    series of cultural actions which are documented creatively These actions are determined to re engage new generations with their environment The hope is to bring about awareness on the issues facing these communities uncovering a collective history in the process This exhibition remains in a state of progression where we can immerse ourselves in both community made artworks and ongoing research Admittedly it s not easy to immediately grasp the location of the art work as a whole Initially the research format seems fragmented But this exhibition isn t a quick fix instead it requires attention and time in which the viewer can undergo a process of engagement with the issues at hand It also requires an imagination one which can work with the community to imagine new ecological relationships to their land This kind of piece works best when a fundamental autonomy of the communities is realised the artists instead taking a more curatorial role Although facilitated by Wu Mali Bamboo Curtain Studio Films this exhibition facilitates this autonomy arguably allowing the community a more immediate agency in writing their historical ties We see past present and future trajectories of the communities stretching their actions across history and rooting them in their land Plant Matter Needed documents a collaboration of social activism between the residents of the Sa owac village dwelling and artists Hsu Su chen and Lu Chien ming The Sa owac village dwelling faced demolition by the local council with this exhibition following a period of protest and reconstruction through videos texts and objects presented within a reconstruction of one the Sa owac dwellings The rebuilding of the Sa owac dwellings signifies an attempt to not only practically preserve the tribe s cultural space but for those engaged to re define their socio spatial relationships collectively This

    referential or pseudo SJ There s been a lot of attention given to the absence of pictures in the show Can you explain more about the decision JMc It s more a kind of emptying painting of image foregrounding other concerns instead the medium s physical material properties and behind the scenes elements its grammar and engagement with space over the pictorial and finally our perceptual relationship to the made and found DC The blankness and open endedness of the monochrome soon became an integral part of our thinking as it allowed for an emphasis on colour tone form weight and material concerns all of painting s basic components but without image We began to see how the works could relate to each other formally and within the gallery s architecture Whilst this particular kind of work is already well established in America and Europe it s less so here The British painting scene is generally more rooted in a pictorial referential image based culture SJ A couple of the works even seem to empty painting of paint I m thinking for example of Adriano Costa s carpet based piece Piece 2014 or Jo s own Yellow Yellow 2015 Can your explain their inclusion DC Adriano and Jo s contributions are perhaps the most difficult to fit neatly under the bracket of painting Although Adriano hasn t used paint in this particular piece there have been references to its gloopy shape and descriptions of the carpet strands as being like individual brushstrokes not to mention it s also wall mounted His work conflates painting and sculpture residing in the gap between the two JMc Yellow Yellow started off as a silk scarf and old M S t shirt two flat rectangular monochromes pinned to the studio wall I was interested in how they related to the painted surface and transmitted and absorbed light By tying the two together they lost some of their connection to the everyday and became simply the colour yellow which then became its form Yellow is a physical colour It has an inherent strength and complexity its own presence and certainty The examination of colour its physicality how it operates is an entirely painterly concern Yellow Yellow does not aim to represent something else but simply declares its own presence SJ The Castlefield Gallery is quite an awkward space architecturally What role does it play in the exhibition JMc All the pieces were chosen with the space very much in mind We wanted to make the viewer feel distinctly present through playing with closeness distance and scope For example David Goerk s Red Wand is hidden behind one of the pillars at certain vantages but then springs out from others due to the way in which red operates The work has great presence despite being so tiny Simon Callery s Auricle 2012 is situated deliberately at the entrance to the gallery so that it functions in a physically confrontational way where it can only be seen
