Corpsing at Curatorspace


Corpsing is curated by Lisa Penny and John Tiney, with works by themselves, Mari Reijnders, Giles Perry, John Summers, Angus Wyatt and Rachel Tweddell (above). I drop in here, see lots of people, take lots of photos. I also meet Hilary Jack and Paul Harfleet. We have communicated by email before but never actually spoken. They run the Apartment in Manchester. Hilary has been doing two projects I really like: Turquoise Bag in a Tree and Make Do and Mend. And Paul has been doing a beautiful, sad, eloquent, moving and subtle work, planting pansies as delicate memorials in places where he has received homophobic abuse. I think this is just brilliant. Read about it here.
More talking and more photos. I decide tonight to make sure I get at least one shot of all the artists showing. I do it, just, ending up running down the street to catch up with Giles Perry when I suddenly realise he's no longer at the view.
It's a nice show, the space is good, it's busy. People I meet give me things: cards, flyers, handouts. Mari gives me his latest Trophy Picture postcard: Hitler in my Cappuccino - which is worth it just for the title alone.
