Barry W Hughes – Remnants, Berlin

Barry W Hughes
Remnants, Selected Photographs
1 – 30 April 2011

WerkStadt Kulturverein Berlin e.V.
Emser Strasse 124
12051 Berlin-Neukölln

Remnants is a group of works that individually explore ideological or situational incidences; while coincidences are explored in the detail the works also operate in much the same way with each other on a broader scale. Where one work touches on empire building another will continue with an empire falling, or where a work takes on the mythology of the Greeks another will explore that of the Bible. A common thread throughout these works is how human beings have learned to deal with their own inventions, be they practical, absurd, sentimental or violent. Photographs and books become subjects for photographing, while an unusable guillotine made from household materials bears the name of the last person to be guillotined in France. Everything is linked somehow, through material, location or intention; Hughes’s world is one of hints and clues, objects that speak as visual riddles.

Ultimately, Remnants is an exhibition about quantifying time through the left-over’s of human endeavour. How we move through the ages is evident in the objects we leave behind. Like an archaeologist working in reverse, Hughes begins with an event, sources an artifact and documents it. What we are left with is another object, a photograph, and a remnant in itself.

11 March – 9 April 2011

Poppy Sebire
All Hallows Way
6 Copperfield Street
london SE1 0EP

In a month of seasonal and economic gloom, Poppy Sebire’s latest show offers a little light relief. Player Player Player brings together six artists who use wit, slapstick, and a healthy sense of the absurd to come at the world from a fresh and playful angle. Never earnest, but often surprisingly incisive, theirs is work that’ll make you smile and make you think, and leave the gallery feeling slightly better.

Peter Liversidge's work is a series of proposals for spectaculair artistic projects, written up on an old manual typewriter and hung on the gallery walls. Some of them even get carried out.

The Single Road
a new blog curated by Alistair Rider & Thomas A Clark

Since the 1960's, a number of artists, for different reasons, have taken the decision to repeat a single practice, or to make one ongoing piece, throughout their working lives.
The Single Road will explore the implications of this attitude and commitment.
