    free standing sculpture The sprawling installation of a PVC pipe sculpture Before Charge 2012 recalls the mid twentieth century sculptures of Anthony Caro and Eduardo Paolozzi Painted white with a thin green veneer the structure unveils what is usually hidden out of sight Through this exposure Before Charge references a tenet of New Brutalist architecture which was characterised by the exposure of functional elements such as pipes and air ducts Hidden speakers inside the pipes ends emanate spoken word one side recounting the legend of Alderley in Cheshire and the other apparently giving a recitation of Jungian archetypes The accompanying four works are mounted words written in cursive and composed of lead Using templates carved by hand Biagioli poured molten lead into the moulds to create text which she then mounted and framed At once light hearted and serious the text works imply the lead of a pencil which has been expanded onto a surface The work Prostitute Magician Veiled Child Her Visibility Collapsed 2012 suggests concrete poetry with its emphasis on the visual rather than the textual and its invitation of multiple readings Using Carl Jung s theory of the collective unconscious as a point of reference Biagioli selected

    The final title sequence concludes the story stating that the professor never returned to University and the tapes remain the only evidence of his final research trip In discussion with Houghton it transpired that the tapes were actually found by himself and Matthew and the narrative constructed from their initial viewing of the footage watching hours and hours of exotic wildlife to finally see the filmmaker step into shot The film is beautifully crafted but the knowledge that the back story is a fiction opens up a new interpretation of the entire video The ARKA group was founded by Ben Jeans Houghton and Matthew de Kersaint Giraudeau with the premise of creating a collective of multi disciplinary individuals working toward a collaborative research practice discovering and disseminating information through new visual synergies Their latest film The Ocelli can be seen at Spaceinbetween Gallery London 03 03 07 04 12 http www benjeanshoughton co uk http www dekersaint co uk Kate Liston Practice Maintaining 2011 6 28 minutes Kate Liston s short film is a fast paced textual narrative that guides the viewer through observations of Stephenson s Works the locomotive factory of Rocket inventors George and Robert Stephenson Liston s film focuses on the little known fact that George Stephenson was also the inventor of the cucumber straightener using a combination of stills and moving images the imagery seeks out reoccurring parallel lines in the Stepehnson s Works the train tracks double yellow lines outside the works the thick walls of the glass straightener The disjointed pace as well as the relationship between the string of visuals forces the viewer to read the narrative in a different way one that challenges a normative structure Contrasting masculine and feminine forms Liston playfully juxtaposes a rigid scientific objectivity with her own subjectivity
