A game room and feature film will be part of British-Ghanaian artist Larry Achiampong’s first major solo exhibition at Turner Contemporary this spring.

The Wayfinder exhibition, which will also be on view at MK Gallery, Milton Keynes and BALTIC, Newcastle, will include the newly commissioned film WayFinder, which follows a young girl’s journey through England.

Achiampong also curated an exhibition of paintings by JMW Turner and collaborated with Turner Contemporary to create a playroom.

Achiampong works with cinema, sculpture, installation, sound, collage, music and performance. Drawing on popular culture and its communal and personal heritage, her work explores post-colonial and post-digital identity and deeply rooted inequalities in contemporary society.

WayFinder is Achiampong’s most ambitious film to date. Set in a pandemic, it follows the Wanderer, a young girl played by Perside Rodrigues, on a fearless journey through England. Traveling from North to South, she crosses different regions, cities and landscapes, encountering people, stories and situations on her way. Through six chapters, including ‘The North’, ‘The Great Smoke’ and ‘The Kingdom of the East’, the film examines social and economic exclusion, belonging and displacement, cultural heritage and the sense of home.

Starting at Hadrian’s Wall, it explores locations ranging from a housing estate in Wolverhampton to the E. Pellicci cafe in Bethnal Green, passing through the deserted National Gallery at night, until finally reaching the sea at Margate.

WayFinder draws on British traditions of travel and exploration to reflect on division and crisis, the history of empire and inequality and asks who is allowed to belong.

The film contains poetic voice-over narratives, true vox pop testimonials, field recordings and an original orchestral score composed by Achiampong. It features former athlete Anita Neil, who was Britain’s first black Olympian, actor and musician Mataio Austen Dean, and voice-overs by Ma Toshie and Russell Tovey, among others.

WayFinder will be shown inside an installation of a giant map of the UK divided into parts. Inspired by This Morning’s floating UK weather map, the map can be sat on and explored by visitors.

The exhibition will also include the largest UK presentation of Achiampong’s Relic Traveler project.

An installation will integrate the five Relic films and explore colonialism, capitalism and globalization.

Other film, sound and collage works will also be included, such as Achiampong’s Glyth collages where the faces of each black person in family photos have been replaced with cubist-like circles and red lips in reference to the experiences. growing racism in the East. London, the Robertson’s Golliwog mascot still in circulation until 2002, and the Guy Fawkes mask from Alan Moore’s V For Vendetta comic strip.

Along with his exhibition, Achiampong organized an exhibition of paintings by JMW Turner. He selected a group of oil paintings, watercolours, etchings and sketchbooks, mostly from Turner’s UK tours and including places featured in WayFinder.

As part of the exhibition, Turner Contemporary will present numerous video games that have influenced Achiampong’s work, for example; Ico, Journey, Inside, Legend of Zelda and Ori and the Blind Forest. The game room will include playable consoles, a workshop area, a stage for discussions and game soundtracks. The space will be free to access.

In collaboration with BAFTA Young Game Designers, The Prince’s Trust and Into Games, the gallery will offer game design workshops and talks for families and schools

Larry Achiampong said, “This project is a poignant moment for me, not only professionally and as a filmmaker, but also personally. It felt very important and necessary, especially at this point, to be able to bring this range of topics and conversations to the table at what is increasingly becoming a controversial moment in our time.

“I am so excited to share the expanded vision for this story which marks an exciting new stage in my artistic practice. I never intended to create a film of this size, but due to the breadth of ideas which evolved along the way, it became more and more inevitable that this would become my first feature film.

In April this year, Art on the Underground, is also launching a new permanent commission by Larry Achiampong for Westminster Tube Station with work featured on posters and on the cover of the 35th Pocket Tube Map.

Wayfinder runs from March 12 to June 19. Free entry. A reservation system is in place. Book in advance to guarantee your slot.

