Bricks in the Rain | 6th April – 9th May 2013


 ‘Bricks in the Rain’ is a bewitching and incredibly beautiful display of ceramic sculpture, archive, film and sound.

 

Irish ceramic artists undertook a 5-week residency at Fule International Ceramic Art Museum, in, China where they created artworks, using local materials and facilities.  Their creations were then put on display, ensuring a permanent presence in China - an extraordinary opportunity for the group and for the profile of Irish Ceramic Art.

 

The group includes some of Ireland’s foremost ceramic artists; Sara Flynn, Frances Lambe, Michael Moore, Laura O’Hagan, Neil Read, Sinéad Glynn, and Kathleen Moroney.  Also featured is the work of 3 Swiss artists, who they met in China.  Their combined artworks respond to and reflect the extraordinary and international flavour of the residency.

 

Journalist and writer Eleanor Flegg accompanied them to China, and working with sound-maker Declan ÓCualáin and film-maker Andrew Standen-Raz has combined archival interviews, film and sound recordings which add a truly creative twist within the show.  The curator Hilary Morley, has endeavoured to marry this unique combination of media into an unforgettable Irish/Chinese cultural experience.

Noli Me Tangere / Touch Me Not Backwater Artist Group Exhibition 2012

Opening 16th November at 6pm

Exhibition runs until 1st December

 


Gallery open 10am – 6pm Monday to Saturday

Noli Me Tangere, meaning, “don’t touch me” / “touch me not”, ”cease holding on to me” or “stop clinging to me” is an iconographic staple of the Christian Art cannon. Moving away from its inherent religious associations through a playful form of subversion, this exhibition aims to reposition this statement in relation to contemporary artistic practice.

Noli me tangere, when viewed through the lens of these artworks, creates an in-between state, bordering the surreal, conjuring associations of the supernatural and the otherworldly. This statement can simply be interpreted as a physical distance between viewer and subject while some works suggest a conceptual intangibility, where the viewer is faced with an ambiguity of intention. In positioning the work as either the threat or the threatened, an element of danger and vulnerability comes into play.
Social conventions and gallery etiquette obviously oppose a tactile enquiry in relation to artworks - do not touch. The sentiment however, to ‘cease holding on to me’, can be read as a playful dialogue with the viewer, insinuating an intimacy while acknowledging the limited powers of communication.

Curated by Tom Dalton and David Upton, the show features the work of 14 artists from the Backwater Artist Studio Group and a specially commissioned text piece by independent writer Claire Eleanor Healy.

Boundary Works II

CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery present the work of sometimes provocative and interdisciplinary artist Mocksim. The solo exhibition is a collection of key works from the artist’s practice which uses digital tools, photography and live art. Expect short looping films, unashamed minimalism and the stupid application of science and photography ad technology. The show includes Now Man, in which participants/performers are challenged to respond to the movements of a spinning video camera, described as a game of “digital narcissism, heady sadism and running about”. Also on display will be Contra-Invention, nominated for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize 2012, a series of images re-appropriated by the artist through hacking local government systems, photographs taken by traffic wardens of illegally parked cars in one British town.

A live performance piece will take place at the opening reception on Culture Night between 6 pm and 9pm.

Runs until Saturday, October 20.
