I couldn’t care to imagine how many of them arrived. How many do you imagine will exist when the take-down is imminent?

There of course could, and probably will be, more. But, somehow I find it impossible to imagine the show any differently from how it was when we saw it that first Saturday in June. The works and their positions are ingrained in my memory as a polished background image to our conversation in the gallery. This ‘finish’ makes me think about the general practice of going to see a show - the event / time-based questions that come up in conversation, such as ‘did you see the bit when / with ...?’ - I think most of us will go and see a show only once, just like we might do a round-the-world trip once in our lifetime, travelling through most countries we have selected only once. The repeat visit is reserved for the countries/shows we really have an affinity with, the ones we maybe locate a bit of ourselves in.

 

-- so the process of addition in “Free Show” interests me, do you think it seeks a before and after viewing?

 

..Imagining what the show might look like just before take-down is, for me, a bit like imagining what someone I remember, but met only once about ten years ago, might look like now..

Imagine she has been away.

 

When she returned there was an accumulative heaviness. Weather forecasters would cite the language of snow. Upon returning - and entering a place snowed in, covered, concealed and worked  - I am aware that the ‘before’ and ‘after’ one of us speaks of is imbued with a kind of dissolution in between. The echoiness of a shy voice amid an assembly hall at school falls upon ears only just as tepid. And what of the louder, brasher children? Who are their friends to be?

To: miriam craik-horan <akushlabill@hotmail.com>

One on top of the other: in this case a gesture so polite as to be as logical as: one after another.

 

The brash attention-seeker usually thinks of themself as a comedian, playing on and against a very human resounding board. It’s the steam of one man pushing everyman too far. The logic of their humour is combustion through assimilation, and heirs and graces form part of their spell around the cauldron. What do you think will happen to the relationship of part to whole when work is taken down, one after another? what of the authors who are witnessed removing, and the traces that they leave?

In the hall, with drink. A pear cider in, because its out here not in five years.

 

But in five years, I imagine, coming in from out here and seeing the stench of fresh -not altruistic fruits- labours, not alcholic. In hand is a cup for milling the ceremonial space. Take to mouth, privately, in public view. Putting one hand on top of the other (one is yours), around the cup and outside it space falls.

 

On the floor, in five years, large sticky letters from a slip of mouth. A large letter, probably a consonant, takes with it confectionary wallpaper and breaks authorship bread with a curl in its thin lips. They were not to be touched, but made to be. And so the joke goes, and falls on hobbyhorse ears as she rocks. Everywhere she rocks the same ballad, then still under an arm above a pair of legs in blue jeans.

 

Pear cider, and only a bottle of it. Small part of a whole tree, but more than a whole pear, a part. So, washing my five years cup hand in Pears soap (plural pear, no part fruit) the logic of the relationship of part to whole is disgraced by the nature of my cup. When we talked in the space, rotating like a mill, we contained and defined the fragility of that relationship between the parts. When hands enter back into five years to reclaim and undo, objects start to open into cups when the objects are made impartial to human evaluation. Nice jeans.

* I imagine that, as a viewer, sharing sight of the take-down process may be a particularly self-conscious, and perhaps embarrassing, moment. The intentions and the bodies of the viewer and the artist occupy five years simultaneously, misaligned.

 

Regular exhibition procedures cultivate the upright, polite and expectant viewer-body, and take-down is usually conducted in the privacy of the closed gallery, by the artist or gallerist, dutifully. The first act self-consciously politicises the gaze with respectful distance, whereas the second act mirrors the viewer-body’s perfunctory parade out of the door, at close of play.

 

At the point the artist is witnessed in the process of removal, the window is conveniently placed for a sideways gaze. View to an outside or an awareness of an inside, with or without air, it is a reliable dynamic.

I would like you to send the FREE SHOW Call for work PDF out as soon as possible. I’ve attached it just in case

Thanks

Hi Eddy,

I think normally it would be fine, but the nature of the two shows could
create confusion. Vanessa thought it seems as if the artist in my show have
responded to yours. I think she may be right. Even if they are sent in two
separate emails, I think it would make the message of both clearer.

The only issue is that we try and keep mailouts as regular as
possible... every three weeks, and bundle additional info in...

Check with Marc, but personally I need to give some time for people to
consider a response... and I’m not able to advertise this time

Dear Edward,
Thank you very much for your invite.
I’ll pass it on to some friends in London.

At the moment, I am in Zurich and I think it would be too expensive if I’d
fly in and install the work in your gallery.

But maybe we could do something in the future! I studies with Michelle
Deignan at Goldsmiths College, so she knows me.

On my website, you can find a number of works. Currently I am working on a
new series with plants which is not online yet.

