5th Wheel Element at Project Space at PP/S

Pallas Projects/Studios, Dublin present 5th Wheel Element Project by Kathy O’Leary

5th Wheel Element project involves creating dialogue through art, documentation and performance around the politics of participation. Installations that evoke and alternate the line between the real and the fictional are created. To date Kathy’s practice has been to use art as an experimental research tool to configure a language that speaks of inclusion. Her concern and focus for this project is to develop and examine issues that relate to accessing urban landscapes which involve creating new aesthetics and concepts for her visual theoritical practice through capturing moments of light, satire and motion.
“5th Wheel Element” has become an ethereal, collaborative, experimental and a subversive experience to challenge ‘outside the box’. To examine what is perceived as the norm and the allusion that this creates.
“Clogging cogs”, is the title of an audio and visual experience wall piece that is amongst other interpretations as a part of the show.
By analyzing situations of intervention, “5th Wheel Element Project” attempts to question notions of what an ‘Institution’ is, how does it become such and the benefits of participation as a learning cognitive methodology.

“5th Wheel Element Project” is elaborated through a series of events including a Fire Drill Intervention at NCAD that took place in April ’13, an exhibition and artist in-conversation with Marianne O’ Kane Boal, Art and Architecture Critic and Curator.

Artist in-Conversation with Marianne O’ Kane Boal at 12pm on Friday 2nd.
