Seán Scully at Crawford Art Gallery

Jun 20, 2015 03:32 pm

June 27 – September 12, 2015
Crawford Art Gallery, Emmet Place, Cork

Crawford Art Gallery presents Figure/Abstact, a major exhibition by the internationally celebrated artist Seán Scully from June 26 – September 12.

Figure/Abstact is Scully’s first ever museum show in Cork and coincides with his seventieth birthday on June 30.

Figure/Abstact will feature works from 1964 to the present, most of which have never been exhibited before. Scully is best known for the epic ‘stripe’ paintings he has made since the early 1980s: few are aware that he explored figurative painting before turning to abstraction. The exhibition will feature examples of his earliest drawings and paintings, tracing his evolution as an artist through the 1960s and into the 1970s and beyond. The largest work featured is Horizontal Soul (2014), a monumental oil on canvas over eight metres in length.

To mark the occasion, and to celebrate Scully’s achievements as an Irish artist on the international stage, the Crawford Gallery will restore the síneadh fada over the ‘a’ in the spelling of  ‘Seán’ for the duration of Figure Abstract‘s run in Cork.

The photographic works are presented in vibrant site-specific projection installations that unite the private act of staring into a personal computer screen with the public experience of viewing a gallery exhibition.

Diarmait Grogan & William Hamilton at The MART Gallery

Jun 26, 2015 01:14 pm

Shanghai Ritual
7th – 12th July | Opening Reception: 6.00pm – 8.30pm Sunday, 5th July
The MART, 190a Rathmines Rd, Rathmines, Dublin
Opening hours: Tues – Sun, 1 – 6pm

Irish artists Diarmait Grogan and William Hamilton spent a year in Shanghai, culminating in a shared photographic portrayal of the city. Shanghai Ritual is an atmospheric study of place and displacement, set in the largest city proper in the world in 2013.

These images present an imaginary city, the combined impressions of two artists who sought to consolidate their conflicting senses of disconnection and empathy while living abroad. Ultimately, it is a tribute to a vibrant city, caught between times, that will soon be changed forever.

With thanks to Laois County Council.

Christiane Peschek at The Copper House Gallery

Jun 26, 2015 12:24 pm

13 Kinder
4 – 31 July | Opening: 4 July at 8pm
The Copper House Gallery, St Kevin’s Cottages, Synge Street, Dublin 8

Christiane’s 13 Kinder explores the captivating process of self-projection as seen through the eyes of German and Austrian children, aged between 4 to 10.

Christiane Peschek worked with these children for several months, using the question “How do you want to be when you can become whatever is in your mind?” as a starting point. Their responses were represented through visual language, breaking the restraints of the written word, to better realise a child’s view of the world and their position within it. The work looks at the link between the memory and legacy of the past, the interpretation of the present and the possibility and desire for the future.

PhotoIreland 2015: Dominic Hawgood at the Oonagh Young Gallery

Jun 26, 2015 12:21 pm

Under the Influence
3 – 31 July | Opening: 2 July at 6pm
Oonagh Young Gallery, 1 James Joyce Street, Liberty Corner, Dublin 1

Hawgood’s practice combines photography, moving image, CGI and lighting design, and explores the aesthetic crossovers between advertising, art and technology. His award winning series Under the Influence, examines the use of exorcism within London based African evangelical churches, and the merchandising of these contemporary rituals. The enigmatic experience of seeing deliverance first hand becomes the inspiration for a series that engages with topics about authenticity, desire, and the real.

Hawgood’s technical proficiency and clarity of vision extend beyond the picture plane into the gallery itself, creating an immersive experience similar to current installation art practices. The staging of this work in Oonagh Young Gallery, a dedicated contemporary art space, serves to underline this link with contemporary art.

