  • Review: Hannah Collins, BALTIC, Gateshead | Corridor8 —
    photographic paper are layered together to make one work This removes the element of perfection that is generally presented in photographic display Instead the precarious nature of the work is apparent It seems as if one may collapse at any moment Walking through to the room on the left is an entirely different experience from the first room It s like entering another exhibition Highly suggestive of a scientific laboratory vitrines with photographic collections and pressed plants are laid out akin to specimens for research and experimentation Most of the vitrines are hip height others are closer to floor level This play on height and relation to the human body s proportion contrasts nicely with the flatness of the images in the previous room In both spaces the viewer is free to navigate the exhibition as they please there is no clear direction The contents of the vitrines play with tactile sensibilities the imagery within depicting vibrant greenery such as photographic details of large fan like leaves to beautiful flowers whose scent is hinted at through its lively colours The photos display a wonderful two dimensional jungle that is just beyond reach Two floor level vitrines contain entirely different matter They contain dead plants Opening an dialogue of deforestation on one level they could be hinting at what is to come for the photographed jungle They present a sinister air which is lightened by the fact they look so temptingly tactile The urge to reach out and touch to play with them and to hear them crack as they break up into pieces is difficult to resist Yet the use of vitrines reinforces a museological context Text fragments are screen printed onto areas of the wall the green text is neat and scientific in its presentation yet whimsical and poetic

    were to live in a place like Navarino even a small change has the potential to disrupt a cultural mentality During Pfeifers 4 month long stint in the southernmost city of the world an astonishing amount of experiences were gathered and artwork made but for the first two months Pfeifer wouldn t even point a camera at his hosts Two months the artist observed embraced and involved himself in all matters and manners that the inhabitants experience on a daily basis Looking at manual and industrial labour the remnants of the indigenous Yaghan people in Katushaiwa and exploring the nightlife on the edge of the world are just a few of the activities Pfeifer involved himself in When the cameras were finally set up to film they captured some of the most immersive and alluring scenes you are likely to see this year The three channel video system contains images of beautiful landscapes untouched by man and the cold bleak industrial docks of the island Packing and shipping crabs caught by the local fisherman the natives have evolved from their recent past tribal nature and into the the industrial world A lonely native sits in his metal shack with a 1 5litre bottle of Coca Cola clearly visibly as if the product placement had been purposely on show This isn t the case it s only due to capitalisation s bold colours and abrupt branding that it stands out so prominently Pfeifer uses this to cleverly show how infectious the global brands are and how far they can really reach It isn t just the narratives that take centre stage it s the people too Their tools were previously harpoons and Pfeifer has a replica showing just past the front entrance that emphasises the Museum Culture of defining a large

  • Review: Kelvin Brown & Jacob Robinson, The Ten Commandments, The Newbridge Project, Newcastle upon Tyne | Corridor8 —
    find the remains of the set from Cecil B Demille s 1923 film The Ten Commandments which were buried beneath the sand dunes of Guadalupe once filming was finished These replicas of the architecture of Ancient Egypt have themselves become the subject of archaeological digs Whilst the majority of Robinson and Brown s film does not feature these ruins they are seen in the opening shots their presence is felt throughout lurking beneath the sand and creating a lens through which to view the unfolding narrative The story of the biblical Ten Commandments upon which the first third of Demille s film is based is reflected in one of the discussions between the two narrators The enslavement of the Israelites is replaced with a revealing of the dark history of Guadalupe s Japanese Community being incarcerated after the bombing of Pearl Harbour The second narrator expands on this through his discussion of the repetition of history the once great Ancient Egyptian society is reduced to Hollywood artifice which is in turn buried beneath the sand and the community that currently presides on top of these ruins dwindles as local businesses fail and the population decreases Visually all of the narratives are viewed through imagery that pays homage to the cinematography of its source material and in turn questions the nature of artifice and truth It is the fine details in the work that nod to these ideas that make it such a compelling piece for example the images of the monster trucks themselves a stand in for the chariots of Demille s film which are then themselves replicated by a shot of a young girl driving a toy version in her family s drive way Overall The Ten Commandments makes carefully conceived links between weighty ideas whilst not sacrificing any

  • Spotlight: ‘Do we need to grow up,’ The Newbridge Project, Newcastle upon Tyne | Corridor8 —
    space was established to help support artists in the early stages of their creative careers and provide them with the opportunity to exhibit and develop their creative practice Over the past five years The Newbridge Project has remained true to this ethos which has allowed local artists to thrive in a critical and collaborative atmosphere Nevertheless the space has continuously evolved and has changed rapidly morphing into an ever expanding creative environment as well as now housing eighty artist studios and one large exhibition space it recently established an independent bookshop which again has proved an astute addition to the space Yet contrary to their pioneering success The Newbridge Project s residency in their 29 000sqft office block is currently under review by the local council with one very real very ominous prospect being that this wonderfully innovative art space could be replaced by a luxurious department store Precarious survival is an all too common plight for such avant garde initiatives so the symposium provided a brilliant opportunity for all involved to share ideas and concepts on sustainability because although they may display comparable creative models they all embrace very different funding aides Each of the guest speakers gave a short fifteen minute introductory into the history of their spaces and the successful growth in which they have gone through This included presentations from Grand Union Birmingham Castlefield and Federations House Manchester Star and Shadow Cinema Newcastle East Street Arts and lastly NAC foundation Foundation B a d Rotterdam The audience too were invited to participate in discussions with many reiterating a reoccurring theme during the event which is how important and influential such creative spaces can be to the local community It was a topic that was also explored by Rotterdam s NAC foundation Foundation B a d who

  • Spotlight: ‘Ten’ & the evolution of Vane Gallery, Newcastle upon Tyne | Corridor8 —
    once an office block in the centre of Newcastle Now a successful commercial gallery Vane represents a broad circle of artists based regionally nationally and internationally Vane s journey has been a remarkable and exciting one Although being composed of merely two staff members means a lot of work and responsibility this enables Vane to remain personal Ten is proof of this An exhibition named in celebration of Vane s tenth birthday it features the work of nineteen artists all represented by the gallery Viewing the work of nineteen artists all in one gallery space would usually equate to an overwhelming experience Instead Ten is tastefully hung and minimal It showcases Vane s diversity and dynamism perfectly teasing the viewer of the potential of each artist it succeeds in leaving you with the appetite for more In an odd equilibrium Kerstin Drechsel s explorations of the maternal bond between mother and daughter sit by Michael Mulvihill s monochrome apocalyptic styled works Simon Le Ruez s fragile sculptures have the appearance of melted glass crumpled and left out to dry yet in actuality they are composed of an assortment of materials and are temptingly tactile Dodda Maggý s kaleidoscopic film is both mesmerising and hypnotising The sense of falling into and being submerged by its symmetrical shapes as they shift across the screen is tantalising Matthew Smith s installation is instantly dominant upon entering Vane Rock sculptures spill across the floor and create a natural barrier for the viewer to remain behind A film of Smith shows him removing a rock from somewhere in the Lake District and replacing it with one of his sculptures The audio fills the entirety of the room Even around the corner as you confront the work of Stephen Palmer you can still hear the soft
