The Sky is Falling

Fri 31 March — Sun 14 May 2017

Tue-Sat: 11am-6pm // Sun: 12noon-6pm // Free
Preview: Fri 31 March, 7pm-9pm
0141 352 4900

Black Audio Film Collective, Laura Oldfield Ford, Clara Ianni, Dora Mejía and Carol Rhodes

The Sky is Falling is an exhibition and event programme that presents disparate visual imaginaries, looking at how we organise ourselves in some of the most challenging cities in our world. Exploring human desire and the promise of utopia, it contrasts the perspective of the city from above as envisaged by the modern planner with the moveable, unfixed reality of living in urban space, examining the contradictory senses of dubiousness and hope that we might feel as the sky appears to fall.

Aiming to understand the catalytic potential of cities, we examine what can emerge from different approaches to thinking around urban space. Exploring new horizons, and looking at the city in a form of documentation, the works question how space is controlled through various forms. The exhibition considers the UK’s new towns, a social and architectural form offering a modern solution to the overcrowding of industrial cities like Glasgow. Exploring the social effect of Modernist projects, Laura Oldfield Ford’s work finds form in sound, painting, zines and installation – poetic and visceral responses to histories of social housing and subculture. Carol Rhodes’ bird’s-eye view paintings provide an insight into the city as infrastructure, the winding, people-less roads telling us something of the construction of the city as a subjective, imaginative form.

Crossing the ocean, we also look at the Americas as a political horizon in which to find large urban spaces that also define our modernity. Clara Ianni’s work maps issues of mobility through cities today as well as the social destruction of ‘then.’ She interrogates the formation of Brasilia, through an interview with city planners Oscar Niemeyer and Lucio Costa, exploring the social unrest inflicted by moving the capital inland. Medellín-based Dora Mejía’s installations are invested in how we navigate the city through different perspectives, often drawing our attention to the space of the cosmos. The Garden of Eden resonates with the idea of the Global City, where growing surveillance becomes a metaphor for temptation and sin. Twilight City, a film directed by Reece Auguiste for the Black Audio Film Collective, maps a particular version of London’s social and cultural operation and experience. Introduced by a poetic, rhythmical narrative, the video essay binds personal stories with the constant pressure of London’s changing form.

Supported by LUX, Film Hub Scotland and the BFI Film Audience Network.

CALQ Artist in Residence at CCA
Geneviève Chevalier

Sat 1 April — Fri 30 June 2017

0141 352 4900

As part of her project Birds Avant-garde initiated in 2016, Geneviève Chevalier is investigating the modifications of the natural distribution range and migratory routes of various bird species induced by climate change. On site during the 2017 spring migration, the artist will do research to become acquainted with the Scottish bird species and gather photo, video and sound samplings of sighted birds. A collection will be created in the end, based on the figure of the migratory bird being at the forefront of changes that are already unfolding.

During her fieldtrips to Scotland’s various national and regional parks, she plans to try out and implement protocols traditionally used by biologists to survey birds. Using some of the data made available through the local tracking systems and networks of ornithologists, Geneviève Chevalier will produce image-based works on the idea of the survey. The project will take the form of an installation, being composed of a series of map-like collages, photographs and video works. Remixing illustrations coming from outdated handbooks of birds to create 'new' species, the artist’s series of three-dimensional collages show literally birds in disguise, reflecting the abnormally rapid natural sorting process which is currently taking place. Migratory patterns, corresponding to specific routes, are drawn on watercolour paper and birds appear sometimes under and sometimes over a film of polyester, creating layers of images, some being more distant and only partially visible. As a natural science museum displaying frozen-like specimens and representations of animals in vitrines, Chevalier’s collection will propose different types of representation and information, organized according to an iconographic system inspired by birds.

Counterflows

Fri 7 April — Sun 9 April 2017

www.counterflows.com

 

AC Projects presents the sixth edition of Counterflows – a celebration of underground music, featuring artists from around the world bound together by their questioning spirit and refusal of easy categorisation. Taking place in venues across Glasgow, with CCA as the festival hub, Counterflows believes that the underground belongs to a myriad of voices and is best engaged with when we come together, share ideas, break down borders, challenge hierarchies and push boundaries.

This year sees one of Counterflows’ most ambitious projects – a new multichannel sound and light installation which will be at CCA throughout the festival. Created and curated by Mark Fell, with works by Rian Treanor and Nakul Krishnamurthy, the project responds to the systems and processes of Carnatic music in South India.

