Mike Absalom
My Irish Eyes on Liverpool Again

'After a lifetime roaming the globe as a successful singer/songwriter, Mike Absalom
returned to his roots in Ireland and has become a successful artist, painting the people and places of his family’s past.
This year he set off from his studio in County Mayo on a pilgrimage to visit and paint some of the other places that once played a significant part in his life, to see how they had changed and to find out how he felt about them and himself forty years on.
Liverpool, on its 800th birthday, was one of these places and his journey he has yielded stunning meditations on place and identity. Expressions of a past that remains, soaked into the stones, ready to remind of what once was, but also suggest what might be.'

Matei Bejenaru, Travelling Guide, 2006

Matei Bejenaru, currently artist-in-residence at the Romanian Cultural Institute in London, takes part in the Tate Modern group exhibition The Irresistible Force. The exhibition looks at how economic forces shape our lives, as cultural values and traditions are realigned by global capitalism.
Also featured are international artists Conrad Bakker, Tim Davis, Claire Fontaine, Mika Rottenberg, Michael Stevenson and Judi Werthein. The exhibition is curated by Ben Borthwick and Kerryn Greenberg.
Matei Bejenaru's contribution is a Travelling Guide which includes information about the Romanian nationals who attempted to work illegally in the UK before Romania joined the EU. The work was shown in 2006 at Thyssen-Bornemisza Contemporary Art in Vienna and in 2007 at the Prague Biennial 3 and at the Galeria Posibila in Bucharest.
Matei Bejenaru is a visual artist and the founder and artistic director of Periferic Biennial in Iasi, Romania. His art projects in recent years have focused on the situation of Romanian nationals who live and work abroad.

'Making Stuff' at the Kitchen Gallery

The Kitchen Gallery's exhibition continues until 30th September.

Introducing an inspired blend of contemporary and conceptual crafts focusing on ceramics, with textiles, jewellery,

accessories and objects by established and emerging artists selected for quality and originality.

Artists showing work are:
Cath Ball
Nicole Bartos
Katie Downs
Claire Ferguson
Laura Hughes
Sarah Jane Lawton
Sarah Malone
Isabelle Reaves
Mojdeh Piri Pirnagh
Charlotte Verity

Making Stuff is such an exciting exhibition, because, not only does it represent a diverse a range of contemporary craft practices but it presents artists who are using their craft to be both technically and conceptually innovative. All ten artists have an exploratory approach to their practice seeking to push the boundaries of their craft to produce decorative and functional art objects and I believe that the work on show reveals the exciting interface between craft and design.

We hope that you have been inspired by the diversity of contemporary ceramics, textiles and jewellery making represented in Making Stuff and that you will continue to draw enjoyment and inspiration from the work on show for the final two weeks of the show.

This is the last exhibition of the 2007 season at the Kitchen Gallery, we look forward to welcoming you back in 2008.

Opening times Fri-Sun 1.30-4.30 and by appointment.

"Qi gong is also known as Chi Kung, or Kiko in Japanese. Qi gong is the ancient Chinese art of energy training or practice. "Qi" (Chi) means energy and "gong" (Kung) means work or practice. In China it is used in traditional hospitals and clinics to treat a wide range of conditions from arthritis to cancer. Millions also do qi gong exercises to boost vitality, to insure against disease or to fight chronic conditions. Its energy methods are also an integral part of Tai Chi, many martial disciplines, as well as Taoist and Buddhist practices. In the West qi gong has only recently become known (over the last 20 years), but it may be the oldest of all the Chinese healing arts with roots tracing back over thousands of years. Other Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) members include acupuncture, T'un-na (a predecessor to Japanese Shiatsu) and herbal medicine." (extract from: "Qi gong: An Introduction" by Christopher Caile.

Cornerhouse, Manchester
BBB Johannes Deimling: Don’t Hurt Me (durational performance)
John Bock: Kleinodtotsod (video)

Cornerhouse, 70 Oxford Road, Manchester M1 5NH | www.cornerhouse.org

German artist BBB Johannes Deimling’s work often involves the physical attachment of objects to his body to unsettling effect. These Acted Images evoke unconscious fears using an undercurrent of bizarre humour. For his performance, Deimling will make interventions into the public spaces of the Cornerhouse building, enacting his performance Don’t Hurt Me.
Deimling’s invoking of the uncanny through the abject is echoed by Kleinodtotsod, a video work by John Bock that hints at the malevolent nature of domestic space. Kleinodtotsod will be installed as a large-scale looped projection in the Cornerhouse gallery for the duration of the day.

