Irish Society of Stage and Screen Designers presents

Exhibitions

Design and Destroy, The Beauty of Ephemerality

Dates: 16 Jan - 26 Jan

Show Time: 11am-7pm (11am-2pm, 26 Jan)

Tickets: €Free Admission

A National Exhibit of Design for Performance

Opening: 16 January, 5.30pm

Featuring work from some of Ireland’s most prolific and creative designers, this exhibition aims to highlight the dramatic yet ephemeral nature of Design for Stage and Screen in Ireland.

The physicality of this discipline exists for a short time and then is no more. The curtain falls, the collaboration ends; all that remains is the memory of the experience in the minds of the spectator.

In seeking to explore this ephemerality, designers respond to the provocation of presenting process alongside outcome. The experience will expose bursts of inspiration; snatches of sound, flashes of colour, rustles of fabric.

An insight into the mind behind the design; ISSSD’s first national exhibit promises to be bold, provocative, fearless.

Exhibitors at Project arts Centre include: John Comiskey (Lighting & Set Designer), Sinéad Cuthbert (Costume Designer), Alan Farquharson (Production Designer), Maree Kearns (Set and Costume Designer), Ana Novacic (Production & Prop Designer), Joan O’Clery (Costume Designer), Francis O’Connor (Set and Costume Designer), Paul O’Mahony (Set Designer), Ciarán Ó’Melia (Set & Lighting Designer), Sarah Jane Shiels (Lighting Designer) and Kevin Smith (Lighting Designer).
