“What we see of things is what they reflect. What stays inside them is their own business” - @vladimirkokolia.  Really enjoyed your little situation ⚡️👍

“The Aerodrome” is currently on view at Ikon Gallery in Birmingham, England, through September 8. This exhibition, dedicated to the memory of former Ikon director Michael Stanley, is structured loosely on Rex Warner’s 1941 wartime novel “The Aerodrome,” a book that made a great impression on Stanley. The show features many of the artists he worked with, including Michael Craig-Martin, Thomas Houseago, and Jenny Saville.

Nearly 4 years of living in Birmingham, but I've finally seen the Ikon Gallery and its Cherry Blossoms at their peak - without a doubt worth the wait and unquestionably one of the most beautiful scenes in the city! Really glad to have finally caught it, albeit after half the city has already posted it to instagram 😂 #Winwithhoya

About time I posted a new picture of myself out, even better that I’m standing next to the beautiful Marlene - Still on a high from this night 💖

Person to Person, People to People, 2007 by Stephen Willats. Originally commissioned by Michael Stanley for @mk_gallery  its aim was to make “a direct connection between the world represented inside MK Gallery and the reality of people’s actual lives in the immediate surrounding environment.” Residents of Netherfield Estate in Milton Keynes were invited by the artist to make super 8 films and photographs along routes in their neighbourhood. See it in The Aerodrome, continues until 8 September.

La vida se ríe de la limitación de velocidad, Los pasos son torpes entre las calles líquidas de asfalto de colores, Las manos se escurren sobre piernas distintas intentando apagar voces que ensordecen la poca cordura que se finge aparentar. Las noches han perdido su Tempo bailándole a un ensordecedor silencio, enredadas en cualquier esquina oscura de un barrio céntrico. Las nubes emborronan miradas con altos porcentajes de probabilidad de precipitación. Las voces se acurrucan en un hueco entre el lóbulo occipital y el tacto del pelo suave y enredado en una bufanda de vida, demasiado grande, constriñendo todo aliento, toda señal de socorro. Levanta las pupilas, Observa la ciudad contaminada de futuro, Envenenada de realidad. 🌞

Today...Presented as part of The Aerodrome- An exhibition dedicated to the memory of Michael Stanley Ikon Films – David Austen and Shezad Dawood £5 Booking essential Tuesday 16 July 2019 6.00pm — 8.00pm Written and directed by David Austen, Crackers (2007) is set within a single room redolent of faded grandeur, somewhere in Hove. Sparsely furnished, it is where two protagonists, Tin and Heart (actors Toby Kebbell and David Leon), engage in an exchange that touches on themes that often occur in Austen’s work – love, sex, death and the aches of human impulse and emotion. Part documentary, part character-driven narrative, Shezad Dawood’s film Piercing Brightness (2013, rated 12) considers the diverse and changing communities in Preston. Against the backdrop of the Lancashire landscape, which has the highest UFO sighting rate in the country, the film applies the lens of science fiction to fixed notions of race, migration and identity. @ikon  #theaerodrome  #michaelstanley  @leontrotskii  #tobykebbell  @shezaddawood
