Exhibitions

FAULT BOUND BODIES

Dates: 10 Feb - 08 Apr

Free admission Mon – Sat from 11am

Fault Bound Bodies is an interspecies time space love story set across various real and imagined sites of geothermal industry and volcanic activity.

Focusing on the physical manifestation of the earth’s internal heat and employing narratives of love, motivation and popular song, the exhibition navigates these material and emotional energies through video, 3D animation and sound installation.

The story evolves from the perspective of a geothermal site which awakes in a future moment to find that it has been ‘set to work’ for the generation of geothermal energy.

Stranded on a ridge berthed between two crusts, the site longs for a now extinct volcano estranged by the movements of tectonic plates.

Throughout the work this site performs the role of a single but collective voice, revealing the experiences of fellow mutants of heat in the face of heated forces and security-seeking crust dwellers that shape their destiny.

As we look to our future in an uncertain world, which is leaning towards populism, tokenism, and right wing conservative politics, we want to engage in a conversation about contemporary Ireland and the arts. We want to peel back the skin to see how artists are faring and examine the ways in which our arts community can reflect, mediate, challenge and shape our collective fate. Where does our future lie? As part…

Emma Wolf Haugh Research Project: Domestic Optimism - A queer, working class, post-colonial critique of architectural modernism

Upcoming Artist Talk event from Emma Wolf Haugh around her ongoing research will be presented later this year. Date and Location TBC. This event will present the artists research towards new work from Haugh in 2020  Domestic Optimism begins with the work and continually expanding legacy of the Irish-born, self-taught, modernist architect and designer, Eileen Gray. A considerable amount of attention has been given to Gray’s work in recent years but, more often than not, the queerness inherent in her life and design is sidelined or ignored. I am interested in what comes to bear on the construction of legacy and what…
