Sarah Devereux cartwheels over, dances on, and kicks dust at the line separating Art & Life, and this sometimes induces fear and anxiety! Working in a wide range of disciplines including, drawing, sculpture, paint, performance and video, her work could be described as extreme honesty dressed up in glitter. Her sculptures and drawings are crude but intelligent, disturbing but endearing, ‘fabulous’ but anxious, and immediate but considered. Her performance work moves between traditional performance art, video art, interventions and cabaret. Her work is explicitly political, and often tackles themes of female body autonomy, lack of opportunities caused by the recession, boredom and fear, whilst remaining playful, absurd, and accessible.
Stephen Quinn in a Dublin-based theatre and performance maker who makes clown; music theatre; drag; burlesque, physical theatre, and alternative cabaret. His work is is characterised by both rigorous, aesthetic artistry and a passionate interrogation of the status quo. Recent credits have included co-writing/performing in “Overfired” at the Dublin Fringe and Outburst Queer Arts Festivals (winner of the Outburst Queer Fringe Award, 2018); performing in Zoe Ni Riordan’s award-winning “Recovery” at Projects Arts Centre, Dublin, 2016/17 and the Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris, 2017; and performing as a “dandy minion” in MacArthur Genius Taylor Mac’s “A 24-Decade History of Popular Music: The First Act” at the Barbican Theatre, London (LIFT, 2018).

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…Read More

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…Read More
