Guy Mannes-Abbott has written about writers and thinkers from across the world for The Independent, Guardian, New Statesman and other publications. He has written catalogue essays on contemporary Indian art, speculative essays about London and taught at the AA School of Architecture in London. He is the author of a series of widely published texts - poems, stories and aphorisms called e.things. They first appeared alongside the art of Wolfgang Tillmans, Sarah Lucas, Liam Gillick and others, and inspired films by artists including Cerith Wyn Evans and Jeremy Deller. A selection of e.things and his account of a journey into the interiors of Gujarat, India, are forthcoming.
