Crazy golf fans ‘Share The Love’ at a Valentine’s Day celebration raising money for Love Specs, aka Love Support Unite, a charity sustainably supporting communities in Malawi. All ticket revenue taken at Junkyard’s Brick Lane, London venue will be donated to the charity.

In 2016 Junkyard Golf Club raised £13,000 for their partner charity, Love Support Unite, and in 2017 Junkyard is aiming even higher. The first of these feel-good fundraisers arrives in the form of ‘Share The Love’, a Valentine’s Day celebration open to all, couples, singles, friends and more. As per usual lip-smacking cocktails, danceable tunes and of course a whole host of crazy golf courses to master will be on offer – alongside the chance to make a huge difference to communities in Malawi. On a day stereotypically associated with chocolates, fancy restaurants, diamonds and more material spending, ‘Share The Love’ is a chance to do something different.

This is a true story. Events are told exactly as they happened, apart from the ones that are completely made up.

It’s 1943. Rosa Rauchbach and Horace Greasley are creating a little slice of history, and stealing a lot of chickens along the way.

The Rauchbach Greasley Association Society Club (RGASC, for short) will tell you all about it. They have a shared obsession with their two national heroes, a fierce pride in their country and only 5 members. Not that that’s going to stop them.

Multi award-winning Lost Watch present Flew the Coop, inspired by the true story of Silesian translator Rosa Rauchbach and Horace Greasley, the British prisoner of war who escaped over 200 times to see her.

January 20th 2017 is the day that President-elect Trump takes office. Unbeknownst to many, January 20th also happens to be the day Ice Cube rapped about in his seminal song It Was A Good Day.

A group of artists are celebrating Ice Cube and his positive song with an exhibition dedicated to It Was A Good Day.

It Was A Good Day by Ice Cube was released in 1992, and using the song’s lyrics and historic events—like the debut date of Yo! MTV Raps and results of games between the Lakers and Sonics—Donovan Strain from Murk Avenue concluded that Ice Cube’s “good day” was Jan. 20, 1992.

teamLab: Transcending Boundaries @ Pace Gallery / until 11th March 2017

TIME AND PLACE:

Doors: Tues-Sat 11-4

@ PACE London, 6 Burlington Gardens, London W1S 3ET

Free entry, booking essential!

www.pacelondon.team-lab.net

Exploring the role of digital technology in transcending the physical and conceptual boundaries that exist between different artworks, with imagery from one work breaking free of the frame and entering the space of another.

The installations also dissolve distinctions between artwork and exhibition space, and involve the viewer through interactivity.

The largest room in the exhibition will include six works and feature Universe of Water Particles, Transcending Boundaries (2017), a virtual waterfall that extends beyond the gallery wall onto the floor, flowing through the exhibition space and around the feet of the viewer. It engages with the concept of Ultra Subjective Space, central to teamLab’s practice, referencing the non-perspectival depiction of space in premodern Japanese art and situating the viewer directly within the realm of the artwork.

Encompassing the second room, Dark Waves (2016) is a simulation of the movement of waves based on the behaviour of hundreds of thousands of water particles. The waves are created in a three-dimensional virtual space, expressing water as a living entity that immerses the viewer and suggests an intrinsic connection with nature.

In the last room, the darkened space is transformed by the presence of the viewer, which activates Flowers Bloom on People (2017). With the body as a canvas for the projections, flowers are in a process of continuous change—growing, decaying and scattering in direct response to the viewer’s movements.

For New York-based artist Amie Siegel’s first solo show in London, the South London Gallery presents recent works which explore the mechanisms through which objects become imbued with meaning. Known for her layered, meticulously constructed works that consider the undercurrents of value systems, cultural ownership and image-making, Siegel works across film, video, photography, performance and installation.

Quarry, 2015, projected at cinematic scale in the SLG’s main gallery, traces the excavation of marble from the deepest underground quarry in the world to its almost inevitable use in the modern luxury apartments of Manhattan skyscrapers. Beautiful, formally rigorous, and pointedly underscored by dramatic orchestral sound, this moving image work draws us into a mesmerising exposé of the multi-layered relationships between art, labour and value.

Fetish, 2016, presented in the first floor galleries, delves further into the stratified relationships between culture, value, and material by focusing on Sigmund Freud’s personal collection of archaeological statues and artefacts. Filmed at the Freud Museum in north London, it portrays the annual nocturnal cleaning of the psychoanalyst’s collection, suggesting an analogy between the careful, almost ritualistic removal of layers of dust from the objects and the intimate excavations and disclosures of analysis, both of which are normally hidden from view.

Proposing a conceptual link between Fetish and Quarry, Siegel presents a new work in the second upstairs gallery – a fragment of pink marble from the lobby of New York City’s Trump Tower. Offered for sale on eBay immediately following the 2016 US election, the marble fragment was purchased by the artist. The fragment’s transformations, from having had a clear use within a building into an apparently functionless piece of rock, and then into a historic relic, are both continued and emphasised through its incorporation into Siegel’s work. Parallel narratives are therefore set in motion, both with the material concerns of Quarry, and the potentially infinite circular conversations around the themes of objecthood and desire explored within Fetish.
