My Irish Eyes on Liverpool Again
a lifetime roaming the globe as a successful singer/songwriter,
returned to his roots in Ireland and has become a successful
artist, painting the people and places of his family’s
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.'

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.

for quality and originality.

Sarah Jane Lawton

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

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

craft and design.

diversity of contemporary ceramics, textiles

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

BBB Johannes Deimling: Don’t
Hurt Me (durational performance)
John Bock: Kleinodtotsod (video)
Cornerhouse, 70 Oxford Road, Manchester M1 5NH |
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
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.

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.

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

will launch on Friday the 10th of August, this show also features
