Giles Bailey: World is Sudden

  • 5 July 2017 3-4pm

Giles Bailey and a group of artist collaborators will make a film over one day - in an attempt to unlock the latent power of anonymous artefacts from the collection. Between 3-4pm they will mine the museum’s collection, creating a temporary installation in film.

This performance an outcome of World Is Sudden: Summer Lab is a 7-day programme (5-11 July) of performances, talks, screenings and workshops exploring the north east of England as a context for art production. Led by CIRCA Projects & Giles Bailey with invited artists, hosts and participants.

Anne- James Chaton and Shirley Mann & Leroy McSex

  • 6 July 2017 7:30-9:30pm

Join CIRCA Projects presenting a double bill of performances by Anne-James Chaton (Paris) and Sarah Grundy & Edwin Li (Newcastle)

"POP IS DEAD POP IS DEAD POP IS DEAD POP IS DEAD POP IS DEAD POP IS DEAD. THE KING OF POP IS DEAD."

Anne-James Chaton, his indurate mien impassive and poker-faced, stands as still and stiff as a motorway sign-post, just off-centre on the ample stage of the Gaîté Lyrique in Paris. As his rapid-fire verse gushes from between his lips over a loop of his own voice – "POP IS DEAD POP IS DEAD POP IS DEAD" – each plosive consonant is wedded to a glitched burst of sub-bass to create an insistent, technoid beat pattern.
(The Quietus, Features: The Mic Is Mightier Than The Sword: Anne-James Chaton Interviewed by Robert Barry, 2013)

French sound artist and poet Anne-James Chaton (October 31, 1970, Besançon) has developed an intermedia body of work, based on a close study of the textual materials which make up the everyday life of contemporary society. Often working with everyday printed ephemera – bank slips, shopping receipts, promotional flyers, customer loyalty cards, business cards, bus, train and metro tickets – provides the source of Anne-James’ quests into sound, poetry and visual art, which he develops through solo projects and in collaboration with artists from diverse fields.

He has worked with the group of Dutch post-rock band The Ex and released two albums, The Journalist (2008), and Transfer (2013), with the English guitarist Andy Moor. He worked on the albums Unitxt (2008) and Univrs (2011) by German artist Carsten Nicolai aka Alva Noto. In 2013 he started a trio with Andy Moor and Thurston Moore, guitarist of Sonic Youth. His plastic and visual works, drawn from his writing materials, have been the subject of several solo and group exhibitions in France and abroad.

Software Garden Performance

  • 7 July 2017 7:30-8:30pm

Rory Pilgrim will present a new performance as part of Software Garden, a body of work exploring connections between technology, disability and care as a way of examining larger political frameworks.

As part of World Is Sudden: Summer Lab, Pilgrim will present an evening performance at BALTIC based on a collaboration with participants from the summer school. Inspired by collaborative forms of quick action, improvisation and group making, the performance invites people to encounter a space of joy as a form of resistance and collective experience.

This performance is an outcome of World Is Sudden: Summer Lab, a 7-day programme (5-11 July) of performances, talks, screenings and workshops exploring the north east of England as a context for art production.

Curr-ency

  • 10 July 2017 7-9pm

Free / Camp-over £6 (per-person)

Join CIRCA Projects at the Burnlaw Centre for a final World is Sudden: Summer Lab event!

Exploring the concept of decentralisation (economic, cultural, technological, political) and how it affects art production, through a public event on the topic of a fictitious art collective... ‘CURR-ENCY’ who allegedly operated in the North Pennines in the 1990s.

John Fail with WiS Summer Lab artists will give reflections on the work and legacy of the collective, twenty years later: after a short introduction, participants will give ‘speed presentations’ of 3-5 minutes each, presenting their own viewpoints on the collective in short ‘performances’.

There’s been plenty of hoax-based art creations before and we’re not particularly interested in
making another one just for the sake of it, or to be funny. After Roee Rosen’s Justine Frank, Luther Blissett, etc. there’s not so much joy in subterfuge. But in a workshop about decentralisation, the fictitious collective will (hopefully) be fun, and provide the safety of a constructed identity; a pluralistic approach to self-expression to open up discussion around practices of community, collective, alternatives, parallelism and niches.


This event an outcome of World Is Sudden: Summer Lab is a 7-day programme (5-11 July) of performances, talks, screenings and workshops exploring the north east of England as a context for art production. Led by CIRCA Projects & Giles Bailey with invited artists, hosts and participants.
