Bringing thirteen non-native artists and makers to Paris, Dispatches is an exploration of the various ways in which we travel through, drift apart, and the ways in which creative production can traverse space and place. Serving as human plinths, John Alexander Skelton’s dressed mannequins become bodies in the room, static viewers cloaked in archival pieces by the English designer, whose research- based work explores historical folk traditions of the British Isles, with brooches hand- crafted in collaboration with Slim Barrett punctuating the walls between three silhouettes. Each figure constitutes an island in itself, but with every new visitor the room becomes an ever-evolving archipelago of inner worlds. Puppets join mannequins in becoming pilgrims and unmoving performers, the watchers and the watched. Brian Griffiths’ puppets sit unanimated yet full of potential, dreaming of life on the road or cocooning into themselves introspectively. Also in transit, Gabriella Boyd’s ghostly figures journey between states, representing the ephemerality of psychological space. Works on paper by Aysha E Arar become physical dispatches from her native Palestine; a mermaid who discovers she is not part of the fish world, a liminal being out of place. Creative resistance seeps through even the tightest of cracks, and dreaming itself becomes a form of travel. Meanwhile, Lotte Andersen’s work touches on family histories of immigration and poetic diaspora, in her family’s case from the Caribbean and India to the UK. Aaron Angell’s slow-moving snail carries its glazed house upon its back, frozen in time by the alchemical kiln. A geological mix of sifted shale, it is material that has enjoyed continental drift. If there is a slow meandering movement to the show, then there is also speed and activity mandated by external forces. Clara Hastrup’s ‘Perishables’ sees vegetables and fruits modified, remaking the world through a satirical, pseudo-consumerist logic. A fennel existing on borrowed time is set to local CET, a radish is daily reimagined as a shuttlecock. Sean Steadman’s practice is also invested in seeking out new territories through twisted logics. For him, the history of image production, from the prehistoric to contemporary, is corseted, perforated, entangled, swollen, and reframed into a chunky soup on the canvas. Catherine Story’s sculptures, reminiscent of old film cameras and props, investigate in the capital M Magic conjured up Old Hollywood’s tropes. If Story’s objects are dispatches from a bygone era, then LewisTeagueWright’s meld nostalgia with a kind of mystical futurism. Polaroids and fingerprints are used as tools of deception, these A.I. generated polaroid images represent a future envisioned by a blind entity within the framework of outdated photographic technology. Smaller sculptural works flit between macro to micro concerns, negotiated by Hamish Pearch by producing three dimensional events borne from diagrams and material transformations. Positioned in this way, the Earth becomes an island amongst a constellation of stars and galaxies. When we begin to consider island-ness as smallness, as humanness, our only hope is to never stop reaching out for one another.
