    to be made of concrete or has been given that effect and is a hollow cube with the corner cut out revealing an impossibly dark interior The typewriters toning in with their surroundings in shades of teal red and grey contrast sharply with the gaping cube in their midst Meanwhile a vaguely mechanical rumble in the background emanates from Matti Isan Blind s other work Stolen Identities 2013 a mirror that jitters as if shaken by an earthquake or a passing HGV With Rebecca Lennon s film We Are Stuck Together Part Two 2010 and Elisabeth Molin s Suspension 1 2012 this sense of quivering movement is reasserted and embedded awkwardly within vaguely recognisable situations In We Are Stuck Together Part Two a figure is depicted on television trembling in the road making for unsettling viewing as we become bystanders and voyeurs lacking in agency and powerless to help Then in Molin s Suspension 1 projected low to the ground on a blackened sheet of paper a short scene of bubbling liquid is repeated and becomes cauldron like in its threat of impending turmoil Throughout the exhibition objects from the archive are interspersed with strange quasi domestic arrangements and neat modern display cases Franziska Lantz s Untitled mothclothdress 2013 a blocky garment patterned with bursts of deep grey is hung from a coat hanger on the wall above an old fashioned leather seated chair and next to Atlanta 1970 71 a small photograph which depicts an androgynous glowing figure The composition of dress chair and photograph like something from a carefully arranged bedroom sit next to David Wojtowycz s Tomorrow Belongs to You Part II 2013 a series of watercolours which are shown flat in a display case illustrating what look to be moments of pop culture but are ambiguous

  • Review: Black Sun Horizon, The Royal Standard, Liverpool | Corridor8 —
    is more pertinent to the modern male however Evans doesn t intend us to read too much into this explaining each artist was chosen because of what their videos reveal about experiencing the passage of time and the changing texture of boredom Samuel Williams has kept boredom at bay by producing the 5 minute narrative film Natural Habitat using functional items from the home as characters and the English riverside as the scene The resulting video sculpture is an enjoyable cross between Huckleberry Finn and Batteries Not Included From this entertaining start the works become slightly more well boring repetition and obsession their central concepts Dermot and Natasha by Dick Jewell is a montage of footage from BBC Breakfast News distilled down to benevolent gestures flirtatious blinking and awkward tension As the background track by soul group Imagination says No words are spoken the only sound we hear is body talk body talk Viewing this for 43 minutes induces something akin to the sinking feeling of realising you have spent hours refreshing social media for updates Next up is Cory Arcangel s Drei Klavierstücke op 11 a remake of Arnold Schoenberg s landmark early 20 th century piano composition produced by splicing together clips of cats on pianos and resulting in an interesting example of shared videos as material rather than distribution method After Arcangel and Jewell s assault on your senses you might welcome the way the final work Bill Leslie s Perfect Geometry coaxes the viewer into a kind of mantra meditation induced trance using slow moving retro computer graphics Undoubtedly the no frills setting for the exhibition encourages the viewer to spend time with the artworks in a way that would be hard in the distraction rich online world However the real beneficiaries of bringing these artists

  • Review: Paul Becker, CIRCA Projects, Newcastle | Corridor8 —
    the four surfaces referenced in the work s title Becker s intention here bore no relation to the sense of heritage omnipresent in the space focusing instead on the size and sound of a single voice reverberating in the large dimensions of the room The second draft of Floor Ceiling Window Wall Space Release 14 stepped back from performance into written word presenting a re worked and edited version of the performed text as a Risograph print available for pick up from the rather less architecturally loaded entrance way to the gallery Printed as four sides of A3 copy paper the text is confusingly arranged so that initially there is no sense of coherent reading in the formal sense One side is a duplicate of another making for a seemingly endless loop reading of a dialogue that oscillates between the characters of traveller and note taker There are subtle references to the nuances of the existing space interwoven with narratives that swiftly move from one subject to the next a jumpy uncomfortably close writing style reminiscent of Kurt Vonnegut s in Slaughterhouse 5 Modernist literature is a key reference point for Becker s written work and he cites Kafka Samuel Beckett and Harold Pinter amongst his influences The presentation of the text as something to take away a personal object to read at one s leisure is counter acted by a second live reading offering a collective and immediate viewing experience This time the text is read by Becker himself and a second participant their two voices conversationally playing off each other They are seemingly ruminating over the possibilities of a space as though therein lies a what A cabal of some description perhaps and soon descend into supposition unfolding a twisted narrative which culminates in unintelligible phonetics The intimate

    exist In Some Way an exhibition of the work of twelve artists exploring self image and identity in the contemporary Arab world Additionally Open Eye Gallery shows two distinct aspects on identity Works by French photographer Charles Fr éger demonstrate a somewhat unadorned portrayal of cultural stereotypes concerning history and folklore and consequently interrogate the credibility of the photographic image whilst also exploring the nature of male identity initiation to adulthood and the sense of belonging By contrast the elusive work of Eva Stenram reflects the self in relation to the other highlighting the hostility that remains between the self and the representation of one s self Strenram s manipulated images feature the backdrop as the main feature once the backdrop falls in front of the model negating objectification of the body the viewer becomes distinctly aware of their role as the voyeur The Walker Art Gallery hosts three exhibitions including a major project produced in collaboration with the BBC entitled ALIVE In the Face of Death by renowned photographer Rankin These works present the glaring reality of mortality in a touching tribute to survivors of terminal illness and near death experiences Also at the Walker Art Gallery is Double Take by Keith Medley featuring portraits of Merseyside residents from the 1960 s Each sitter was shot twice in the same glass plate creating an uncanny duo once more questioning self reflection and representation Finally Every Man and Woman is a Star a show by Tom Wood and Martin Parr completes the Walker s exhibitions The collection includes the Merseyside works of both photographers as well as Parr s little known Irish scenes and investigates the styles of these influential artists Lastly The Victoria Gallery and Museum presents the brilliant documentary photography of Hong Kong based artist Kurt Tong in
