From Here to There, Richard Layzell @ LUX

Online exhibition: From Here to There, Richard Layzell

We are pleased to share a new film by Richard Layzell retracing and remembering his journey to Waterlow Park.

Since the Summer of 2018 artist Richard Layzell has been in residence at LUX as our Creative Ecologist, helping us to think about and interpret the environment of Waterlow Park, in which LUX is located, as part of his wider research project The Naming. Like all of us Richard is under lockdown in London, but living in N4 he can walk to Waterlow Park during his allotted daily exercise. In his affecting new work, From Here to There he reflects on this journey and the park where he has been based for the last two years.

The Naming is a research project challenging and questioning how, through categorization and naming, we distance ourselves from aspects of the natural world and the cultural world. Inspirational figures are Jane Jacobs, Arne Naess (who chained himself to Mardalsfossen waterfall in Norway in 1970 to prevent a dam being built), First Nations beliefs in general and especially the Mi’kmaq community in Nova Scotia and the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus. The work he is producing includes discussions, performances, ‘interventions’, audio recordings, video, photography, ‘imprints’ using the earliest form of printing known as Takuhon, and an ongoing body of creative writing. He is celebrating particular trees and the songs of particular birds, especially the pied butcherbird from Australia.

Richard Layzell works in performance, video and installation – and with industry and communities – has been recognised internationally.

He has been commissioned by most of the major public galleries and museums across the UK and completed many international artist residencies. As an experienced facilitator he’s led creative workshops with people of all ages and backgrounds internationally. His groundbreaking interactive installation Tap Ruffle and Shave, commissioned by Glasgow Museums, toured to London, Manchester and Newcastle and was seen by 100,000 people. He developed a series of innovative residencies in industry, defining the role of the visionaire, expanding the artist’s role in redefining corporate culture and the community of the workplace. He subsequently applied this experience in the cultural sector with an expanded socially engaged practice, working on ambitious projects with communities in Bristol, Swindon, Glasgow, Coventry, Colchester, Liverpool, London, Shanghai, and Perth (Australia), amongst others.

His current work The Naming is manifesting in many different forms and locations, including Ephesus (Turkey), Mardalsfossen (Norway), Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Montreal, Vancouver, Skyros (Greece), London, Bristol, Colchester, Seoul, Sydney and Alice Springs.

London Eats Out – From Mediaeval Times to Today: Online talk @ online
Jun 1 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

Monday 1st June 2020.  7.00 pm.
An illustrated talk by Ruth Hazeldine.

Although we no longer can do so, Londoners have always eaten out. What we now call “Take-Aways” were a feature of London as far back at the 12th century. Fish and chips became our favourite take-away well into the 19th century and the word “restaurant” was not heard until 1816.

We are now restricted to eating in, but it is pleasant to remember when Londoners could eat out!

Coffee and Computers - online help @ Online
Face-To-Face Sessions Suspended… But We’re Still Here To Help!
Due to the ongoing health crisis, and inline with government advice, all face-to-face Coffee & Computers sessions are suspended until further notice.
However, we feel it’s hugely important for our community to stay connected, especially as technology can play a big role in helping us get through this difficult time.  So even if we will not be getting together as groups, we will continue to offer help and support to you however we can:
  • Our info@coffeecomputers.org email address is available to answer questions and offer guidance on all matters & issues
  • Our Coronavirus Support page provides links to official support services and local voluntary groups
  • The weekly emails will continue to keep us all in touch and we will aim to also offer handy tips & advice
  • We have compiled a list of useful Resources & Guides, e.g. how to get started with the various communication tools that are available
  • We are investigating various technologies whereby one-to-one help could be offered using via online video & audio calls
In these unprecedented times, it is very hard to know what will be around the corner. Neighbourhoods & communities are beginning to come together to support & help those who need assistance. Given the role that communications technology plays in the modern world, Coffee & Computers has the potential to play an important part in helping individuals access resources and maintain contact.
Learners: Look out for our update emails, and further “how-to” guides for other online applications and resources.  As always, if you need help getting started, have a specific technical issue, or would like help finding/contacting local Coronavirus support services or voluntary groups please do use the info@coffeecomputers.org email address,  and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Volunteers: Please let us know if you are available to assist with any of these initiatives, or if you have any comments or suggestions.