Filipino artist paints ‘starry night’, other paintings of dead cockroaches https://russellchatham.com/filipino-artist-paints-starry-night-other-paintings-of-dead-cockroaches/ Tue, 11 Jan 2022 13:24:00 +0000 https://russellchatham.com/filipino-artist-paints-starry-night-other-paintings-of-dead-cockroaches/ Delgado was cleaning his workspace by throwing away dead cockroaches when suddenly the smooth, shiny cockroach wings caught his eye.

Filipino artist Brenda Delgado uses the upper body of dead cockroaches to showcase her artistic talents. Without thinking about it a second time, she did the unexpected. Delgado painted dead cockroaches on the wings.

Leonardo da Vinci rightly said: “The artist sees what others only get a glimpse of. We often throw a dead insect out of the house and never look at it again. But have you ever thought about using a dead cockroach to paint on it? Don’t be surprised, you read that right. Filipino artist Brenda Delgado uses the upper body of dead cockroaches to showcase her artistic talents. One of the most bizarre and unconventional canvases for painting has caught people’s attention. Delgado was cleaning his workspace by throwing away dead cockroaches when suddenly the smooth, shiny cockroach wings caught his eye. She looked at the wings closely and wondered if the smooth surface of the cockroach wings could be used as a canvas for painting. Without thinking about it a second time, she did the unexpected. Delgado painted dead cockroaches on the wings.

She took advantage of her Instagram account to share her art. She painted nine cockroaches each with a different theme.

Many artists in the past have recreated the famous “Starry Night”. However, no one has opted for this unique cockroach art. From Monalisa to Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night”, Delgado has presented fascinating paintings. After the amazing fusion of oil paintings, dead insects seemed to be reborn in art form. Now This, an information portal, posted a video of Delgado, 30, on Twitter painting. The portal captioned it as “This artist paints works of art on the bodies of dead cockroaches, including a replica of Van Gogh’s ‘Starry Night’.”

Brenda Delgado also sent an inspiring message to her fellow artists. She said: “To my fellow artists, don’t be afraid to explore your talents and challenge yourself to do the things you think are impossible.” After the video went viral, some praised the artist while others noticed a roach in motion and found it disgusting. One of the users responded to the video saying, “It just sounds cruel. Don’t think that during my last breaths in a hospital bed, I would appreciate someone coming over and painting half of my body. the cockroach is already dead, so be it – but it just seems callous and cruel. Says a lot about the artist’s (lack of) empathy… ‘

Other users also criticized the artist for using cockroaches in his paintings.

A new toy store in Valparaiso specializes in Legos and collectibles.

Miller’s Toy Box opened last fall at 3512 Calumet Ave., near El Salto, in a bustling mall with a cafe, pizzeria, and barber shop. It offers rare Legos, such as one would find in a Lego store, a Legoland or a Lego Discovery Center.

“To find a store like ours, you’ll have to travel to the western suburbs of Chicago, Detroit, or Indianapolis,” owner Jason Miller said. “There’s also one at Water Tower Place. We specialize in things you won’t see at Walmart.”

Miller has been in the collectibles business since 1989. He has traded collectibles in a number of places, such as NWI Comic-Con and the Brickworld conventions, including the upcoming one in Indianapolis.

He eventually came to see that there was an underserved demand for Legos.

“I did Star Wars and Hot Wheels, but wanted to come back and do something you don’t see every day,” Miller said. “We had one or two, or a half-dozen sets when we first started, but we ended up showing up at toy shows with entire stalls of nothing but Legos. We’ve been strictly Legos and have a reputation for finding stuff that no one else has. We just received ‘Home Alone’ sets for Christmas which were gone within days. “

Tracey Emin to found art school in disused morgue https://russellchatham.com/tracey-emin-to-found-art-school-in-disused-morgue/ Fri, 07 Jan 2022 22:49:46 +0000 https://russellchatham.com/tracey-emin-to-found-art-school-in-disused-morgue/ Turner Prize-winning artist Tracey Emin is setting up an art school and museum in the port town of Margate, on the south-east coast of England, where she grew up.

