Jacob Aue Sobol

Opens 26 May - 15 July 2006

In 1999, a young Danish photographer traveled to Greenland to photograph
life in Tiniteqilaaq, a small hunter settlement on the remote East coast.
After five weeks, he left, only to return four months later, feeling that
his camera had not yet captured the multiple layers of this very different
reality. It was then that Jacob fell in love with Sabine - he was 23 and
she 19.

Jacob Aue Sobol studied photography at the European Film College in Denmark
and the Danish School of Photographic Visual Art. His work has been
exhibited at the Museum of Photography and the Fototrienniale of Odense,
the Harbourfront Center, Toronto, and the Faulconer Gallery, Iowa, amongst
others. He has won the 2006 World Press Photo Prize in the category of
Daily Life Stories.

4 MAY -10 JUNE

@ View 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.

Thursday and Friday 12 - 4pm

St George's Hall, Liverpool

News from Jazmin Sinclair:

Long Journey Home Group -

Exhibition Opportunities for Artists

3rd - 7th May, 2006

There is a massive exhibition coming up in St George's
, Liverpool from 3rd - 7th May, 2006
being organised by Peter
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."

South 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 visit:

Or you can contact the South Bohemia Gallery at:
196 Smithdown Road, Wavertree, Liverpool L15 3JT,
Tel: 0151 7335120 Mob: 0779 1145190 / 07866 85488
Email: peterworthington1@yahoo.co.uk

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.

I Saw @ Eggspace, Liverpool

This Project aims to document the development of Liverpool through the eyes (and Lenses) of Artists.
There will be two strands to this project.
1. Online exhibition
Photographs will be exhibited on a website which will be regularly updated throughout the duration of the project. The online exhibition will show an evolving view of a developing city to an international audience.
2. I-Saw at Eggspace
This exhibition will take place during the 2006 Liverpool Biennial (16 th September – 26 th November). It will provide selected artists with the opportunity to exhibit their photographs of the city during the UK 's largest festival of contemporary art. It will show the development of the city and provide visitors with an insight into the culture of Liverpool during non-Biennial months.
The exhibition will include photographs of buildings, places etc. which may be considered by some to be an “eyesore”. It will examine perceptions of beauty and the grotesque in the built environment and engage people in debate about the current re-development of the city.
What to send:
You may send a maximum of 2 images
Images must be in JPG or GIF format
Each image should be no more than 500k (0.5MB)
Include your contact details in your email
You may also write a short explanation about your images – max 500 words.
Anyone sending images will be considered for both strands of the project. Due to the level of interest in this project, we regret that we will be unable to show all images.

1 May - May Day

News from Jazamin Sinclair

The London 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.

Please visit:


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). adam.museumman@gmail.com

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 on the websites below soon after.

Alternatively, or as well, if you have time before Sunday you can make your own flag & bring it along to be flown from the bridge at 3pm Sunday. Again see websites below for details / info.

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 the Celtic
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.
