Matt Stokes

'Long After Tonight' documented a specially constructed event staged in St Salvador’s Church, Dundee, Scotland, parts of which were used during the 1970s as a venue for some of the city’s first Northern Soul sessions. (Northern Soul is, simply put, African American Soul music that was transferred to the north of England during the 1960s, thereby dislocating it from its original context and establishing this distinct genre).

JAM remixes Warrington Museum

The John Affey Museum (JAM) is a speculative museum project led by artist and researcher Clair Le Couteur, reimagining museum histories from the perspective of the outsider. JAM is named after John Affey (1904–1969), an amateur collector and folklorist who worked in the British Antarctic whaling industry in the first half of the 20th century. Affey’s methods and ideas shared features of magical thinking, fringe academia and conspiracy theories, in particular in the habit of finding unexpected and unlikely associative links between unusual things.

Womanstanley are a group of volunteers who are passionate about their roots and hometown and call for a more inclusive, accessible and exciting art scene in Warrington. 

Their exhibitions express the belief that if someone has a piece of art to show, they should be given a platform to show it. Womanstanley’s existence encourages others to have the confidence to make something happen in the places they grew up or live in.

A daily journey. A brief encounter. A thousand stories.

There is a picture in my head. It looks like an old photograph. I am a Romanticist.
And in this picture, this image, I look just like Celia Johnson. I look just like Sophia Loren. I am a black and white image. I am standing on the platform. I am standing in the rain.
And I say something like…
“Kiss me as though you might never see my face again.”
