Ain Bailey: And We’ll Always Be A Disco In the Glow of Love

3 May–2 June 2019 
Open: Wed–Sun 12–6PM

And We’ll Always Be A Disco In the Glow of Love presents new work by London-based artist Ain Bailey. This will include a commissioned audio composition installed in Cubitt’s gallery within a spatial design by Mexico City based designer Clemence Seilles.

And We’ll Always Be A Disco In the Glow of Love takes Ain’s own sonic biography around loss and thinking through how to sonify grief as a starting point. It asks how we might create a collective dialogue around the personal experience of dealing with death and mourning.

This new work has been developed through conversations with eight close friends who have experienced a bereavement. Ain’s own contribution links these together to form nine distinct parts. These nine contributions centre on the sound(s) of that experience – an audio memory, a song, affect or emotion. The process of working with and from these recordings asks how we think about death sonically and produces a collective composition. The number nine is significant as it draws on the Caribbean funerary tradition of Nine-Nights, in which a wake takes place over several days.

Ain Bailey’s practice involves an exploration of sonic autobiographies, specifically how people use sound to create a sense of place. Central to this is the idea of ‘sonic biography’ is the personal constellation of sounds that form an individual identity and collaboration with performance, visual and sonic artists.

As part of the exhibition Ain Bailey has invited three musicians, Elaine Mitchener, Hannah Catherine Jones and Rebecca Bellantoni to perform live within the space across three weekends in May, responding directly to the context of the exhibition.

A new scenography for the gallery designed and installed by Clemence Seilles continues the collaboration between Cubitt and Seilles initiated at the start of the Structures That Cooperate programme that opened in October 2018. This new design and spatial arrangement is the second part of an evolving support structure to host, hold, make space for (and adapt to) the work of artists, collectives, commissions, film screenings, events and workshops.

Sat 11 May | 3pm a performance by Elaine Mitchener. Born and raised in East London of Jamaican heritage, Elaine Mitchener is a contemporary vocal-movement artist and composer who has worked leading artists as: Moor Mother, Mark Padmore, The Otolith Group, Sonia Boyce, David Toop, Tansy Davies, Van Huynh Co, Irvine Arditti, Apartment House, London Sinfonietta, Steve Beresford, Christian Marclay, Phil Minton, George E. Lewis, Jason Yarde, Alexander Hawkins. Her UK/European performances include: Bimhuis, Café Oto, 56th Venice Biennale, ICA London, Southbank Centre, Maerzmusik/SAVVY Contemporary, London Contemporary Music Festival. She is co-founder of experimental jazz group Hawkins/Mitchener Quartet; founder of electro-acoustic trio The Rolling Calf and featured vocalist with ensemble Apartment House.

Sun 19 May | 1pm – A performance by Hannah Catherine Jones. Hannah Catherine Jones (aka Foxy Moron) is a London-based artist, scholar, multi-instrumentalist, radio presenter and DJ (BBC Radio 3 – Late Junction, NTS – The Opera Show), composer, conductor and founder of Peckham Chamber Orchestra – a community project established in 2013. Jones is currently an AHRC DPhil scholar at Oxford University for which the ongoing body of work The Oweds will be presented as a series of live and recorded audio-visual episode-compositions using disruptive sound as a methodology of institutional decolonisation.

Sat 25 May | 3pm – A performance by Rebecca Bellantoni. is an artist born and living in London, of Caribbean descent. She works with everyday occurrences and abstract them; with a focus on the lives and experiences of Black British people. Researching the smaller communities that have developed with the larger one. Viewing through the lens of pre and post colonial culture, metaphysics, comparative theology, religion and/or spirituality; the crossovers, the aesthetics of them. Simultaneously working with colour and its codes and objects and their ascribed cultural meanings to further question and describe. In terms of material and process, my practice is gleefully sprawling and encompasses video, performance, sound-text, photography, textiles, printmaking, drawing, sculpture, installation, writing and silversmithing.

40_TORRI_SEILLES_2

On-going
Part 1: Oct 25–April 14 2019
Part 2: May 3–ongoing | launches 2 May 2019 6.30–8.30pm
Open during exhibition schedule

In Summer 2018 Cubitt started a conversation with Seilles to discuss a long-term artwork that would re-imagine and implement a new spatial configuration for the gallery space. The invitation to Seilles was to work with Cubitt across a new 15-month programme of exhibitions, events and commission that would depart from Cubitt’s structure as an artist-run cooperative. Seilles would take an active, evolving role of scenographer, designer and collaborator for the gallery space for the whole of the 2019 exhibition and events programme.

As a starting point for this proposed collaboration Cubitt invited Seilles to design and make a series of maquettes (room dividers, seating and work surfaces) for the first exhibition of the 2018/19 programme that opened in October 2018 – Structures That Cooperate. Seilles titled these starting maquettes Vermicelli, which comprised of curtains, stools and cardboard furniture to be manipulated like tools serving transformations and different uses of the space: a conference room, a workshop room, an exhibition room and projection room. These ‘tools’ were then used and adapted for 6-months in support of the public programme of events and workshops and also for the exhibitions Structures That Cooperate: Get Paid! and Lucy Clout: A Symptom

After the initial 6-month period for the first design a second iteration of the design will launch in May 2019 starting by hosting Ain Bailey’s exhibition And We’ll Always Be A Disco In the Glow of Love and then continuing to be used over the summer and subsequent public programme.

