  • Review: Rosella Biscotti and Kevin van Braak – AV Festival, Platform A, Middlesborough | Corridor8 —
    is moved around its squares and parks in order to serve and legitimize the political tendencies of the day Installed in Platform A on Middlesbrough s Railway Station the works share the space with the gallery s twin steel pillars stamped with Dorman Long a Middlesbrough company name seen on steel bridges and structures from Newcastle upon Tyne to Sydney Australia Each of the sculptures also has a dual form and a doubling of global and local Moving to the right on entering the gallery Alexey Sakhanov House of Culture Moscow uses as a trigger a heroic depiction of a Soviet miner and the tools of his trade The sculpture s original elevation on a plinth literally and figuratively separating it from the everyday can no longer act as a centre of power Wright 2010 to intimidate viewers Instead here we loom over its two conjoined rectangular bronze forms that now appear like an aerial view of the flat roofed houses familiar to us from war footage on TV Similarly the small cubes of gilt bronze opposite the gallery s windows Vladimir Lenin and Karl Marx Stasi Museum Berlin play with our perception of how an object s scale affects space and self telescoping the viewer Gulliver like into Lilliput Their closed forms each slightly different in height and width seem to offer detailed portraits of the ideologies of their original subjects in a miniaturised condensed form Perhaps the most successful piece and that most relevant to its site is Industry and Construction Green Bridge Vilnius formed as two cast iron rectangular pillars weighing 902 kg Almost touching one another the rough surfaced pillars can be read as echoes of Middlesbrough s most famous Victorian ironmasters the inseparable Bolckow and Vaughan who ran the area s metal based economy from

  • Review: Thomas Bayrle – All-in-One, BALTIC, Gateshead | Corridor8 —
    was also when the competing ideologies of Western capitalist consumer democracy and Soviet communist economy split Germany into two separate states of East and West Yet for Bayrle there was little distinction between these ideologies in terms of how both presented ways of organising and distributing production which is something he has celebrated over and over almost as if such forms of organisation are a given part of human nature In the work Ajax 1966 regiments of cleaners are mechanically animated evoking the large scale communist parades in the image of a western consumer product Bayrle develops this idea through graphic works that repeat and transform capitalist consumerist militarist and communist motifs into hallucinogenic and transcendent incantation such as La vache qui rit 1967 Der Tiger 1969 and Telephone AT and T 1970 Bayrle s poetic contemplation upon human nature and mechanised production is distinct from Anglo American experiential representations of consumption while American and British pop artists revelled in the the sensory experience of mass consumerism Bayrle and fellow German artist s like Kraftwerk serenade the infra structure and machinery of production and distribution for example in Kraftwerk s celebration of limitless automobile travel in Autobahn 1976 contrasted with the Beach Boy s hedonistic Fun Fun Fun 1964 Even sex and sexuality in works such as Fire in the Wheat 1970 are depicted like a coupling within a machine or engine with a purpose beyond either love or gratification Like the Thomas Scheibitz exhibition held at Baltic last summer All in One demonstrates an artist committed to using their art as a tool to divine meaning and reason from the workings of the world Bayrle s generation had emerged from the homicidal excess of totalitarianism which also brought virtual annihilation of cities populations and infra structure W G Sebald

  • Review: Joanne Tatham & Tom O’Sullivan – DOES THE IT FIT, CIRCA Projects, Newcastle upon Tyne | Corridor8 —
    The building is the current home of CIRCA Projects and rented to a number of design companies that occupy office pods within a vast regenerated industrial space that also serves as a venue for regular food and cultural events Dominating this space is a cartoon face on a giant rainbow house like structure constructed by Tatham and O Sullivan The structure appears like it has materialised from a Nintendo la la world and through it s size casts an uncanny affect over the other events and cultural initiatives taking place within the space This is one of a series of critical interruptions deployed by Tatham and O Sullivan that seeks to deconstruct veneered assumptions regarding sites of contemporary art production against the imperatives of cultural and economic regeneration In a small room adjoining the main space are hung a series of black and white photographs showing various sites in Newcastle upon Tyne The photographs are set in heavy wooden frames they are also window mounted in plywood and are accompanied by a printed narrative delineating the relationships between stakeholders link to the Stephenson Works and their locality in the municipal history of Newcastle upon Tyne The text is beautifully written with an underlining wit that holds in contingency the unnamed author s position either cheering the regeneration project or as an ironic commentator about the interest groups and their homogenising cultural outcomes Tatham and O Sullivan have subverted the Space Release programme by disrupting the press release site and exhibition to speculate upon the complex fronds that entangle contemporary art enquiry with the goals of municipal economic regeneration Upon a mezzanine floor is another construction that appears like a video game simulation of the Stephenson s Works architecture and presides over an exhibition of collaborators that gradually gathers and forms
