  • Review: Poor Souls’ Light anthology launch ft. M. John Harrison, John Rylands Library, Manchester | Corridor8 —
    s name Having edited New Worlds magazine during the late 1960s and early 70s he emerged as one of Britain s best SF and fantasy writers with the Viriconium sequence of novels Harrison has a particular liking for the kind of weird fiction inspired by the Welsh writer Arthur Machen who in the 1890s explored the link between landscape myth and the occult in stories like The Hill of Dreams and The Great God Pan These atmospheric tales led Harrison towards his impressive and haunting novels The Course of the Heart and Anima in which the fantastic and the erotic merge together in settings that also include Pizza Expresses and Hillman Avengers Manchester Morecambe and Camden Town But he is equally at home in the hard SF worlds explored in his Kefahuchi Tract sequence of novels Light Nova Swing and Empty Space The John Rylands reading celebrated the launch of a new publication Poor Souls Light Seven Curious Tales a collection of ghost stories for Christmas by writers who alongside Harrison include Jenn Ashworth Tom Fletcher Richard Hirst Johnny Mains Alison Moore and Emma Jane Unsworth Harrison entered the main Reading Room dressed in denim and with his long grey hair tied into ponytail and introduced his contribution to the collection entitled Animals which he intended to read Or at least most of it titillating his audience by breaking off around two thirds of the way through and encouraging people to buy the book on the way out if they were eager to know the ending which is exactly what I and many others did What we heard at the time was wonderfully creepy the account of a nervous woman taking a holiday in a decidedly dodgy cottage where she hears the voices of some very unpleasant previous residents After

  • Review: The Other Room | Experimental Poetry in Manchester | Corridor8 —
    all three adopted a different approach to the performative aspects of poetry Karen Mac Cormack opened with readings from some of her published collections including Marine Snow At Issue Against White and Tail Light before moving on to new unpublished things One remark she quoted about innovation stuck with me Without it tradition would reign supreme This was true especially of her poem What s At the End of Everything a piece that sounded rather like a science fiction story full of data times cryptograms and Fed Ex codes describing how a new passport travelled from one country to another Another poem TY PING from which Mac Cormack read one extract is written in the form of script continuo where all the words run together it felt like breaking into a stream of energy only to be cut off from it again when she stopped Toronto based Sheffield born Steve McCaffrey is an ex member of the sound poetry group the Four Horsemen He reads sitting down behind a table because of general wear and tear and because I wanted to look like a newsreader which works well when reading a poem like Names from the Phone Directory Buffalo consisting of actual names listed according to themes like birds or the chromatic spectrum Three Poems Deliberately Spelt Wrong brought further laughs as did An Incredibly Edible Poem With British and American Content which featured popsicles testicles something to suck on not likely to be featured on this season s Masterchef An Example of a Pataphysical Poem based on Alfred Jarry s concept the science of imaginary solutions included lines one to three on loan to the Museum of Modern Art and various other lendings I also liked Perverse in particular the line Monotheism always implicates the poly vocal By the time he reached Oedipus Meets The Abstract Machine McCaffrey was in true TV presenter mode when delivering the words Smells like a huckleberry Nissan up your nose Final guest for the evening was Claire Potter who devised and programmed the recent four city series of events Shady Dealings With Language addressing the theoretical and practical relationships between art writing and performance She also edits Soanyway a website collecting words images and sounds that tell stories She herself is a natural storyteller and an amusing one But her work exists partly in the world of contemporary performance art as she demonstrated with the piece she proceeded to deliver with the warning I m working from the floor which was literally true Her written piece was typed using a manual typewriter on sheets of shiny card and as she showed us the type was totally redacted with a black marker pen By kneeling down and leaning forward on the floor microphone in one hand she read the words on the card by their typed indentations reflected by the lighting on the surface of the blacked out card The poem was long involved drilling a lock selling futons and a pizza delivery franchise

    the way that the artists and artworks are perceived Simply from a logistical standpoint bringing fifteen artists together in such a small space and without an overarching theme risks a chaotic messy exhibition not unlike a degree show But these same factors also hint at the excitement these emerging artists must feel to have been included For them a nomination functions as a seal of approval from the art establishment The artist s names sit alongside those of their nominators each becoming inseparable from the other This list of names is one of the first things apparent to the viewer and listing the nominators alongside the nominees affects the way that you see the work Almost instinctively you look out for the artists nominated by figures that you are familiar with You may be unaccustomed with the work of Josh Bitelli and Felix Melia but the omnipresence of Hans Ulrich Obrist may colour your perception of their work However the most important factor in the nominator nominee relationship is that the fifteen nominators provide fifteen separate visions of the future therefore while the artists may not exist independently from their nominators they do exist independently from one another and more importantly so do the nominators If the exhibition were curated by a jury of nominators working together we might be offered a vision of the future that suits the agenda of the jury The 1997 Turner Prize had an all female shortlist in response to the all male shortlist in 1996 while last year year Glasgow School of Art nominees dominated This is not inherently negative but by its nature it is limiting and in a show such as this that tasks itself with looking to the future it is right that nominators work independently That being said it is
