Adopted by Professor Gunther Von Durkistan at the tender age of seventy-seven, Angelina Schweinskopf was unaware that her adoptive father would use her as an experimental laboratory in which to test his theories about evolution. He injected Angelina with rat's DNA over the course of fourteen years, and wired up her brain so that her dreams would crystallise into architectural visions. Von Durkistan then used his army of rats to build these plans. USEFLESS is a site-specific installation prized from the warped imaginations of Valentin Manz, Emma Tornero and Chin Keeler, in which childhood innocence is fused with maudlin, macabre mythology. Both horrific and humorous, USEFLESS ! Peepholes reveal a number of secret chambers containing Angelina Schweinskopf's past life regressions. Recycled trash such as electrical wiring and severed dolls limbs; Ultrasonic alien space helmets plus spiritual icons captured in open-heart surgery; The tangled colons of robots without homes; Baby rats singing hip hop classics and Elvis songs; Mermaids burnt to a crisp by Poseidon after eloping with pearls stolen from his underwater lair; USEFLESS !

WEDNESDAY 19 NOVEMBER 08 >> performance in the basement AMELIA by Natalie Irene Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, there dwelt a prosperous Kingdom and in this kingdom there was a king. The king had a daughter by the name of Amelia. All was happy and pleasant in the kingdom far far away until one day Amelia heard a song from the rose garden. A story of struggling against all odds and battling the demons within, this original fairytale draws on the oldest means of storytelling to explore the timeless questions of self and the world around us. MY LAST RESORT by Kumar Muniandy Ganesh, a young Indian guy meets a beautiful, mature man and finally he has found his first love, someone who actually loves him for who he is. He never felt loved before. At last, he's having the time of his life! Nine months later.......the man leaves him. This is a story about first love and the nature of love, how love is given and received and often left unrequited. It is also a bittersweet message about the different kinds of desire in the Eastern and Western worlds. When two clashing cultures come face to face with their opposing perceptions of love, can love itself really be the same, all the time? It seems only one thing can be agreed on: generation by generation, love is brought down, put to the test and left out in the cold. What do you do when you first love leaves you? How do you fight for it back? 081119.FLIER-copydone3.gif SONIC BUTCHERY BBBLOOD MUTANT APE LEGLESS 9-10PM

WEDNESDAY 26 NOVEMBER 08 new art on the bar wall Developing Dreams in Mo.tion 081127.lightboy_web.jpg A new photography exhibition Mo'tion, which uses doors, window frames and other reclaimed wood, will open at The Foundry in Old Street during National Tree Week on 26th November. The photographers Kati and Ian Byrne of Developing Dreams show impressions of life in countries such as Cuba, China, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, Australia and France. Ian Byrne, the founder of Developing Dreams, said: "The theme of Mo'tion is two-fold. It is about people and objects in motion as well as the photographers being in motion through their travels. These are like a collision of cultures and moments. The traveller becomes stationary and it is the world around him that moves. Instead of travelling around the world the world travels around the photographer and it is these moments you capture and show." As part of Mo'tion, The Foundry will show short films by independent film maker Matthew Schroeder and artist Natalia Szostak including the award-winning music video "Window" featuring up and coming Polish artist Bajzel. Mo'tion is on at The Foundry from 26th November until 7th December 2008. The launch event will be on Wednesday 26th November. For more information about Mo.tion contact Kati Byrne on 07984 185838 For more information about Matthew Schroeder's work go to For Natalia Szostak's work visit