Late Night Counterflows Social - with Olimpia Splendid, Anxiety and DJs

Fri 7 April 2017

11pm, £5 via Eventbrite, Saramago Courtyard / 18+
Book online
/ 0141 352 4900

Counterflows late night soirees are becoming a bit of a tradition on the Glasgow calendar and 2017's festival continues this with a blasting night of no-core fun.

Olimpia Splendid sound a bit like all our favourite guitar bands rolled up into one. Made up of three woman at the beating-heart of the Helsinki art and music underground – Heta Bilaletdin, Jonna Karanka and Katri Sipiläinen – they make wiry, hypnotic and out-of tune DIY punk with guitars, bass and a drum machine. Reliably brilliant weirdo imprint Fonal Records released their debut 7” EP in 2013, which was followed by a full-length debut in July 2015.

“This wonderful Finnish trio sound like Royal Trux, The Dead C and the troublemaking witches from Macbeth, stirring their pot with grease and glitter… Party music for the tipping point before things get messy.” – The Wire

Ashley Paul - Intimate & Solo

Sat 8 April 2017

1.30pm & 2.30pm, £5 via Eventbrite, Cinema
All ages
Book online - 1.30pm
/ Book online - 2.30pm / 0141 352 4900

Ashley Paul, Counterflows 2017's featured artist, will perform two intimate and solo sets in the CCA Cinema, with audiences limited to twenty per show.

Since 2014, Counterflows’ featured artists have introduced our audiences to new projects and curious collaborations, spanning a wide range of their work and highlighting aspects of their practices in new contexts.

Ashley Paul is an American performer/ composer currently based in London. We were first attracted to Ashley’s work by her striking take on song form; a delicate but utterly focussed tip-toeing between melodic free-form structures and scratching, scraping, clattering sound, bridging the liminal gap between intimate bedroom folk styling and the unpredictable dynamics of early British improvisation. Despite being schooled in jazz and improvisation, Ashley subverts and re-configures learned practice in a way that feel oddly singular, allowing her to craft an unvarnished and deeply personal form of music.

“Is it arranged? Is it made up on the spot?… sometimes sounds as if she’s got nothing to do with any tradition at all - rather, a songwriter with a diaristic, private and flexible sense of what a song is.” – New York Times"

Line Vocabulary with Neil Davidson and Arild Vange

Sat 8 April 2017

2pm, Free on the door, Intermedia / All ages
0141 352 4900

Performance by Neil Davidson and Arild Vange, and a discussion on the relationship between the art works, the writing and translation process, and the influence on improvisation on these.

Neil Davidson and Norwegian poet/translator Arild Vange have been working together since 2008 on improvised performances (readings), theatre collaborations, theoretical talks about improvisation and literature, and occasional publications. They have performed in Norway, Germany and the UK. Their theatre company DVELL is based in Trondheim, Norway.

This book launch is presented in association with Aye Aye Books who are publishing the new English version of Line Vocabulary, a book by Arild Vange and Per Formo translated from Norwegian by Neil Davidson. There will be a performance by Neil Davidson and Arild Vange followed by a discussion on the relationship between the Per Formo’s art (which gave rise to the poems), the writing and translation process, and the influence of improvisation on these.

Arild Vange is a poet, artist and translator. Following some early years studying economics and singing in punk/new wave bands, his first novel Ene og Alene was published in 1990. He lived for many years in Germany and for five years, occupied the honorary writer’s residence Adrianstua, belonging to the city of Trondheim from 2008 – 2013. Vange has written several critically-acclaimed books of poetry. His translations include works by Franz Kafka, Georg Trakl, Peter Waterhouse, Yoko Tawada, Thomas Kling and Anja Utler. He collaborates regularly with musicians including Lemur, En En En and Neil Davidson. In 2012, the improvisation company DVELL was formed around his long standing collaboration with Davidson. Vange is also working with the visual artist Per Formo.

Neil Davidson is a composer, writer and guitar player specialising in improvised music - including a new pop/composition project with Anneke Kampman of Conquering Animal Sound, a longstanding project with Norwegian poet Arild Vange, and regular collaborations with Michael Duch, Lemur, Jean-Luc Guionnet, Mariam Rezaei, Liene Rozite and Fritz Welch. He is also in the groups Asparagus Piss Raindrop (glitter ball of collaborative composition), The Final Five (exquisite corpse of free jazz), Yoke of Blood (lady garden of death metal), Muris (a cat with €50) and Glasgow Improvisers Orchestra.

