Page 23, Your Guide To Our Funeral Services, Dignity - Caring Funeral Services:

"If a now or existing headstone is to be used, the engraving can be done relatively quickly. However, it may take up to six months before the headstone may be placed on the grave, as the ground needs to settle."

These are the practical considerations to be taken into account when someone dies. But in terms of becoming dead, can it be dealt with in a similarly pragmatic way?

Ways to Die takes such a direct approach presenting:

instructions for suicide; pop-culture suicide; a house on fire; causes of death on generations of an extended family tree; children committing suicide; a memorial to those who die of natural causes.

Jenny Lu's video "7 basic ways to commit suicide" confronts death in the most direct way. In a style reminiscent of an airhostess presenting a safety demonstration, Jenny Lu delineates foolproof methods to take your own life.

Lu's video ultimately questions whether the artist should take responsibility for their own work and the influence it may have on others.

Carol Ho's sculptures of children are based on the Columbine High School massacre in 1998, and a series of copycat episodes that happened later in the US. These reminded her of the thin line between reality and fantasy; the gruesome and ambiguous messages behind the killings shook the conventional positive perceptions of children and childhood. Ho's sculptures mix violent imagery with a playful and aesthetic use of material - bright red plooms of polystyrene forming exit wounds from cartoon-like mdf figures shooting themselves.

John Hanson is showing an office ceiling panel with a peg-letter memo for 'all those who die of natural causes.' The panel and letters merge in the mushroom-magnolia spectrum of decaying white plastic and paint.

"I've noticed that I often say 'Thank you' twice... but I'm not sure I'm doubly grateful... Tautology. Clarification. Procrastination... I guess I'm after some kind of confirmation - confirmation of what is supposed to be obvious."

Lee Maelzer's painting of a house on fire both dramatises and faithfully records the event, as in a news photograph. The perfect composition and low horizon serve to highten the viewer's helplessness (or voyeurism). We are aware that if someone is in this fire, they are not coming out.

Richard McRae has produced a slide show of text on four Mac Classic computers and a printed family tree.

Each slide show uses a different transition time between pages of the text so that what is seen between all four screens is a random collection of statements. The texts are a combination of the names of his ancestors; demetaions of their personalities; and details of how they loved, lived and died. When seen together the four screens never stop generating myths.

The family tree charts the death for each ancestor. Many were lucky and died of old age. Others were not. Some died young; some in horrible ways.

One or two died in the most ridiculous of ways. One was crushed by bread, some died in a toilet and a few others were killed by an insect of one sort or another.

Richard Paul's sign "Way to go, John Belushi" lists the probable ingredients of Belushi's fatal overdose on a perspex board reminiscent of cinemas and motels. The actor becomes the subject of tabloid prurience - he lives and dies excessively so we don't have to.

'Ways To Die' is curated by John Hanson and Richard Paul

Open Studios Show at the GASWORKS, London

*** PRESS RELEASE ***

International Residency Programme
Visiting Artists Open Studios


Opening Night: Thursday 13 December 2001, 6 - 9pm

Open Studios: 14 - 16 December 2001, 12-6pm.



Yao Jui-Chung - Taiwan

Yao's studio is inhabited by toys turned into golden monsters, attractive and tempting as well as violent and scary. For the open studio Yao Jui-Chung has also made a series of elaborate, large scale ball-pen drawings of imaginary figures, set against a background of gold leaf. In Yao's work high and low cultures are crossed, both on a material and a symbolic level. In his drawings he explores the dark side of the human being, making transparent the seemingly innocent.

In the drawing War and peace, the size of his studio wall, he plays with words by writing the title both in Chinese and western characters. While in the west the meaning is evocative of literature or topical events, in Chinese the sound of the English phrase 'war and peace' means 'shake hands and get shit on them'. The chinese characters are based on this disturbing meaning which clashes with the beauty of the writing and the material. Yao comments on gaps between cultures, the creation of misunderstandings and the meanings of war.

Yao Jui-Chung is an artist and writer. He has exhibited internationally including the Venice Biennale in 1997 and The Contemporary MoMA in Fukuoka, Japan. He lives and works in Taipei.

The work of Velez has been described as 'a metaphor for love, sex and mortality'. In his installations, with a characteristic mix of seriousness and humour, he uses video, photography and CD rom to explore emotional states and to transform everyday objects into something personal, strange and unrecognisable.

Humberto Velez - Panama

The work of Velez has been described as 'a metaphor for love, sex and mortality'. In his installations, with a characteristic mix of seriousness and humour, he uses video, photography and CD rom to explore emotional states and to transform everyday objects into something personal, strange and unrecognisable.

For his open studio at Gasworks, Velez will present 'The Caretaker', a video installation that combines hallucinations, obsessions and memories. It is set in Manchester's Victoria Baths, which was closed in 1993, and was the finest historic swimming pool complex of its day in the north of England.

His residency will conclude with 'L'Avventura', an installation piece at St Peter's Church, Vauxhall, where Velez will hang a papier-m歊h?pi鎙ta in the shape of a pterodactyl. 'L'Avventura' is inspired by fantasies and scientific discoveries of the Victorian era.

'L'Avventura' will be shown at Vauxhall St Peter's Heritage Centre, 310 Kennington Lane, London SE11 5HY from 10 January to 10 February 2002.

Humberto Velez works as an artist, film-maker and art critic. He has exhibited extensively in Latin America and in Europe and has been selected to present the centrepiece of the Lima Biennial in 2002. He lives and works in Panama and UK.


Yao Jui-Chung is supported by the Council for Foreign Affairs, Taiwan and Taiwan International Artists' Village.

Humberto Velez is supported by The Arts Council of England and Visiting Arts.

Subject:英國夏日時間已經開始,它跟台灣的時差變為7小時

自2002年3月31日起,英國夏日時間已經開始,
調增一小時,也就是說,它跟台灣的時差變為7小時!

詳情請參考下表的說明!
updated by jj, 2002/04/02



the GMT(Greenwich Mean Time) for now :  
( 現在的格林尼治標準時間 )  :  




通常每年10、11、12、1、2、3月間,
英國時間就是格林尼治標準時間,它比台灣慢八小時。
時間換算公式如下(用24小時的時間值):

(英國時間)+(8小時)=(台灣時間)

for example:
00:00 (UK) <==> 08:00 (TAIWAN)
04:00 (UK) <==> 12:00 (TAIWAN)
08:00 (UK) <==> 16:00 (TAIWAN)
12:00 (UK) <==> 20:00 (TAIWAN)
16:00 (UK) <==> 24:00 = 00:00 (TAIWAN)
20:00 (UK) <==> 04:00 (TAIWAN)


通常每年3、4、5、6、7、8、9、10月間,
英國時間採用日光節約時間,又稱夏日時間
它比格林尼治標準時間快一小時,
它比台灣慢七小時。
時間換算公式如下(用24小時的時間值):

(英國日光節約時間)+(7小時)=(台灣時間)

for example:
00:00 (UK) <==> 07:00 (TAIWAN)
04:00 (UK) <==> 11:00 (TAIWAN)
08:00 (UK) <==> 15:00 (TAIWAN)
12:00 (UK) <==> 19:00 (TAIWAN)
16:00 (UK) <==> 23:00 (TAIWAN)
17:00 (UK) <==> 24:00 = 00:00 (TAIWAN)
20:00 (UK) <==> 03:00 (TAIWAN)


自1999年10月31日起,英國夏日時間已經結束
,調減一小時,恢復為正常時間,所以它跟台灣的時差
,改為八小時!
