Bill Drummond

THE LIVERPOOL CAKE CIRCLE

Bill Drummond will be constructing the Liverpool Cake Circle from the 4 November to 00:50 on 6 November 2011 – thus from late afternoon on the Friday, through Guy Fawkes Day, to the wee small hours of the Sunday morning. That is 32 hours and 2 minutes in total.

This is the fourth of the ten Cake Circles that Drummond is in the process of constructing around the world.

Once all ten have been constructed it will be considered as one complete sculpture entitled Ten Cake Circles.

CLINIC

Future Machine 2011 (extract below)

The Future Machine is a free generating poetry device. The unit is based around the random nature of events and discourse, such as in the Terminal Convention 32hr/2min timeline. It incorporates language and found sounds, as well as music. The aim is to reflect the random and chaotic way we experience audio.

Last Man, 2011

Filmed on site at the location of the old terminal in Cork, Last Man taps in to the embedded narrative atmosphere that permeates the empty airport. The site of the vacated terminal suggests a foretaste of one possible future or perhaps the recording of a neglected past as the film traces the path of one solitary individual as he navigates the interior of the now empty airport. These possible scenarios conjure up both the concepts of a world without oil, making air travel impossible or even a future where aviation has become obsolete and what remains is nostalgia for the archaic technologies of the past.

Shane Munro

Shane Munro gives a guided tour through the virtual version of the group show ‘STURGEON’S HAMMOCK’, Offenbach/Frankfurt. The virtual boat exists in hybrid tension with its analogue equivalent, at once documenting and pre-empting the contents. The environment created by the artist René Schohe accommodates works by Shane Munro, Danny Kerschen, Andreas Bülow Cosmus and Ryan Siegan-Smith.

Kerschen and Munro have collaborated by commissioning glitches and placing apparitions of sculptural entities. The room where Allen Mothchart will be performing his comedy routine has been simulated. Siegan-Smith presents new sculptural works throughout. A recreation of Bülow Cosmus’ tattoo parlour includes previous designs, naval paraphernalia and merry music.

Seamus Nolan

Flight NM7104 abridged

In an age of public crisis, of environmental, economic, information, species, politics, energy, culture, this work is an immersion within the very ordinary relationship of the individual to the rationalisations which determine the factors of identity and private appropriation, searching for a different way of being in the world, a more direct consequential understanding of place in correspondence with an abstracted network of communication, food, energy, travel etc.

It is a slight intervention, utilising the normal means of interaction between the private individual and the air travel industry. The idea or the gesture and its occurrence as a kind of currency operating outside the perimeters of the movement of people or objects, operate upon the idea of a shifting subject and a repositioning of a set of values and relations whereby specificity of the site and its consensual use value might determine the activity of the work.

Becky Shaw

Getting Warm

In 2002 I bought a second-hand tshirt in an American Classics shop in Melbourne. The tshirt is printed with American-Indian style motifs – popular in the 1970s, capturing a nostalgia for a life closer to nature. Each of the motifs have been redrawn in felt tips, on graph paper, a simple act of passing the time. Like the abandoned Cork airport and its decor, the tshirt is displaced by time and space. The resulting ppt, reflects the Terminal’s status, caught between digital systems and the contingent practices of post-it notes and manual switches.

Imogen Stidworthy

Evacuation Exercise

Stidworthy’s work deals with the structure of language, the subjectivity and nuances of linguistic formation, and how languages can be used as a kind of defence mechanism.

Stidworthy has been asked to make a new piece of work in response to the key interests that Terminal Convention develops over the three weeks of the project. The new work will be released on the final day of the exhibition, the 26th November 2011.