It would be nice if we could stay in touch!

All the best,
Miriam

Well. Send over instructions on how to show. Or give consent to the work being shown however others see fit. Send the postage with the work rather than money. I’m not based at the gallery so I’d rather avoid going backwards and forwards to the post office to pick up unpicked up mail. Maybe you could think of something other than what you usually do?

hello Edward

yes, i would be interested in participating in this show

i am, however, involved in a project which would mean that i could not install my work during the period 4th to the 6th of June

can i submit work to the show, once it has opened - i would most likely want to make the piece (text based) in the gallery

or

if this is not possible, could i nominate someone to instal a blank board in the space during the three day period - on which i would then work, once the show was open ?

Dearest Edward Dorrian,
I am just about to finish my sculpture degree at Camberwell and would be heavily interested in exhibiting in your gallery. We were sent a random e-mail thing via Camberwell that said you were looking for people.  
 
My work is an uncanny mix of random junk shop and found objects all pieced together to make curious and bizarre assemblages displayed, usually on nasty furniture. Think Keinholz cross with Upritchard.
Please see images enclosed if it works. Some of it is actually quite good.

Dear Mr Dorrian,
 
 
I am writing to you in response to an e-mail I have received regarding an opportunity to participate in a show being held at Five Years gallery. I am extremely eager to take part in what sounds like an exciting opportunity for an artist in my position.
 
I am a London based artist who is just about take part in my graduate degree show within the next week. An opportunity such as the one your gallery is offering seems like the perfect chance for me to get my work seen by a wider audience.
 
If it would be possible for you to send me some more information about this, or alternatively, tell me what information you require from me it would be great.
 
Also, I have attached a few photographs of my work for you to look at.
 
Look forward to hearing from you soon,

Hi Edward

Meant to respond to it earlier.  Would love to participate.  Am at the Basel Art Fair until the lat day of set up, so would love to come then and make an intervention at the show, maybe even a participatory event at the opening.  I’m thinking sugar graffiti.  Can’t be much more specific at the mo, but the attachment will give you some ideas.  There are some images on the website of sugar graffiti projects in Berlin and Amsterdam.

Back next week from Italy, so hopefully speak then.  Have passed on the invitation to a couple of people as well.

Best,

Shane

Hello Edward,
I’m a first year sculpture student at Camberwell and am interested in showing my work at the free for all exhibition. It is a fairly large piece (about 1.5m across and same in height)- is there likely to be enough space for it? If so, would it be a case of getting my man with a van to drive it over on the 4th June? I’m a bit confused.
Thanks for help,

Hello Edward,
I am interested in the idea. Are you curating this through an open submission policy or something else. Does the show change/evolve, or does it operate conventionally.
I have attached 2 images; one of a small sculpture, the other being a installation that can work as a room or as a piece that takes up a wall. The image of the room sized version exists as a 1:10 scale model in my studio.

Please do contribute. Bare in mind the size of the space and the possible overwhelming response to a show without theme or selection. We have been insisting that people are responsible for installing their own work. This will be the issue of this show. How do you negotiate your work with others? If you can’t come over in person then it may be possible to place your work to your ideal specification, but allow its final placing to be determined by others. I have no intention of dictating terms other than the outlining instructions given to everyone. Its up to you if you wish to participate

The best thing to do is come and see the space while the current show is on. I don’t need to see what you want do. But it might also be helpful to think about how your work may affect and be affected by what others do. Your the first person to actually ask for measurements... Here they are approximately

If by curate you mean select... then no, I’m not curating. The show is open to anyone… regardless… As you know the gallery space is limited! This is part of the show. How you negotiate with others in person…this too is part of the show. The show can change/evolve through these negotiations. If these are conventions that you can work with then the show will operate conventionally for you.

I have attached 2 images; one of a small sculpture, the other being a installation that can work as a room or as a piece that takes up a wall. The image of the room sized version exists as a 1:10 scale model in my studio.

Regards, Piers.

Please do contribute. Bare in mind the size of the space and the possible overwhelming response to a show without theme or selection. We have been insisting that people are responsible for installing their own work. This will be the issue of this show. How do you negotiate your work with others? If you can’t come over in person then it may be possible to place your work to your ideal specification, but allow its final placing to be determined by others. I have no intention of dictating terms other than the outlining instructions given to everyone. Its up to you if you wish to participate

The best thing to do is come and see the space while the current show is on. I don’t need to see what you want do. But it might also be helpful to think about how your work may affect and be affected by what others do. You’re the first person to actually ask for measurements... Here they are approximately

in feet: W-10 L-15 H-9 approx.