"Summer of love"

@SouthBohemia Gallery, Smithdown Road, Liverpool

click here to view enlarged leaflet

Featuring Marjana Wjasnova, David Hinnebusch, Joseph Brown, Daiva Gauryte, Nicole Bartos, plus others.

Research Information:
The Summer of Love was the summer of 1967, particularly in the Haight-Ashbury district of San Francisco, where thousands of young people loosely and freely united for a new social experience. As a result, the hippie counterculture movement came into public awareness.
The beginning of the Summer of Love has popularly been attributed to the Human Be-In at Golden Gate Park on January 14, 1967. The size of that event awakened mass media to the hippie counterculture that was blossoming in the Haight-Ashbury. The movement was fed by the counterculture's own media, particularly The San Francisco Oracle, whose pass-around readership topped a half-million at its peak that year. The grassroots street theater/activism of The Diggers also garnered media attention.
College and high school students began streaming into the Haight on their spring break of 1967. City government leaders, determined to stop the influx of young people once schools let out for summer, brought added attention to the scene. An ongoing series of articles in local papers alerted national media to the hippies' growing momentum. That spring, Haight community leaders responded by forming the Council of the Summer of Love, giving the word-of-mouth event an official-sounding name
John Phillips of The Mamas and the Papas took 20 minutes to write the following lyrics for the song "San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)": If you're going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair... If you're going to San Francisco, Summertime will be a love-in there".
Scott McKenzie's recording of the song was released in May 1967. The song was designed originally to promote the June 1967 Monterey Pop Festival, the world's first major rock festival, which was attended by over 200,000 people. "San Francisco" became an instant hit (#4 in the U. S., #1 in the U.K.) and quickly transcended its original purpose.
Album cover, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club BandThe evolution of The Beatles and their music also contributed to the global impact of the Summer of Love. The Beatles' album Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band was released on June 1, 1967, in Europe and two days later in the U.S. With its psychedelic influences, Indian instrumentals, vivid album cover and drug references, it encapsulated the very essence of the Summer of Love.
The Beatles had moved beyond their "moptop" era, and on June 25, 1967, their song "All You Need Is Love" was heard around the world as part of the "Our World" radio broadcast, further emphasizing the countercultural ideals of love, freedom, and unity.

Education and Outreach
A Triangle Arts Trust Workshop
A Foundation hosts: COAST

In 1999 and 2001 two UK international artists workshops took place near Barmouth in North Wales. These workshops, called Cyfuniad were co-ordinated by Lin Holland and Becky Shaw, together with a working group of artists, primarily based in Liverpool. The two Cyfuniad Workshops collectively brought together more that 45 artists from around the globe to live and work together for periods of two weeks.
The workshops had a profound impact upon many of the participants and their practices and led to Liverpool artists being invited to India, South Africa and Brazil for residencies and further collaborative experiences. Cyfuniad is part of a global network of workshops based on the Triangle workshop model which over the past 24 years has extended to more that 30 countries world-wide, with more that 3,500 artists participating.

The 2007 Liverpool workshop titled COAST, will see 25 artists, 15 from around the world living and working in Liverpool for two weeks. The workshop will be based in The Furnace and Blade Factory Buildings on Greenland Street and will culimnate in an open day where members of the public will be invited to meet the artists and see work produced.
Discussion - Wednesday 15 August 2007 from 19.00 - 21.00

The Art Organisation Liverpool
Invites you to Wolstenholme Projects Up&Coming Show

'Eyes, Lies & Stories'

In an arena familiar with the grab of the grand aesthetic, 'Eyes, Lies and Stories' focuses on the playing out of basic illusory effects and knowing lies in the production of some art-experiences. The exhibition plays on the mechanisms that urge a conscious suspension of disbelief in the spectator, upon the construction of a possible agreement that encourages more active engagement in the processing of experience and artistic narratives.

This project takes inspiration from incomplete simulations, in the acknowledgement of the concerned artist(ic) imposter, and in situations where anxieties about the unreliability of vision can be accepted as a starting point.

Highlighting the necessity to go along with trickery within artistic experience can reflect the usage of lies in encouraging engagement with reality (think dramatic narratives used in fly on the wall documentaries), and through letting the spectator in on the pretence/staging, a refusal to alienate that spectator's power to act/react is asserted.

The show aims to bring together artists, whose practice engages in some of these issues of trickery or sleight of hand, employing these methods as a point of departure offering alternative takes on experience.

Featuring works by Savinder Bual, Karen Logan, Karen McLeod, Jamie Moakes, Alix Poscharsky, and Brychan Tudor.

'Eyes, Lies & Stories' will launch on Friday the 10th of August, this show also features live performances from 6.30pm until 9.30pm. Running until Sunday 26th August. Opening times 12-6pm Thursday to Sunday.
