Got his training in the streets of his native
Copenhagen (1985- ), where the graffiti and arabic
stores' signs formed his lines, while an extended
stay in the U.S. (2001-2002) taught him to see
things in black and white. Both are lasting
influences on his works. Moreover he acknowledges
the decisive impact of Schiele, Taki 184, Diego
Rivera, Brazilian street art, and more generally the
human beings he encounters on a day to day basis.
The themes he develops generally emerge from his
fascination and interaction with the latter, namely
in relation to politics (MSc Political Sociology
from LSE 2009). Posters and murals are the favoured
media as to engage directly with the environment as
well as its inhabitants.

Fernando Matoso - BLURREAL
new art on the far wall GRAEME GERARD HALLIDAY
Graeme's work is to critically interpret the
Aesthetic constructions of society and Art.
The body is a main focal point for his work. He
believes the has become a product, self legitimacy
has been overridden, we have been conditioned to
consumerism, we have become the product.
Post-modern theorists comment on the human
condition in contemporary society, stating we live
in a world of hyper-realty, which consist of
fabricated idealisms. The body is projected as an
object of perfection, commodity subverts the status
quo thus infusing non-truths and blurred realities,
the branded body only has legitimacy when consuming
and thus being consumed. Critically comment ranging
in areas of societal construction to the show body
as a branded commodity, the body as a creation of
our contemporary society our reality is one of
decadent narcissism we are the germ that is must be
cleansed we are the dirt we are the product.
Aesthetic question of decadent consumption.
The work is set out to question contemporary
society's idea of the body by examining the
aesthetics of such. The idea is that the body has
become co modified. The great interest I have is in
the body politic. How it is attacked by consumerism
and how it responds to it, in my work I a see its
intrinsic behaviour taking second place to
consumerism. Bodies with no other interest than to
be commodified in many forms.
The ready-made; is an object from the world of
commodification/ mass production, its object has an
aesthetic value in that the object is a mannequin-
it is not real- it is not visceral ( NOT FLESH AND
BONE) These objects are conditioned to consumerism.
The drawing work on display are created using a
continuous line, then worked into to add flesh, the
images that created are cyborgs, Graeme's
fascination with them since his childhood. And the
body's dystopian descent into the word of
hyper-real.Graeme's drawings have a classical style,
but flow in a expressively twisted dystopian vision
of contemporary society.
The video works on display are collection pieces on
display,ranging from past works,performance,

OUTSIDER and NOISE=NOISE present....
a night of semi-amplified, industrial, alchemical noise
" "[sic] TIM GOLDIE
7pm - close FREE EVENT
Experimental music band based in South London. We
use found and recycled objects i.e discarded pianos,
corrugated iron, shell casings, oil drums, yamaha
keyboards , scaffold and blow torches. We're totally
acoustic and improvise live. Our Tracks last
anywhere between 35 and 45 mins. We're into organic
meditative sounds and our gigs are a relaxing
ethereal affair. Our music has been used and is
being used for film sound tracks and exhibitions.
We're into it for the SOUND and the MOMENT.
Vultures started as a discussion that led to a noise
making venture which has taken on it's own life and
is carrying us with it. The musicians involved come
from industrial, jazz, improv, rock, classical, and
various goth style backgrounds. We never know where
Vultures is going to take us, but we are
unbelievably excited to see how various combinations
of these influences will manifest themselves into
new, exciting sounds with which we hope we can
entertain and inspire others to do the same!..
Vultures has been honored to have a track included
on Mrs. Vee Record's latest noise compilation
entitled Manifesto. The track is a remix of one or
our recordings made at the Tower of Music by Scott
Robinson and it features the Tiple playing of Jade
Dante, Columbian composer and electronic and
traditional music artist.

noise, drones & silence.
" "[sic] TIM GOLDIE
Defusing preconceptions of what a live event should
be and degrading its components - the sound, the
performance, the audience - without imposing
aesthetic or moral limits: this is the reason for
being of Deflag Haemorrhage/Haien Kontra, the
project born in 2001 from the minds of two of the
most unpredictable and 'conceptual' contemporary
sonic activists: Mattin and " "[sic] Tim Goldie.
Ferocity and immobility, instruments abused and
unused, musicians zombiefied in their 'stage
persona' and in general the sense of psychosis, of
necessary superfluousness that gushes from every
gesture, from each decision taken by this
anglo-basco duo make their live event an experience
that is all but impossible to relate to, at least
until they've stripped you of the costuming of
dominant culture. " "[sic] Tim Goldie is one of the
most original noise musician/performers on the
European scene. His double album "ABJECTOR"[sic] is
a violent and considered examination of the
fragmentation of language, the de-composition of
instrumental research and the painful suffering that
accompanies it. Far from any current or cultural
influence, " "[sic] Tim Goldie's work places itself
in a unique conceptual universe, and its cruel voice
warbles a mix of agony and ecstasy. Valerio Tricoli,
Netmage Festival, Italy 2009
ONE CRUEL VOICE. The agony, the ecstasy: extreme
emissions from the human voice box. No instrument
conveys as broad a range of emotions - love,
tenderness, pain, longing - than the human voice.
Towards the periphery of the vocal spectrum,
however, where words turn to howls, gibbers and
wails, emotional certainties dissolve, and the
extremes of human experience flow together: the old
pleasure pain dichotomy, right there in the
distressed whimper of a vocal chord. " "[sic] Tim
Goldie has been on the radar a little while, chiefly
through his membership of Deflag Haemorrhage/Haien
Kontra, an outfit with Basque sound artist Mattin.
His debut album "ABJECTOR" [sic] is one of the most
flat-out original noise albums I have heard in some
time: a punishing, determinedly outre, excursion
into drum improv, digital noise and extreme vocal
gymnastics. The first cd recalls the acoustic
investigations of Alvin Lucier, extended periods of
improvised drumming, credit cards and scraped snare,
investigation of the properties of an instrument as
crucial as technical skill. The second CD - the
heavily titled "Devocalised
Fluchtverdachtiger/Blocksperre Refluxur"[sic] brings
vocals into the equation: shrieked and wailed,
hoarse with emotion, often distorted by crackling
static, or by lips pressed against the skin of a
snare. The language itself, though, is fractured and
mangled, meanings dissolved or hiding latent; a
musical counterpart, perhaps, to the aggressive
datafeed spew of Kenji Siratori's postmodern novel
'Blood Electric'." By Louis Pattison Plan B magazine
