way of support for the individual artists. The L-13 HQ in Clerkenwell is also physical home to the Harry Adams studio, an 1825 Albion Press, The Patented Finger of God Painting Machine and a miniature poodle known as The Beast.

We like making special things at prices people can afford and will subsidise our own produce where we think necessary and appropriate. We also like to make and sell special things that cost lots of money for people who can afford it. The sale of such things helps us subsidise those less lucrative projects.

The key artists currently active with L-13 are:

Harry Adams, Jimmy Cauty, Billy Childish and Jamie Reid
