Opening Night Musical Performance

‘You Call that Music!?!’ No… not the belligerent cry from audience members but the theme of a piece played by the in-house band of ‘Unkant Publishing’: ‘The AMM All Stars’ at the Opening Night of Morley College at Holborn Library Played on a mixture of ‘proper’ and found instruments and called ‘Rough Music Rhyme Time’ the band…

‘Span’ Joanna Hyslop

Joanna Hyslop: ‘Span’ A ritualistic significance seemed to emerge as I made the forty five images of ‘Span’, one for every year from 1886 to 1930. For me, each year betokens intricate interpretations of sundry data. The inbuilt uncontrollability of Indian ink on wet paper held its own chance discovery with every drawing.

“Blicero” Andrew Revell

“I never start with a theme, or story when I make an artwork, I am not an illustrator, preferring to get lost in the moment like improvising on an instrument, if the work is successful it will speak and be suggestive or else not make the cut. Titles choose themselves when the work is done,…

‘Ghost’ Ian Rawlinson

My new site specific works included in this exhibition explore ideas of place and memory taking inspiration from the Holborn Library building’s beginnings in 1959. The distinctive entrance and the foundation stone are highlighted, adjusted and re-presented, reassessing the nature of post war architecture and suggesting the library as a portal into another realm, which…

‘Bosci’ Blogs!

For the…

Steve Wright: ‘Medusa Inverted: ‘

Steve Wright ‘Medusa Inverted’ Inspired by the basement space with its weird mustard-coloured wall panels, I’ve made two drawings. These depict two Roman heads of the gorgon Medusa that were re-used in the construction of another underground space; the Roman cistern in Istanbul. One is upside-down, the other on its side, both reduced to the…

Carol Wilhide Justin: ‘A Fold of the Sea’

‘A Fold of the Sea” Japanese Woodcut “The inside is an operation of the outside…an inside which is merely the fold of the outside, as if the ship were a folding of the sea’ (Gilles Deleuze ‘Foucault” Continuum 1999) I liked this paradox. Memory is also described as a fold. I folded my print this…

I am planning to use the spaces left when these display boards are taken down- hopefully!

‘Evidence – Unexplained Shadows’

‘Evidence – Unexplained Shadows’. Steve Mepsted. I enjoy making photographic images on ready-made and found surfaces; where the picture becomes less of a surface and more of an object. In this instance brown paper tie-on tags have been used to explore a potential narrative – these suspicious looking burnt objects and stains might have been…