This multidisciplinary approach to photography represents an exciting departure with a practice rooted in traditional methodology yet conspicuous in its technological and conceptual rigor. Through this series of works and their structured presentation, an inherent ambiguity is highlighted. What is real? Is it fact or fiction we are witnessing? With an eye for detail, every aspect of Hawgood’s work has been thoroughly considered

Island – Australia
4 – 31 July
The Copper House, St Kevin’s Cottages, Synge Street, Dublin 8

Going beyond the clichés of the island Down Under, the selection of works offers an insight into Australia’s people, landscapes and way of life. Navigating between the real, the expected and the imagined, the images presented constitute a suggestive and subjective portrait of Australia, poetical and sometimes harsh.

Presented by the Australian Centre for Photography and curated by Claire Monneraye, the exhibition includes works by Markus Andersen, Katelyn Jane-Dunn, Charles Kasprzak, Kristian Laemmle-Ruff, Jesse Marlow, Raphaela Rosella, Chris Round, David Maurice Smith, Juliet Taylor and Wouter Van De Voorde.

2 – 18 July 2015 | Opening: 2 July at 6.30 pm
Unit 4, James Joyce Street, Dublin 1
Opening Times: Thursday, Friday and Saturday 11 – 4pm

Free Range is a varied and eclectic exhibition of work from the group known as ‘The Place’ who have been nesting in the Incubation Space in Dublin City’s Arts Office, The Lab since April.

‘The Place’ is a collective of fifteen artists who graduated from NCAD together and who continued to work and further their arts education using the resources that are freely available. Each of them maintains their own studio practice.

They also attend lectures, events and openings, and relay the information gleaned to the rest of the group. They organise artist talks, workshops and critiques, directing their personal learning in the manner best suited to each of them and extending this to the collective.

The exhibition will be complemented by two events:
– There will be a public presentation and discussion of the collective’s experiences in Unit 4 on Saturday 4 July.
– A VAI Show and Tell devoted entirely to The Place collective will be held in the Incubation Space on 11 July.

‘Display Show’ | Group Exhibition at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios

Jun 25, 2015 10:37 am

Display Show
Curated by Gavin Wade (with Celine Condorelli & James Langdon).
2 July – 29 Aug 2015 | Opening Thursday 2nd July 2015, 6pm
Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin

Celine Condorelli, Andrew Lacon, Eilis McDonald, Flore Nove Josserand,Yelena Popova, Gavin Wade, Christopher Williams.

Art is not exhibited, art exhibits. Display Show initiates a set of artworks embedded with, and reliant upon, explicit conditions of display as a combination of functional attributes.

Display Show proposes to consider display as intrinsic to artistic production and interpretation, as the process of taking shape that redefines both notions of art as work and art as exhibition. In examining the politics of exhibition and display strategies, we seek to articulate practices more than critiques, and to this end find appropriate vocabularies, discern possible methodologies, and define relevant genealogies.

This exhibition project will be unfolded through an enquiry into forms of display, including an ongoing survey of radical display practices from the twentieth century, such as those of Franco Albini, Lina Bo Bardi, Frederick Kiesler, El Lissitzky, and Carlo Scarpa. These historical approaches will be considered through form and function and how they work in creating specific display conditions.

Luan Gallery is delighted to present Delicate Matter an exhibition showcasing the superb talents of Karen Donnellan, Jennifer Hickey and Liz Nilsson throughout July and August.

Delicate Matter will invite the viewer to explore the tactile beauty of carefully crafted sculpture and installation works in glass, porcelain and textiles. These works are inspired by the delicate matters concerning human existence such as:
• the metaphysical which, along with energy and light, inspires Karen Donnellan’s works in glass
• the relationship between nature and the human spirit – which informs the china sculptures of Jennifer Hickey, and
• the mental architecture of memory – which inspires Dublin based designer Liz Nilsson’s conceptual installations

Together these works will present audiences with both a literal and conceptual feast of Delicate Matter.

Delicate Matter will see each artist occupy a solo space in the gallery. Jennifer Hickey’s works in porcelain and bone china will fill the New Gallery Space and Karen Donnellan’s glass structures will play with the light in the River Gallery while the fantastic textile works of Liz Nilsson will feature in the Library Gallery, a nod to its former connection with the Athlone Woollen Mills.

