    novels stamped on the wall Kambalu s new novel Tattoo City is placed against an assemblage of artistic vocabularies Joseph Beuys Lee Appelby Jochem Hendricks Sigrid Holmwood Kevin Hunt Rei Kakiuchi San Keller Sam Mukumba David Newbatt Hardeep Pandhal Nicolas Pople Poppy Whatmore Intermingling African heritage with narratives of modernity these works contribute towards an inter textual and polysemic encyclopaedia of spiritual thought The resulting panorama of mysticism and contemporaneity is largely inspired by Rudolf Steiner s ideas on freedom interiority and humanness the so called athroposophy Evoking an amalgam of illusions dreams and memories tattooed on the skin of the mind Tatoo city underscores the dialogue between the cultural landscape of Africa and its western projections Joseph Beuys spiritual interpretation of materiality Ja ja ja ja ja nee nee nee nee nee gives the tone to a vortex of artworks that tend to connect the symbolic imagery of the black continent with the progressive vigour of the West from Pier Paolo Pasolini s cinematic plan to direct a Greek tragedy in central Africa Appunti per un Orestiade africana Notes for an African Oresteia 1969 to black white snapshots of Western doctors inspecting the ill bodies of black people African experience becomes a map of hybridizations and bipolar contrasts The local and the international the rational and the irrational the spiritual and the scientific create a flux of dynamic counter positions and fusions The novel s central theme the story of Waldorf an African female rock star who turns to philanthropy emblematizes this aesthetic and cultural chaos The tension between the primitive and the progressive the African and the Western encapsulates Kambalu s philosophy of holyballism Inspired by Joseph Beuys ideas on art and spirituality this is an attempt to recover the holiness of objects experiences and memories beyond the

  • Review: Ernest Edmonds – Light Logic, Site Gallery, Sheffield | Corridor8 —
    the show There are a number of responsive works in the show Below the screens a tiny camera feeds back movement to a programme I am affecting it as I move in to examine the colour it senses my movement the image moves flickers back interrupting my view it is looking back The most impressive of these is the specially commissioned light sculpture Shaping Space 2012 that fills the second gallery Again the cameras analyse audience movement which subtly affect the pink and red shapes on the two screens Events are set in motion in time not to be undone but will go on to influence the way the next set of events movements are received interpreted and used to create the light colour shapes Like a primitive eye reading the environment this artwork flickers into live and lives It is like a person storing up a lifetime of experience taking every interaction with it It is beautiful As a painter I must confess that some of the work rubbed me up the wrong way just a bit It reminded me of the first time I looked closely at a Mondrian and was disappointed by roughly painted edges Jasper A and B illustrate the point made about needing a new medium Looking at the awkward gaps between the painted forms it is clear that paint just isn t working anymore I can see the appeal of moving from static to time based work The video work Jasper 1988 delivers the same set of overlaid squares in motion with more success The risks are greater though if you don t programme well the whole thing falls apart Looking around I become aware of gaps in my art history knowledge particularly around computer art and the British Constructivist movement of the 1960s

    the remnants of an extinct society which seem to give human evolution a bit of a kick whenever they are discovered Similarly Modernism was responsible for a revolution in cultural terms that has been impossible to ignore Ireland s painting in contrast to the grandiose soundtracking in 2001 that occurs when anyone draws near to one of the monoliths emits a melancholic music a super slowed version of Beethoven s Moonlight Sonata stretched to keep pace with Neil Armstrong s time spent on the lunar surface The noise indicates we are in the presence of something not inert but it is not a statement of intent as much as an introduction to the possibility of action The void object reverberates with the sense of its own potential even as a remainder to affect us one way or another But this action requires human contact the object needs an audience for its story just as the 2001 monoliths need the proximity of humans or their forebears in order to activate It is this idea of activation that allows Ireland to draw parallels between space on all scales both the space of the universe and that of the gallery His work in this show takes in both and draws out their similarities as sites for action and interaction Space outer rather than gallery has for over a century been a seductive setting for fiction Space is to a certain extent an unknown entity upon which it is easy to project a story It sits for the most part or so it seems to us most of the time in a position of inactivity something we only think about when confronted with events like the Apollo missions or the recent landing on Mars of the Curiosity rover It is activated briefly in our

    I let go and let it wash over me There were nine presentations mostly eccentric collections of weird and wonderful stuff Dave Charlesworth attempted a performance that was a work in itself perhaps deliberately over performed and has left me with an image of William Shatner in his mustard yellow Star fleet jersey The 20 favourite Davids by me was a bit of a novelty piece Bowie Lynch and Attenborough were obvious choices for waxing lyrical Jill Green had found a set of family photos unseen since the 60 s Memories were the prized possessions here a stream of consciousness flowing out in her narration There was a collector of fans Vanessa Haley a collector of Virgin Mary figurines Paula Chambers and someone who had so many pineapples that she actually looked a bit like one Sally Sallet Two were examinations of on going projects Jessica Longmore s was a careful and analytical look back over an artistic process explaining and sorting out the motivations and results of a practice spent in artists studios and Anne Cunningham talked about The Art House s plans to move into a listed library showing and sharing the problems and challenges they face which raised a number of interesting questions Unfortunately the Pecha Kucha process allows little time for group discussion which would have been useful A musical element gave the evening a feeling of cabaret During his presentation Phil Moody played an accordion and shouted out words in an unrecognisable language while Jill Green had a guy on a cyberpunk style electric bass playing alongside her The highlight of the evening was The Crofton Silver Band who played two numbers during the interval a march which was truly exciting and a soft warm ballad Having all of this wonderful stuff together in one
