In + Around | Deirdre Ni Argain and Natalie Pullen at In-spire Gallery, Dublin 1


September 27, 2018
Inspire gallery
56 Gardiner Street Lower – Dublin 1

Siuan Ni Dhochartaigh curates the artwork made by her mother, Deirdre Ni Argain, during and after pregnancy. Their mother-daughter collaboration is shown in and around ‘The Five’, a series of paintings by Natalie Pullen delving into feminine mysticism and the Occult.

Bringing their diverse practices together has started a conversation about their personal and professional relationships as artists and women. Through the programme of daily events they hope to open this conversation up and re-activate the work on show through viewer participation.

Join us at the opening reception, 6pm Thursday 27th September.
On Friday there will be a curators tour and talk at 1.15pm and 6.30pm. On Saturday 5pm, Natalie Pullen will host an automatic drawing workshop and on Sunday there will be a full day workshop led by art therapist Deirdre Ni Argain. Reading circles and live readings will happen throughout the week. Find more information and the full schedule through Facebook and on Instagram @inand_around. Please get in touch at 287gallery@gmail.com for any enquiries and booking.

Date/Time: 27/09/2018 – 04/10/2018

Rachel Maclean and Doireann O’Malley at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane

The Hugh Lane’s current exhibition Just be yourself! by Scottish artist Rachel Maclean will end on Sunday 16 September.

This exhibition presents the first solo exhibition in Ireland of Scottish artist Rachel Maclean, who creates fantastic visual narratives using green-screen technology. She parodies fairy tales, children’s television programmes, advertising, internet videos, and pop culture to examine identities, power dynamics and consumer desire. All of the characters are played by the artist, who transforms herself through extravagant costumes and make-up.

This exhibition includes Spite Your Face which Maclean exhibited at the 57th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia in 2017, representing Scotland+Venice 2017, curated by Alchemy Film and Arts in partnership with Talbot Rice Gallery and the University of Edinburgh. The film refers to the Italian folk-tale The Adventures of Pinocchio and offers a powerful critique of contemporary society and its underlying fears and desire. Spite Your Face is a tale across two worlds – with a bright, glittering and ordered upper world, and a warped, dirty, impoverished lower world – where the lure of wealth, power and adoration entices a destitute young boy into the shimmering riches of the kingdom above.

Furthermore the exhibition of Irish-Berlin based Doireann O’Malley: Prototypes is extended until the 30th of September, you can find more details here http://www.hughlane.ie/current/2029-doireann-omalley-prototypes

Prototypes is a multi-screen film installation by Berlin-based Irish artist Doireann O’Malley.
Exhibition extended to 30 September.

Doireann O’Malley’s film Prototypes brings together transgender studies, science fiction, bio politics, psychoanalysis, AI, and experimental music. She skilfully ties these to phantoms of modernist utopias, epitomized by the post-war architecture of Berlin, which serves as a dreamlike scenography for the main, protagonists’ ghostly actions.