Turner Prize-winning artist Tracey Emin is setting up an art school and museum in the port town of Margate, on the south-east coast of England, where she grew up. The school, which will be baptized TKE Studios (the name incorporates its own initials), will occupy a former public bath and mortuary, the London Times reports. The two structures are located near her studio, in a sprawling old printing house that she bought with a friend five years ago.

The school will include thirty newly built studios, which students can rent for a relatively nominal fee. Students will have to show their work regularly and, as the Daily mail, will not be allowed to smoke or listen to loud music. The mortuary is to serve as a sort of “mini museum”, housing the works of Emin, who announced in September that his studio would eventually become the repository of a treasure of around thirty thousand photographs and twenty-five hundred works on paper, open to all. the public. Emin also announced plans to start a residency program elsewhere in Margate, which has struggled economically in recent decades, although a hint of a possible reversal of fortunes emerged in 2011 with Turner’s establishment. Contemporary there.

Emin, who rose to fame in the 1990s as one of the YBAs, or Young British Artists, is perhaps best known for her Turner Prize. My bed, 1998, a work of art featuring its own undone kip, littered with soiled underwear, empty liquor bottles and condom wrappers. Following a cancer diagnosis and the life-saving surgery that left her with a urostomy bag, well documented in his art, Emin began working to preserve his legacy and energize his hometown. Some of the benefits the neighborhood enjoys through the Tracey Emin Foundation include a sculpture park, lectures, and life-drawing classes, all of which are accessible to the general public.

Or: Museum of Modern Art in Paris, Center Pompidou, Musée d’Orsay, Musée National Picasso Paris, Musée Yves Saint Laurent Paris, Musée du Louvre

When: January 29-May 15 (closed April 15 at the Picasso Museum)

Six decades ago, the first fashion show under the name of Yves Saint Laurent (YSL) paraded. To celebrate this important milestone, six Parisian museums where the French designer sought inspiration have collaborated on a city-wide exhibition. Each will combine YSL creations with works by artists such as Mondrian, Picasso, Matisse, Bonnard and Dufy. For example, at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, next to Dufy’s “La Fée Électricité” (“La Fée Électricité”, 1937) will stand three spectacular silk dresses, while the Musée d’Orsay will focus on its fascination with Marcel Proust, who probably inspired Le Smoking de Saint Laurent, the first tuxedo for women. During this time, the National Picasso Museum will explain the influence of the Spanish master on Saint Laurent, from the couturier’s tribute to the sets and costumes of Picasso’s “Ballets Russes” (1976) to his Cubist collection from 1988. –Sarah belmont

Built over four millennia ago, Stonehenge is one of the world’s most famous and mysterious monuments. Who were the people who built it and inhabited prehistoric Britain? “The world of Stonehenge” will show that they were more developed than is generally believed, with established trade links with mainland Europe. One of the undisputed highlights of the show will be the 3,600-year-old Nebra Sky Disc, the oldest extant representation of the cosmos, which was discovered in present-day Germany and will be on display for the first time in the UK. -José de Silva

In his day, the 15th-century Florentine sculptor Donatello was considered “the master of masters”. Despite this, there has not been a major exhibition dedicated to the sculptor’s work for nearly 40 years. That is set to change in March when a vast investigation into Donatello’s work opens in Florence at Palazzo Strozzi and the nearby Museo Nazionale del Bargello, which houses the sculptor’s most important collection of works, including “David” (c. 1440). Smaller incarnations of the show will be seen at the Gemäldegalerie in Berlin in September and at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London next year. – Cristina Ruiz

With only three primary colors (plus black and white) and two ordinal directions, Piet Mondrian took painting to new levels of abstraction. His influence on modernism was immense – in the visual arts as well as in design, architecture and fashion. To mark the 150th anniversary of his birth in the Dutch city of Amersfoot, several museums are organizing major surveys of his work. An exhibition at the Fondation Beyeler in Switzerland and at the K20 in Düsseldorf will begin with his first paintings, influenced by Dutch landscape painting and post-impressionism. He will then retrace his evolution while he completely abandoned the representation to achieve his wonders at right angles. -Lee Cheshire