Flute recital by Andy Martin – Online concert @ Online
Jun 7 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Flute recital by Andy Martin - Online concert @ Online

I will be presenting a highly varied programme of solo flute repertoire including some standard works by Debussy, CPE Bach and Eugene Bozza whilst also including lesser known pieces by Wil Offermans and Nicholas Maw. I will also be premiering a new work that I have commissioned for this recital which is a set of variations written on an original theme by Poulenc. The theme, written for solo flute, is a rare gem in the flute repertoire, seldom performed due to it’s short duration, however the set of variations on the theme extends the beauty of Poulenc’s writing and should be a real highlight of the recital.

I consider myself very lucky in the respect that I have access to a beautiful venue at Jackson’s Lane Arts Centre in Highgate, so am able to present the performance from a unique and atmospheric space rather than from my own home. I am very excited to present this recital and would love to be able to share it with as many people as I can.

I am hoping to also use the performance as an opportunity to raise money, replacing funds that I have lost due to cancelled work during this difficult period. I will be inviting donations towards this cause with a share of the proceeds also going towards supporting the NHS and Jacksons Lane as a venue who are also struggling in this uncertain time.

See Facebook for more details nearer the time, or email Andy: Andyjamesmunro@outlook.com

His groundbreaking interactive installation Tap Ruffle and Shave, commissioned by Glasgow Museums, toured to London, Manchester and Newcastle and was seen by 100,000 people. He developed a series of innovative residencies in industry, defining the role of the visionaire, expanding the artist’s role in redefining corporate culture and the community of the workplace. He subsequently applied this experience in the cultural sector with an expanded socially engaged practice, working on ambitious projects with communities in Bristol, Swindon, Glasgow, Coventry, Colchester, Liverpool, London, Shanghai, and Perth (Australia), amongst others.

His current work The Naming is manifesting in many different forms and locations, including Ephesus (Turkey), Mardalsfossen (Norway), Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Montreal, Vancouver, Skyros (Greece), London, Bristol, Colchester, Seoul, Sydney and Alice Springs.

We are pleased to share a new film by Richard Layzell retracing and remembering his journey to Waterlow Park.

Since the Summer of 2018 artist Richard Layzell has been in residence at LUX as our Creative Ecologist, helping us to think about and interpret the environment of Waterlow Park, in which LUX is located, as part of his wider research project The Naming. Like all of us Richard is under lockdown in London, but living in N4 he can walk to Waterlow Park during his allotted daily exercise. In his affecting new work, From Here to There he reflects on this journey and the park where he has been based for the last two years.

The Naming is a research project challenging and questioning how, through categorization and naming, we distance ourselves from aspects of the natural world and the cultural world. Inspirational figures are Jane Jacobs, Arne Naess (who chained himself to Mardalsfossen waterfall in Norway in 1970 to prevent a dam being built), First Nations beliefs in general and especially the Mi’kmaq community in Nova Scotia and the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus. The work he is producing includes discussions, performances, ‘interventions’, audio recordings, video, photography, ‘imprints’ using the earliest form of printing known as Takuhon, and an ongoing body of creative writing. He is celebrating particular trees and the songs of particular birds, especially the pied butcherbird from Australia.

Richard Layzell works in performance, video and installation – and with industry and communities – has been recognised internationally.

Face-To-Face Sessions Suspended… But We’re Still Here To Help!
Due to the ongoing health crisis, and inline with government advice, all face-to-face Coffee & Computers sessions are suspended until further notice.
However, we feel it’s hugely important for our community to stay connected, especially as technology can play a big role in helping us get through this difficult time.  So even if we will not be getting together as groups, we will continue to offer help and support to you however we can:
  • Our info@coffeecomputers.org email address is available to answer questions and offer guidance on all matters & issues
  • Our Coronavirus Support page provides links to official support services and local voluntary groups
  • The weekly emails will continue to keep us all in touch and we will aim to also offer handy tips & advice
  • We have compiled a list of useful Resources & Guides, e.g. how to get started with the various communication tools that are available
  • We are investigating various technologies whereby one-to-one help could be offered using via online video & audio calls
In these unprecedented times, it is very hard to know what will be around the corner. Neighbourhoods & communities are beginning to come together to support & help those who need assistance. Given the role that communications technology plays in the modern world, Coffee & Computers has the potential to play an important part in helping individuals access resources and maintain contact.
Learners: Look out for our update emails, and further “how-to” guides for other online applications and resources.  As always, if you need help getting started, have a specific technical issue, or would like help finding/contacting local Coronavirus support services or voluntary groups please do use the info@coffeecomputers.org email address,  and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
Volunteers: Please let us know if you are available to assist with any of these initiatives, or if you have any comments or suggestions.
