The former Abbeyhill Station

Shadowed Spaces Edinburgh

Ikuro Takahashi Sean Meehan Tamio Shiraishi Denis Wood

The site of the former Abbeyhill Station on the 1903 Leith branch of the Edinburgh and Dalkeith railway, overgrown and leading to as yet un-regenerated ‘wasteland’; taxi’s for 80 people, each instructed to take different routes between locations and; a slice of land concealed behind corporate business park branding off the Wester Approach Rd, apparently of no conceivable use and named ‘Chateaux de Scum’ by those who use it anyway.

Shadowed Spaces Newcastle

Ikuro Takahashi Sean Meehan Tamio Shiraishi Denis Wood

A concrete walkway ending in mid air, a ridiculously tight squeeze between three office buildings and various other sites of Labour politician and council leader T. Dan Smith’s modernist regeneration projects and ‘slum clearances’ of the 1950’s and 60’s.

Shadowed Spaces Easterhouse

Ikuro Takahashi Sean Meehan Tamio Shiraishi Denis Wood

Location: Around and about the old public library in Easterhouse; disinvested in and left to rot by the council but which was shamelessly, hastily and superficially cleaned by them in expectation of our event.

North West from Chester Hill, Composition – 10 (1960)

Lee Patterson Luke Fowler

A delicate and detailed walk through the urban and rural landscape around Dundee; a poetic focus on the details found. A performance for 16mm projection and live amplified objects (maybe pine cones, maybe a coke bottle).

Tetsuo Kogawa

Performing with hand built radio transmitters, which react to interference in the atmosphere and the electrical impedance of his hands, his radio art is a form of social practice; a statement in opposition to mass media.
