      We can print on most uncoated papers. We only have a limited range of stock and order in for most big jobs. We would prefer to test the stock you have in mind first. As soy ink can struggle to dry on certain stocks. We can also print on envelopes

      As the complexity of all print jobs vary we have no rigid price list, we quote based on each job individually. We are happy to provide you with quote, Please email with the following specified: Description, number of colours, quantity, intended paper weight, paper size.

      Call & Response has a new home!

      We have just installed our 13.1 speaker system in our new gallery space at Enclave in Deptford, South London. We will be opening on 26th September as part of Deptford X launch night

      In conjunction with the opening of our new space at Enclave in Deptford, Call & Response will present a rolling programme of multichannel sound works for Deptford X and Art Licks Weekend. In 13 channel audio, C&R will audition pieces by Robert Van Heumen, Michael J Schumacher, Ralph Steinbruchel, Jacob Kirkegaard, Freida Abtan, Tom Slater, Jeremy Keenan, Nabil Ahmed and Matt Lewis.

      Call & Response

      Call & Response is an independent sonic arts collective, serving as a focus for sound arts practice in London. Our aim is to provide an artist run space for the exhibition and performance of sonic artworks, reflecting the emerging interest in the use of the auditory in contemporary art.

      C&R will help artists develop their practice, providing high quality technical resources as well as education and training opportunities. We aim to critically engage with audiences by exploring different modes of participation through workshops, lectures, symposia and publications.

      Through building and supporting a community of practitioners both within the UK and internationally, we aim to host the creation of new work and the exchange of ideas, and create alliances with similar project spaces, institutions and artists.

      Curators: Jeremy Keenan / Matt Lewis / Nabil Ahmed / Tom Slater

    • Daryl Brown – I See Silhouettes

      Residency: 1 November to 27 November. Exhibition: 29 November to 20 December.

      Daryl Brown’s sculptures combine an eclectic range of materials and form with a process that is as playful as it is considered. Immersed in a pursuit of process and metamorphosis of materials the work bears the scars of the making. Built up over time from an accumulation of materials, the detritus of his landscape fuse with more traditional materials to form dualistic forms. Spatially involving, and founded in a formal approach, the objects strive for gravitas while almost careering into ruin.

      Residency: Saturday 1 November to Thursday 27 November
      Exhibition Dates: 29 November to 20 December, Thursday to Saturday, 12.30-5.30pm

      As a sculpture, the constituent factors to consider are material, time, space, and gravity.

      The demarcation of space is intrinsic to how we navigate our way through life.

      Draw a line on a page.

      A few months ago I was working on a piece (it was to become Hummingbird), a sort of biomorphic blob, made from angled ply, built upon a cross-section structure. It wasn’t going well, and I was starting to consider it a lost cause… the form wasn’t working and more than anything it seemed dismissive of the space in which it inhabited. It rejected space. After some while considering this, I realised if I was to use the central cross section as my starting point, I could imagine it as a grid expanding out of the piece into the surrounding space . From there I could choose points on this imaginary grid to build upon, growing the piece as different layers reached further out from the central core. Space began to occupy areas of the sculpture, as the sculpture claimed fragmented areas of its own. Space became the crucial component and I was plotting my way through it like a cartographer.

      When considering my residency with Lubomirov-Easton, my primary interest is in how my work can be used to explore the space. I see the display-case-like gallery as a single pixel of space into which I will impart a vector field. Over the course of my stay I will attempt to pull out these vectors, to twist and divide the space through sculptural intervention. I aim to create an immersive environment that exposes a relationship to space and material, while referencing our ever increasing engagement with the digital space.

    • Third Text

      Ongoing

      Third Text is a highly-regarded bi-monthly journal offering critical perspectives on art and culture.

      Third Text enclave deptford

      www.thirdtext.org
      thirdtext@btconnect.com

      Third Text has established its key position at the critical interface of contemporary art practice and theory with specific focus on the impact of ‘globalization’. In its twenty-six year history the journal has created an archive of knowledge production to benefit artists, researchers and art historians worldwide.

      Third Text took a pioneering interest in the exclusionary zones of ‘centre’ and ‘periphery’ and challenged Eurocentric and ethnocentric notions inherent to aesthetic criteria that marginalized or neglected the work of culturally diverse contemporary artists. The journal moved on to develop its postcolonial discourse in the direction of institutional critique, and it now seeks to address the complex cultural realities that are emerging and competing for recognition in the globalized artworld.

      The crucial issue today is the critical appraisal of contemporary art in the context of this globalized artworld, without a centre, and yet one where the spectre of neocolonialism is ever present. What are the commercial and institutional forces that are shaping art history today? Who is deciding on the present ‘value’ of art and for which audience?