Second Tongues Open Call!

second tongues

 

 

Let’s imagine the future of language; Not simply the languages that we hear most often and take up the most space today, nor those that experts predict will survive and those that will not, but every single possible future for all languages that have ever existed,  and for everyone to whom they belong, and those that come to belong.

An open call to take part in the research stages of Second Tongues, a speculative fiction art project by Toronto-based artist Serena Lee.

Second Tongues plays with ideas of language by imagining a future global nation-state that takes an absurdly omnicompetent approach to mandating second language acquisition as a basis for citizenship, exploring the relationship between power, belonging, and language.

Second Tongues will be developed through conversations with London-based language education organisations, migrant worker and newcomers communities, linguistic and social science researchers, and public audiences. This project is a polyphonic framework for critically engaging with experiences of nationhood, kinship, market-driven globalisation as they relate to histories and practices of language.

As part of the project, Serena would like to invite conversations with people who are interested in questions of how and why we learn languages. These conversations will develop to form a collaboratively authored presentation at Cubitt in June 2019.

If you would like to meet Serena for a research exchange conversation, there are bookable sessions of up 40 minutes each for individuals or groups of 2 or more on:

Tues 16 April 11am–3pm

Wed 17 April 5.30–8.30pm

Tues 23 April 5.30–8.30pm

Please contact info@cubittartists.org.uk to book or with any questions.

(please be advised spaces are limited and will be allocated on a first come first serve basis)

Paul Crook and JMC Hayes: new film made with EC1 Multicultural Woman’s Group March 2019

 

Artists Paul Crook and JMC Hayes, resident at St Luke’s Community Centre, created a short film portrait of the EC1 Multicultural Woman’s Group for the occasion of International Woman’s day. They facilitated a number of sessions where members of the community brought along objects of meaning that illustrated a part of their personal story. The resulting conversation and film captured a huge range of interesting subjects from China in the 70s to ritual burials in East Africa, and celebrates communal cultural activity at St Luke’s whether that’s attending dance classes or using the library.

Lucy Clout: A Symptom

nurses test

 

8 March – 14 April 2019.
Wed–Sun, 12–6pm.

A Symptom – a body of work by London-based artist Lucy Clout brings to Cubitt a set of propositions that in part offer up questions of self-organising, passive and active participation.

Sculptural and video pieces bring together research around the close readings of bodies in relation to medical diagnostic narratives, queer reproduction and pleasure. The creation of new knowledges, their distribution and the ability to access them is examined through the work via references to online communities where the internet is activated as the site of extreme publicness and privateness.

A Symptom talks to the possibility of [digital] screens for communication and community or screens as modes of privacy and concealed activity. Nurses, a 6 minute film, specifically references technology and online forums for sharing and organising in this instance around health and diagnosis and in relation to the inequitable availability of technology and kinship. The second film in the space Nurses 2, shown on a flatscreen monitor, reveals the construction of narrative, the filming and editing process with friends. Questions around self-organising, passive and active participation are addressed through a withheld subjectivity and with clouded transparency not to universalise what this can mean.

“The work comes out of a specific time spent in an attic flat on the Scottish border. A sickness of now, a cure of now, a pleasure of now too – understood via bodily image production, projections and interpretations.

These sets of work are not an argument but a set of stories and tones – the sociopathic CEO leveraging the single drop of blood as oracle, a website on which orgasm sounds are shared and discussed, the monitoring of cervical and ocular mucous, a body coded as infertile or aroused.

I imagine ‘Nurses 2’ as an obscure set of footnotes, or silent backing singers. Tone is created in the filtering of screens and cameras. Both bluntness and blur are used in a performance of pleasure against interpretation.” – Lucy Clout

The invitation to Lucy Clout from Cubitt’s Curatorial Fellow Louise Shelley also makes transparent the position of friendship, drawing on a shared history of exchange, support, trust and positions developed in parallel and in difference. Whilst not a subject of the work, this is a structure inherent in its display at Cubitt.

A text by writer Lizzie Homersham is also made available which builds on a conversation and an essay published as part of Solvent Magazine an exhibition by Lucy as part of Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival 2018.

In October 2018 Cubitt’s public programme started organising under the title Structures That Cooperate, an ongoing programme that talks to Cubitt’s context as an artist-run co-operative. Events, workshops and artworks have so far shown approaches to organising, economies and collective formats, imaginaries and realities. A Symptom is the first of two spring exhibitions that work to extend and complicate these starting enquiries through solo authored presentations that address possibilities for collective mobilisation from personal positions and politics.

The work presented builds on work made during a six-month residency Lucy undertook with Berwick Visual Arts and Berwick Film & Media Arts Festival in 2018.
