'Salt Water' exhibition at The Tall Ship 16 April - 20 June 2010


As part of Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2010

Friday 16th April - Sunday 20th June 2010

The Tall Ship, 100 Stobcross Road, Glasgow, G3 8QQ

Daily 10am - 5pm. Admission free

Preview Saturday 17th April, 13:00 - 16:30pm. All welcome.

Salt Water is a group show and publication featuring new work by artists and writers from the UK and abroad in response to the history of the Clyde-built sailing ship, the Glenlee. The exhibition will take place at The Tall Ship and will form part of Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art 2010.

Curated by Angela Beck and Talitha Kotzé, Salt Water brings together the work of Kristina Bengtsson, Linda de Canha, Helen Edling, Levi Hanes, Conor Kelly, Kendall Koppe, Fiona Short and Emmett Walsh to explore the layers of maritime history reflected in the Glenlee's various functions (as freight transportation, training ship, and museum), cultural contexts (Scottish, British, Italian, Spanish), and material manifestations (original construction, engine-fitted, ruined, restored). It is a collaboration with artists whose practice is concerned with unravelling obscure, forgotten histories and those who are interested in circumnavigating the globe - on a boat, a plane or from their armchair.

A publication will accompany the show featuring the writing of Louise Briggs, Neil Cooper and Adrienne Van Eeden-Wharton, all with different cultural and disciplinary backgrounds to explore an icon of Glaswegian and Scottish maritime history.

Unveiling, Andro Semeiko, 3 April -23 May 2010, Berwick Gymnasium Art Gallery

Unveiling, Andro Semeiko, 3 April -23 May 2010, Berwick Gymnasium Art Gallery


Andro Semeiko

3 April -23 May 2010

Opening: Sat 3 April 2:00-4:30pm

Book launch Unveiling: Rocket MT2010, Sat 15 May 2:00-4:30pm
Free copies will be available at the launch and from: www.androsemeiko.com/unveiling

Andro Semeiko has made the body of work to document the secret creation of a space rocket designed to fly to Mars. 
Built by a secret society, work began underground in the 17th Century and has been ongoing for three centuries to meet 
the launch date sometime this year! The secret society has employed experienced miners from the Forest of Dean, who 
had previously helped the English to capture Berwick-upon-Tweed from the Scots in the thirteenth century. The miners 
have dug tunnels that stretch under the river Tweed to the village of Spittal, which is to be the actual point where 
Rocket MT2010 has been constructed. Specially trained rhinos were also shipped in from India to help out with the 
excavations. The final preparations for the first flight of the Rocket MT2010 are about to commence. The secret society will 
select fifteen lucky people from Berwick-upon-Tweed to man the rocket on its maiden voyage. They will experience the 
lovingly crafted Mock Tudor rocket, where things are on a miniature scale but have a grand appearance! Every detail of 
the rocket has been considered by the secret society. For example, the crewmembers' urine will be reworked into a 
delicious drink and their nail clipping will be processed into spacey porridge. The secret society has integrated itself into 
all levels of the community, enabling them to deny and cover up any rumours that the chimney at Spittal point is in fact 
the tip of their rocket. Can anyone stop the launch of this Mock Tudor rocket? What is the secret society's unknown 
quest to Mars? And why are the people of Berwick-upon-Tweed being offered this unique experience?

Project Unveiling consists of an installation in the Gymnasium Gallery and an artist book publication. The installation 
contains paintings, sculptures, drawings, blueprints, models, a slideshow and several items from Berwick Museum 
and Art Gallery. It operates in contemporary art context by using mechanisms of archival documentation as well as 
theatrical methods of delivering a narrative. The blueprints of the Rocket MT2010 are developed in collaboration with 
Pierre Maré Architects. Life size model of the rocket is built in collaboration with aircraft engineer Simon Heald
Artist book Unveiling: Rocket MT2010, 48 pages, edition of 500, tells a linear narrative with layered visual meaning. 
It features images created and compiled by Andro Semeiko, and texts specially written by Neil Mulholland 
and JJ Charlesworth. It is edited and published in collaboration with Basement Art Projects.

Andro Semeiko is a Georgian artist living and working in London. Exhibition Unveiling is part of his Berwick Gymnasium 
Fellowship 09/10. Semeiko studied at Tbilisi State Academy of Arts (1998), HKU, Utrecht (2000), Goldsmiths College (2001) 
and Royal Academy of Arts, London (2006). He has exhibited in New Contemporaries 2001, Camden Arts Centre and 
Sunderland Museum (2001); Shine, The Lowry, Manchester (2002); Sotheby's Auction, London (2007); Two Hopes, Tbilisi Opera 
and Ballet Theatre, Georgia (2007); Kunstvlaai, Amsterdam (2008); Expander Painting, Prague Biennale (2009). He was 
awarded Kunstanjer 2000 (NL) and British Institution Prize 2004.

