An Off-Site Project as a response to the work TRUTH SERUM in sk-interfaces,

Commissioned by The Arts Catalyst

This is a call to join the Office of Experiments (set up by the artist Neal White) in an artwork that is also a cultural experiment in consensual self-experimentation. The project seeks to highlight the case of artists such as Steve Kurtz and Critical Art Ensemble, and their persecution in the USA, which marks an ever-increasing creep of the security state into the nervous system of culture.

The experiment will involve individuals coming to a central Liverpool location (to be disclosed just prior to the experiment) and taking part in a short psychological experiment based on substantiating TRUTH lasting around 10 minutes. The whole experience should take no longer than 30 minutes in total and participants can choose to opt out at any time. Enquirers will be given more information about the experiment prior to confirming their participation.

The first experiment will be conducted in Liverpool on Sat 29 March 2008. If you would like to participate or get more information about the experiment, please email randy@o-o-e.org or via The Arts Catalyst's website www.artscatalyst.org

Fanchon Frohlich - Retrospective Exhibition - until 3rd May 2008

@ Ullet Grange, 36 Ullet Road, Liverpool

Read 'Press release'. Please, click here to read printable version.

Read "Neural Supernovae" by Jeremy Reed (about Fanchon Frohlich):

See Fanchon Frohlich retrospective exhibition photo album with some selections from the opening and exhibition. See exhibition details below by browsing down the page; More images will follow soon.

"Neural Supernovae"

"Fanchon Fröhlich’s paintings are essentially neural, in that their explosive delivery of colour maps out work that takes its direction from inner landscapes given the form of abstract configuration. With a background in linguistic philosophy and science, Fanchon began painting at the Liverpool College of Art, largely as a figurative artist, before her seminal involvement with the etcher S.W. Hayter’s Atelier 17 in Paris, an experience that radically challenged her formative experiments with figurative painting, and transformed her into the liberated proponent of abstract expressionism who we know today. Only a small number of Fanchon’s early works have survived, but amongst them is the achingly sensitive portrait of her late husband, the physicist, Herbert Frohlich, shown here, as a superb example of her ability to bring the complex inner thinker to light, so that we the viewer are confronted directly with the man’s characteristic preoccupation with thought processes, as his means of connecting with the quantum universe by way of physics.
Part of Fanchon’s greatness lies in her ability to continually reinvent herself as an artist. Her writings on philosophy, science and art, her immense European culture, that also takes in the work of the American abstract expressionists, as well as the Japanese influences on her art, initiated by a period of work with Goto San in Kyoto, have all combined over the years, to the continuous and lively remaking of her art as the dominant expression of a life committed to imaginative creativity.
In 1991, Fanchon always in search of the new founded the Collective Phenomena, an art movement characterised by having several painters working abstractly together on a surface that takes its force from concentrated spontaneity within the participants, the activity often being performed live to the accompaniment of Lawrence Ball’s extempore piano music. The work of the Collective Phenomena, beautiful, disturbing, powerfully conflicting and neurologically menacing, is integral to the provocatively challenging retrospective of an artist at last coming up for serious consideration as a major painter.
Fanchon’s connections to Liverpool too, as the concealed city buried in the subtext to her art, forms another important aspect of her creative growth as an artist, right from her early years of studying at the Liverpool College of Art, to assimilating the city’s indigenous culture into the textural density of her work as place, no matter how abstractly overwritten. Her work, always celebratory in tone and driving in energy, is the unstoppable example of an artist working with courage at the edge, and one who is prepared to accept all experience as subject matter for art, and to compound the risks proposed by pioneering into adventurous experimentation. I would point for example to the painting Visual Music V11 Lyrical Moon, a collaboration between Fanchon and Sylvie Le Seac’h, as a superb instance of the collective method, in which intense colour mixed with acute sensory experience, come together as the fusion of energies instrumental to creating a spontaneous work of visionary intensity. But for all Fanchon’s education in philosophic and scientific disciplines, the work is never prohibitively cerebral, but always moves seamlessly from mental conception to imaginative expression without trace of interruption.
Almost entirely conceived in Liverpool, in a studio with aerospace-silver walls, high up in her old 19th century house on Greenheys Road, Fanchon Fröhlich who works in a light peculiar to her adopted city, has produced a highly original body of work, edgy, impacting, colourful, energised, and totally, unapologetically the real thing."

Read more about 39ART Day in 2007.

Background information for 39artday from artinliverpool.com:

39 Art Day (www.39art.com) was initiated by a Japanese artist Yoshiaki Kaihatsu
( www.yoshiakikaihatsu.com )
in 2000 to foster the appreciation of contemporary art in Japan, the country where support for contemporary art is still weak at best, if not altogether absent.

In Japanese, "thank you" rhymes with 3/9 (san-kyuu), because there is no "th"
sound in Japanese and the Japanese people tend to pronounce "th" as "s." Thus,
the Day of 39 Art on March 9.

A number of art galleries/spaces, as well as individual artists and Internet-based
entities in Japan, offered special tie-in programs on March 9 (or the week of March 9).
Recent years, it has been spread out worldwide. This year, participants outside Japan
include galleries in Germany, US, Hong Kong and Netherlands. Liverpool is the first
UK city to participate.