If by curate you mean select... then no, I’m not curating. The show is open to anyone… regardless… As you know the gallery space is limited! This is part of the show. How you negotiate with others in person…this too is part of the show. The show can change/evolve through these negotiations. If these are conventions that you can work with then the show will operate conventionally for you.

The curatorial concept is very much stated within the terms and condition of the show. Context of the submitted is determined by participation. The question of how that participation is tempered will have to be defined by those submitting work.. Visit the space while the current show is on.

Hallo Edward


Know i understand what you ment that you`d be curious to see the reaction
Absolut fantastic titel specially for german artists!!!!!
If you know berlin scene you can`t imagine the strong building and wish to belong to a group here. I think its very funny.
People excluding oneanother activlly from shows just because they want to do shows with mainly similar work instaed of contraversial and individuallistic!! ideas.
It must be a particullar german pattern.
I think its fantastic to have the titel in german language.
have a graet painting and will forward it to too other artists.
Best wishes and thank you for taking me in.

On sober reflection... would it be possible to coincide what you were proposing with the last day of Free Show? We haven't heard back from Alex yet , but Marc was thinking that we might need that weekend to set up the next show after all. What do you think?

Georgie

Thanks for the information
I'm not sure if you got the email I sent you so I'll reiterate...

Marc, on further reflection would like the weekend we suggested you could have to set up the next show. What I would like... if you could agree... would be to hold your event on the last day of FREE SHOW. 22/06/08. It would be your appropriation of the gallery and could be seen as a collaboration of sorts... where you make use of the gallery rather than merely having us host.... Something mutually beneficial. Personally I think it could work consistently with the ideas you are proposing… a kind of direct intervention. The show on that day will be disassembled and I was going to have the bar open anyway… could be fun?

Hope you can agree…

Hello Edward

I hope that the show is going well.  I will be away most of next weekend unfortunately, as I'd hoped to come and mess with my work some.  Here's hoping someone else does instead!  It was good to meet you.  I would be glad to take part in future projects.   Keep in touch, best, Lulu x

Dear Edward,

Do you still have space at the gallery?  My band/collective Keshco would like to do a mini-retrospective featuring various drawings (album covers, flyers etc), also we have little miniature sets/characters from animations and possibly some audio works to exhibit using Walkmans.  We've got lots of video clips which we could put onto a DVD loop, if the players are still free?

Hope to hear from you soon,

Andy

It all became too much in the sense that I realized that it would not be feasible. I had my year-end assessment last night and our year-end exhibition will be on Friday (for the public). I was really disappointed that it all happened all at once because I really wanted to participate. I heard that it is a really great space.
Is this something that takes place frequently? Hope to hear from you so that I can participate next time around. Please reply.

Fair enough... but this show is not being ring-mastered... at least it shouldn't... the point is and I''ll repeat this... find your own way of working with others... directly. You seem to want to be allowed to show. The terms of the show state simply that all work will be presented. No one can change or remove your work without your consent. You are responsible for your work. Not me. In fact on those occasions where people have been in the space together, they seem to respond to each others work... and you'll like this word... positively

Dear Edward,
I think it does matter because if your enthused it enthuses and inspires people around you. But your also right that it shouldn't matter but it certainly helps.
If there is still space and your open today I can drop some stuff off- my only problem was transport as it's all really fragile and most of it quite massive so I was limited on what I could bring, boring boring but if your still up for it I can install something special.

I am n the process of moving, so evrything a bit up in the air.
But one option, if you'd like, I could turn up with three papers,
and paint/brushes whatnot and make three on site?
It's simply a question of when.
Perhaps this weekend.
What's yr mobile number?
cheers

Mmmnn… The tone seems a little too barbed… sorry about that…
From what you've been emailing recently you seem like someone eager to press your work into a wider public sphere… as a matter of direct address. Your idea of presenting the blank sign to be worked and developed once the show was open seemed consistent with the terms of our show… consistent with an idea of working in a space shared by others. It's not about liking or disliking what you send… its just that you would have the opportunity here, to present in person... in your own terms... freely.
Maybe not.

Dear Edward

Is that "M" in a James Bond sense?  
Or in a "I don't really want to commit myself" sense?  

I hope it's the one who works for the secret services.  Will try to get up this week - or is there only weekend accessibility? 

Best, Lulu

Hi Edward,

I hope you're well.

Miriam and I (came in on the first Saturday for an hour or two!) are working on a collaborative piece of text to be timed with the 'take-down'. I think your observation that our conversation might have been a part of the work was, in retrospect, true -- and I like that some of that was caught on tape and that some fell into the technological 'gap'!