Alexandrite - at the Collective by Tessa Lynch

Tessa Lynch | Alexandrite

Performance, Sunday 11 April 2010. Book now.

Tessa Lynch is in residence at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena (EICA) at Ratho working on her project Alexandrite, produced by Collective. Alexandrite will commence with a one-off performance at EICA, on Sunday 11 April followed by an exhibition in the gallery from 13 April to 23 May 2010.

Tessa's performance acts out the dual qualities of the diamond Alexandrite, a diamond which shines green in daylight and red in incandescent light, a naturally formed element that has the ability to be two things at once. This idea is explored in various ways throughout the performance and looks specifically at the the duality in the works of the Dada artist Francis Picabia recalling his 1924 ballet, Relâche.

The performance has been devised through a series of workshops run by the artist and attended by the performers. The performers are made up of the EICA audience and Collective's audience who all contributed to the creative process of the work.

“Lets all Gorge Ourselves at the Love Feast” is an assent to the divine testimone by a passively received assimilation of the Glasites[1] <#_ftn1> , (“Things strangled and blood" were rigorously abstained from. They disapproved of all lotteries and games of chance. The accumulation of wealth they held to be unscriptural and improper”).[2] <#_ftn2>  The meetinghouse reflects the nature of Glasite worship, with an upstairs Feast Room for the Sunday love feast, and a main meeting hall with prominent central pulpit for preaching-centered meetings.

“The First Judgment” by Thomas Aitchison depicts four angelic silhouettes arranged in a hierarchical structure by way of virtue. Here jealousy and mistrust hold centre stage above a soft-core tableau being carried out in the scene beneath. This love triangle, or “manage a trois” gone wrong, contrasts roman paganism to modern day alliances and social situations. “New Town Window” echoes the windowless exterior on the reverse side of the wall so being because of the pre 1851 window tax which prompted many owners to block up their windows to avoid higher rates. The waxed cotton surface of this painting is at opposite poles to the daubed on colouring, levitated to the foreground by the underlying wire assemblage.

Tim Le Breuilly's pulpitic performance will encapsulate the drama of the surrounding space. Referencing classical themes such as the fable of Medusa a spinning clay head takes centre stage.  The clay head was produced during adult learning evening classes and as so references the wider community whilst subjugating the role of the heroic artist to that of traitor and displayed on the castle ramparts.

A large timber framework supports eight images facing out from the centre of the hall. Above them wooden banners proclaim - all elements of image and structure are interlocked, in a self-supporting/perpetuating psycho-dramatic cycle of Murray as the artist.  “Lets All Gorge Ourselves At The Love Feast” by Stephen Murray, is an installation that directly engages with the architecture and history of the meeting hall as well as the notion of the construction of myth/image/meaning. Is this structure an attempt to understand the different nuances of narcissism reflected from a muddy pool, or is it simply an absurd fabrication - a kind of Gil Martin[3] <#_ftn3> meets Max Clifford and Uri Gellar in a mental health wood workshop in Huntly type of scenario.

The exhibition runs from 3rd of April, then 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th of April, at the Glasite Meeting house, 33 Barony St, Edinburgh. Open 1pm-5pm.

Conference, 1 May 2010, Radical Complicities: Curating Art in the 21st Century


Saturday 1st May 2010, 10:30am - 6pm (registration 10am - 10.30am)

Early  booking recommended.

Speakers: Beatrice von Bismarck (Academy of Visual Arts, Leipzig), Nav Haq (Arnolfini, Bristol), Maria Lind (Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, USA), Sarah Lowndes (Independent Curator, Glasgow), Bojana Pejic (Independent Curator, Berlin)
Introduced and chaired by Angela Dimitrakaki and Kirsten Lloyd (The University of Edinburgh)
Organised by The University of Edinburgh and presented in partnership with the National Galleries of Scotland, this conference brings together leading figures in the field to consider the potential and limitations of recent and emergent curatorial paradigms in contemporary art.
Over the past two decades, curators have risen to a new level of prominence in the artworld, challenging received hierarchies to define the narratives that frame our understanding of what art is and what it can do. During this time we have also witnessed an expansion of curatorial practice, contributing to shifts within art, its institutions as well as the broader social developments which have marked the transition from the 20th to the 21st century. Does this expansion of curating correspond to new, radical forms of agency in contemporary culture or is it complicit with a new administrative regime? Reflecting on practices not necessarily sanctioned, or indeed visible, through the institution, this one-day event with international and local speakers will discuss a range of approaches and geographical perspectives.

