Memento Aldi, Danny Kelly at deAppendix

November 9, 2018 – 8:34 am |

Memento Aldi, Danny Kelly at deAppendix, 30 Ardagh Grove, Blackrock.

Run: 23rd Oct – 7th Dec 2018

Memento Aldi is an installation of Danny Kelly’s recent painting at DeAppendix. Kelly’s work elaborates a subjective sphere of heterogeneous features comprising tropes of painting culture and items of biographical significance. A protean topography traverses the work’s pictorial content, objective environmental and material properties, and interpreted public and personal cultures – intimations of chart music and domestic miscellanea. Dynamics of disintegration and consolidation alternate, suggesting an accidental crucible breeding ephemeral hybrids. A visceral, crudely drawn practice emerges – playing with cohesiveness, personal identity and public visuality – and is embraced as a pidgin chart music.

deAppendix is a cultural space co-located with a GP surgery and hosts a calendar of contemporary art exhibitions and artists talks. Through it’s programme deAppendix challenges how such spaces are activated and in so doing questions accepted norms for this genre of space. deAppendix is a project by Ciara McMahon whose art practice frequently examines the potential for hybridity between the disciplines of Art and Medicine.

Goethe Institut Irland
37 Merrion Square
Dublin 2

Wednesday
21st November
6PM

On the occasion of Liam Gillick’s exhibition A Depicted Horse is not a Critique of a Horse at the Kerlin Gallery (23rd November – 19th January) and his Denominator Platform 2018, specially commissioned for the Return Gallery at 37 Merrion Square in connection with Common Denominator: Art in the Contemporary World at the Goethe-Institut, a two-year programme that takes as its starting point Walter Gropius’s term, from which collective knowledges progress. Through exhibitions, events, seminars and more we will interrogate and inhabit what it means in our time to speak of political solidarity, civic standards, or even aesthetic values, and to consider the relation between common commitments and necessary possibilities of individual belief, expression and action.

All welcome. Please note space is limited. Arrive early to avoid disappointment.

Supported by the Goethe-Institut Irland, in collaboration with the National College of Art & Design. Courtesy the Kerlin Gallery.