      Third Text has adapted its goals to the changing conditions of the global artworld but its fundamental aim remains the advancement of contemporary art practice in the context of of the art market and institutional forces that obstruct a truly critical perspective on the reception and evaluation of art.

      Third Text has been instrumental in launching a series of independent art journals: Third Text Asia in Pakistan; Third Text Africa in South Africa, Tercer Texto in Peru, and the forthcoming Terceiro Texto in Brazil. Third Text has also published numerous books on art, under its former Kala Press and current Third Text Publications imprints, and is planning further publications.

      Six issues are published annually, online and in print by Routledge, Taylor & Francis, UK. The journal invites contributions to its special and general issues.

      Böhmen und Mähren Kunst – Stories from the sewer of Europe

      The Czech Republic is the polar opposite of all real or imagined inhospitable lands. There is nothing here that might inspire respect for nature or fear of its elements. It is simply an adorable country, an enlarged village rock garden – if you have those things in Germany and know what they are. The Czech Republic is a former part of a now-defunct, repeatedly failed state that eagerly anticipated its demise. Its next-to-last resurrection, which was in exchange for the life of just one Jew, Hilsner, led to the Second World War. If there had been no Czecho-Slovakia (and later the Czech Republic), it would have been possible to build a motorway from Berlin straight to Munich, the world would have never heard the term “humanitarian bombing”, and robots would still be called automatons. The most important figures in modern Czech history are tatíček (“little father”), a third-rate philosopher in riding boots surrounded by naked children, Hitler, Mr. Werich, the two-headed monster Klavel, and agent 009 Schwartsumberg.

      So let’s only talk about this accursed region without using its name, about this crater that looks as if it had been carved by a meteorite, whose margins provide natural defense but also isolation. Rivers flow from it as from a cracked jar, dirty, acidic and steaming because the Czechs produce electricity by burning old rags from the mounds of garbage cheaply acquired from the rich Germans. The Czechs are known as the only Slavs to hide their crimes against humanity. They have stuck their own foot in extreme unction, and yet they hand out advice until the hyenas start to choke with laughter. They hate all the surrounding tribes, except for the Roma, whom they consider to be descendents of the Romanians – who refused to occupy the crater in 1968. The Roma don’t have to work; they can drink, dance, and swear in their own language. Czechs don’t dance. And foreigners in general are not popular – except for Americans, whom they have never seen but they like the flag.

      Although in such an environment art flourishes about as much as in the Gaza Strip, every now and then an artist appears who is willing to work in public despite the unctuous admiration of the uneducated and vulgar populace. One such public-yet-invisible artist is Pavel Reisenauer.

      A grumpy loner, a skeptical mystic and a Christian in a tight spot

      “Pavel Reisenauer was born on 7 October 1961 in Prague, where he lives to this day. After graduating from secondary school, he held various jobs (including work as a furnaceman and security guard) that allowed him to work on his paintings. He has three daughters. He has been employed by the weekly Respekt magazine since 1991, and has published a book, 209 Drawings and 33 Paintings. He has held numerous exhibitions, and in order to avoid succumbing to this temptation in the future, he recently set up a website gallery of his work” – which is also where this short bio comes from: www.pavelreisenauer.cz.

      Like his web gallery, Reisenauer’s work can be divided into two areas. The first includes journalistic illustrations for Respekt, the Saturday insert “Orientation” for the Lidové noviny newspaper, and book illustrations for various publishers. Thanks to his illustrations – with their characteristic style and unrelenting humor – he is known to the Czech public if not by name then definitely from his drawings on the cover of these publications. The second area of his work are his non-commissioned drawings and paintings, through which we can get to know him in his own world: “Where solitude beginneth there endeth the market-place; and where the market-place endeth, there endeth also the noise of the great actors, and the buzzing of the poison-flies.” Aliens, the underworld, suburban landscapes, daughters, out-of-place animals, sex, alcohol, and above all loneliness. Also, the streets of Reisenauer’s favorite neighborhood, Prague’s Nusle district, where tourists and developers are still rare, and so it remains a haven for outsiders and crumbling tenements in a sold-out city. In recent years, he has preferred to work in series that give him greater freedom. The pictures in each series share a common motif, technique, use of color and style. These include the computer drawings from The Ten Commandments and The Seven Deadly Sins, as well as the temperas from Streets and the recently completed Nusle.

      A visitation every day

      This artist – who has successfully avoided public recognition and exhibits only rarely – has decided to bring to Berlin his highly personal interpretation of the Ten Commandments. Reisenauer has taken these basic rules for Jews and Christians (as contained in the Catholic catechism) and transformed them in his image, knocked them from the diction of church language and down to the ground of his reality: God appears as Superman, divine punishment falls upon a desolate suburban street, graffiti artists spray-paint a Jesus fish on the hood of a car, a legless mother has been taken on an outing in her wheelchair; we see evidence of suicide (far more common than murder), a slightly vulgar drawing of a penis attacking Venus, a black hand painted on the wall of a ransacked house, a skull that looks as if it has been pulled from a mass grave, its mouth grown shut, a woman depicted as a childishly gussied up and romantically enamored monkey, and superhumanly oversized mafiosi who remain unseen by passers-by. When asked where why he felt the need to confront these two traditional Christian subjects, Pavel Reisenauer says: “Because in the end I am a Christian, primarily one in a tight spot.”

