Private Investigation of the Infamous ... Flame Case.
Written by J. D. Graham
27 May 2007

It was typically an uneventful day. I had followed a lead around China Town that
lead nowhere. I tried to speak to the graffiti artists around this part of the
city to see if there had been any sightings of Mothman.
Someone told me a graffiti artists had done an image of the butterfly. I went
and searched, but could not find it, nor any of the artist. I later found out
they had been arrested for spray painting the city.
The past few days, I had been receiving postcards from Greece. I thought they
were delivered to the wrong address, they were still filed in my in tray. Each
card addressed to Miss Papillion, using the office address, contained seemingly
silly greetings, so I ignored them. Messages like: “Guess who? … It’s me! … Be
seeing you soon!”
I had assumed that they were sent to a loved one and addressed here by mistake,
as the office I worked out of also had flats about the building.
Another one had arrived and it seemed just like the others, at first anyway. I
picked up the card it was from Rhodes in Greece. There was no message on the
card. I picked up all the other cards from my in-tray and examined them. All
from Rhodes, Greece. I read over the messages again: “Guess who? … It’s me! … Be
seeing you soon!”
I then looked at the blank one. I wondered whether this was an invitation or tip
off for the Mothman.

I found a place in Rhodes known as Valley of the Butterflies – known as
Petaludes. Jenny told me that Papillion was a film that Steve McQueen was in and
it meant butterfly, Miss Papillion or Miss Butterfly was this some kind of
coincidence or joke?
I spent the rest of the day checking if a Miss Papillion existed. I soon found
she didn’t and on a hunch asked Jenny to book a flight to Rhodes for me. Maybe
this Valley of the Butterflies was his birth place!!?
To be continued …
Petaludes or Petaloudes Valley, or Valley of the Butterflies, where tiger moths
gather in summer. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhodes.

When the City Speaks: The City is the Stage …

Open Submission

Artists will become the flaneur - city walkers for the day - using the urban
space as a stage and the psycho-geographic setting to create art derived and
inspired by it.
To create artefacts of what they have seen, found and experienced and memorised
on the day of the walk. The situation will be an impromptu one, so the work made
on the day will formed from the urban exploration.
The focus will be the city as a hybrid culture and the artists tol examine its
sub-cultures, such as the graffiti artists, tattoo artists, city icons and
whatever is considered as an underground scene, the banal everyday things that
often goes unnoticed and more. The visual language and symbolism in the city
The cultural examinations by each artist will then be represented through a
chosen mode of expression and media on sections of paper to convey their
experiences. This could be through text, painting, drawing, collage,
photography, etc..
This programme will run in three city, starting with Liverpool (UK) in June 2007
moving to London (UK) and then Paris (France).
Liverpool, June 2007.
London, July 2007.
Paris, August 2007.

PORT PERFORMANCE workshop in Berlin

18th - 28th of July 2007

Port Performance in Berlin !? . A mistake?

No! Port Performance is invited by the Association for Artistical Researches
Berlin to the project "Irrtumsforschung" (research of mistake), for to realize a
Port Performance Workshop with contentual link.

The third Port Performance workshop will take place in the Kunstfabrik am
Flutgraben and the location at the river Spree at the former cargo harbour
" replace" the portcity at the sea, where Port Performance is normally active.

The mistake or the failure or the misunderstanding will be the research field
during the workshop. Learning and individual developement based on mistakes and
failures is not to understand in a negative way, but more as an understanding of
searching and finding. It is not about, that one fails, but more how. In an
creative process, that has the aim to put a mental idea in to practise, there
are all the time points where we fail. This potential we will discover and use
for to develope and realise art performances.

The workshop will be given by the international Performance-artists and
-teachers Angelika Fojtuch and BBB Johannes Deimling. The aim of the workshop is
to work out an Art-Performance and its final public presentation. We will
realize specifical excercises that will help to transform own ideas into a
performative work. The center of the workshop focuses the perception of the own
personality and the communication with the body. Own perception and
selfexperiences characterize the feeling in dealing with body, time and space in
performance art as well as in ordinary communication. To understand his body as
a tool and to use this tool in his own communications is the main value of this
workshop. Besides this artistical offer we give some cultural specials.

More Informations you can find on our website www.portperformance.net

“Devotional Choreography”

" Devotional Choreography" a 5-screen cine-film-projection installation Steve Boyland, Jonathan Raisin and Ray Dickaty will perform music in response to the work.. ( improvisation; piano, voice and saxophone). And they are really quite exceptional, so don't miss this opportunity to hear their performance because you really would be missing first class quality. You can find a project description in the attachment, as well as a couple of still images of the show.

PRIVATE VIEW / VERNISSAGE Wednesday 23rd / 18:30h / Anglican Cathedral

Improvised musical performance by Steve Boyland, Jonathan Raisin and Ray Dickaty starting at !8:45h
Any member of the congregation / general public and of any faith or non-faith background, is very warmly welcomed !!
A short project outline:
Devotional Choreography

The catalyst for this installation is the divisive force with which I observe a
great number of people responding to cultural identities that differ from
the respective indigenous one..
I will draw focus on the visual poetry of movement and gesture, which devotees
of religion have over centuries developed to honour and express their faith and
temporarily taking the role of the choreographer of an interplay; a chorus;
a series of pas de deux between cultures...
(ORIGIN of Choreography: from Greek khoreia ‘dancing in unison’ (from khoros ‘chorus’ ) + -graphy )
I am seeking out what is shared between and across cultures,
unifying emblems of what make all of us equally human..
The project investigates specifically ritual movements made during devotional
practices as these rituals are common to all faiths. The exact choreography differs,
but like in any good performance on a stage, individual choreographies
combine to a potentially holistic whole.. The grammar and composition
used within dance is just as valid applied to life. For a harmonic performance
a certain generosity and empathy towards fellow performers is required.
These movements and rituals will be shown as a multi screen projection which
explores the aesthetics of the endlessly repeated choreography that accompanies
devotional practices. I am orchestrating a dance about cultural kinship.

