  • Review: Melvin Moti – Hyperspace, Pavilion, Leeds | Corridor8 —
    worth visiting even just on it s own architectural merits The transitory state of the space as it undergoes reconstruction provides the perfect setting within which to screen The Eightfold Dot a film which celebrates and embraces changing structures and re imagining spaces The Eightfold Dot uses the two dimensional medium of 35mm film to explore the inaccessible fourth dimension shifting seamlessly in narrative between dots lines squares and a hypercube whilst scrutinising crystal structures It is no coincidence that this work comes at the centenary of X ray crystallography invented in physics laboratories in Leeds where the film is currently being screened X ray crystallography is a method of examining the core atomic structures of crystals through the diffraction of X rays Melvin Moti s work often hinges on well researched theories and like his 2012 art book on self luminous materials the depth of his research shines through in his work despite the abstracted visuals and silence of the film The film succeeds in leading the viewer on a journey of contemplation of the unknown and indescribable and gently nudges the viewer forward through their own personal series of internal perceptions of the obscure and inaccessible Conceptually transcending beyond the current limits of the human experience The Eightfold Dot flows between scientific enquiry and a celebration of fantasy This projected 35mm film encourages us to rely on the suspension of disbelief in contrast to much of the over enhanced realism of modern cinema and takes on a beautiful nostalgic tone whilst embracing scientific progression and potential future possibilities Moti s brilliant film invites us to look forward and back simultaneously and to try and consider a space outside of time and physical constraints It reaches out to an inquisitiveness that is at the heart of the human experience

  • Review: PAPER #9 – interim, PAPER Gallery, Manchester | Corridor8 —
    has a kind of tight self referential logic that calls to mind some great lost Structuralist film The latter which occupies the most floor space is by Sarbjit Kaur and is actually a conjoined display of three smaller works all untitled Made from crank clay and manganese dioxide Kaur s rough terracotta coloured sculptures of bodily fragments a bust a foot and something relatively indescribable are supposedly a means for the artist to work through her relationship with her father There is a clear line to be drawn between Kaur s work and the work of a sculptor like Paloma Varga Weisz whose figures seem similarly stippled with emotional intensity Both artists more or less merit their accidentally commanding position within this group show The title Interim refers to the partwaythere status of the current PhD students whose works make up the show and there is an implicit invitation for the viewer to turn supervisor and judge the relative mileage of the ideas being put to work Appropriately many of the pieces appear as snapshots of longerterm research projects Simon Woolham s ongoing social historical research into the Wythenshawe area is presented in the form of a series of deeply banal fixed camera shots of residential streets overlaid with a somewhat more exotic procession of oral histories focusing on fighting shagging and shitting off roofs Ralph Mills s installation of charity shop trinkets on a specially installed mantlepiece is both a celebration of the gentle surrealism of vernacular ornament and the precursor to a more rigorous archaeological study into the phenomenon Although they present less superficially openended work there is also bags of potential in offerings by Lokesh Ghai with his recording of a ritual insult song sung by Indian seamstresses whose craft is dying out and Anna Frew whose

  • Review: Chris Dobrowolski, &Model, Leeds | Corridor8 —
    of being an adult in an art gallery you are transported back to being a kid in a toyshop filled with excitement and anticipation This giddy childhood aesthetic runs throughout the exhibition His art represents the days before digital technology shooting footage on super 8 and using vinyl and tape In many pieces he employs the use of toy cars miniature railways and figurines which could all be forgotten in a generation Hence his work has a nostalgic feel that endeavours to preserve the analogue Being seemingly as fearless and naïve as a child himself Dobrowolski has put himself in life threatening situations without a second thought for example building a makeshift hovercraft whose engine exploded and a tea chest airplane which was airborne for five metres before nose diving into the ground Despite these mishaps Dobrowolski carries on having haphazard adventures On the first floor we can see the results of his trip to the Antarctic where in 2008 9 he took up an unlikely three month residency As part of an Artists and Writers Programme Dobrowolski travelled with the British Antarctic Survey to one of the furthest corners of the world with a box of models and toys including plastic penguins Ladybird books and a north pole action man In his recent book Escape he writes about his journey and despite chronic seasickness and some strange looks from the crew and scientific researchers he took photographs of his small models in the vast Antarctic landscape From his expedition he created dioramas staged inside wooden food boxes from the trip using these photographs illustrative painted landscapes and toy models This creates pieces that tangle the real representational and fantasy The centrepiece is a large 12ft sledge made from gaudy gilt picture frames that he unceremoniously rode over the snow

