Constant Sleepless Night.

15- 17 May 7-11pm

15 May 7-11pm Special NQ After Dark Live Launch with sound and performance.

An evening exhibition and live soundtrack by artists Rosanne Robertson and Debbie Sharp for Manchester After Hours/Northern Quarter After Dark- as part of Museums at Night: Culture24’s annual after-hours festival of arts, culture and heritage when hundreds of museums, galleries, libraries, archives and heritage sites open their doors for special evening events.

As the night rolls on Manchester After Hours becomes Northern Quarter After Dark. NQ After Dark is the city’s most creative quarter’s offering- in the form of a night time cultural mash-up. See the Creative Tourist full guide here http://www.creativetourist.com/articles/festivals-and-events/manchester/manchester-after-hours-full-event-listings/ 

Constant Sleepless Night opens on Thursday 15th May- the start of the festival- with a special live launch event including live sound making and performance as one of the many parts of this exploratory and responsive night time exhibition.

Please note sunset on 15 May is around 8.40pm. 

An exhibition in and of the dark. 

A glimpse. 

A curious sound. 

A smell. 

A shadow. 

This two person show by artists- and directors of The Penthouse - Rosanne Robertson and Debbie Sharp takes hold of all the senses harnessing the heightened awareness of maneuvering darkness. Taking the unique situation of this top floor city centre studio and project space Robertson and Sharp will use the city at night to site responsively influence works using image, light and sound. As the night wares on the city changes and so the unique rooftop view changes and so the exhibition changes. 



Artists: 

Debbie Sharp is an artist working with installation, image, text and live performance. 

"Static Memory II, shows the artist partly surrounded by a wire mesh structure, sitting at a dimly lit desk and intoning a repetitive text that, combined with radio static and electronic effects, forms claustrophobic layers. Metal plaque making crops up in Sharp’s work over the years; she records and loops the sounds of tools on metal as she beats out the words she’s reciting. In the further enclosed space of the corridor, the effect is both intimate and sinister."- The Wire

www.debbie-sharp.com 

Rosanne Robertson is an artist working with action, objects and sound with both live and installed works. 

"For me Rosanne’s very much a ‘doodlebug’, that is to say, a provocateur who tirelessly works across all platforms, creating work by any medium necessary and who works beneath the skin," Doodlebug, Dazed and Confused.

www.rosannerobertson.com 


The Penthouse: 

An artist led work and project space with “an emphasis on the divergent” (The Skinny). Home to artists Rosanne Robertson, Debbie Sharp, many of their collaborators and Noise Above Noise- a sound art event which “elevates Manchester’s sonic underground to the fifth floor of a tower block” (The Wire). 


Suitable for any age. Families welcome. 

Admission: Suggested Donation £3

Access: 3 steps on ground floor of building, lift access, wheelchair access, wheelchair accessible bathroom.

SKIN
The Penthouse
1- 2 May 2014

Thursday 1st May
The opening night will start at 6pm with drinks.
Followed by music from 9-10pm.

Friday 2nd May
Exhibition open 11am- 6pm.
Artist talk by members of SKIN collective at 6.30pm (doors open from 6pm).


Identity, Sexuality & Sensory Experience

SKIN is the first exhibition curated by a newly founded collective comprising of four third year filmmaking students from the Manchester School of Art. As well as exhibiting their own work, they are passionate about showcasing the creative talents and artistic pursuits of their fellow peers. They feel that it is of the upmost importance to be able to provide platforms for emerging artists to express themselves, and to create new stimulating creative communities.
Their upcoming exhibition will include work that opens up new discourses around the theme and title of the exhibition - SKIN. The work which will be showcased redefines notions of identity and sexuality, and examines our sensory experiences of the exterior world. The exhibition will be thought provoking and challenge the perceptions we have of ourselves, probing us to reconceive our experiences of the world around us. The members of the collective will be doing an artist talk on the closing night of the exhibition to further convey the themes within the work and their intentions as a collective.

The collective

Celia Wickham is a documentary and artist filmmaker based in Manchester. Working primarily with archival materials, her work explores the themes of memory, familial relationships, identity and mental illness. She is very interested in exploring the re-contextualisation of autobiographical materials, such as the family photograph and the home movie, through the filmic medium, and addresses personal narratives within her practice. You can find her work at: http://www.cargocollective.com/celiawickham  &  https://vimeo.com/celiawickham

Laura Milner, working under the pseudonym of ‘Starbelly’, is an experimental filmmaker and creative who works within the ‘portrait’ documentary strand of film practice. Her main focus is capturing realistic portrayals of intriguing subjects as well as exploring themes of identity. Alongside her documentary work, Laura enjoys experimenting with music and rhythm, creating chaotic audio-visuals with undertones of surrealism. You can find her work at: http://lauramilner.wix.com/starbelly &  www.vimeo.com/lauramilner

Ella Deacy is an experimental artist and filmmaker whose work explores texture, sound and colour. Her work’s themes include the human condition, sexuality and the fetishising of the body. Light and water often feature in her pieces, which delve into ideas of birth. Ella is interested in physically creating visual, and sonic layers and textures in her films. She creates soundscapes using tactile objects to add different facets and guide audiences in unexpected directions. You can find her work at: www.cargocollective.com/elladeacy  &  www.vimeo.com/elladeacy

Abi McVeigh is a filmmaker and visual artist whose work focuses around light and colour. As a director of photography she likes to exercise the use of light, the colour of light in particular. Her interest in light art has also enabled her to incorporate the use of space in her work. Alongside this, her craft encompasses the use of distorted sound design in order to initiate uncomfortable reactions within an audience.
 Mental illness is the theme of work that Abigail is exploring at the moment, and she has created a link between sound and visuals aided by her recent research into colour psychology. You can find her work at: www.cargocollective.com/abigailmcveigh & www.thursdaynightfridaymorning.tumblr.com
