DUKE GARWOOD

DUKE GARWOOD

DUKE GARWOOD

SOLD OUT

This December we are very excited to be welcoming London based mulit-instrumentalist Duke Garwood to Haydon church for an intimate and atmospherc evening of dirty British blues.  

“Duke Garwood is one of my all time favorite artists. Working with him has been one of the best experiences of my recording life.” Mark Lanegan 

With a soulful, stripped-bare sound, Duke Garwood explores his auteurist, cinematic vision. His dark and erotic sound brings together elements of the mad blues, unhurried grooves and desert slithers that he has become known for.

Garwood has formed connections with many great musicians, from Mark Lanegan, Seasick Steve and Josh T. Pearson to Tinariwen and The Master Musicians Of Jajouka.

Savages singer Jehnny Beth has also been a long-term admirer and it’s her delicate vocals that appear on Heavy Love’s haunting title-track.

Whether you know Dukes' music or not, this is one not to be missed. 

Drinks and food available of an interesting Ilk.

THE DIAMOND FAMILY ARCHIVE

TDFA SET UP.jpg

The Diamond Family Archive is a unique roving ensemble based around the guitar playing and song writing of Laurence Collyer. Holed up in a converted shed in rural Devon, the DFA create and coax songs from all manner of instruments and vintage equipment. Personal and pastoral themes are mixed to create sparse and fluttering arrangements. The sounds of the rain, the old mill leat outside the door and the ever present ominous rookery in the nearby slate quarry all find their way onto recordings.

The Diamond Family Archive create a mesmeric live experience with a melding of acoustic guitars, FX pedals, drums, tape delay, loops, belows, bows, harmonicas, cosmic harps, toys, broken symbols and vocals. This layering of sound evolves into a journey, never to be retrodden.

Drinks available of an interesting Ilk.

PAUL NEWMAN with DENMAN+GOULD Artist talk

1524235715590.jpeg

Talk + Q&A 6pm-8pm SATURDAY 26TH MAY

Join us on for the opening of our exhibition for Dorset Art Weeks 2018. 

Artists Russell Denman, Eleanor Goulding and Paul Newman invite you to join them in conversation as they discuss their relationship to their practice and their collaborative exhibition for Dorset Art Weeks. 

Artist Eleanor Goulding explores the space inside the church to house site specific video installation and illuminated work which looks to challenge perception of place. Russell Denman is a sculptor and cabinet maker, his new work looks at industrial form through a medium reminiscent of architectural model making. Paul Newman is a graphic fine artist, curator and member of The Arborealists, working exclusively in graphite. Extensive walking, close observation and research about land and ‘place’ are integral to his practice.

We'd like to extend a warm welcome to our studio for this talk and throughout our exhibition for Dorset Art Weeks.

Open 25th May - 10th June.

RORY MACLEAN

Rory+MacLean.jpg

We look forward to welcoming our most loved travel writer Rory MacLean to Other Side for an evening of stories that capture the spirit and character of place and its people. 

"Why are we drawn to certain cities?" asks Rory MacLean in the prologue to his brilliant new history of Berlin. I myself came here on a whim. Following a weekend visit some years ago, I made the spontaneous decision on the train journey home to move my life here; this often ungainly yet seductive city has an urgency about it that today entices and inspires so much creativity.

And yet, for a city that feels to be ever evolving and buzzing with the zeitgeist of our modern generation, this is also a city where history is inescapable. It assaults you as you walk Berlin's streets. Never before have I known a city where the layers of history are so present – even in their absence – and often so palpably recent. MacLean brings these monumental and clashing historical layers vividly to life in Berlin: Imagine a City. "No other city has repeatedly been so powerful, and fallen so low," he writes. "No other capital has been so hated, so feared, so loved. No other place has been so twisted and torn across five centuries of conflict, from religious wars to cold war, at the hub of Europe's ideological struggle." The Guardian

Rory is joining us to talk about talk about travel writing and his UK top tens “Stalin’s Nose” and “Under the Dragon” as well as “Berlin: Imagine a City”, a Washington Post Book of the Year.

BEN RIVERS plus Q&A

Ben+Rivers+Flyer.jpeg

“Anyone who has ever dreamed about running away to the wilderness will feel a pang watching Ben Rivers's quietly elegiac films.” The Guardian 

We feel very privileged to be welcoming Artist and Experimental Film maker, Ben Rivers to OTHER SIDE.

Ben Rivers is an artist and experimental filmmaker based in London. His work has been shown in many film festivals and galleries around the world and has won numerous awards. 

Ben Rivers studied Fine Art at Falmouth School of Art, initially in sculpture before moving into photography and super8 film. After his degree he taught himself 16mm filmmaking and hand-processing. His practice as a filmmaker treads a line between documentary and fiction.

Often following and filming people who have in some way separated themselves from society, the raw film footage provides Rivers with a starting point for creating oblique narratives imagining alternative existences in marginal worlds.

Ben’s films are rich, cinematic portraits that explore wilderness environments and self-contained worlds, representing memory through visual fragments. Primarily shot on 16mm black and white film, sometimes on out-of-date stock, Rivers' work has the appearance of ageing, archival footage. The artist shoots on an old Bolex wind-up camera, and works creatively within its limitations – including constraints of duration, since its the longest continuous shot is 30 seconds. The aged appearance of the film is also partly a consequence of Rivers hand-processing each film in his own kitchen sink. He compares the creation of his films to assembling a collage, and although he places great emphasis on the editing process, he is in fact strongly involved in all stage of his films' creation, through his roles as cameraman, developer, editor and director. The distanced quality of Rivers work – albeit a knowing construction – extends to the spaces and subjects that the films focus on.
