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.
and searched, but could not find it, nor any of the artist. I later
they had been arrested for spray painting the city.
The past few days, I had been receiving postcards from Greece. I
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
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
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
picked up the card it was from Rhodes in Greece. There was no message
card. I picked up all the other cards from my in-tray and examined
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
off for the Mothman.
I found a place in Rhodes known as Valley
of the Butterflies – known
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
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!!?

When the City Speaks: The City is the Stage …
Artists will become the flaneur - city walkers for the day - using

inspired by it.

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

I will draw focus on the visual poetry of movement and gesture,

their faith and

a series of pas de deux between cultures...

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

combine to a potentially holistic whole.. The grammar and composition
used within dance is just as valid applied to life. For a harmonic

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,
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
parameters in different ways; by use of objects or paint
each artist explores a distinct site to create unique and
dialogues on the theme. Whether the metaphor is mutated
toys falling through space (Jane Fairhurst) to explore the
which our consumer desirables travel to reach us, or the
gap between solid and gaseous states (Susan Toler), You
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.

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
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...

Box office: 08707 550 062
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
for their families back home. But without visas and entirely
alone, Europe’s streets do not offer these desperate
men an easy ride.
This film is presented by DocHouse

Calinescu - New Paintings And Prints
@Fermynwoods Contemporary Art Ltd, The Water Tower, Brigstock, Kettering,
England, NN14 3JA;
Tel. 01536 373469; e-mail:
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,
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”)

Gallery, Orrell Arts Centre, Bootle
Ashworth – “No
by Tony Dash, from the Sefton
Arts Development Leisure Services, Richard
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