Have a think what you can do on 39 Art Weekend 2008 and contact us!

Sarkin & McHugh

Exhibition: 27/02/08 – 25/03/08
Two artists with an extremely rare condition called Sudden Artistic Output, Jon Sarkin (Boston, USA) and Tommy McHugh (Liverpool, UK) will meet for the first time to talk and work on their art together.
Both artists had a stroke a number of years ago and have since developed a compulsion to write, paint and sculpt. They have become prolific, full time artists with exceptional talent.
There are only a handful of other cases in the world of artistic output following sudden onset brain damage, and medical science is yet to fully understand the condition.
Tommy McHugh was born in Liverpool. He worked as a builder, and had a history of violence and drug abuse and had served time in prison. Since suffering a stroke in 2001, Tommy has felt a need to create, and has experimented with painting, drawing, writing and sculpting, dealing with themes relating to his 'split-mind', which Tommy states has changed his personality.
American chiropractor, Jon Sarkin, sustained frontal lobe damage in 1988 and found that his primary impulse was to create. He went on to become a successful artist, with hundreds of drawings and numerous shows; there has been intense press interest in him and his work, and a film production company bought the rights to his life story in 1997.
Granada Productions will be filming the exhibition as part of a forthcoming documentary series for Five, charting some of the rare and unusual effects of brain injury.
Erwina A.Ghafar, Director Art & Design for the Contemporary Urban Centre - North West, says,
“ We are delighted and very honoured to be working together with Granada and two brilliant artists, Jon and Tommy. Giving out support to these artists reflects our ethos in working with and showcasing the work of people traditionally excluded from arts and cultural activity, and allows us to communicate the real issues of those struggling with or overcoming complex social issues. “

Read Jeremy Reed's "Neural Supernovae" about Fanchon Fröhlich

Read review written by the artinliverpool.com:

"Fanchon Frohlich at the Grange

An excellent retrospective of 5 decades of work by Fanchon Frohlich opened at The Grange, Ullet Road on Saturday. Fanchon was there of course, looking as elegant and arty as ever. Music by Frakture with whom she collaborated at Cornerstone last year and the gallery proprietor and curator Nicole Bartos read a lovely statement about the artist written by the poet, Jeremy Reed.
As well as several abstract paintings there are charcoal drawings, etchings, masses of sketch books, philosophical writings and my own favourite piece, I think, is her portrait of her late husband Herbert who for many years was Professor of Theoretical Physics at Liverpool University.
The following text is from her website...
Fanchon Fröhlich (nee Angst) was a philosophy student at the University of Chicago, where she worked with Rudolf Carnap (formerly of Vienna, and the founder of the Vienna Circle) and Oxford where she studied with Sir Prof. Peter Strawson, doing a doctorate in Primary and Secondary Qualities.
She studied at Liverpool College of Art, then moved to St Ives to work with Peter Lanyon. Later she travelled to Paris where she worked with the sculptor Szabo and finally studied at Stanley William Hayter’s etching atelier, Atelier 17, all of the time preserving her faith in Abstract Expressionism.
Fanchon’s artwork unites philosophy of science and art, evident for instance in the ‘Position of Light in Art’ and the ‘Paradoxes of Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art’ to the book she co-edited with Sylvie Le Seac'h (who was also a pupil of Hayter): ‘S.W. Hayter Research on Experimental Drawing: Systems of Oscillating Fields‘.
Fanchon has produced both representational paintings - among which is the portrait of her husband to be displayed in the Royal Society (for Scientists) in London - and abstract expressionist paintings, etchings, and more recently ‘Collective Phenomena’.
’ Collective Phenomena’ is the name for a group of abstract artists painting collectively on the same surface, using the gestures of one then another as inspiration and results (in some cases) to a unusual counterpoint.
Viewing 2-6pm, Monday to Saturday or by appointment. Exhibition runs until April 12. 2008.

TOM PALIN - 'A Room with a View 2'

@ View Two Gallery, Mathew Street

Viewing - Wednesday January 16. 2008, 18.00 - 21.00

Born in Birkenhead in 1974, Tom Palin studied Fine Art at LJMU and recently completed an MA in Art History at the University of Manchester.

He has exhibited widely, including a solo show at The Yorkshire Sculpture Park entitled Pride of Place: A Painter’s Perspective and undertaken residencies in Dublin, Munich and Prague. He has won awards including The Hunting Arts Prizes - Young Artist of the Year Award and Gilchrist - Fisher Memorial Award for Landscape Painters. He lives and works in Merseyside.

For this exhibition, Tom presents an intimate body of paintings which have evolved since his previous exhibition, A Room with a View, at The Atkinson Gallery, Southport.

“Almost magically, the very stuff of paint (in this or that juxtaposition) can compel sensation or contemplation, allowing the onlooker an escape from the immobilising limitation of the present to a place outside. A painting is no more or less than a room with a view where visibility can become clear only in the act of feeling.” TP

Also on the night View Two will be launching its catalogue for 2008.

Come down and be the first to pick up a copy and see our exciting programme.

"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.