The Art Institute of Chicago and Tate Modern in London have organized the largest Paul Cézanne exhibition in a generation. Simply baptized “Cézanne”, it will cover the artist’s entire career. In Chicago, where the exhibition opens, it will include 90 oils, 40 works on paper and two sketchbooks, although it will be slightly reduced in London (70 oils and 18 on paper). Cézanne (1839-1906) has always been considered an “artist artist” and exerted a great influence on later painters, including Monet, Pissarro, Matisse and Picasso. He remains a source of inspiration, and among the lenders of the exhibition will be Jasper Johns, the American Abstract Expressionist, who will send three key watercolors (plus an oil painting of a nude in Chicago only) from his collection. personal. Technical analysis of the artist’s palette, construction of composition, and mark-making will deepen our understanding of how Cézanne created his paintings. Chicago promises that the show will “reframe Cézanne, a giant in the history of art, for our time.” –Martin bailey

Organizing the world’s largest and most influential contemporary art exhibition in the midst of a pandemic has been difficult, but after some doubts as to whether it could go as planned, Documenta Fifteen must have take place in Kassel this summer. Organized by the Indonesian artistic collective Ruangrupa, it promises to be as much a reflection of our time as the previous editions of this sprawling spectacle which takes place every five years. The artists who have been invited to participate are mostly from southern countries and many of them are activist collectives rather than individuals. They include The Nest Collective from Kenya, La Intermundial Holobiente from Argentina, Keleketla! Library of South Africa and Sa Sa Art Projects of Cambodia. The sites will include a former department store and a former wine depot, as well as more traditional places such as the town’s Fridericianum museum. -Catherine Hickley

Artists of this latter period were also influenced by the European informal art movement. The exhibition concludes with a look at modern art and early contemporary art, including artists such as Youn Myeong-Ro, Lee Sangbeom, and Park Rehyun. It’s a great story, told through the work of 90 artists and 140 paintings, photographs and sculptures. – Scarlet Cheng

People from all over the world flock to Healdsburg during the summer holidays and for the fall harvest. But once the harvest is over and temperatures drop, visitor numbers decline, making winter a great time of year to visit this charming, historic town in Sonoma County, California. Fortunately, winter in this city means daytime temperatures that rarely drop below 60 degrees.

Located along the Russian River, the wine town of Healdsburg sits at the junction of three appellations: Alexander Valley, Dry Creek Valley and Russian River Valley. As a result, it is full of tasting rooms serving world-class wines. And when you’re done with the wine tasting – or if you’re not drinking wine – there are plenty of other things to do in the area.

1. Relax at Bacchus Landing

Sonoma County is home to several of California’s largest wineries producing wines sold around the world. But it is also the epicenter of small family-owned wineries eager to share both their wines and their stories. Bacchus Landing was created as a common space to bring together wine lovers and charming wineries. Six wine tasting rooms, each with their own stylish indoor / outdoor space, surround a spacious plaza dotted with seating areas. To complete the experience, a pétanque court and a market selling food and non-alcoholic drinks.

The Lopez family is at the origin of this unique company. As owners of a small cellar, they understood the challenge of operating a tasting room in a convenient location for visitors. So they developed Bacchus Landing on the outskirts of Healdsburg to make access to small producers easy and fun. Wineries include Aldina Vineyards, AldenAlli, 13th & Third Wines, Roller Coaster, Dot Wines, and Smith Story Wine Cellars. Each winery offers its own tasting menu and visitors can choose to try all or part of it that interests them. If you need a break between tastings, grab a chair and soak up the Californian sun. The whole establishment also accepts animals.

2. Drink more wine

With 425 wineries in Sonoma County – many with tasting rooms in Healdsburg – you’ll never run out of wines to taste on your visit. Around the historic town square are two dozen tasting rooms representing Sonoma’s most famous wineries. Taste, stroll, repeat. When you’re hungry, head to one of the many restaurants, bakeries, and cafes.

