Ephemeros

Private Viewing: Fri 6th May 5pm Daily 7th – 10th May: 11am – 4:30pm Ephemeros is an exhibition organised by 13 photography students from MMU and taking place at the venue; Kraak Gallery. The show is a platform for upcoming artists to exhibit their views of the world; each one of them having a very personal approach. The exhibition is a statement of the ever changing —- . Unlike Painting or any other art, photography is evolving fast because of new technologies hence it is sometimes taken for gra…nted as an art form. This is an opportunity for the viewer to give another chance to photography, separated from its familiarity with publicity and any other commercial use. “…It is a matter of surrounding with a frame a portion of one’s cone of vision, while standing in the right place at the right time. Like chess, or writing, it is a matter of choosing from among given possibilities, but in the case of photography the number of possibilities is not finite but infinite.” –John Szarkowski Come to the opening night, drinks provided, and a chance to talk with the artists. http://www.ephemeros-exhibition.co.uk/...

Please follow the link for more info or visit http://kraak.co.uk/ Xup The Different Animal album was born up against the wall… pushed into a corner… biting back. Recorded between March 2009 and October 2010… the album grew a virtual universe around itself, a shell-like exterior, becoming a self contained little capsule. Different Animal is part ‘Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid’ and part ‘Hayao Miyazaki’s Princess Mononoke’. Different Animal is the second album by Xup. Xup is ilana on vocals, 1972 Fender Mustang bass, borrowed guitar and the drums.   “Different Animal sounds something like Joy Division making an art-house B movie starring Sonic Youth and Patti Smith…” www.music-news.com   “Possessed of a predatory post punk prowl and gouged by a distractively dead eyed sparsely detached noir stained schlock… It curdles and twists to a damaged and dented swamp dragged blues dialect, it aches and howls with a deeply penetrating psychosis that at times makes Siouxsie and the Banshees’ ’the scream’ sound like a sunny walk in the park… A torn and tortured beauty…” www.losingtoday.com   Different Animal is out now @ http://xupmusic.bandcamp.com/ and on itunes, amazon and spotify.   www.xupmusic.co.uk ::WA†ER §IGNS:: WATER SIGNS were formed...
