Roderick Buchanan - Beck’s Futures bottle design (2000)
Gordon Matta-Clark Days End (1975)
Documentation of this work is currently showing at Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool as part of a larger show that makes a link between the Piers in New York and Liverpool’s docklands.
The Matta-Clark section was in the main ground floor gallery and consisted of a number of prints and documentation as well as a 23min long silent film that had originally been shot in super 8. As I was sitting watching this film I couldn’t help but imagine the soundscape he would have created. (Note to self, it can be ordered from EAI here).
Ivor Cutler - I Worn My Elbows Down To The Bone
Years ago, hmm.. probably about twenty one years ago (sigh) I got chatting to a friendly guy who reckoned he had lived on the same street as Ivor Culter in London for a while. He used to see Ivor on his bike and said he had witnessed him at the bakers asking for some of yesterdays bread buns and then asking for a discount as they were out of date.
