You Are Here explores the notion of location in many contexts; spatial,
With artists including Nicola Dale, David Lunt, Julie Jones, Jane
The positions of boarders and edges have always fascinated artists. Each of the invited artists showing in this exhibition at the Kitchen Gallery considers these shifting parameters in different ways; by use of objects or paint each artist explores a distinct site to create unique and engaging dialogues on the theme.
Whether the metaphor is mutated toys falling through space (Jane Fairhurst) to explore the distance which our consumer desirables travel to reach us, or the gap between solid and gaseous states (Susan Toler), You Are Here will connect the viewer with a special sense of the artists' perception of place.
Exhibition continues from 27th April to 3rd June.
Opening times Fri-Sun & Bank Holiday Mondays 1.30-4.30 and by appointment.

26-29th of April 2007
RCC - Romanian Cultural Centre in London announces:
One of the most important dates in the Romanian cultural calendar in the UK for the year 2007:
IMPERFECT, FUTURE CONTINUOUS"
The Festival will take place during 26-29 April 2007,
at the Curzon Mayfair, 38 Curzon Street, London W1J 7TY.
The films we present in this year’s edition are:
• Feature films:
12:08 East of Bucharest (Directed by Corneliu Porumboiu;
Cannes debut prize 2006), The Paper will be Blue (Radu
Muntean), Love Sick (Tudor Giurgiu),
The Way I spent the End of the World (Catalin Mitulescu);
Have we made you curious about this, now? If the answer is ‘YES’, you might want to learn more about the Festival and see the full programme, an introduction to the Festival, outlines of the films, biographies and selected filmographies of the directors, and some film critique.
Nothing simpler: just click on the picture above to be redirected to the site of the Festival. Should that fail, please click on www.romanianculturalcentre.org.uk/filmfestival
The tickets for all the films in the Festival are already on sale. Considering the great interest generated by our festival in 2006, we are expecting a good number of cinema fans, so please book in advance, when possible.
The Festival is organised by the Romanian Cultural Centre in London, with The Ratiu Foundation UK, The National Centre of Cinematography, Bucharest, Curzon Cinemas, and The Embassy of Romania in the UK.
‘Why this title?’ you might ask. In short, we have chosen this name because we believe that the concept of the Festival – Past Imperfect, Future Continuous – plays on the strengths and weaknesses of modern Romania. One could say that that single line is a synopsis of the country’s history. We all know what our imperfect past was – communist dictatorship. After 1989, Romania entered years of transition, a transition that hasn’t ended and still has no clear end in sight. Only the entry into the EU has managed to bring a sense of timing to this problem. This is our ‘future continuous’.
The film directors in this festival try to make various pieces of the puzzle fall into place. Our festival aims to present an image of Romania which is unknown in the UK.
At the core of this year’s programme are a number of daring, irreverent, often hilarious takes on Romania’s past imperfect. Many of the film-makers included in the programme invite a meditation on the uses of imagery in the construction of an idea of history and historical consciousness. Some of them touch on the production of historical memory, and on the collisions and collusions among individual and collective memories.
Past Imperfect, Future Continuous is an invitation to see some of the best Romanian films of recent years.

"It's a refreshingly fun show and will be well worth a visit, ..."(Eleanor Hawkridge)
"It is believed that the Hawaiian Islands-Emperor Seamount chain occured as the result of magma from a single well, bursting through weak points in the Earth's crust as it moved laboriously overhead. The volcanoes themselves being no more than holes breached through rock and the islands the violent and sporadic build up of lava.
The centrepiece of the Tuber Volcano exhibition is a beautiful but innocuous fibre-optic flower display. Initially conceived by the artist as the eye of a volcano monster, it is a gentle, if crass, symbol of funnelled power. Thinking of the blossoming Volcano and the Tuber as simple allusions was the beginning of these sculptures. Made of unprocessed and often discarded materials and strung together by a loose logic these scanty and hopeful sculptures are in various states of becoming.
The flower display itself has already passed through the exhibitions 'Objects In Waiting' and 'GIFT' (Daniel Simpkins and Penny Whitehead) as an artifact. These exhibitions' objects used to highlight hidden aspects of artists' practice and the nature of exchange. The fibre-optics now sit surrounded by the art they made possible. The eye of an opening volcano." (Paddy Gould)

An exhibition at The Cornerstone Gallery, Liverpool guest curated by Arthur Roberts from Loop Gallery.
Private View - Thursday 22nd February, 6-8pm
Loop, which is the city's foremost independent promoter of abstract art on Merseyside is bringing this collection together to spotlight the celebration of today’s living homegrown artists.
This pioneering exhibition consists of thirty abstract artists who work in and around the City of Liverpool and have contributed to a new vibrant resurgence of visual arts.
The artists represent a new Avant-Garde which is filled with dynamic colourful energy whose diverse approaches make an inspiring landmark upon Liverpool’s cultural renaissance. The works on show range from colourful painted compositions, print, photography, constructions and sculpture all encapsulating a driving force of intrigue and contemplation.
This show represents the heart of the creative community of Liverpool, these are the artists who highlighted the creative bedrock which Capital of Culture was built upon. When the all flashing and dancing lights are slightly dimmed these are the practitioners who will constantly add colour to Liverpool’s cultural landscape.

"Portraits of Great Composers and Musicians" by Wong Li Xian
Wong has always been very fond of classical music and attends various classical music concerts, holding a pencil in his hand as he listens to the music to capture the image of the musicians. He emphasises that drawing out the musician's spirit is more important than creating photo-realistic images. Wong believes that pens have power to connect with music and that his works, therefore, have a musical resonance.
Portraits include some of the great classical composers such as Bach, Mozart, Brahms, Puccini and Wagner as well as contemporary musicians.
This is Wong Li Xian's first UK exhibition and is curated
by Liverpool-based artist
All works are available to purchase.