  • Review: Experiment Perilous + Video Jam – Abandon Normal Devices, Liverpool | Corridor8 —
    radio transmission in deep space This fact encouraged the artists showcased to incorporate ideas of technology and communication as well as beauty into their work An excerpt from infamous anthropological documentary Baraka by director Ron Fricke meditated on ideas of mass consumerism and technology on a world scale exposing the victims of modern consumer culture Fricke juxtaposes the bustling speed of New York taxis with the slow steady walk of an elderly man in the orient pitting the old world against the new in a battle for economic dominance Liverpool based collective Ex Easter Island Head performed a live musical response to the piece using multiple pre prepared electric guitars struck with percussion mallets Combining these electronic notes with an array of diverse percussive instruments the group created loops which reverberated around the chapel echoing through the space and enclosing the audience in a musical journey like no other The best short of the night however came from artists Soda Jerk with their film The Time That Remains created using archive material which jarringly confuses modern cultural history Described as séance fiction Soda Jerk stage a series of encounters between the past and future selves of screen starlets Joan Crawford and Bette Davis who perpetually wake to find themselves haunted by their own apparitions and are terrorised by their ageing selves This confusing nightmarish imagery sought a powerful score and this came from band Horrid whose aggressive guitar breakdowns and progressively violent drumming culminated in a crescendo of noise mirroring the hysteria and terror apparent on screen Despite the music being of a genre far removed from the era of either Davis or Crawford Horrid s accompaniment leant this twisted film noir a raw and frantic tone which seemed to spiral out of control and consume the audience s imagination

  • Review: You Are The Company In Which You Keep, The Social: Encountering Photography – Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art & Sunderland Museum and Winter Gardens, Sunderland | Corridor8 —
    military avatars deliver veiled threats humanitarian concern and portent one avatar alludes to an as yet unrealised conflict between the U S and Russia highlighting the fluctuating boundaries of fantasy and reality in our experiences of conflict This idea continues with Melanie Friend s The Home Front series and Craig Ames Other Theatres The former looks at the popular spectacle of the air show and the latter documents sites of Mil Sim a game that gives participants authentic battle experience The next zone focuses on the company we find in urban living sub culture and leisure Martin Parr s familiar playfulness finds itself aptly juxtaposed with Paul Graham s pressing melancholy and the re appropriated photos of John Stezaker compliment the cut and paste techniques of Linder The presence of these established practitioners by no means overshadows lesser known artists Daniele Sambo s Sown series shows transformed green spaces in urban environments The message is one of empowerment and transformation an idea that resonates throughout this section of the exhibition The final company is economic Tim Mitchell focuses on the recycling of something as banal as clothing and at the other extreme a ship While the dismantling of a ship has allegorical connotations in a North East context the meandering journey of fabric presents our perceived charity as part of the chain of consumption At Sunderland Museum and Winter Garden s site there is a theme of ritual the rituals associated with cultural idiosyncrasies and the ritual of photography itself Natasha Caruana s series Fairytale For Sale is a peculiar look at marriage through the images posted by brides wishing to sell their used wedding dresses The self disfigured photos aim to provide anonymity between buyer and seller but inadvertently evoke Baldessari and Stalinist censorship in equal measures As a