      To be continued…
      And this is just the beginning. Another series is in the works – The Seven Deadly Sins. It will be exhibited in London too.

      At this exhibition, Reisenauer will present his latest as-yet-unexhibited series, The Seven Deadly Sins. Here, Reisenauer focuses his critical and ironical gaze on himself. The theme required a more simplified approach as compared to the previous series: the square-format paintings are made in black on a white background, emphasised at most with foreboding details in a devilish red that is the only similarity with the previous series. With just one exception, the digital images’ main subject is the artist himself. His figure, accompanied by just its shadow, moves through a space without background, accompanied only by symbols or attributes of the relevant sin: a proud magician (more like a con-artist juggler of nothingness in a raggedy bathrobe and worn t-shirt); a harried money-chaser; a dreamer drooling for things he doesn’t have; an unhappy and not too attractive lecher with a strangely non-prurient expression; a drunkard who has been transformed into his bottle; a raffish loner and implacable ironist within whom pride struggles with insecurity and mystical faith with disillusionment, skepticism and resignation: the final image shows him in the position that he himself would probably like to adopt forever.

      Nov 15th 12-6pm Artist day – drop in and meet the LUX13 artists

      How Does The Group Function? is the first exhibition by LUX13 Critical Forum and consists of new work by 14 artists, including multi-channel video installations, sculptural moving image works and digital prints. The exhibition is accompanied by a publication of artists pages and a DVD – part process notes and part artworks, it acts as an account of some aspects of the year the LUX13 group have spent together.

      About LUX13

      LUX13 Critical Forum was formed initially as a monthly discussion group for artists who work with the moving image, to talk about ideas and practice in a mutually supportive environment and in dialogue with LUX. The group comprises 15 artists, working with a range of ideas and themes, within multiple social and cultural contexts.

      Off-site screening programme

      Earlier this year, each of the LUX13 members made a three minute film in response to a phrase or word provided by another person in the group. These films were screened at Arcadia Missa, London (Jun 2014), Millenium New York City (Sep 2014) and at Castlefield Gallery (Oct 2014). To accompany How Does the Group Function? LUX13 have programmed three additional off-site screenings with new collaborations:

      November 3rd / 7pm / LUX13, part of Southampton Film Week / Sonar Cinema, Solent University
      November 6th / 7pm / LUX13 and Film Material Soup / Trinity Laban, London SE8 3DZ
      November 21st / 7pm / LUX13 with the Glasgow and Dublin LUX groups. Trinity Laban, London SE8 3DZ

      The LUX13 exhibition and publication have been made possible by support from Arts Council England.

      preview: Friday 26 September 2014, 7 to 9 pm
      exhibition: Saturdays and Sundays, 12-6pm until 25 October

      Yes

      That night in September, when everything had been said, and there was nothing doing anymore but wait for the dawn, the counting. Hope and fear heightened in this process of becoming. The future might be different. No, the future could only be different. There would be no ‘status quo’ and no going back.
      The hours of passage, when the sediments of disappointment are not allowed to settle. Not yet.

      No

      Or that year, when the waters were rising, slowly, silently, relentless on the plains -would it ever stop? – and time in suspension waiting for their recede. Car and trucks going nowhere, lumps of isolation as the land dissolves. A new space of water and sky forms, a blank space; recalls diluvian myths.

      Yes

      A hill, promontory, a high point of land and a promise of placemaking. New homes, shops, offices, leisure facilities to accommodate growth. The old scheme has done its time; the economy has changed; a community dispersed and instead a community to-be waiting to move in. The mass production of space. But right now, the rubble, the ruins and a temporary natural landscape. A pause between destruction and reconstruction.

      No

      Debris, steel boxes, steel frames, oak frames, lowliness and sacredness, multicoloured nettings, bomber jackets, pigeon spikes, Perspex and airline blankets, jumpers and stickers, everything equal, the components un-struture in a limbo without status. A systemic confusion discrediting the world of reality, the elements escape hierarchy and cognitive classification. They are rendered evocative devices, emblems collected into an unorganised whole.

      No

      The moment after the decision is made, move effected, and before the outcome has yet to impact, that threshold holds its own potential. The split second before you hit cold water. It’s a temporal interstice, a space for a breath

      Yes

      re-aggregation

      No

      A comma, unweighted by resolution

      Perhaps.
