  • Review: Ed Ruscha – ARTIST ROOMS ON TOUR, Hatton Gallery, Newcastle | Corridor8 —
    paintings prints and photographs that span Ruscha s career Much of the show is dedicated to the word paintings with their slogan like use of text and typography a graphic style of working that he has employed since the early 1960s These works retain an incredible impact and in a world where we are constantly inundated with visual information and advertising from every available medium they seem as relevant now as ever before The first on view as you enter the gallery is The End 40 2003 taken from a series alluding to the final credits of motion pictures complete with authentic scratches and split frames This version is in traditional typeface which has been part obscured by overgrown yellowish grasses It has the appearance of a forgotten grave perhaps it represents a rather bleak forecast for the future of cinema Other more recent typeface works juxtapose sublime mountain landscapes with banal advertising slogans and snippets of dystopian literature in Ruscha s custom font Boy Scout Utility Modern his own reworking of the cult Hollywood signage Hollywood pervades Ruscha s work from his photographic collections of buildings on Sunset Strip and swimming pools to his filmic references Standing in front of a grid of his pool pictures I am struck by how alluring they are They immediately bring to mind David Hockney s glossy California pool paintings yet these are taken at everyday motels not swanky private residences With their lack of human presence they become ripe with the potential for seediness and as with much of Ruscha s work a sense of darkness lies beneath the Hollywood lustre The use of the bland and banal is also a recurring theme which is perhaps what makes his work so appealing His surroundings are the epitome of what many consider to

  • Review: The Universal Addressability of Dumb Things, the Bluecoat, Liverpool | Corridor8 —
    Felix the cat from his 2008 Turner Prize show makes an appearance and in a sense what we see is an assemblage but made with objects and artworks instead of footage his usual medium Bluecoat curator Sara Jayne Parsons says that Mark Leckey is an artists artist he has also been called a pop cultural anthropologist He describes himself as an autodidact which may help to explain his intuitive curatorial approach The resulting exhibition is charming and playful the interpretation is minimal which gives visitors a chance to establish a relationship with an object on their own terms One can enjoy a Coptic jar mummified cat or one of Roger Hiorns beautiful crystal coved engines without having or gaining any knowledge Each section does have a distinct yet surreptitious theme taking visitors on a journey from humanoids to machines The only slightly disappointing part of the exhibition is the gallery upstairs where three films are shown on a perfectly nice periscopic screen The room is too minimal to be an appropriate climax The decision on how much personality to project through curatorial practise seems easier for artists Leckey seems very present here This is one of a series of Hayward Touring exhibitions curated by Turner prize winners and nominees in the past they have worked with Mark Wallinger and Tacita Dean next they are working with Jeremy Deller It is Leckey s most significant curatorial project to date however in a sense everything he does is curated from his films themselves to his Youtube channel The show opens up a refreshing dialogue about the role of assemblage curators and artists in contemporary art his catalogue is very much an artists book A nice touch at Bluecoat is the talks which are being given by locally based contemporary artists This is

  • Review: Rosa Barba: Subject to Constant Change, Cornerhouse, Manchester | Corridor8 —
    machines and structures which deliver culture and there is a curious excitement in being allowed experience this Indeed due to the way in which Subconscious Society is back projected on to a huge screen in the centre of the gallery it is possible to walk around the screen to walk behind the screen and to therefore be behind the scene Then again with Coro Spezzato The Future Lasts One Day 2009 whereby modified 16mm projectors are arranged to mimic a spatially separated choir bodily movement between and around the work is crucial and exhilarating In the official copy Barba s new commission is described as taking the industrial age as its subject a subject which I found to be exposed and illustrated strikingly well with sound On entering gallery 3 the visitor is greeted by the rattle of three projectors running simultaneously and whilst parts of Subconscious Society are accompanied by edited voice overs from the local protagonists of the film there is also a brutal but musical soundtrack which clangs drones and squeals blending in with the live sound of the projectors The way in which these mechanical sounds are accentuated is indicative of Barba s concern with and exploration into the physical properties of analogue film exposing how narratives are and can be constructed deconstructed and represented within the medium As part of Subconscious Society as well as one large projector behind a central screen there are two smaller projectors which beam uneven quadrilateral shapes at intervals on to the lower left and right hand sides of the screen over writing the film with blank creamy light This act of overwriting or multiple exposure is used throughout the film with ghostly figures clambering or stained glass windows hovering serving to further fragment the narrative whilst representing the inevitability

  • Review: James Capper – Divisions, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield | Corridor8 —
    handout Capper cites a number of big figures including Jean Tinguely as important influences This is an interesting if misleading point of reference Tinguely s moving sculptures are colourful chaotic and exciting They seemed to function of their own will lacking control and with an independent animus While some of Capper s designs such as Four Legs Three Teeth 2010 are animal like in their pose they don t possess the same spirit There s a different line of enquiry being explored perhaps it is about use and function None of these machines seem capable of much which is something that adds to their charm The giant claw gently scratching lines in the turf in Ripper Teeth in Action 2011 film was engaging The machine is just so out of proportion to the action and so awkward that I wish I d seen the live performance In the film Midi Marker Sculpture Performance 2012 a strange little machine is led by the artist through mountain shale and then a meadow Its funny little feet fangs drag behind it ploughing pathetic furrows into the ground In the film I thought there might be some kind of strange narrative These scenes are cut in with scenes of nature such as rivers cutting through mountains which was interesting but this wandering off just added to the feeling that the work didn t really know where it was going So this added to the fact that there was just so much work in the gallery and more in the walkway of the main building meant that I didn t know where to look or how to look at this show I was allowed little time or space to consider the subtleties of sculpture and performance the process of making or the idea of machine
