Mel Brimfield at the LAB

Quantum Foam, the film work by artist Mel Brimfield commissioned by Kinsale Arts Festival 2014, will be showing at The LAB in Dublin next Thursday 11 December.

The LAB will host three films by the artist, tying together the national tour of the artist’s work, which kicked off at Kinsale Arts Festival in September with the support of Arts Council of Ireland’s touring work grant. We’ll be talking to students from the MA in Art Research Collaboration at Dun Loaghaire IADT about how the project came together. From 6pm, Mel will be in conversation about her work with critic Francis Halsall. The talk is free to attend, and you can read Francis’ essay on Quantum Foam here.

And tomorrow night, film installation Four Characters In Search of A Performance, originally commissioned by Jerwood Visual Arts, opens at Galway Arts Centre. Mel will be giving a talk about her work at 12pm this coming Saturday. The show runs until 17 January 2015.
