  • Review: Candice Jacobs: EXHALE, Cactus Gallery, Liverpool | Corridor8 —
    a detail of the fronds of a palm leaf an image taken from an Amsterdam travel agents wallpaper Enlarged and devoid of context Jacobs has stripped the source material down to the effective visual shorthand familiar from a thousand travel brochures and implicitly understood the palm tree s promise of Paradise These posters are overlaid with a literal shorthand specifically a phonetic writing system called Gregg shorthand A quick and functional form of communication is transformed here into elegant curved neon lights which echo EXHALE s themes of covetousness with a message that translates as Self centred yet seductive thankyou Small gold sculptures are laid out carefully on a long mirrored table top these are gold plated 3D printed bronze replicas of Fortuna cigarette butts a popular brand in Spain A memory of the artist s own experience of package holidays in the Costa Blanca the rather mundane reality is alchemised into something of value by Jacobs in a comment on the aspirational marketing of tobacco Fortuna translates as fortune and reflecting the allure of the tourism industry presented in the posters opposite The hues and materials used in the exhibition mirrored tables pink window film gold cigarette butts even the gaffa tape holding the posters up is gold combine to create a high luxe aesthetic reminiscent of a kind of ostentatious wealth that seems ever more alien in this age of austerity A solitary paper Starbucks cup is a concession to the reality of consumerism and prompted hushed whispers from fellow visitors about whether it was part of the exhibition or not Bought by Jacobs during her time in Liverpool she worked out that based on average working hours it would be the 1 040 000 th latte made by the barista who served her Unlike the gold cigarette

  • Review: Fiona Tan: DEPOT, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead | Corridor8 —
    hold full sized narwhal tusks and miniature depictions of sea anemones in glass plaster and wire by Leopold and Rudolf Blaschka c 1870 This collection of objects each small enough to fit into the palm of a child s hand make giants of us reversing ideas of the public and the personal Here also is a film of marine specimens in which the narrator speaks of seeing the world through glass of how his dreams as a child were always of the sea and that artifacts in museums speak first of death and only after that of what they once were Exiting the lorry it is possible to watch Leviathan a film based on archive footage of the choreographed stripping of a whale played hourly A recording of the live performance of the soundtrack for Leviathan composed by Calliope Tsoupaki can be viewed via a BALTIC Bitesize film where a bass clarinet replaces the song of the whale view here In the Level 3 gallery dual film installation on opposite walls Disorient 2009 juxtaposes images of place and time Sitting on a beanbag it is possible to simultaneously see Tan s re imagining of ancient objects in a museum depot or repository and images of people living and working in global settings The narrator speaks of the qualities and failings of regions and nations and it gradually becomes clear these are The Travels said to be the tales of Marco Polo s journeys in The Orient The contrasts between images and words highlight issues that remain around colonialism and globalism The mind wanders back to the lorry and its contemporary role as a means of escape for people seeking a new life in the West Finally Inventory 2012 a film montage made at Sir John Soane s Museum in London

  • Review: Real Painting, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester | Corridor8 —
    as its physical presences acts rather like a sculpture On closer inspection the process of painting is revealed in the brush strokes de la Cruz uses and by utilizing this form she transcends the canvas flat surface unleashing paint into a three dimensional space to be viewed from multiple angles Her work mimics human states of mind or emotion and the human size aspect heightens this with Compressed 1 hung at average head height to emphasis this The piece therefore can be anthropomorphized projecting human pain or distortion which contrasts with the serenity of the painted white surface and soothing flow of brush strokes This seems to signal the cathartic process of creating a painting in the slow repetitive build up of layers returning to the exhibition s focus on the process of painting and materiality Another piece that emphasises the materiality of paint is Alexis Harding s Hood 2012 in which the light pink paint seems to ooze down the canvas embodying the experience of paint s fluid quality By letting it wrinkle congeal and drip the piece allows the paint a physical existence and highlights the different material qualities of paint In using varying textures and translucent areas of paint Hood perfectly captures the essence of Real Painting in its expression of paint s capability Whilst Real Painting delivers a critical and highly intellectually engaging exhibition there is a danger of maybe isolating the less art minded visitor due to the curator s assumption of them having an art theoretical background and thus a read of the accompanying commissioned essay Painting qua Painting as noun and verb by Craig Staff is an essential to further explain the concept and ideas behind the exhibition Each artists investigation into the expressive capacity of the materials and processes specific to painting

  • Review: Neck of the Woods, HOME, Manchester International Festival | Corridor8 —
    the pieces and the dice but you are the ones who have to play could potentially become a problem here Writer Veronica Gonzalez Peña who is known for her binding conversational lyricism unfortunately adds to Gordon s unsociable approach to direction Her heavy emotional script in the midst of everything else that is happening on stage is easily confused and consequently looses substance and depth Not that the production was ever short on sensationalism but the Sacred Sounds Woman s Choir support Neck of the Woods through choreographing both acoustically and physically a ghostly pack of wolves in the background Their harmonies and presence are actually a nice touch and are arguably under used Yet lets take a moment to be thankful for the presence of Hél è ne Grimaud who despite sporadically surfacing throughout the performance strokes and stabs her piano keys with such wisdom that she just about manages to keep the whole tension of the drama ticking along Her flailing tempos and unconventional phrasings stand head and shoulders above everything else on display This startling collision between visual art music and drama is well placed at HOME s new theatre whose whole ethos is dedicated to producing questioning and ambitious artistic projects Yet despite its suave best efforts there is a fundamental sadness to Neck of the Woods a sadness that cruelly lands on shoulders of Charlotte Rampling Encouraged to believe Rampling s character is an older version of Little Red Riding Hood she is left with the unfortunate burden of holding together the entirety of the piece Gordon s off stage presence Sacred Sounds Woman s Choir Grimaud s piano Peña s script sadly Rampling is an incohesive conductor Taking only a damp few steps throughout her performance only the literal sense of her being lost
