Artprojx presents

Lions & Tigers & Bears

by

Nick Abrahams

at

The Horse Hospital. The Colonnade, Bloomsbury, London WC1N 1JD 

Exhibition dates: 28th June – 19th July 2014

Open: Monday – Saturday 12-6pm

In association with The School of Sound

Lions & Tigers & Bears by Nick Abrahams

about the works in the show …

on the main screen:

EKKI MUKK – a tale of a man, a snail and a fox. The precursor of the 7 inch single

YOUR HEART IS THE COMPASS – in the darkest hour, a snail could be the one to lead you out of danger.

‘FOREVER’S GONNA START TONIGHT’ – a documentary of the Hampstead wildman, who comes out of the woods looking for change,

on the smaller monitor:

BALLAD OF A LONELY WILDMAN – rare images of the London wildman caught on camera contrasts with frankly amateur footage by Patterson of Bigfoot, which some people believe to be fake.

‘EKKI MUKK’ ANIMATIC – this is how i planned ‘ekki mukk’. Music of Sigur Ros illustrated by sketches of what I wanted to film.

FLARE – middle aged men on the Heath at night.

DOGHOUSE – dogs ‘dancing’ to the music of Iggy Pop

the sleeping fox:

the audio recording is of a real 3 legged fox, Miss Snooks, who lives in her own flat near Brighton. It was recorded by hiding microphones around the comfy chair she likes to sleep on. On the wall is a photograph of Felix the fox outside 10 Downing street.

the eating snail:

For something so small and so slow, snails are incredibly successful creatures. And maybe they aren’t so slow after all. But this is how they sound eating.

the Tolpuddle tree:

It seems amazing to me that a tree can be a meeting place, a green room, beneath which the first union used to meet in Tolpuddle. But spending some time there it occurred to me how little the sounds i was hearing would have changed since the days when they used to meet under its boughs.  To this day trade unions gather at Tolpuddle en masse to celebrate their roots.

the wild man:

appears in photos and videos here. The wildman, a relative of the Yeti, Sasquatch and other semi mythical creatures, and crytozoologists are studying his appearances on Hampstead Heath. He seems to be lonely and looking for a wildwoman possibly. His seeming love for power ballads has been baffling scientists, and some find him rather pathetic. Artist Ronnie Lang captured a quick sketch of one of these urban wildmen when visiting London.

water damaged memories:

a selection of photographs entitled ‘Water Damaged Memories’ – which is exactly what they are, a random selection of photographs that were damaged when the my neighbour fell through my garage roof… the rainwater seemed to enhance these images, several of which by chance feature my dear departed friend Mary Hansen who used to play in the band Stereolab.

the 7 inch single:

the second incarnation of the short film ‘ekki mukk’ comes in the form of these audio recordings. They don’t tell the same story, but expand on its vision. Trying to harness the imagination to what we hear in nature, whether the tiniest of sounds, or the beautiful things that we allow to merge into a forgotten background. And if there is a story here, it is that the human voice, in this case the folk singer Shirley Collins, makes sense of life by creating stories …

The third incarnation is currently a feature film script which, with the correct stars in alignment, may one day soon be a feature film about a man walking home in the shadow of the M11 motorway, also entitled ‘Lions and Tigers and Bears’.

the limited vinyl single ‘Lions and Tigers and Bears’ is available here for £5! a bargain! from the Horse Hospital or from Lo Recordings – and includes a free digital download with each copy.

your fortune:

please don’t forget to take a lucky a ‘lions and tigers and bears’ fortune cookie!

all audio pieces recorded in collaboration with Jens Rosenlund Petersen www.tracklay.com

the wild man costume was created by Stephen Fowler http://stephenfowler72.blogspot.co.uk/

animatronics by Adam Wright  http://www.adam-wright.com/ 

drawn portrait of Nick Abrahams as the wildman by Ronnie Lang

photographs of snails and of wildman are a collaboration with Toby Amies, who also collaborated on the video pieces ‘Flare’, ‘Forever’s gonna start tonight’ and ‘the Ballad of a Lonely Wildman’. http://www.tobyamies.co.uk/

the Horse Hospital:

Long may the Horse Hospital spread its nurturing wings over art, music and culture of all forms that otherwise falls between the cracks….

Nick Abrahams and his Friend

Filmmaker, artist, poet Nick Abrahams will be presenting “Lions and Tigers and Bears” an exhibition of photographs, installations and artworks inspired by the lush magic of the British countryside.

The show which opens at The Horse Hospital in London on Friday, examines our changing relationship with nature by inviting the spectator “to use their own imagination to bear on sounds and images which are both extraordinary and overlooked”.

Last year Nick made “Ekki Mukk,” a short film collaboration with Sigur Rós that won the Best UK short film award for 2013. That short forms part of the “Lions and Tigers and Bears” project and also inspired Abrahams’ 7-inch single of the same name:

The single and exhibition include 3 key audio recordings – that of a snail eating, a fox sleeping, and sounds recorded around a tree. The sounds evoke mysterious worlds – the tree is the Martyrs tree in Tolpuddle, under whose branches the first trade union in England met in 1834, to fight for better pay and working conditions… the snail is heard eating, amplified to a level which we can hear and sounding something like a chainsaw – what else would we hear if we could listen closely enough ? And a sleeping fox…. what does a fox dream about ?

A fourth recording features the voice of Shirley Collins, a living national treasure and seminal folk singer, who reads a prose poem by Nick Abrahams, leaving us in the world of fairytales.

A feature film of the “Lions and Tigers and Bears’ project is currently in development.

There will be a live snail race at the opening (6pm to 9pm) and to “please come, bring friends (although not more snails, they can be rather ‘me me me’).”

