Wine Soak no.2: Where The Hell Was I?

The second in a series in which Jacob Ligvine Kreek goes in search of suitable refreshments at Dublin exhibition openings.

A number of possibilities presented themselves for last Thursdays evening’s entertainment, but after some deliberation I opted to attend the launch of a photographic book entitled Where Were You?, which was being hosted by the Gallery Of Photography. I was somewhat intrigued by this notion of a book documenting Dublin ‘youth culture’, as ‘youth’ and ‘culture’ were not two things I would normally associate with each other. I was also swayed by the fact that the Gallery of Photography can normally be relied upon to provide an acceptable enough vintage at their openings. Continue reading…

Wine Soak no. 1

The first in a series of occasional columns in which noted flâneur and wine expert, Jacob Ligvine Kreek, reports on what was on offer at a recent Dublin exhibition opening.

I had the extreme pleasure of soaking up a mixed bag of international selections at the Pallas Project’s space in Dominic Street last Friday night. The experience began with a palatable young Cabernet Sauvignon from Chile, Casa Leona 2010. This rough and ready red, available from Marks and Spencer’s, was accompanied by an exuberant and well attended opening of a “group exhibition” or so it seemed. Continue reading…

Selected Stories 4. The Joinery. OPENS THURS

Samuel Stevens
Why Look? (Selected Stories Programme Part Four)
17th – 27th November 2011
Opens Thursday 17th November 6-8pm
SCREENING: 17th November at 8pm
Runs Wed – Sat 12-6pm

Samuel Stevens brings together a collection of works originating from political and social realities, such as conflict in the Middle East and economic migration that questions the presentation of subjects, often moderated and prejudiced by ‘endorsed’ forms of representation such as journalism and news media.
The visual language established in Stevens’ work presents the audience with critical yet often poetic forms in film, video and photography. Recurrent themes connect visual codes of landscape, borders and migration with more orthodox forms of documentation and reportage such as journalism and political dogma. Continue reading…

Exhibition: Dublin Underground

Dublin Underground: An Exhibition Of Works Below Surface Level
Opening: Thursday 10th November
Exhibition Dates: Friday 11th -Sunday 13th November

This exhibition takes place this week at 2 Vicar Street and is organized by a group of 4th year NCAD students. Here’s what they have to say about it:

Basic Space is a vacant warehouse obtained by artists as a space for both working and exhibiting. It is 10000 square feet warehouse, which, grants the opportunity to create large scale works that would not normally be possible for emerging artists. Until recently it still operated as a warehouse and still bears evidence and the atmosphere of industry. Adjacent to each supporting walls, are trenches of muck. Long and narrow pathways where the concrete has been removed from the surface level. In this exhibition, a specific objective was given to the participating artists: Create a site specific work that engages with the underground.

Participating Artists
Sara Amido – Kari Cahill – Peter Donnellan – Michael Fitzgerald – Gregg Howie – Andreas Kindler von Knobloch – John Ryan – Daniel Toumey – Tom David Watt

Opening this Wednesday evening at 6pm is Teresa Gillespie’s new exhibition, Along The Borderland Bends, which consists of photography, sculpture and video. Teresa describes her work as follows:

Weaving through all my work is an ongoing engangement with borderlines: the lines that distinguish and facilitate the encounter with otherness, and borderlands. Borderlines and borderlands can be spaces of conflict as it is always a meeting of difference, but it is also a space full of potential for sensuousness.

Teresa is based in Dublin and is a graduate of the Glasgow School Of Art and the Royal College Of Art, London. She has exhibited in Ireland and internationally, and undertaken numerous artist’s residencies. The exhibition is curated by Jonathan Carroll. We have been assured that there will be both free beer and bretzels at the opening.
