Exclusive previews and one-off experiences from just €5 a month
Following the success of its Dublin run at Project Arts Centre, Wasteland will embark on a national tour in 2015.
Wasteland will transform a number of galleries around the country into hypothetical places, absurd playgrounds overflowing with salvaged objects, postal packages, sculptures and debris. Nestled amidst its poetic surrounds the story of the artists’ attempts to dismantle and relocate a public park to a new location also unfolds.
This exhibition explores the institutional rules and regulations that pervade our lives, and what happens when things slip through the cracks.
Wasteland marks the first collaboration between Czech artists Eva Koťátková and Dominik Lang, originally commissioned by Project Arts Centre and curated by Tessa Giblin. This nationwide tour is co-ordinated by David Upton.

This month critically acclaimed choreographer Philip Connaughton brings his beautiful, sparkling, laugh-out-loud meditation on the fear of forgetting and of being forgotten to Cork and Dublin venues. Mamafesta Memorialising, which enjoyed its successful international premiere in France last year, is woven from inspirations including musical theatre, Bruce Forsythe’s Generation Game and most importantly, Philip’s mum Madeleine, who has senile dementia. Philip made his last piece, Assisted Solo, about her. But it wasn’t enough. He still has more to do and more to say. He’s worried that what’s happening to her will happen to him. His latest testimony to an ever-evolving,…Read More
