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.

Boundary Works II is organised by CIT Crawford College of Art and Design in association with Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts  & School of Engineering and Informatics - University of Sussex, UK

BETRAYAL by Bill Griffin @ CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery 8pm, Friday, September 7
Fond of a Moth by Brian Cronin @ CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery 7.30pm, Friday, September 7

Tickets €10 available at CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery – 021 4335210 [email protected]

Betrayal is a one-man play written and performed by Cork artist Bill Griffin.
The play is based on the last three years of Vincent Van Gogh’s life.

Griffin lives in Allihies, on the Beara peninsula, and works as a full-time painter.

While convalescing after an injury, he decided to turn his hand to writing for the stage.
A recent trip to the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam inspired him to explore the myths and legends surrounding the end of Van Gogh’s life.

Griffin paints a canvas live as he performs the play, the resulting piece has often sparked an auction at the end of the play.
The play has been well received since its first airing in Allihies Copper Mine Museum and Griffin has since been invited to perform it in Kenmare, Bere Island, Cork City and Kinsale.
CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery welcome back ‘Betrayal’ due to popular demand after its initial performance in the gallery Thursday, July 12.

Award winning short film ‘Fond of a Moth’ by Brian Cronin will be screened as a prelude to the play at 7.30, Friday, September 7.
‘Fond of a Moth’ was the opening short in Cork Opera House for the 2011 Corona Cork Film Festival.
The film features Bill Griffin’s brother Mossie as a lead actor.

Cronin has directed several music videos for Mick Flannery and Pavlovs Dogs and is currently working on a documentary about Roman Gypsies.
Benny McCabe has commissioned Cronin to make a short film for each of his premises - Cork heritage pubs - which will be launched later this year.