Looking forward to seeing how the show has developed.
All best,
Claire

Dear Edward,
Hope all is well.I went on the Five Years Blog to see if there were any
photos of the show, because I was curoius about its outcome.
How many people have submitted work so far?I tried to make it back on Friday,
but would've missed my flight back home.
I spoke with Cesare Belloni about doing something(an exchange,whatever)with
Five Years artists and he was very enthusiastic!There is a web site for the
Castello somewhere-I'll send you the link when I find out what it is exactly.

10.09.08.........Umm… uh… (pause) (laughs) (laughter)

The idea of a Free Show… umm… was simple. Simple enough. The instructions explain what needs to be understood. Practically. Participation is free. Free to all. Regardless. There are of course rules. But. And crucially here, the gesture is towards consent. Perhaps this won’t work. Allowing others what amounts to clause protection. Ourselves and our work. From what? From certain discussion made between participants. Predictably the show becomes an opportunity to show work without censure… arbitration… that is without someone saying the work is not good enough. This is never said by the artists… Bringing work for show. Indeterminate. Sentence. The length of which depends on the prisoners conduct. Uncertain and also contingent. Possible happening by chance or unforeseen causes. Unpredictable… intended for use in circumstances not completely… foreseen. Dependent on… or conditioned by something else… not necessitated… determined by free choice… demands from each artist a certain responsibility. A relinquishing of… consent. In what sense? Do they work willingly? We work willingly… are happy enough to respond within the rules. We are never asked to provide good work. Chance. Relies on trust… a trust in the overall… construction… system… proves problematic… To have a system, this is fatal for the mind writes Schlegel, Not to have one, this too is fatal. Whence the necessity to observe, while abandoning, the two requirements at once. No one says a bad word to the face. And what isn’t working well… what skips along… content with… blustering embarrassment… in mediocrity… sits awkwardly akin… paradoxically… to the way we strive to do wrong… you know the form… the manner… those group shows… Yes, yes that really works… or… it needs to somehow look wrong… Of course there is wrong proper. It’s very difficult. And you can’t be sure… whether you have done the right thing. Yes the question is if you would like to be sure. But the show cannot be ignored. (laughter) For those who pick up and read it’s little calling card… a refusal to participate is an act of… recognition. Je est un autre… Etc. I see only from one point, but in my existence I am looked at from all sides. So things in the end may be divided. Split. Etc. Those who see the invitation. And those who don’t concern themselves… refusing… somehow… boredom… through tired abject weariness… indifference… perhaps the gallery is too… the horrible probability of showing next to… powerless to defend against… poisoned by… too much… too unprofessional… too troublesome… too inappropriate… context all wrong… properly wrong. Or others who… confessed… who came with every intention … and then left without… There can or will be no proper permission given for participation. This is all to the idea. We have to accept that free defined in this way forces us… jeopardizes personal taste. Contingency. (laughs) The point. Not everyone copes. And there were those who willingly… participated… Fought to get in early before the space was filled up. Brought whatever they could to give a bit of a show to their talents… sorry… Our… talents… Fitted into the space left by others. Saying how happy they were. No one really wanted to move anybody else’s work even though most didn’t mind their work being moved. Altering and changing other’s work seemed very much out of limits. Even for those who specified that they were happy to have their work altered. Working in the space over time… over and above the time taken to place (nail, screw, glue) for those who stayed for the day… painting, cutting out paper…  developing conversational messages… from one weekend to the other… or allowing the recording of one performance to underscore future events. Imagining the viewer. Passing by chance. In the end everyone returned to remove their work in full view. As with the above… to be recorded. We accept the fact. That promises of whole-hearted, thrilled interest will be and are reneged… And that the removal of work in person… during show time… offers one last chance to be caught… captured in the field of vision… In the sight of… if not one’s parents. Claire Nichols concludes her piece for Free Show writing to Miriam Craik-Horan:

I imagine that, as a viewer, sharing sight of the take-down process may be a particularly self-conscious, and perhaps embarrassing, moment. The intentions and the bodies of the viewer and the artist occupy five years simultaneously, misaligned.

Regular exhibition procedures cultivate the upright, polite and expectant viewer-body, and take-down is usually conducted in the privacy of the closed gallery, by the artist or gallerist, dutifully. The first act self-consciously polticises the gaze with respectful distance, whereas the second act mirrors the viewer-body’s perfunctory parade out of the door, at close of play.

At the point the artist is witnessed in the process of removal, the window is conveniently placed for a sideways gaze. View to an outside or an awareness of an inside, with or without air, it is a reliable dynamic.

You know what artists are like. Permission must to be sought. Friendship… Comradeship… Individualism. Autrui. Circumstances dictate. Sauve Qui Peut (La Vie)

Edward Dorrian
