John Cooper Clarke- Beasley Street

 

 “FAR FROM CRAZY PAVEMENTS

…THE TASTE OF SILVER SPOONS

A CLINICAL ARRANGEMENT

…ON A DIRTY AFTERNOON

WHERE THE FECAL GERMS OF MR. FREUD

…ARE RENDERED OBSOLETE

THE LEGAL TERM IS NULL AND VOID

IN THE CASE OF… BEASLEY STREET”

Jock Scot- Farwell to Ferodo

 

I am a mod, 
I’ll always been a mod 
My father was a mod before me.
My coat’s a Crombie, my shirt a Ben Sherman,
The boots on my feet were made by a German.
Outside the window stands my broken Lambretta
I’m gonna fix her when the weather gets better.

Jock Scot

Patrik Fitzgerald

I’m like an island,
I’m like a lost soul;
Cut off from the rest of the world.
Walking the same corridors,
Stalking the same cold shining floors;
In search of the place i will stay.
I’m like an island,
I’m like a lost soul;
Cut off from the rest of the world…..
Island of lost souls.
Island of lost souls.
Island of lost souls.
Island of lost souls.
Placed on the same staircases,
Faced with the same choice of steps
And paces;
In search of the place i will stay;
Island of lost souls.
Island of lost souls.
Island of lost souls.
Island of lost souls.
Island of lost souls.
Island of lost souls.
Island of lost souls.
Island of lost souls.

Doug Aitken

LA artist Doug Aitken and his artwork “Text Sculpture” series, uses lightboxes, mirror works, living plants and photography to create a mesh of words and images.

“One of the things I believe in is friction, and how to generate friction within an artwork. Often these juxtapositions are where my interest lies; it’s where the energy is.” Doug Aitken

Alicia Eggert

Her artwork focuses on the relationship between language, image and time.

‘Earthship’ is a printed box with silkscreen poem texts stapled together in box which can be taken out. Various different versions of the poem can be made depending on the arrangement of the organic curved shapes.

Richard Long

In the nature of things:
Art about mobility, lightness and freedom.
Simple creative acts of walking and marking
about place, locality, time, distance and measurement.
Works using raw materials and my human scale
in the reality of landscapes.

The music of stones, paths of shared footmarks,
sleeping by the river’s roar