Or, step out into the countryside and take in views of rolling vineyards and massive oaks. First, head to the historic Medlock Ames tasting room. Highly renowned for its organic farming practices, Medlock Ames produces rosé, chardonnay, sauvignon blanc and cabernet sauvignon. Next, visit Landmark Vineyards at Hop Kiln Estate producing excellent Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Pro tip: Hopefully the wine tasting translates into the purchase of bottles or even cases of wine. If you’ve landed in the area, check with your airline for shipping options. Alaska Airlines will transport your wine to your home for free if you are traveling to any of the 32 West Coast airports.

3. Eat the food

Where there is good wine, there is also excellent cuisine. And in Healdsburg there are a ridiculous number of great restaurants offering cuisines from all over the world.

For the authentic flavors of Spain, try the Bravas Bar De Tapas, named by Travel + Leisure as one of the top 20 tapas restaurants in the United States.

Seafood lovers will definitely want to make reservations at Willi’s Seafood & Raw Bar. Choose from a wide array of fish and seafood dishes, including oysters on the half-shell, squid, octopus tacos, and caramelized butterfish. Accompany your meal with local wine or beer.

For flavors from the south of the border, head to Guiso Latin Fusion, named one of the top 100 restaurants in 2019 by OpenTable. Led by chef Carlos Mojica, the menu features dishes inspired by Mexico, Spain, Cuba and even Thailand. The wine list includes selections from local wineries.

For a quick meal or picnic, try Oakville Grocers which sells gourmet sandwiches, wood-fired pizzas, fresh baked goods, and local wines and cheeses.

Pro tip: If you visit in winter, temperatures can drop in the evening. Fortunately, most restaurants in Healdsburg offer the option of indoor dining or heated outdoor patios. Also, due to the popularity of restaurants in Healdsburg, be sure to book in advance.

In addition to numerous wine tasting rooms, dozens of upscale boutiques surround the town square of Healdsburg. If you are here before the holidays this is a great place to do some gift shopping. Otherwise, take the opportunity to browse these pretty shops.

Nearby, Forager sells one-of-a-kind home decor items, such as steak knives with rosewood handles, vintage paintings and sketches, and hand-turned wooden bowls. This is a great stopover if you are looking for a truly unique gift.

5. Learn more about the history of the region

It’s easy to focus solely on food and wine in Healdsburg, but it’s an area rich in history, starting with the Native Americans and continuing to the present day. Fortunately, the Healdsburg Museum & Historical Society, housed in the city’s former public library, is dedicated to sharing the history and art of the area with visitors of all ages.

Exhibits include artifacts from the Native American Pomo and Wappo tribes, ancient weaponry and tools, and paintings and photographs by local artists. Entrance to the museum is always free. The museum organizes monthly events that complement the current exhibitions.

6. Browse the vines

While Healdsburg is definitely a place to relax, it can also be an active destination. Instead of driving through vineyards to your favorite tasting room, why not experience it by bike.

Bring your own bike or rent one from Wine Country Bikes and hit the open roads. The options range from moderate to difficult and can last a few hours or several days. Detailed maps are available on its website. Make it easy for yourself and opt for an electric bike. Or if you prefer professional help, book a guided tour that includes a gourmet picnic.

7. Admire the art

Despite its small size, Healdsburg is a powerhouse when it comes to art. In a city of just 11,000 inhabitants, there are two dozen galleries featuring paintings, photographs and sculptures.

The largest gallery is Paul Mahder‘s, housed in a 1940s Quonset hut. With over 8,500 square feet of space, this gallery displays works by national and international artists in a museum-like setting. And since it’s wine country, you can sample your favorite Grapeseed varietals while browsing.

Located in the historic Bank of Italy building, the Stafford Gallery showcases international artists working in a wide range of materials, including bronze and burl sculptures, as well as oil paintings, large photographs format and handmade jewelry.

The Healdsburg Center for the Arts is a non-profit community organization that presents several shows per year featuring local artists. Among its most popular shows is the Young Artist Exhibition featuring more than 400 young people from the region.

