11/12: Pablo Bronstein Interview

‘I’m interested in how we look at buildings,’ Bronstein has said, ‘how we re-evaluate them from a present perspective.’


11/12: Lucy Skaer

Lucy Skaer Film for an abandoned projector
Lyric Picture House, Armley
29th September – 15th December 2011

In the darkness of the derelict Lyric House in the Armley area of Leeds, the cinema’s old Kalee projector plays a new 35mm film. Specific to its place, Skaer's sculptural film work is the imagined subconscious of the projector itself ... Through repeated screenings, the film slowly bears witness to its own presentation through scratches and marks that visibly scar and efface the surface of the image. At the end of the project the cinema will once again be dormant.


11/12: Whiteread Drawings

Past Exhibition at Tate Britain - there is a book.

"Rachel Whiteread is renowned for her evocative large-scale sculptures, but drawing has always remained one of her core activities. This exhibition offers a rare opportunity to explore her works on paper, most of which have never been shown before in a public gallery. These collages and drawings provide a fascinating and intimate insight into the creative process behind Whiteread's work. While her sculptures are often large-scale and involve a team of fabricators, these paper works provide a more personal, mobile counterpoint."

11/12: Cedric Price Archive

"Cedric Price (1934 – 2003) was one of the most influential and visionary architects of the late-twentieth century, focusing on time-based urban interventions and flexible or adaptable projects that invited the user’s participation. His implicit criticism of contemporary notions of architecture earned Price heroic status among fellow architects such as Will Alsop, Archigram, Arata Isozaki, Rem Koolhaas, and Bernard Tschumi."

11/12: Richard Wilson 20:50

Richard Wilson’s 20:50 is truly a contemporary masterpiece. The work is the only permanent installation at the Saatchi Gallery and has been continuously shown in each of the gallery’s venues since 1991. Currently on display in Gallery 13 – a room custom built for the piece – 20:50 transforms the gallery into a site of epic illusion.

This autumn, the Barbican Art Gallery is transformed by an exhibition on OMA, one of the most influential architecture practices working today. Celebrated as much for their daring and unconventional ideas as their inventive buildings, the work of OMA and its think tank AMO anticipates the architectural, engineering and cultural ideas transforming our material world.


11/12: Kevin Green - Place without Place

Kevin Green's first solo show, Place without Place, comprises 13 works on paper derived from the artist's fictional narratives, which he bases on found images and observed elements of the City. Enticing questions about the distinctions between presentation and representation, the real and the imagined, the ordinary and the extraordinary, these drawings are blueprints for proposed moments to be inserted back into urbanity.

11/12 - jail make

The sculpture makes note of passersby and visitors to it- when people gather around, the tree it inflates itself, when they move away it deflates.
