In Portents

// In Portents. A Screening by Kevin A Freeney, Hannah Fitz & Tanad Williams // Block T // Wed. 25 Feb. 6pm // featuring accompanying text by current ACW MA candidate Eimear Walshe

In Portents is a video work that flattens out an intersection between Hannah Fitz’s Sculpture, Tanad Williams’s Text and Kevin Freeney’s Video. By layering the work in this way the artists are submitting to systems of distraction, watching works be made and un-made in their relations to one another.

In Portents shows a sculpture by Fitz held in the direct and un-ending gaze of Freeney’s camera. It is made up of moulded lenticular prints; bent images show corners of fruit and foliage, half appearing before they flick in the light or slide into the edge of another image. Tanad Williams’ mouth labours through his text, obstructed by a gobstopper sweet. The images conjured by the text are flipped and distorted, moulded (like the sculpture) to be caught at the turning point of one image into another. The video fastens voice and object onto a blank grey horizon; sculpture, text, and video itself move within an infinite loop.

This Exhibition is kindly Supported by The Arts Council of Ireland. Opening Reception Kindly Sponsored by The Dice Bar, Wed. 25 Feb. 6pm.

Exhibition Continues: 26th February – 11th March; Monday – Friday 9am – 7pm.

All works are rehearsals; new beginnings that look like reconsiderations. There’s no newness and nothing lasts. There is no time.

Uri Aran’s exhibition Ones opens in Mother’s Tankstation on the 18th February and runs until 28th March 2015.

Morgan Quaintance

We are delighted to welcome our new IMMA/ACW fellow Morgan Quaintance.

Morgan is a London-based writer, musician, broadcaster and curator. Born in South London in 1979, he is a regular contributor to Art Monthly, Art Review, Frieze, and a number of curatorial sites and blogs. He is a contributing editor for E-Flux’s online publishing portal Art Agenda, and is a founding member of the curatorial collective DAM PROJECTS. As a presenter he currently works with the BBC’s flagship arts programme The Culture Show, and is also the producer of Studio Visit, a weekly hour-long interview show broadcast on Resonance 104.4 FM, featuring international contemporary artists as guests.

Below is a brief summary of the topics Moran will be covering in the course of his ACW seminars:

The sessions will be based around casting a sceptical and investigative eye over various contemporary cultural phenomena. We’ll be looking at the internet, intersectionality, the power of images, popular music, consciousness, identity and the nature of the self. It may sound complicated and dry, but our entry point into each of these areas will be short and accessible texts, podcasts, music and film.

The idea is that we’ll be able to make our way towards and through complex ideas from quite simple materials. Each session will be a mix of about 35% group discussion based on whatever text or audio visual material has been sent out, 15% short presentations on each topic from myself, and 10% screenings of work by contemporary artists.

The Lie of the Land

An exhibition featuring works by Helen Devitt (Cork), Kenneth O’Halloran (Dublin/L.A), Adrian Duncan (Dublin/Berlin) and Jill Quigley (Belfast)

Curated by Miranda Driscoll.

Opening Wednesday 11 February 7pm
Exhibition runs until Sunday 22 March 2015

The Lie of the Land; a multi-part project that will take place at Sirius Arts Centre in
Cobh, Co. Cork, will encompass an exhibition and a reading / listening night. The project
examines the idea that there are certain materialities (both in the work and in the
landscape) that seem to serve as cultural remnants. These remnants can sometimes
define a certain Irish aesthetic in the landscape, or what might be perceived as one.
Tackling well-trodden arguments around the monument, the ruin and modernity in
Irish landscape and architecture, the project considers perceptions of contemporary
rural Ireland as shown through visual art and writing. The Lie of the Land is curated by Miranda Driscoll and features work from Adrian Duncan, both alumni of the art in the Contemporary World Masters programme.

The Lie of the Land Reading/Listening Night
Friday 27 February 7pm

To accompany the Lie of the Land exhibition, this reading / listening event will include
a reading of short stories from Cork based writer Sara Baume and Berlin based artist
Adrian Duncan. In addition to this, radio producers Kevin Brew (RTÉ Radio 1) and Luke
Clancy (Soundsdoable / RTÉ Lyric FM’s Culture File) will play sound and stories from the
radio archive reflecting their experience of the Irish landscape. The event will include an
informal discussion. More info here
