YES WAY / ARTISTS
Darren’s peculiar otherworldly video creations build to an apocalyptic sea-creature disco, an anonymous bizarre dance routine demonstration of household objects or simply the boil of a kettle. The visually seductive pre 90’s aesthetics leaves you a little unsettled. Big Blob, Blob, Blob 1 and Sci-Fi Looking Thing draw scientific proof to obsessive introverted landscapes.
Mark builds sculptures that he performs. One video was a sequence of images with included a sculpture he baked. Coconuts on a gallery wall become houses for sock men to visit. One video was quite literally a collection of images of different men’s noses. In another piece he wore a sculpture and performed sequences edited to the intro of a Madonna track.
Olivier, who is known by many other names, once dreamed up a 4metre spotlit silver foil balloon after seeing a Kenneth anger film, and monumentally maps out whole buildings in glitter mixed to the colours of Jacques Tati’s films. He has made artwork that smells of the moon and lets Casper the Friendly Ghost tell poetic stories in the rain.
Kate talks in video. She arranges interviews between herself, friends and family regularly and knows very well that her sister can hold her own in a debate- especially if it’s about her mates dancing in a club, or her Nan singing opera. You’ll only ever get to see these words and images for one night only.
Danielle once had a huge cube of blue deep-fried. Another time she enlarged a photograph of a block of red with a chunk missing and called it B&Q. In one video she sat in front of her mum’s council house with her head unwrapping coloured material almost to heavy to sit up straight, covering the concrete street around her in pure colours.
Amanda’s friends have performed wobbly hula hoop routines and sung the periodic table to a self made tune for her videos, and though she feels guilty that her work might be all about her, her objects can be so unassuming you sometimes have to look carefully to find them- a holographic sticker on a wall, or a ball of plasticine balancing on a ledge, or a drawing of a folded box on a perfect roll of white paper.
"It might be controversial but Ruth is, quite simply, a painter! Her degree show last year had you seeing double - huge life size group portraits were presented of her fellow St Martin's students, who were also walking round the private view blurring the potent social document with its comparatively dull reality.
Katie has made a set of fakes of famous artworks so convincing they have been included on CVs of the artists she's imitated. She made a maze of string 1 mile long, put up Christmas lights in July, and curated an exhibition in pitch black where people fumbled to find works as they turned on and off.
Justin is almost irreverent with his enjoyment of buildings and pop songs. He has turned Mies Van Der Rohe into furniture and Mondrian into a dance mat. When he gets the chance he might block out everything else- with a spidery chandelier casting light over other work or a smoke machine obscuring it completely.
When Kaz sees a window, he thinks of a vinyl sticker: A shoe at the Curzon cinema, circles above lamps and intersecting curves on the windows into a show. When he sees an object he imagines a plinth: soft porn collages on towering boxes, or spoken recordings mounted on angular things with stilts. He has also made people queue in anticipation for an exhibition for an audience of one.
Richard John Jones
Whatever Richard does he blogs about it, be it making a film about an offshore company called Headless Ltd, to interviewing a receptionist at a public institution in Sao Paulo about Brazilian economic policy. He grilled Auto-Italia about its motivations then sold off all its assets in a shop, which infamously included a kettle signed by Anna Wintour. He aims to provoke discussion while outsourcing a hip aesthetic that makes you think "Oh, all this cool culture stuff is actually quiet challenging".
James Lewis and Joseph Carter
This half-graphics, half-fine-art friendship duo set their show and tell in quiet Kingston suburbia. They draw parallels in their separate work and love each others' smart cool and subtle interventions. Jo has woven text through the streets with custom-made bicycle tires, and orchestrated video work of pink and sand submersion. James' glass of seawater collected from Cornwall is still waiting, in one of the Auto-Italia caravans, for a willing accomplice to journey to cast it into the North Sea and complete this romantic ridiculous gesture.
In Rachel’s work she is the hostess with the mostest. Her sculptures are essays about going to Ikea. She lives in her caravan in an artspace and makes glorious attempts to be generous with her work, throwing a street party for the local residents, flowing pink bubbles over plastic cut glass, or as a column that catches the light in the dark.
Patrick has a love affair with glitter. His recent work featuring silver mirrored pumps which featured in a lecture he gave on The Wiz, black glitter on the face of a girl reciting a fictional history of auto-italia, a glittering set of t-shirts spelling out PARIS all topped by a black sparkling Vatican dome symbolising the star studded film Roman Holiday.
I only really want to Gay Against You, Shitty Limits and The Sticks!
Well that's an answer of a kind.
It would be nice to know what time bands start and finish though, I don't want to arrive at 12 and hang around for hours.
Arthur, do you like the Shitty Limits?
often stagetimes are an hour or so behind, happened on more than one occasion at Bardens which is difficult to get home from for some people. Otherwise, it does sound awesome, hope I can come out on the Sunday!
