What’s happening in the Cosmic Care Home today?

Tune into the CCH 24hr TV transmission. Scrolling through the numerous cameras in the Home, the Helping Hands choose what you can see, around the clock. These cycles of slow-rest, care, break-fast, and well … what you can see now, is that time for the Gold Ones travels differently.

This event is part of Here, the Gold Ones meet, a residency and new video-installation by the art collective Reactor currently on show at Bonington Gallery, which documents the lives of a cohort of higher spiritual beings known as the Gold Ones.

The Gold Ones on KV-TV

Jun 28, 2016

A full sized version of the video can be watched here

When Max Gold’s video transmission first came through to us, he named himself as ‘one of the Gold Ones’. After tracking Max for a period, we began filming in the space we now understand to be the Cosmic Care Home. We had previously remained in what could be described as the outer or back spaces, looking through the walls that are at times transparent, or listening in on voices from the other side. This is where the Gold Ones live, and despite their existence on a higher spiritual plane, beyond the limitations of time – the place they inhabit resembles what we would describe as a ‘total institution’. Here on KV-TV now, is another of the Gold Ones, the Peeza Peel, whose muddled mindset of false beliefs and confused thinking, is multiplied by its three mouths. Although the Peeza Peel has access to different planes of reality, it struggles to successfully communicate these alternative perspectives with itself, until it finally reaches communion through the Carol.

This video produced for Kunst Vardo was developed through a live performance at ‘Film Free and Easy’ at Primary (Nottingham).

Whilst reviewing past material from the Function events we found this very short video edit of Function III, that was never made public for some reason. We enjoyed seeing it again, so here it is. More material from Function events I-V may emerge (if we can convert those old i-movie files!), whilst the group develop a new series of Function events (VI - X).

Featuring the work of AuntyNazi, Robin Close, Claire Hind, Mike Cunsolo, Anthony Schrag as well as Reactor

Reactor will screen a video from The Geodecity Project, at this Nottingham Contemporary offsite event at St. Christopher's Hall. Local artists’ moving image collective Annexinema present an evening of short films responding to themes raised in the Francis Upritchard exhibition. Drawing on Upritchard’s sculptural depictions of countercultural figures, the programme will take a critical look at late-1960s culture, psychedelia, found footage, re-contextualised objects, and the familiar made strange.

Including work by Peter Whitehead, Hem (Geiom), MACE, Alex Pearl, Lindsay Foster, Shezad Dawood, Reactor and Luke Fowler.
