Not Really Now Not Any More, Xerographic prints by Jamie George - London artist

Not Really Now Not Any More
(2015) Excerpt from HD single-channel looped video (dur. 3'33'') and installation view of accompanying print series – large format xerographic prints hand-tinted with coloured wallpaper paste, 5 of 25, each 80 x 120 cm.
Not Really Now Not Any More uses Alan Garner’s young adult fantasy novel Red Shift (1973) as a starting point – the project title taken from the last sentence of the book. In Garner’s novel an axe-head exists between a present and various pasts, an object – witness to time. The video depicts various axe-heads, located in a diaphanous ‘virtual’ location – an amalgamation of images of encampments, forts, rural landscapes and views from a motorway footbridge. Accompanying the video work is a large series of hand-tinted prints showing sculptural works in various display incarnations. Red Shift is primarily a novel about adolescent despair; pieces of the three narratives are alternated inan inconsistent pattern, calling special attention to their similarities beyond the landscape, the project explores these concerns using a specific found and cast object as a focus.

MY(WE) (2012) Jewood Visual Arts Project Space presented a commissioned body with Katie Schwab. The exhibition, comprised of new sculptural and photographic works and collaboratively produced publication, which was made available for visitors to take away for free. The work featured in the exhibition was developed through a period of research undertaken separately and collaboratively, and responded specifically to the architecture of the JVA project Space and the ways in which it is commonly inhabited by visitors. The publication incorporated this research, in the form of a short story written by Schwab and a two-part text written by myself entitled On Collectivity, On Loneliness.
