'Middy', Mid-Suffolk Light Railway Co.



The Mid-Suffolk Light Railway, known affectionately as 'The Middy' was a classic case of a railway built later on in the great railway age that never paid its way. Indeed, it effectively went broke before it opened but still managed to struggle on for 50 years! This fine example of quirky English history is remembered in Suffolk's only railway museum, also called the Mid-Suffolk Light Railway Co., which is dedicated to keeping the memories alive the memories of the Middy.

Cooklin Signs with Indigo Art

If you book in to a top quality hotel in pretty much any of the world's major cities these days, the chances are that you will be surrounded by artwork, designed to add an element of sophistication to the proceedings and to enhance the interior design. In recent times what is hanging on the walls is just as likely to be photography as it is to be one of the more traditional art forms, a change that has come about as attitudes regarding what constitutes a valid artwork have relaxed and photography has become more widely accepted and appreciated.

Indo Art, which is one the UK's biggest suppliers of bespoke artwork to the hotel, leisure and corporate sectors, confirms that things have changed dramatically, and that this in turn has opened up opportunities for photographers who are shooting material that is geared towards this highly specialised part of the market.

Indigo Art have selected 9 pieces from Cooklin's fine art photography collection titled 'Water Reeds'. These images were shot at Lopham Fen in Suffolk using medium format black and white film. The images were self-developed, scanned and creatively enhanced in Lightroom to give a moody atmospheric look.

Cildo Meireles

Cildo Meireles is one of the leaders in the international development of Conceptual art,and this Brazilian artist has made some of the most politically telling, aesthetically seductive and philosophically intriguing works in recent art.


Cildo MeirelesEureka / Blindhotland 1970–5Tate © Cildo Meireles
His objects and atmospheric installations from the late 1960s onwards never fail to surprise, ranging in scale from a tiny work in the form of a finger-ring to a vast installation covering 225m². Composed of familiar everyday objects, yet accumulated in forms that we never imagined before, such as the all-red living room of Red Shift 1967–84, or the massive tower of radios of Babel 2001, Meireles's works lead us from an initial feeling of amazement to a deeper level of engagement. Eight of these great installations are on display here simultaneously for the first time, including the labyrinthine Through 1983–9, and Volatile 1980–94, a multi-sensory environment that plays with our response to danger, real or imagined.

The exhibition also includes his celebrated Insertions into Ideological Circuits 1970, by which he devised a method to disseminate messages of protest under the military dictatorship in Brazil. This is Meireles's first major retrospective in the UK and it presents a powerful and intriguing tour of his most memorable works.



Rodchenko & Popova: Defining Constructivism
12 February – 17 May 2009

Rodchenko & Popova: Defining Constructivism will explore the work of Alexander Rodchenko and Lyubov Popova between 1917 and 1929. Arguably two of the Russian avant-garde’s most influential and important artists, they were integral to the stylistic and theoretical underpinning of Russian Constructivism. With over 350 objects, this exhibition charts the evolution of their aesthetics from abstract painting to graphic design and will include their designs for cinema and theatre as well as numerous posters, books, and costumes.