A Carnatic Paradigm - Talk

Sat 8 April 2017

12noon, Free on the door, Creative Lab / All ages
0141 352 4900

Frances Morgan of the Wire will chair this Q&A session with artists involved with the Carnatic Paradigm Project exploring some of the ideas behind its inspiration.

This year sees one of Counterflows’ most ambitious projects – a new multichannel sound and light installation which will be presented at CCA throughout the festival. Created and curated by Mark Fell, with works by Rian Treanor and Nakul Krishnamurthy, and a series of curated performances by various musicians from the South Indian tradition, the project responds to the systems and processes of Carnatic music of South India.

After last year’s stunning performance by the Carnatic music ensemble to close Counterflows, we asked Mark Fell if he would consider creating a new piece that explores the complex systems present in Carnatic music; how those systems relate to creative practices and musical vocabularies; and the correspondences with his own musical methodologies and critical writings on technology.

In November 2016 Mark, Rian Treanor and Alasdair Campbell spent ten days in Chennai researching Carnatic music. This involved meeting musicians, attending temple performances, observing lessons and exploring the basic fabric that Carnatic music is built on.

The focus of the research visit was not to learn to play Carnatic music or to take part in cross cultural improvisations, but to carefully examine the structures and methods found in this music and to enter into a mutually supportive dialogue with those active in this tradition.

AC Projects acknowledges the continuing support of British Council and Creative Scotland in the realisation of this project.

TalkSeePhotography
FLOW International Photography Festival

Mon 10 April 2017

7pm, Free (unticketed), Cinema
All ages
0141 352 4900

TalkSeePhotography is delighted to present Roddy McKenzie and Matt Sillars who will discuss the impetus and planning of the inaugural international photo festival Flow.

The key goal of the festival is to broaden photographic discourse and to contextualise the North as a real and an imagined territory. To this end, the festival’s curatorial directors group has taken a point of departure in the media's dynamic presence in contemporary society to program a series of exhibitions and events which will take place across the Highlands and Islands.

The work presented ranges from documentary practices to conceptual renderings. In some respects it’s a mix which not only raises questions about how we view and consume photography practices but also how we view and identify ourselves through the links to geographic locations and ideas about identity. The Centre for the North at the University of the Highlands will host discussions, with other collaborators including An Lanntair, Stornoway, Timespan Museum and Arts Centre, Helmsdale amongst others.

Exhibitors include Andrea Gjestvang (NO), Charlotte Haslund-Christensen (DK), Trine Søndergaard (DK), Ragnar Axelsson (IS) and a number of other artists from near and far.

Matt Sillars lectures in Photography at the University of the Highlands and Islands and is a Director on SSHoP’s committee and co-ordinator of the Northern Portfolio meetings for Scottish Photographers. Roddy McKenzie is a photographer and educator. He teaches Visual Ethnography on post-graduate level and is a member of Scottish Photographers. His particular interests lie in performance (theatre, dance and concert) landscape and portraiture.

Abraham Brody
ONGON - Cancelled

Wed 12 April — Thu 13 April 2017

8pm, £14 (£10) + £1 booking fee, Theatre
All ages
0141 352 4900

Please note this event has been cancelled.

‘ONGON’ in the Buryat language means ‘the spirits of our ancestors or of sacred places in nature’. Based on Brody's travels with shamans in the Republic of Buryatia, Eastern Siberia, ONGON is an exploration of the trance in relation to the performer - it is a physical and aural manifestation of transformation through performance.

A solo performance using music, video, and performance, the piece explores concepts of creative expression new and old by evoking traditional shamanic rituals and trance states through expressions of physicality and the use of video, performance and sound. These combine to create a fully immersive viewer experience.

In ‘ONGON’ Abraham Brody explores the shamanic trance, and its relationship to the performer and his spiritual transformation through sound and gesture. The piece incorporates videos from the artist’s own travels to Buryatia alongside musical and physical expressions of the meditative, introspective journey inspired by Buryat shamanic practices.

The show has developed from the premiere performance at Fabrika Centre for Creative Industries Moscow in Autumn 2016 and is created with choreographer/director Stephano Regueros Savvides.

The performance speaks to a contemporary fascination with self-exploration and meditative practices and encourages a deeper level of self-reflection from its viewers.

Ah that’s a good one!

earth, wouldn’t he be liable to get ideas into his head if he
observed us long enough. […] To think perhaps it won’t have
all been for nothing!
