Two Gallery, Liverpool
Jai is best known for the 2003 installation 'This Is Camp X- Ray' - a
working recreation of the U.S internment camp in Guantanamo Bay on waste
land in inner city Manchester.
Working mainly on canvas with oils, Jai employs found materials like
reclaimed wood, sandpaper and various scrap materials.
The paintings are large and often contrast areas of highly detailed
photo-like reality against expanses of loose flattened brushwork.
Found materials such as toy ships and soldiers, alongside old books and
photos, connect through the sculptures to the past and collective memory.
But the artist is not concerned with nostalgia.
The work is a wry, though gently executed, critical attack on how and what
we are made to experience and remember.

Long Journey Home Group -
Exhibition Opportunities for
3rd - 7th May, 2006
is a massive exhibition coming up in St
Hall, Liverpool from 3rd - 7th May, 2006 being organised by
Worthington from the South Bohemia Art Gallery.
"This exhibition is part
of the Liverpool 08 Open Squash Championship
in association with The South Bohemia Art Gallery, Liverpool Culture
Company and Liverpool City Council & will be a Grand Exhibition of Art,
Sport and Performance. The exhibition will promote the artwork of
Liverpool and London artists in one of the most beautiful buildings in
the country. Performances by graduates from Liverpool Institute of
Performing Arts with laser light show. Outside the hall includes
choirs, drummers, dancers, performers and artists painting the scenes."
Bohemia Gallery are asking for lots groups of artists
to show and
for the Long Journey Home Group to be one of them. I will be able to get more
info to you when I receive it.
In the meantime for more details
Or you can contact the South
Bohemia Gallery at:
196 Smithdown Road, Wavertree, Liverpool L15 3JT,
Tel: 0151 7335120 Mob: 0779 1145190 / 07866 85488
The cost is £200 per
group of artists & the whole event will have
massive media coverage including some on Sky Sports TV. This obviously
means that each artist who shows work will have to pay a fee so this
cost can be covered but between a group of us this shouldn't be too
high. I will work out this price when I have a better idea who is
interested in showing. I think that the space per artist will be
limited to one or two of pieces of work each again depending on who is
interested in showing.
If you are interested in showing
work in this exhibition as part of the
Long Journey Home Group then please get back to me on this at this
email address asap with two small low resolution J-peg images of your
artwork / ideas. If lots of people are interested then this may have
to come down to a first come first serve selection process.

News from Jazamin Sinclair
Biennial is about to start & to celebrate the start
each year they have flagging down May Day on May 1st. This happens
all over as far as I can gather including in London, Liverpool & Berlin.
for more information,
or see below / attached info:
Anyway, The Long Journey Home Group have been asked to contribute
to this by us creating an A2 electronic flag made up of images from all or
(as many as possible) of the artists who are part of / wanting to be part of
the Long Journey Home Group. (To find out more about the Long Journey Home
Group visit: http://homepage.mac.com/jazamin/LJHG/LJHG.html)
This flag will
then be printed A2 size & flown on Sunday from 3pm onwards in at the
Iron Bridge, Sefton Park, Liverpool. The flagging down event will be documented
with photographs & these photos will then be sent to Adam Nankervis
(Museum Man). firstname.lastname@example.org
If you can make
it along to the event then please do come along this Sunday afternoon.
If you want to
participate in this (& Adam Nankervis who is organising
the whole thing is asking for as many artists to participate as possible)
then I will need one or two images from you that you want to be used/included
asap before this Saturday morning (29th April). I am sorry
for the short notice but if you can get something to us for this then this
would be great.
I know I already
have some images from some artists / photographs from our previous shows,
but I am not sure exactly which image you would want to have included.
If you know I already have your image then tell me which one to include.
The flagging down
event will be documented with photographs & these photos will then
be sent to Adam Nankervis. The flagging down event in Liverpool is being
co-ordinated by: Jo Derbyshire, George Lund, Gaynor Evelyn Sweeney.
Please email either
an art image or a photograph of yourself as an artist or both & then
we will get the flag printed on Saturday.
If you do send
images, your name will be included in some of the information, with general
information about The Long Journey Home Group with the flag & hopefully

DAY to MAY DAY
A London Biennale 2006 proposal
The inaugural day
of The London Biennale 2006 was proposed by David Medalla in
1997 as an auspicious day
to open and celebrate the return of the biennale biannually. May Day is a name
for various holidays
celebrated on May 1. May Day is exactly a half-year from November 1, All Saints'
Day. Marking the end of
winter half of the year in the Northern hemisphere, ithas always been an occasion
for popular celebrations,
regardless of the political or religious establishment. May Day was orginally
holiday Beltaine, the "Return of the Sun". It is the third and last
of the spring festivals. Beltaine
manifests with the the maypole, draped in banners ribbons and flags and the
sending a basket of flowers to someones door.
The London Biennale 2006
The candycoloured point flags on Maypoles and the traditionally bannered flags
draped from windows and carried during marches in celebration of May Day has
inspired this proposal.
I would like to invite all participating London Biennale artists to bring a
flag on May 1-or on the
opening event of The London Biennale 2006 and over the period of The London
Biennial 2006 fly them over and around London,Liverpool,Berlin and to other
destinations where they can be hoisted to allow the artist a dialogue of their
desire of any size,colour wether whimsical,absurd,slogans,emblamatic...which
will be assembled in a unity-cojoined,accumulating in a diverse assemblage
in many locations,culminating in a hoisting of the flags on London Bridge on
August 31 2006-the official night of the closing of The London Biennale 2006.
The flags will then be flown amast in Liverpool as The London Biennale Pollination
during a site yet
determined in Liverpool,during The Liverpool Biennial 2006 where all artists
will be represented.
