  • Article: Bedrooms and Bombsites – Matthew Crawley’s Life Cycle of a Mould Mite (2015) and Thomas Hirschhorn’s In-Between (2015) | Corridor8 —
    open the dresser drawers soon takes over It feels lived in and at the same time eerily staged Evidence of its falsity is well concealed the radiator is made of wood its magnetic alphabet stuck on with blue tack When the curtains of the single window are drawn a view of the studio shatters the illusion For the duration of the show the only way into the studio was by crawling over the bed and through the window returning the viewer to the real world and exposing the backstage of Crawley s installation Life Cycle is about identity and familial bonds and how the spaces we grow up in reflect and embody our changing personalities A phase of Brady s development is memorialised freezing the traffic of mementos magazines and colour schemes at a particular point in time While some of these objects continue to reside in Brady s room which incidentally she lived without for the duration of the exhibition many of them had to be reintroduced or reconstructed Now 16 the artist s daughter collaborated on these aspects colouring some Moshi Monsters to replace those that had previously populated her wall In this way the work is both a memorial a kind of time capsule and a reimagining of a lost moment a fake Its poignance lies in the fact that Brady and her parents cannot return to this moment Life Cycle succeeds at the point of failure in the very effort and exertion of trying to capture experiences and things that have passed Months later visiting the South London Gallery to see Hirschhorn s In Between in its final week I was again struck by the sheer ambition and level of detail of the installation which towered spilled over and filled every corner of the main gallery Inspired by Antonio Gramsci s words Destruction is difficult It is as difficult as creation the work is one of a series in which Hirschhorn explores the aesthetics of ruin and disaster using the media s barrage of disaster images as a reference point The result is an oddly beautiful space light filtering through a perforated tarp onto heaps of debris webs of hanging wires and projecting crossbeams A closer look reveals that much of the rubble is sculpted from cardboard painted black some with faux brick patterns Toilets still attached to their plumbing dangle from exposed upper floors As I was leaving the gallery a piece of styrofoam fell from the ceiling prompting an invigilator to gasp horrified It was comical This art ruin must not be allowed to fall further into ruin Hirschhorn continues a legacy of artificial ruins that can be traced back to the nineteenth century they epitomise a fascination with the ruin as a symbol of fallen civilizations of human achievement and hubris toppled and reclaimed by nature of apocalypse All these associations are of interest to Hirschhorn but more centrally he is concerned with what it means to be in between creation and destruction

  • Review: DANCEHALL 11, Castlefield Gallery, Manchester | Corridor8 —
    seating with the exception of a stage area for performance which was clearly designed as such Brief things is a piece where the individual viewer is given total authority over how to activate it as an artwork the nature of its open invitation meaning that the artists themselves offer nothing and take no responsibility Tom White s piece for the exhibition Inventory sees him working with deaf actor Stephen Collins to produce a sign language inventory of objects within the gallery space presented as an audio recording removing the visual stimulus of sign language and leaving us with only the fragmented sounds that accompany it It is an intriguing proposition leaving us with the unintentional audio accompaniment to a visual form of communication as we hear various popping shuffling and breathing sounds emanating from Collins It leaves the viewer questioning the role of sound within sign language and how it might relate to visuals such as gesturing within speech With Stone Circle Giuseppe Mistretta similarly examines the boundaries between sight and sound where his film in two parts shows an actress describing the sensation of wearing a pair of noise cancelling ear defenders and then repeating this process while wearing blackout goggles While she wears the ear defenders she seems to mirror the viewer as you stand there with your headphones on to listen to the film In this section she speaks less than when wearing the goggles perhaps as a reaction to not being able to receive audible communication while she speaks more when she can t see perhaps to reassure herself that she s not alone Taking place within a stone circle in the midst of secluded woodland Mistretta brings to mind notions of mysticism and magic enhancing the sheer strangeness of having one of your senses temporarily
