"Sunday Morning: New Work by Jordan Baseman"
2006-06-10 until 2006-07-29
UK United Kingdom
Jordan Basemanís new work, made during a residency at Thorncliffe Football Club, High Green, Sheffield, deals with aspiration, poetry and belief. The work uses the idea of amateur football to investigate identity, desire, dreams and fantasy. Beautiful, funny and touching, Sunday Morning, reflects the local and universal characteristics of the sport. Jordan Basemanís work encompasses contemporary portraiture and documentary. There is a strong social/anthropological aspect to his practise, which is rooted in the unpredictable nature of the interview/observation processes. The resulting work focuses primarily on belief systems, the motivation of the human spirit and lived experience.
Sunday Morning has been produced following Jordan Basemanís residency at Thorncliffe Football Club, in High Green, commissioned by Ci Arts in association with the club. Over a three month period Jordan aimed to record all aspects of †Thorncliffe FC onto video. From this recorded information he has produced three short works, which, though different stylistically, each reflect aspects of aspiration, desire and potential - realised and unrealised.
The works will be shown in two venues: at Site from 10th June Ė 29th July and at Thorncliffe Football Pavilion on Saturday 25th & Sunday 26th June as part of the clubís annual regional tournament. For free transport to Thorncliffe Pavilion from Sheffield City Centre.
