  • Review: Bob Cobbing: ABC in Sound, Exhibition Research Centre, Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool | Corridor8 —
    monochromatic prints of concrete poetry where the visual arrangement of the words helps to convey meaning and rhythm Text is repeated and layered and manipulated into geometric shapes Cobbing demonstrates a fascination with language in all its forms explaining in one of the videos the pictorial qualities of language and how a letter might be seen as an abstract painting The same visual approach to text can be seen in a case of front cover designs for the book of ABC in Sound which were made by his wife Jennifer Pike a significant partner in artistic collaboration The poet s concern for the imagery of lettering provides further context for the archive ephemera on display here Homemade writers magazine mock ups from the 1950s sit alongside a linear red noticeboard a nod to the one Cobbing used as a pinboard at home for his ideas dotted with copies of flyers and vintage newspaper clippings to form a textual timeline of his many projects and collaborations A wall is given over to posters of performances by Cobbing and his contemporaries in many cases the only clue to the year of their production is the font used hinting at historic typographical trends The vinyl lettering that curves around the posters spreading in waves onto the windows lends a haphazard rhythm to the layout The playfulness in Cobbing s work is always evident and often infectious It is hard not to laugh out loud at the absurd sequence of similes that plays upon fellow poet Liz Lochhead s A good fuck makes me feel like custard displayed here in one of the square partition panels His lively 1980 performance of Alphabet of Fishes in Liverpool is also particularly enjoyable both for the local context and the pure relish with which he booms the

  • Review: Tim Hetherington, You Never See Them Like This, Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool | Corridor8 —
    the wrong image for that particular context The exhibition comprises of three parallel collections of work acting as a peculiar narrative for the experience of war Firstly Infidel 2007 2008 a word frequently used in intercepted communication and the mildest of names used by Afghans when speaking with the American contingent Tim and the soldiers identified themselves with this label tattooing themselves with the word This group of work demonstrates that the apparent clash of civilizations works both ways Images of tattoos war symbols religious and national symbolism used within the military language and which soldiers use to commemorate their colleagues marks their progressions and also reveals the attachment intimacy and the sense of togetherness Tim and the soldiers experienced This collection of work also includes Tim s world press winning photo a weary disheveled and emotionally embedded image of a soldier Tim in an interview revealed Getting close to people is the hard bit once you re close to someone then making an image is not hard The second part of the exhibition Sleeping Soldiers 2009 2011 includes images of soldiers sleeping and juxtaposes the intimate tender moment of sleep with action of war and emphasises an uncertainty and vulnerability the fragility of being asleep and the fetal like positions act as a metaphor for childhood Tim s photographs express camaraderie affection solitude homesickness and male vulnerability They also intrinsically refer to the traumatic experience of war which is markedly evident in his video installation within this section of the exhibition The horrific sound of military action and gunshots pervade the gallery space motionless images of the sleeping soldiers perceptibly contrasted with footage of military combat generating an unquestionably disturbing yet insightful piece with reference to the experiences of the men at war Lastly Diary 2010 an extremely personal

  • Review: Holly Rowan Hesson – Residency, The Penthouse, Manchester | Corridor8 —
    the UK Hesson moved into the space at the beginning of September without any preconceived ideas I only ever start with an empty room and my camera and then see what happens from there The heightened attention that being dropped into an unfamiliar setting brings is the motor for Hesson s practice What did happen was that Hesson began to latch on to certain details messy little patches of intrigue in a structure that from the outside appears demurely rectilinear This space appears to be a white cube but it isn t really it s full of intriguing bits A photograph of a light switch intentionally outoffocus is one of the images that hangs in her workspace when I visit it is a snapshot of the light switch just inches away on the same wall encrusted with various layers of whitenotwhite paint which Hesson refers to as an abstract painting She is also drawn to the casement windows both in her own studio and in the project space outside which she sees as picture frames A photograph featuring the top of a building set against a grey Manchester sky testifies to the strange anomic pictures these frames seem to usher into being though this is consistent with Hesson s approach I m always looking for something but then I often obscure what I find Eventually Hesson will use these impressions to produce an installation for this project space although her process of exploration will continue until the last possible moment I ll only know it s right at the very end which is a bit stressful but that s how it works for me Photographs taken in the space blurred from the outset will be further estranged from their referents by means of the projector set up in the corner

  • Review: The Third Quarterly Leeds Weirdo Club Exhibition: The Lucky and Unluky Eskape by David Steans, and other works by Matthew Crawley and Harry Meadley, Leeds | Corridor8 —
    the adjacent wall to the loungers are two sets of sunglasses one pair in yellow and one pair in blue By installing at head height the work cleverly inverts the projection of vision The visitor stares into a pair of use less lenses who don t stare at you but only reflect your image and in the case of the blue pair which have mirrored lenses a microcosmic postcard of the exhibition These titular works of the show are fascinating in their comical self consciousness and Ballard esque conception that the Brits Abroad holiday is an episode of disillusionment An eerie impression of otherness can be found in several other works The most intriguing of these is Poor shells a collaborative sculpture between Crawley and Steans which comprises of cast paw prints previously left by a cat in the drying cement outside the studio They are fragmented and apportioned around the space as broken footprints Aesthetically and conceptually they suggest memory and trace they are evidence of two distinct creative acts one nonchalant the cat s paw prints physical affinity with sea shells the other decidedly intentional the casts are pinned at unrealistic heights across the studio The physical act of creation is also called into question by Crawley and Meadley s The Devil s Castle Initially the sculpture looks to have been made out of plaster of paris or has been given that effect and sits on the grey floor as if on a monochromic beach The work is in fact made from lightweight ready mixed poly filler which although materially impossible appears to have been turned out in one solid piece The suggestion that sinister forces were at work is evident from the works title where the childlike quality of sandcastle making is subverted and an absent maker