Where to stay in Healdsburg

Fans of luxury accommodation will be in for a treat at Healdsburg. There are a plethora of boutique hotels ready to pamper their guests with wine tastings, in-room fireplaces, great linens, curated experiences and much more.

Farmhouse Inn, located in nearby Forestville, offers large rooms with four poster beds, indoor and outdoor seating areas, large soaking tubs, heated bathroom floors, and evening wine tastings. There is also a Michelin starred restaurant on site. This is the type of accommodation where you will want to relax and savor all the amenities.

Located in Healdsburg Square, the Healdsburg Hotel offers oversized bathrooms and original artwork in every room, along with free breakfast and a free snack bar. From the hotel, it is easy to walk to most of the city’s shops, restaurants and tasting rooms.

For something a little more budget-friendly, the Hotel Trio – a Marriott property – is one mile from the square and offers spacious rooms, a welcome bottle of wine, and a full breakfast each day. It also offers a shuttle to town throughout the day.

There is never a bad time to visit Healdsburg. This small town is full of great food, wine and shops all year round. But a visit in winter will result in slightly lower prices and smaller crowds. It is an excellent season for holiday shopping, to enjoy the festive decorations and to appreciate the serenity of the landscapes.

There are a variety of wine experiences and activities in Sonoma County:

The big gala gala is drawing to a close. Saturated with too much food, fun and gifts, we’ve decided “it’s time to ditch some things” this year.

The lifestyle hero of Lee Child’s fictional series starring retired former Marine Jack Reacher suddenly looks attractive. Reacher only has the clothes on his back and a toothbrush. He takes buses, gets off whenever he wants, and only has time to solve one person’s horrible dilemma. Then he buys clean clothes, throws away the dirty clothes and leaves.

In real life, we work for the money to buy more things that need a place to keep them. The bigger the house, the taller our piles of stuff.

Recently, for the second time, I helped sort out an estate. The first time was the effects of my grandmother. As her family sorted out, we remembered the big and small events we had shared as a family. Such a contrast to the ridding of this year after the death of a confirmed bachelor. His three plates, his unused stove, his nearly empty refrigerator and his boxes of stew underscored his celibacy. A few basic clothes, a bed, a lounge chair, a TV and a van with the tools of his mechanic trade said he didn’t need much.

Still, he filled his apartment with “cool things” he found at estate or garage sales. His eclectic tastes included: trains, records, ceramics, knick-knacks, paintings, stamps, coins, Christmas decorations and books. Lovers of garage sales knew him well. One man said, “If I saw him in another room at a real estate sale, I would go around the other way. I knew when we met we would talk for a while.

“When he got it back, he didn’t let go,” another friend commented.

I expected to find the lair of a hoarder. I did not do it. We had plenty of room. We found the three closets stacked at the limit and the walls lined with shelves and loaded display cases.

It didn’t matter what he paid for things, whatever their real value, it didn’t matter anymore. Everything had to be sold, given away or trashed. Just like with my grandparents’ housewares.

In the end, the really cool stuff he left behind came from the stories his friends told about his gregarious nature and the many ways he has helped people. For example, every week he would drive a guy without a car into town to shop for groceries. For a long time, he monitored an elderly woman on a daily basis who lived alone until her health condition forced him to move.

In the back of his pickup truck, he carried tools to change oil or do minor engine repairs to supplement his limited income and help others in a pinch.

“The story that best describes him,” a friend said, “is when he saw a woman with a dead car in the Walmart parking lot. He found out she didn’t need one. new battery, she needed a new starter. So he got one and changed it for her on the spot. “

He hadn’t planned on “what if …” He had planned to appreciate the people he met every day and help where he could.

As we chop down the trees, put away the decorations, and prepare for the New Year that lies ahead, reflect on how things complicate our lives, consume our time, and drain our energy just as Jack Reacher often details. As the New Year approaches, decide to spend your time and energy with people creating memories that last. Those who stay will cherish these shared moments long after the gifts are gone or have been consumed.
