IN CALLING FORTH AND STRENGTHENING THE IMAGINATION IN BOYHOOD AND EARLY YOUTH

from first dawn
by day or starlight
everlasting motion

little jimmy norcliffe
he looked after me
sorted me out
with a good shovel
and a pair of wellingtons

high objects
the mean and vulgar
works of man

showed me how to dig
without hurting my back
to lay concrete slabs
write out betting slips
on a bag of cement

enduring things
life and nature
purifying

INVIGILATOR : DERBY 2007
Invigilator forms part of the Walk to Work series of pieces.

Invigilator : Derby Paul Conneally transposes Nikki Pugh’s journey to work as invigilator in Birmingham gallery VIVID to a starting point at Loughborough railway station. Paul catches the first commuter train to arrive. This takes him to Derby from where he then follows the left rights and straight ons of Nikki’s walk in Birmingham but this time in Derby until he reaches his work destination which he finds is on a building site. Here he sets up his Invigilator’s chair and beside it his visitors book. Paul tidies up the space and then invigilates it asking people passing through the space to fill in the visitors book just as the invigilator at an art gallery does.

The photographic doccumentation of INVIGILATOR : DERBY was undertaken by Kevin Ryan.

INVIGILATOR is a Collaborative piece by Paul Conneally, Nikki Pugh and kevin Ryan
