14/09/2006 - 24/11/2006

City: Liverpool

Blurprint of the Senses
Models and Instruction in an Age of Uncertainty

Since 2001 in Berlin the convergeance of the found collection of paraphenalia that spells a citys history through the life of one mans remnants strewn in a former DDR apartment and the twinning of collections from journeys in and outside the city from the random collection of paintings and erformances, the assemblage of collections found scattered around the flotsam of the shifting tide of Berlin. Its reunification allowed for a collection to blossom from circus paraphanelia - Berlin and Moscow being the capitals of the big tops entertainment, to natural specimens discarded on the street from the former eastern Natural History Museum.

The nucleus of this collection inspired the ever random spontaneity of the growth of the museumMAN permanent collection, inspired in its formulation as a curiosity shop without specific bounds, and in 2001 inspired the project BLUEPRINT OF THE SENSES much ofwhich is recorded in the ensuing years.

Artists exhibiting in museumMAN have played a large part in its formulation. Since its incarnation in Liverpool, many local, national and international artists have exhibited and will exhibit within the newest manifestation of the nomadic museum, to celebrate the urban and cultural diversity of Liverpool itself.


BLUE PRINT of the SENSES
Models and Instruction in an age of Uncertainty


Twinned together,the theme park and museum are intrinsic models borne out of polar, yet intertwined hetrotopias.
The ethereal and peripharal site of the circus,sites of exotic exageration,mocked and painted wonder,collapsable consetenaed candy shacks and illusionist canvas of the alien and its physical extremities-the "permanent" Curiosity Shop was ,it seems, its bone collector.
In the mid !9th Century the acceleration of exact science was to dust away eccentric aesthetes and devotees of unique forms and sciences,to establish the beginnings of the catalogue,and to develop guidance through history in an order that made human,animal,botanical,geological,spacial evolution,once an ill considered far away labyrinth deliberate tools of selective representation in order to guide and instruct firstly the acamedician,and from the early success of World Fairs and Expositions,that of the public too.
By the beginnings of the 20th Century,both instiitutes had laid foundations.Architecture of folly and attainment,sympathy,harmonies,wonder and awe,though divisive in their aims,have become brothers to the crowds.Architectual butrusses of ascent and descent in age of uncertainty.
Blue Prints of the Senses will aim toward representing both artists and architects visions wether utopic or apocalyptic.An organic assemblageThe aim being the exhibition itself forms its own dynamic dialogue through stark,witty,fetishistic,planned and chaotic structure.Where Susan Hiller's Punch and Judy video insatallation awaits for the ergonimic immersion into space.in and out of memory,to the glass entombent of extinct wildlife,leant from The Manchester Natural History Museum,an icecream van,fortune tellers behind marquettes of Frank Gehry's Bilboa and The Judisches Museum blueprints of Lieberskind hanging akin to a tatooists map.An intimate installation of Goshka Macuga facing a cascade of muscled men,invited for the day for competition,hammocked from behind by large rainbow,David Medalla''s Stitch in Time,an interactive weave of the particapory,the ephemeral,transportable,and through interaction,a free form catalogue of a definitive time.Much like the exhibition itself..
