The city is haunted by traces of what came before… Exhibition and launch of a new label, Crooked Acres, showcasing the work of Michael C Coldwell and the Urban Exploration collective.

Exhibition of photography, film and music by Michael C Coldwell
6pm — 11pm, 22nd September 2017, Left Bank Leeds

The city is haunted by traces of what came before. The past leaves a material residue, but sometimes little else. Absences and voids litter the landscape, fading photographs are all that remain of places which no longer exist, or have transformed beyond recognition — strange sounds hang in the ether. The fragments that are left behind are no longer part of any meaningful narrative, they no longer make a coherent picture. They are not memories anymore, but something else. Confronted with these remnants the imaginary is activated. We are driven to try and make sense of this detritus. We fill in the gaps with stories, myths, ghosts, hauntings — but the real spectrality lies in the affect of loss, and the uncanny afterlife of the absent, gifted by recorded media.

Michael C Coldwell (also known as Mick Schofield) is an interdisciplinary artist and practice-led researcher in photography at the School of Media and Communications, University of Leeds. When he hasn't got his head stuck in books by Derrida and Baudrillard, he spends his time taking photographs of slums that were cleared 100 years ago, or recording radio stations which have long disappeared. This event marks his debut solo exhibition, alongside the launch of a new record label called Crooked Acres, specialising in hauntology and experimental music.

Free Entry. Prints and music will be on sale at the event. Performances from 9pm. Family friendly. Fully stocked bar! Get down early to see the prints in good light.

This event is to be the first of many by Crooked Acres, a new record label in Leeds releasing experimental techno, ambient and other noise. The label is run by the Urban Exploration collective, and will be releasing new music on cassette tape and vinyl from Autumn 2017.
