‘The Inexquisite Corpse’, ACW Publication now available at The Library Project

A novella written collectively by Nathan Cahill, Jack Cole, Padraig Cunningham, Dorothy Hunter, Valerie Joyce, Ronny Koren, Stephen Lau, Roisin McVeigh, Sara Muthi, Sadbh O’Brien, and Hannah Tiernan is now available for purchase at The Library Project, 4 Temple Bar, Dublin 2.

The Inexquisite Corpse

There is a cold blue light in the sky. A train trundles southbound through rural terrain. It has been raining, transforming the view from the windows into a blur of green and grey. Raindrops make tracks through the dirt on the train’s neglected car. The atmosphere amongst the passengers is subdued. It’s as if they know the cargo on board and sense unrest…

The Inexquisite Corpse is a speculative thriller set in the dystopic future of post-Brexit Dublin. Trains carry bodies living and dead, wakes are held in pubs, detectives quote Kristeva, and money talks if only to lament low self-worth. Amidst the chaos, a corpse becomes aware of its post mortem existence. Perspectives shift. Bodies have been altered…

I’m not heading to the necropolis,
I’m just a necro heading to a polis.

Unlike the methodology of “exquisite corpse” where each collaborator consecutively adds to a text in sequence, this novella has been continuously and collectively reworked and reedited by the authors. The Inexquisite Corpse is a gauchely assembled, rickety, interruptive, conflictual account, where no rule prevails and no voice dominates.

Young, single and ready to navigate through complex issues regarding temporality and time

ACW student Sara Muthi responds to PLATFORM 2018, an exhibition and a series of associated events showcasing the work of emerging and early career artists who will use the Gallery as a playful, experimental and creative space. Using a wide range of visual media as well as sound, music, dance and food, PLATFORM provides an opportunity for the public to engage with artists, creatives and curators as they animate their ideas and practices.

“PLATFORM creates ample opportunities for emerging artists to exhibit, grow and consider their practice in light of their peers. Spaces for fresh creative freedom, in which things may be tried and tested in a critical context such as this are few and far between.”

BREATH (taking), a review of Nigel Rolfe’s group performance at the Green on Red Gallery by Sara Muthi

Bringing together a group of Nigel Rolfe’s top performing students from the Royal College of Art, London, BREATHING IN, BREATHING OUT takes place at the center of Rolfe’s 8th Solo show at the Green on Red Gallery, Dublin. Current ACW student Sara Muthi responds to the dynamic and materials used in her text BREATH (taking).

” A task not easy to achieve, BREATHING OUT BREATHING IN consisted of actions that don’t merely disappear but have real-world complex manifestations both in the gallery and out. The intensity felt throughout the course of this performance had kept my cough at bay as my attention was locked on the subtle and intentional gestures of each performance. ”

“There’s art that challenges you, and art that’s simply not for you”

ACW student Sara Muthi and writer for in:Action, an Irish Live art review platform, shares her latest response to Martin O’Brien’s performance at the Dublin Live Art Festival.

“…for most of us, art is not life or death. If you feel challenged by the work of an artist, make it your mission to learn more, be uncomfortable and you will gain so much from it. However, if you simply can’t stomach a work, maybe it’s not for you. At the end of the day, art is just art. There’s art that challenges you and art that’s simply not for you.”

Fabian Marti: FM


Fabian Marti: FM

Edition Patrick Frey is realeasing a new publication featuring the work of Swiss artist Fabian Marti with text by Irish philosopher & ACW contributor Paul J. Ennis.

This book is a trip. A trip through the visual realms of the artist Fabian Marti. Its prevailing cosmic black is subtly accentuated now and then by color: the milky white of mountain crystal, the raw dun of rock caves, the sandy beige of pillared Greek ruins. Or color as a by-product of alchemistic photogram processes. The shapes are original and familiar. Marti reinterprets symbols and reviews the cultural history of modernity and beyond. A journey through time as past and present blend in simultaneity. Digital and analog united. Scanned objects revealed: mushrooms, stones, toast, a pair of hands. And modified pictures from outside sources.

This is a book about altered states of consciousness triggered by substances and shapes. It’s about spiritual views and mystical experiences – and their negation. Not somber, not sad, not heavy, but contemplative and awake. An oscillation between yes and no.