Venue:  Hawthornden Lecture Theatre, National Gallery Complex, The Mound, Edinburgh

Tickets:  £8/£5 concession (students) available from the information desk at the National Gallery Complex or call 0131 624 6560 9:30am - 4:30pm, Monday-Friday. Early booking recommended.

ARTSCHOOL/UK is getting ready to welcome its selected participants and contributors in a few weeks' time: Adam Knight, Alice Evans, Aliki Panagiotopoulau, Daniel Pasteiner,  David Mollin, Elizabeth McAlpine, Habib Asal, Jedsada Tangtrakulwong, Kevin McPhee, Klára Orosz, Marijn van Kreij, Melanie Russell, Micha Patiniott, Michiel Ceulers, Min Joo. Rita Evans, Romeo Gongora, Ruth Höflich, Sibylle Feucht, Sissu Tarka, Vaishali Pathak, Alicia Paz, Andrew Hunt, Banu Cennetoğlu, Becky Beasley, Caroline Achaintre, Céline Condorelli, Christian Jankowski, Dan Perjovschi, Francis McKee, Gail Pickering, Hans Ulrich Obrist, Klega, Malin Stahl, Markus Vater, Matthew Poole, Michael Craig-Martin, Oliver Klimpel, Paul O'Neill, Pavel Büchler, Phyllida Barlow, Rainer Ganahl, Richard Wentworth, Rosalind Nashashibi, Ruti Sela / Maayan Amir, Sophie Hope.

The becoming of ARTSCHOOL/UK is an ongoing and dynamic process. ARTSCHOOL/UK, founded in 2009 by John Reardon, in collaboration with Sabine Hagmann and Johannes Maier has developed a project, which begins from a place of not knowing what artists need to know to make what artists make as art. In this spirit of not knowing, we attempt to create an environment in which a range of interests and influences can be brought together.
ARTSCHOOL/UK and Cell Project Space commissioned Céline Condorelli to design the physical framework for this to happen within Cell Project Space. The adjustable spatial setting, called Revision, Part II, has been build with the help of Cell's technician Stewart Gough and interns, Andrew Mason, Grace Wills, Shula Subramaniam, Ana Ballesteros and Verena Schwarz. Designed as a 7 unit modular based system, Revision, Part II can to be used in a number of different ways. The mobility of the units enables physical flexibility, creating opportunity for participants and contributors to invent scenarios and possibilities for how to speak and learn together. Revision, Part II can be flat-packed for easy transportation to future applications of ARTSCHOOL/UK.

Before the start of our three weeks' intensive programme, we are happy to invite the public to the launch of Revision, Part II at Cell Project Space.

Artist Talk
Saturday 13.03.10

Blind Alchemy delights in the 'home-made' nature of alchemy rather than its wide possibilities. Adams and Giles have been intrigued by the alchemy that colours the everyday with its magic: nettle wine brewed at the bottom of the garden, then gulped down in the haze of twilight - it may not be the elixir of life but as the mind swirls and the ground seems to lift away there is no doubt that chemistry has its uses.

One of the pursuits of the alchemist, turning lead into gold, lies in the no man's land between scientific procedure and magical reaction. Turning nothing into something is a key part of both artist's practices. Rachel uses cheap throwaway materials to investigate the line between painting and sculpture whereas Ian's work focuses on performative acts dealing with image making and transformation of the body. Doing an act 'blind' also hints at the process of collaboration, conjuring ideas of experimentation, accident and trial, which are undertaken in any artistic partnership.

The artists started working together in the form of a blog called 'This to Follow That', which became a image essay where each artist posted an image everyday, creating a visual dialogue. From this start point, the artists have researched the underlying themes and concepts within the blog to create a new series of works.

Ian and Rachel will hold an artist's talk on Saturday 13.03.10 - 15:00

eca research seminar series


with Torsten Lauschmann, Dr. Martin Parker, Dr. Robert Dow and Dr. Neil Mulholland, University of Edinburgh and Edinburgh College of Art

Noise happens ... in music, in art, in life. Composers, artists and performers join together to discuss sound and hearing across creative practices that recognise sound has moved beyond the concert hall, the recording studio and the gallery and into all aspects of our creative lives.

Torsten Lauschmann is an independent composer, sound artist and film maker based in Glasgow. Martin Parker is a composer, sound artist, improviser, director of the University of Edinburgh's MSc in Sound Design and recently premiered his opera for cinemas, "Songs for an Airless Room", featuring Phil Minton and Joby Burgess. Robert Dow is a composer of acousmatic music and a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Edinburgh. Neil Mulholland is Director of eca's Centre for Visual and Cultural Studies.
