  • Takabuti, Glenn Patterson & Mark Chambers | www.26treasures.com
    as written by Glenn are represented in the two painted panels within the wooden structure The wooden frame is not just structural the empty panels within the frame open up the space and importantly allow people experiencing the work to be viewed through the windows This is a life size embodiment of the small scale paintings of Takabuti s ancestors on the outside of her coffin As the viewer walks through the artwork the aim is to experience some form of detachment from the gallery space whether it is one of comfort or unease and reflect on the never ending quest for eternal life and the mystery surrounding it I hope that as the viewer is surrounded by the darkness and the crossover of fractured light experiencing the push and pull effect of the panels that the artwork captures the feeling of uncertainty and unknowingness as Takabuti wakes in the night and once when I woke in the night and could not sleep again for fear of the dark of all that might be lying in wait Mark Chambers is an Artist who works with a wide variety of materials processes and techniques through the disciplines of drawing painting installation and sculpture He works as a Visual Arts Lecturer at Belfast Metropolitan College Castlereagh Campus www markchambers org Glenn Patterson s Verbal Response to Takabuti and her coffin and once when I woke in the night and could not sleep again for fear of the dark of all that might be lying in wait he came and knelt by my bed and said you are the best girl in the whole world and you know that I will be there for you always always always because I am your daddy Glenn Patterson is the author of six novels Burning Your

  • Peter Meanley's Toby Jug, Richard Weston & Sonya Whitefield | www.26treasures.com
    A self portrait Are you supposed to use it You can technically It will contain It will poor It can be lifted But it s bloody big Full up I imagine it s pretty damned heavy So hold on Peter You ve made a tea pot that s so big it ll break my occasional table so heavy I m likely to put my back out carrying it and if I pour it what then I d better have a mop on hand Of course it s him as well Sonya said Sonya s the visual artist I was paired with a photographer she s brilliant Sonya said he looked a bit like me He does Older And I don t dress like that Although I might I would if I were a potter Anyway there he is sitting on a low stool cradling a little tea pot waiting for something for the tea to brew It s like he s saying Look at my dainty little tea pot It pours so nicely Sits in my hand so well Just the right shape for my hand It s modest but elegant it s a perfect pot Not like the brute I made for you Not like that beast at all I love that about this thing At first you think it s a little twee Too nice My Mum would like it But then you think about the size of it and how self indulgent it is It s decorative and it s functional But you d really struggle to use it It s like a teapot the devil would make you use if you were well you know where or else he d stick a red hot poker where the tea don t shine It s kind of subversive too Decorative and homely but so bloody big Too ungainly for your sideboard you couldn t find a cupboard to house it or a shelf big enough to stash it And it doesn t take long to find out that many of Peter s pots are him How audacious How brazen Squatting down on his little pedestal Full of tea Warming his backside and scalding his back if it weren t for his leather waistcoat Good job he put that on But of course Peter knows what he s doing He s done this many times He s the master King of the Tea Cozy on his brew filled thrown But then I imagined bringing this out for a special occasion I d do that Not say anything Not prepare anyone for what they were about to receive Fancy a cup of tea I ll use my best tea pot it s a bit special You just sit there I ll bring it through And all that is what I was thinking about when I wrote my little bit of nonsense about Peter s crazy mixed up pot The pot that sticks an impertinent finger up to the purist fussy

  • Downpatrick Hoard, Carlo Gébler & Carole Kane | www.26treasures.com
    jewellery comprising the hoard and not taking ineffectual pot shots at officialese A day or two after writing this cod index card I got up very early and left the house where I live in Fermanagh Outside it was still dark and murky and as I stumbled around the little lanes that surround us two things happened First I realised what I wanted say in a short lyric and then the words that actually expressed what I wanted to say came to me When I got home breathless and slightly sweaty I got a piece of paper and my fountain pen and I wrote down the words that had coalesced in my thoughts while I d been out an experience incidentally that I ve often had going out immediately on waking and hurrying around the lanes I have frequently had this experience of the words to say what I need to say just coming as if by magic Later I typed up the version I d written by hand then on the screen I made a few adjustments for rhythmical reasons each sentence had to have four stresses and my first draft wasn t entirely consistent Making these adjustments required me to move the odd word around but it didn t take long and then the job was done I had a lyric sixty two words in length with a consistent rhythmical structure I sent the words away to my co conspirator Carole Kane Carlo Gébler Friday 21 October 2011 Carlo Gébler s verbal response to the Downpatrick Hoard Worn by No idea Worn how No idea Worn why Ah yes Our ancient need To decorate And beautify Millennia Later these are Still glorious Of course they are In our deep core We are the same But what will we
