Alejandro Guijarro - Momentum (2010-)

"The artist travels to the great quantum mechanics institutions of the world and, using a large-format camera, photographs blackboards as he finds them. 

Momentum displays the photographs in life-size. 

Before he walks into a lecture hall Guijarro has no idea what he might find. He begins by recording a blackboard with the minimum of interference. No detail of the lecture hall is included, the blackboard frame is removed and we are left with a surface charged with abstract equations. 

Effectively these are documents. Yet once removed from their institutional beginnings the meaning evolves. The viewer begins to appreciate the equations for their line and form. Color comes into play and the waves created by the blackboard eraser suggest a vast landscape or galactic setting. The formulas appear to illustrate the worlds of Quantum Mechanics. What began as a precise lecture, a description of the physicist’s thought process, is transformed into a canvas open to any number of possibilities.”

"When The Beatles were depressed, thinking, the group is going nowhere, and this is a shitty deal, and we’re in a shitty dressing room…I’d say, 'Where are we going, fellas?' They’d go, 'To the top, Johnny!' And I’d say, 'Where's that, fellas?' and they’d say, 'To the toppermost of the poppermost!' and I’d say, 'Right!' Then we’d all cheer up.” - John Lennon

Why do my college essay plans always lead to such things?

I played (Mick my solo) album, but he talked all the way through it. The only time I got any insight from him was when I went to take a pee. I come out of the john and he’s dancing around the room. For a minute I watch him, and he’s just enjoying it. So I went back into the john and slammed the door and walked out again, and he’s just sitting on the couch. But that’s Mick. I know the bloke. I guess I saw him liking it when he didn’t know I was looking. So that’s cool.

Midnight on a dreary Monday in a Jazz Club in some obscure corner of Paris.
The floor is opened by an intimate set from Dutch sax player Benjamin Herman, followed by a legend from the golden age of jazz - Sonny Rollins. Next is a soulful and touchingly beautiful blues piece byArnett Cobb from the deep South of Texas and to finish the night off, Afro-Jazz icon Winston Ngozi presents a lively and colourful set straight from the townships of South Africa.