Lions & Tigers & Bears is the title of the exhibition and a limited 7 inch single by Nick Abrahams. The exhibition is at the Horse Hospital opens Friday 27th June and closing on Saturday 19th July. During the exhibition there will be related screenings, talks, live music.

Nick Abrahams has exhibited internationally, noticeably with his 2 feature length collaborations with Jeremy Deller (‘Our Hobby is Depeche Mode’ and ‘The Bruce Lacey Experience’). Last year Nick made ‘Ekki Mukk’, a short film which forms part of ‘Lions and Tigers and Bears’.

The title ‘Lions and Tigers and Bears’ refers to the fear of the forest that Dorothy feels in ‘the Wizard of Oz’, as well as a way our imagination plays an active part in our relationship to nature.

‘Ekki Mukk’ won the British Council Best UK short film award last year, and the exhibition develops and extends some themes which first appeared in this film.

The single and exhibition include 3 key audio recordings – that of a snail eating, a fox sleeping, and sounds recorded around a tree. The sounds evoke mysterious worlds – the tree is the Martyrs tree in Tolpuddle, under whose branches the first trade union in England met in 1834, to fight for better pay and working conditions… the snail is heard eating, amplified to a level which we can hear and sounding something like a chainsaw – what else would we hear if we could listen closely enough ? And a sleeping fox…. what does a fox dream about ?

A fourth recording features the voice of Shirley Collins, a living national treasure and seminal folk singer, who reads a prose poem by Nick Abrahams, and leaving us in the world of fairytales. The exhibition bears witness to nature and to our changing relationship with it, as the viewer brings their own imagination to bear on sounds and images which are both extraordinary and overlooked. The single and exhibition are part of an ongoing art and film project, which are to be developed further by Nick Abrahams in a future planned feature film.

‘Nick Abrahams pays tribute to his musical collaborator, the humble snail, in this gently mock-heroic portrait (his new exhibition is accompanied by a seven-inch single which samples the sound of a snail eating). It places him in a long tradition of eccentric English Romanticism, finding objects of wonder in overlooked, everyday corners.” The Guardian, 31 May 2014

David Gryn, Artprojx has screened Nick Abrahams film Ekki Mukk at Art Basel in Miami Beach in 2012, curated it for the Artprojx Cinema MOCAtv programme, screened it in Vladivostok, joined Nick on stage at the ICA for a Nick Abrahams film evening in 2013 and premiered ‘Our Hobby is Depeche Mode’ at the Prince Charles Cinema in 2009.

Artprojx, screens, curates and promotes artists’ moving image and other art projects, working with contemporary art galleries, museums, art fairs and artists worldwide. Current projects include: Art Basel in Miami Beach Film 2014, A Central Saint Martins Film Festival 2015, Artprojx Radio and various other screenings and projects.

Artists:

Nick Abrahams, Cory Arcangel, Dara Birnbaum, Pierre Bismuth, Martin Creed, Nathalie Djurberg and Hans Berg, Kota Ezawa, Dara Friedman, Leo Gabin, Theaster Gates, William Kentridge and Philip Miller, Lina Lapelyte, Ryan MacGinley, Ari Marcopoulos, Takeshi Murata, Laurel Nakadate, Rashaad Newsome, Nicola Thomas

 

The films selected are highlights of works that were originally selected and curated by David Gryn for the Film programme at Art Basel in Miami Beach over the last 4 years. The films were all played on the New World Symphony Center’s screening wall in Soundscape Park during the annual art fair.

 

These works all engage with music, rhythm and sound and remain resonant from their initial playing. They all have a power that is far beyond just the work, one that creates lingering memory with the viewer long after the work has been seen and finished. The selection of these was driven by their sound, engagement and that the language needed to digest these works is that of audio-visual. These works reflect on the current trends and modes of communication such as Youtube, TV, animation, gaming, social media and used to create new images, sounds and unexpected connections.

Lions & Tigers & Bears is the title of the exhibition and a limited 7 inch single by Nick Abrahams. The exhibition is at the Horse Hospital opens Friday 27th June and closing on Saturday 19th July. During the exhibition there will be related screenings, talks, live music.

Nick Abrahams has exhibited internationally, noticeably with his 2 feature length collaborations with Jeremy Deller (‘Our Hobby is Depeche Mode’ and ‘The Bruce Lacey Experience’). Last year Nick made ‘Ekki Mukk’, a short film which forms part of ‘Lions and Tigers and Bears’.

The title ‘Lions and Tigers and Bears’ refers to the fear of the forest that Dorothy feels in ‘the Wizard of Oz’, as well as a way our imagination plays an active part in our relationship to nature.

‘Ekki Mukk’ won the British Council Best UK short film award last year, and the exhibition develops and extends some themes which first appeared in this film.

The single and exhibition include 3 key audio recordings – that of a snail eating, a fox sleeping, and sounds recorded around a tree. The sounds evoke mysterious worlds – the tree is the Martyrs tree in Tolpuddle, under whose branches the first trade union in England met in 1834, to fight for better pay and working conditions… the snail is heard eating, amplified to a level which we can hear and sounding something like a chainsaw – what else would we hear if we could listen closely enough ? And a sleeping fox…. what does a fox dream about ? 

A fourth recording features the voice of Shirley Collins, a living national treasure and seminal folk singer, who reads a prose poem by Nick Abrahams, and leaving us in the world of fairytales. 

The exhibition bears witness to nature and to our changing relationship with it, as the viewer brings their own imagination to bear on sounds and images which are both extraordinary and overlooked.

The single and exhibition are part of an ongoing art and film project, which are to be developed further by Nick Abrahams in a future planned feature film.
