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.

LUX/ Highgate Cemetery Talks: Claudia Jones @ LUX - online
Jun 26 @ 12:00 am – 11:45 pm
LUX/ Highgate Cemetery Talks: Claudia Jones @ LUX - online

Adjacent to Waterlow Park where LUX is based is Highgate Cemetery, one of London’s finest cemeteries and the final resting place of a number of extraordinary people. During the lockdown when visiting the cemetery is difficult, LUX, in partnership with the Cemetery is organising a series of online virtual visits with thinkers and artists reflecting on life and work of some of the inspirational people buried there.

The first event is a discussion on the life and legacy of Claudia Jones (1915–1964), the pioneering and inspirational Afro-Caribbean radical intellectual, dedicated communist, and feminist who is buried in Highgate Cemetery close to Karl Marx. We will be joined by Carole Boyce Davies, Professor of Africana Studies and English at Cornell University and Claudia Jones scholar, author of Left of Karl Marx: The Political Life of Black Communist Claudia Jones (2008) and editor of a reader of Jones’ writing Claudia Jones: Beyond Containment (2010) and artist Rhea Storr, who in her recent film works has investigated carnival as a space of both celebration and protest, exploring their social structures, costume and language.

 

We are pleased to share the recorded conversation with Carole Boyce Davies and Rhea Storr on our website. The conversation is also accompanied by Rhea Storr’s recent work Bragging Rights (2019).

The history of gin and a ‘virtual’ gin tasting led by Sacred Gin – Online @ online
Jun 26 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Highgate’s own boutique distillery, Sacred Gin, will conduct a remote gin tasting, preceded by a reprise of Ruth Hazeldine’s illustrated history of gin delivered last year at 10A.

Gin samples will be available from Sacred Gin’s new premises in Highgate High Street from June 23rd. Samples will cost £29.95 per person for 5 x 50 ml bottles of various different gins (all Sacred) plus a 50ml sample of Sacred English Dry Vermouth for the Martini, plus a bottle of Fever Tree tonic. There will also be a sheet with some instructions.

Hilary Whitney of Sacred Gin explains: “On the night, each person chooses either Pink Grapefruit Gin or Cardamom Gin to make a G&T with – they should put a tiny amount aside for tasting later – so that they have a drink in their hand when we start.  Ian [Hart] and I will taste through the samples people have given and we will round off the evening with a Martini.”

Participation in this part of the evening will be limited to the first 30 to buy the sample pack.

The talk will begin at 7.00 pm and the tasting at 8.00 pm. To book for the event (whether or not participating in the tasting) click here.

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.

LUX/ Highgate Cemetery Talks: Claudia Jones @ LUX - online
Jul 4 @ 12:00 am – 11:45 pm
LUX/ Highgate Cemetery Talks: Claudia Jones @ LUX - online

Adjacent to Waterlow Park where LUX is based is Highgate Cemetery, one of London’s finest cemeteries and the final resting place of a number of extraordinary people. During the lockdown when visiting the cemetery is difficult, LUX, in partnership with the Cemetery is organising a series of online virtual visits with thinkers and artists reflecting on life and work of some of the inspirational people buried there.

The first event is a discussion on the life and legacy of Claudia Jones (1915–1964), the pioneering and inspirational Afro-Caribbean radical intellectual, dedicated communist, and feminist who is buried in Highgate Cemetery close to Karl Marx. We will be joined by Carole Boyce Davies, Professor of Africana Studies and English at Cornell University and Claudia Jones scholar, author of Left of Karl Marx: The Political Life of Black Communist Claudia Jones (2008) and editor of a reader of Jones’ writing Claudia Jones: Beyond Containment (2010) and artist Rhea Storr, who in her recent film works has investigated carnival as a space of both celebration and protest, exploring their social structures, costume and language.

 

We are pleased to share the recorded conversation with Carole Boyce Davies and Rhea Storr on our website. The conversation is also accompanied by Rhea Storr’s recent work Bragging Rights (2019).
