      August Sander and Michael Somoroff at Sirius Arts Centre
      April 16, 2014 - 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm

      Billy-MooreABSENCE OF SUBJECT
      In Partnership with ADMIRA, Feroz Gallery, Cork County Council and the Arts Council
      Opening: 16 April at 7pm – Artist Michael Somoroff will be present
      Sirius Arts Centre, Cobh, County Cork

      American Photographer, Michael Somoroff created this series as a visual conversation with the legendary German photographer, August Sander (1876 – 1964) and presents a unique conceptual homage from one artist to another. Somoroff selected images from Sander’s portrait series, Menschen des 20th Jahrhunderts ( People of the 20th Century) and, using digital technology, has removed the sitter. The pictures retain the subtle suggestions of human habitation, leaving mysteries, intensified by the display of empty environments.

      “The originality in this body of work is based on Somoroff’s keen sense of observation and interpretation. In this collection of photographs by Somoroff and Sander accompanied with three animated pieces, Absence of Subject lets you revisit August Sander’s work, allowing the audience to understand the richness of Sander’s intent. In each of August Sander’s pictures Michael Somoroff has erased the subject retaining only the background. The unprecedented digital revolution has brought the potential for manipulation into focus. Through the use of software Somoroff has taken out what we have always believed to be the “essential element” – the subject, the portrait. The backgrounds once a secondary fragment now become the primary motivator. They have now been translated into new fully conceived images that rightfully belong to the “post-modern” idiom.” – Curator Diane Edkins

      Carl Giffney at the Galway Arts Centre

      carl-giffneyLucite Fall
      17 April – 17 May | Opening: 17 April at 6pm
      Galway Arts Centre, 47 Lower Dominick St, Galway

      Lucite Fall is a new solo exhibition by Carl Giffney at Galway Arts Centre, Ireland.

      Social capital is a non-economic wealth that exists in the relations that people have with one and other. Lucite Fall examines the non-economic wealth that exists between people and geological ingredients. Coal Dust, Ground Barytes, Lithium Oxide and Concrete Powder play central roles in a fiction that sees them being collected, prepared and processed. The exhibition takes three parts: diorama, video and evidence. Lucite Fall presents a series of works that share a common interest in mining and labour. Film making techniques and physical diorama making are used to make fictions that illuminate the values we give to resources in flux.

      Lucite Fall uses performative activities like driving, mining and building to investigate the social values that revolve around geological resource and unsettles our relationship to material by using manufacture as a form of empirical research and also a tool for myth making.

      Lucite Fall is the moment when crystal and acrylic bind. It is also the name given to a remote outcrop overlooking the Opinnagau River. As a physical unification, Lucite Fall brings the hard and the plastic together. The firm is broken down and is surrounded by the malleable. This happens as cliffs slowly change shape, when jobs are lost, when paint is made. It is a process that sees the steadfast being chipped away at and its fragments gathered up and cast into a facsimile.

      However, there is a song to this brutal myth, a very slow rhythm that says “Yes. This is right”. A woman climbed up to Lucite Fall. Her hair was greasy, her fingers numb through wet gloves. She wore good boots and carried on her back a heavy bag of tools. As she climbed the cold rocks she scrutinized them, panting. Under her breath she murmured a steady song that told an old story. There is a song to this brutal myth, a very slow rhythm that says “Yes. This is right.”

      Harriet Myfanwy Nia Tahany at Teach Bán Art Gallery

      who-pulls-the-stringsWho Pulls The Strings?
      12 – 27 April | Opening: 12 April at 3pm
      Teach Bán, Art Gallery, Drumcliffe, Co. Sligo

      Teach Bán – Art Gallery will be presenting a new exhibition by Irish Pop Surrealist Harriet Myfanwy Nia Tahany, from April 12th – 27th 2014.

      This new body of work includes paintings, drawings and prints with a Jungian theme, exploring concepts derived from an esoteric interpretation of the classic children’s story Pinocchio. Jung believed that, to be psychologically healthy, one must strike a balance between the demands of society and what we really are, in being oblivious to one’s persona he believed that to be underestimating the importance of society, but to be unaware of one’s deep individuality, is to become society’s puppet.

      Who Pulls The Strings? is an exhibition based on this Jungian notion, an exploration of ideas and narratives set in a psychedelic dreamscape depiction of puppet characters in a metaphysical world.

      Harriet is well known for her ongoing exploration of themes inspired by ‘hermeneutics’, the art of literal translation, in attention to characters, events and symbols in a story’s underlying structure, often with a particular emphasis on fairytales and mythology. In this new body of work we see Harriet expand her artistic depictions of story analysis into the exploration of allegory, a device used widely in histories of all forms of the arts because of its immense power to illustrate complex ideas and concepts in ways that are easily accessible and tangible to an audience.

      Cliona Harmey at Pallas Project/Studios

      cliona-harmey-pallasTroposphere
      17 April – 3 May | Preview: 17 April at 6pm
      Pallas Project/Studios, 115-117 The Coombe, Dublin 8
      Gallery hours: 12–6pm, Thursday–Saturday until 3rd May (not open Good Friday)

      Referring to the lowest atmospheric layer and literally meaning “sphere of change”, the troposphere is the site of weather, turbulence and atmospheric transformation. Inspired by this mutability Troposphere is an exhibition of systems-based sculptural works that are concerned with spatial, broadcast and environmental phenomena (flight data, light, atmospheric pressure). The works exist at the intersection of sculpture, object hacking, diy/enthusiast electronics and live transmission. They look at inscription processes which combine natural and man-made systems. The main projection in the exhibition uses live-transmission information received from passing planes—combined with images of the sky—as a form of live electronic writing, updated each time another plane enters the range of the receiver. Other works take the form of simple material hacks where systems and objects are combined and reconfigured.

      Cliona Harmey has been active as an artist since the mid ‘90s after completing a BA Sculpture at NCAD. In 1999—2000 she undertook a one-year residency at the now defunct Arthouse Multimedia Centre in Dublin, which was one of the first worldwide dedicated digital media spaces for artists. This started her on a process of working primarily with digital media, creating a series of video installations and a web projects. The work