Anna Macleod at The Dock

Articulated as a series of actions, small sculptures, posters, drawings, sound works, interdisciplinary collaborations, public interventions and site specific works, WATER CONVERSATIONS explores the complex interstices between landscape and geopolitics, science and technology, culture and tradition.

To date projects have been realized in Ghana, West Africa: a variety of locations through Northern India; Colorado, USA; Ireland and the Gobi Desert, Mongolia, Alberta Canada and Almería, Spain and in October 2015, Broken Hill, NSW, Australia.

‘Product Recall’ | Group Exhibition at Galway Arts Centre

May 26, 2015 03:55 pm

Product Recall
Curated by Anne Mullee
30 May – 4 July | Opening reception is 6pm on the 29th May 2015
Galway Arts Centre, 47 Lower Dominick Street, Galway

Damien Flood (IRL), Veronica Forsgren (SWE), Tom Watt (IRL), and Sarah Baker (USA)

Responding to the imagined ‘recall’ of an idea or a situation, Product Recall strives to eviscerate the meaning of the displaced, misfiring ‘product’; whether real or imagined, and explore the credo of material culture (gone bad).

Prompted by the protocols adopted by global conglomerations to retrieve products that could maim or even kill the consumer, Product Recall invites four artists to respond to the implications of the necessity to rescind an invitation to consume, buy, assimilate or adopt.

The predominately new work shown in this exhibition spans installation, video, paintings, drawings and performance, each in its own way considering the implications of a system gone askew, where accepted norms break down, transform and reorder themselves into that which may no longer function as initially intended. The collective ideations around the temporal world challenge the viewer to confront their own relationship with the object- product, the apparent crux of 21st century Western society.

Damien Flood is a painter based in Dublin. Using the notion of defunct belief systems he endeavours to look at the world anew and question the mundane and everyday around us. His paintings often have an unfinished, ephemeral quality. The body of work he has made for Product Recall is partly informed by a recent residency in Dubai, UAE, a glittering city created in the desert by the country’s ruling class.

Swedish artist Veronica Forsgren is also resident in Dublin. For this exhibition she explores the influential writings of Philip K. Dick, specifically his futuristic tale of off-the-shelf ‘experiences’ that can be bought and downloaded into the human brain (We Can Remember it for You Wholesale), on which the 1990 film Total Recall is based. Forsgren aims to create socially engaging pieces that encourage the audience to slow down and reflect, a tactic she refers to as “soft activism”.

American artist Sarah Baker lives in London, where her practice engages investigates interpersonal relationships between different castes of society, through scripted storytelling in video and images. Her protagonists are often gold diggers who have clambered to the highest echelons of the privileged classes. The iconic status of olfactive luxury, or perfume, is her focus here, with both the objectification of the scent bottle and the power of perfume explored through drawings, photography and a performative lecture.

Belfast-born artist Tom Watt deals with altering the existing architecture of a space, or temporarily assigning it a new function. For Product Recall he repurposes the first floor gallery of Galway Arts Centre, creating a vast ramp that bisects the space, creating a ‘negative space’ beneath, a potential site for a cache of recalled objects. |

‘Queertopia: It takes a village’ | Kieran Moore in Group Exhibition at 68projects, Berlin

25 artists explore the themes of corporality, sexuality, gender identity and the expectations of a society based on a binary gender model. In our society everyone is classified as either male or female. This binary conception results in a System of pre-defined desires, Needs and roles, which are tailor-made for men, women and the heterosexual relation between the two sexes. But what happens if we think one or even several steps further?

Alexandra Baumgartner, Norbert Bisky, Beka Bolkvadze, Carina Brandes, Kelli Jean Drinkwater, Antonio Da Silva, Anita Dube, Eva, Arlene Gottfried, Bertram Hasenauer, Roey Heifetz, Yousef Iskandar, Rajkamal Kahlon, Rona Kobel, Friedrich Kunath, Servando Cabrita Moreno, Kieran Moore, Onorato, Jack Pierson, Benjamin Reich, Michael Rockel, Jeshoshua Rozenman, Christian Schad, Elizabeth Schmirl and others.
