Visual artist Andrew Duggan's project,
P R O C L A M A T I O N, showcases new lens-based and moving-image works by leading figures in Irish visual art, dance, and performance, engaging with the Centenary of the 1916 Rising.

The Proclamation of the Irish Republic read outside the Dublin General Post Office at the time of the 1916 Easter Rising has become iconic in the history of the Irish state. The new works offer contemporary artistic responses to notions of place, language, citizenship, and identity to which the 1916 proclamation may seem to lay claim.

Current Exhibition:
A thing is a thing is a thing is something else
by Jazmín Chiodi & Alex Iseli
Now on Display
May 16 – 29

In May 2016, Iseli-Chiodi Dance Company created the video work “A thing is a thing is a thing is something else.”

A woman builds a barricade in the Irish countryside. A stop motion video underlines the repetitive action of handling all the objects constituting a barricade. The piece is a slightly absurd representation of our attempts to keep control or move forward, often ending up in building barricades that are internal as much as they are external. A barricade in the landscape separates the past from the future. The barricade is seen as the turning point of action, but also the place of status quo where momentum is stopped by the attempt of both sides to move the line.

 



Andrew Duggan is an Irish artist whose video works, installations and curatorial projects explore the complex relationships between self, memory and place. Together with photographer Siobhán Dempsey they create arresting film works finding new connections between constructed or imagined spaces and trace histories.


Based in Ireland, Jazmin Chiodi and Alexandre Iseli are co-founders and directors of Iseli-Chiodi Dance Company, dedicated to contemporary dance creation and collaboration with other artists. They are also founders and directors of the international festival Tipperary Dance Platform."


Olwen Fouéré is an actor, director and creative artist. In collaboration with the film maker Kevin Abosch, she will present Cassandra: fragments of a playscript written by Anne Enright and filmed in the corridors of IMMA Earlsfort Terrace during the presentation of Cassandra's Necklace by Alice Maher in 2012.


Anthony Haughey is an artist and a lecturer in the Dublin Institute of Technology. Recent exhibitions include, Uncovering History, Kuunsthaus Graz, Excavation, Limerick City Gallery and Making History, Colombo Art Biennale. Throughout 2016 he will produce a series of artist and curatorial projects exploring the nation state and contemporary modes of citizenship.


Frances Hegarty (Ireland) and Andrew Stones (UK) have worked collaboratively since presenting the multi-site neon work "For Dublin" in 1998. Their video work for PROCLAMATION is drawn from an ongoing project that explores the significance and status, today, of a plot of family land in County Donegal.


Nigel Rolfe is recognized as a seminal figure in performance art, in its history and among current world practitioners.


John Scott is a Dublin choreographer and founder of Irish Modern Dance Theatre, with the aim of creating, commissioning and expanding dance experience in Ireland.