26th and 31st May 2007

You Are Here- Meet the Artist at the Clore Suite, Norton Priory Museum, 12.30 - 2pm on the following dates:

The Kitchen Gallery are delighted to present the public with a unique opportunity to "Meet the Artist".

You Are Here explores the notion of location in many contexts; spatial, philosophical, economical, historical. 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. Eight artists will be presenting their work, discussing their techniques and inspiration at the Clore Suite at Norton Priory Museum.

All are welcome, no booking is necessary, however we would appreciate a call or email that you are coming. Free with admission to Norton Priory. Contact 01928 577 487/ 0151 733 5986 www.kitchengallery.uk.com for details info@kitchengallery.uk.com

PERFORMANCE: Alina Cojocaru in ‘Swan Lake’
19.30, Royal Opera House Covent Garden, London WC2E 9DD; Box Office: 020 7304 4000
15 & 22 May at 19.30; 26 May at 19.00
More than any other work, Swan Lake is the epitome of classical ballet - the one you have to know, the one you have to see. With Tchaikovsky's famous lyrical music and the spectacular ensembles and virtuosic solos of its dancing, there is no doubt why Swan Lake is a favourite on each occasion. A powerful tale of good, evil and the redemptive power of love.
During a hunting expedition, Prince Siegfried is enamoured of Odette, who has been transformed by the evil Von Rothbart's spell into a swan by day, returning to her womanly form only at night at the lakeside. With Siegfried's love – the love of one who has never loved before – the spell can be broken. But Siegfried is tricked into declaring his love for Von Rothbart's daughter Odile disguised by magic as Odette...

‘ Welcome Europa’ by Bruno Ulmer
Documentary / France / 2006 / 90 min
A fascinating and disconcerting portrait of the raw existence of Europe’s illegal immigrants. The film follows eight young men, Kurdish, Moroccan and Romanian, as they struggle for survival on the streets of Paris, Amsterdam and Madrid.
Forced out of their native countries by political threats and extreme poverty they hope to find freedom and a way to provide for their families back home. But without visas and entirely alone, Europe’s streets do not offer these desperate men an easy ride.

EXHIBITION: Alex Calinescu - New Paintings And Prints
@Fermynwoods Contemporary Art Ltd, The Water Tower, Brigstock, Kettering, England, NN14 3JA;

Tel. 01536 373469; e-mail: gallery@fermynwoods.co.uk
Established in 1998, Fermynwoods Contemporary Art is set in a beautiful rural location in Northamptonshire. Alex’s solo exhibition includes paintings made since her return from her residency at the Albers Foundation and two new series of prints made especially for the exhibition, working with Kip Gresham at The Print Studio, Cambridge.
“ In Calinescu’s lines are memories of vibration, echo, and synthesis. In the space there is colour, tone, scale and context. The finished works contain a fusion of harmony and discord, sound and silence, movement and stillness, form and emptiness. In this engagement with the pure note Calinescu explores enigmatic visual territories in which the dimensions of existence are investigated through a subordination of the literal to focus on formal considerations and respect for the subconscious. As a result these works are the material of truth, not illustrations of reality. They help make visible creative fundamentals which focus our minds beyond the individual to the universal. Calinescu does not create what she sees or hears, through the journey of making she creates what she knows.” - Daphne Astor 2007 (extract from “Alex Calinescu – New paintings and prints”)
For further information, please contact Rosalind Stoddart using the contact details above.
Gallery open Thursday-Sunday, 14.00-18.00

Richard Ashworth – “No Frills”

Invited by Tony Dash, from the Sefton Arts Development Leisure Services, Richard Ashworth shows paintings, drawings, assemblages made from non-traditional and re-cycled materials at the Wishbone gallery, Orrell Arts Centre in Bootle. The exhibition is open until the 4th of May 2006 and it worth a visit for sure.

A surprising collection of works made of unconventional and recycled materials such as plastic bags, paraffin wax, salvaged wood, matches, dried dates, hair.
I mentioned to Richard, while observing and analysing his work, the “found object” definition and he replied immediately about materials and objects that “…they find me”; “I’m just an opportunist..” in terms of using them. He has an eye for detail, texture and organic structure. Although, he is strongly using figurative elements as an almost daily exercise he tries to “escape” the figurative and enjoys experimenting and continues to express abstract or symbolic shapes of the soul. Some of his works have the predominant centred motif of a ‘circle’, ‘hole’, which to me suggests a way to openness, to release or communicate with the outside space, but also suggests further the ‘stored’ unknown, immaterial or spiritual ‘depth’ package or space. Richard is pointing out that this has to do with his previous figurative work; it developed from there, as a symbol “to do with the soul”. “A face is a symbol of the soul”, “a mirror of the soul”- he says.
Richard Ashworth has been involved in many exhibitions around Liverpool, including the Kitchen Open competition at Kitchen gallery and most recently, in the Cornerstone Gallery curated by Loop - Arthur Roberts and in two successful shows in 2006, as part of the Liverpool Independents Biennial curated by Nicole Bartos.(text by Nicole Bartos) Click here to read more about Richard and his work.
