Efforts and Ideals: Prints of the First World War

24 Sep 2014 - 18 Jan 2015

In 1917 the British Ministry of Information commissioned several well-known British artists to produce a series of images on different aspects of the war effort. The aim was to encourage a war-weary public and raise support for the war effort. The images by various artists illustrate some of the changing attitudes at the time such as the role of women in the war, the industry of war and the casualties of war. The lithographs were divided into “Efforts” with nine artists producing six lithographs each on different aspects of the war effort, including Christopher Wynne Nevinson, William Rothenstein and Claude Shepperson.

Karl Burke is an artist and musician interested in exploring the poetics of space. Using simple material such as wood and box steel Burke creates schematic architectural environments that probe issues such a proportion, transparency and delineation. Burke’s sculptures, spare and elegant, often incorporate a single module that is presented in different aspects. There is an experimental, even, playful attitude in the work. His pieces partner the space in which they are shown to unlock a choreography of possibilities about interior space, both actual and metaphorical, and how its is constructed and encountered.

Experimental Film Society Screening

24 Nov 2014

The second of six bi-monthly Experimental Film Society (EFS) screenings, taking place at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios under the Studio 6 Open programme, highlights the reach and stylistic diversity of EFS’ international membership. Bahar Samadi’s haunting, gem-like videos make very personal use of found footage to evoke a mysterious sense of loss and memory. Jason Marsh’s Pitpony and Esperanza Collado’s The Illuminating Gas both explore the raw materiality of celluloid but with contrasting approaches to rhythm. An emphasis on hypnotic rhythm and a willingness to tackle darkly erotic material characterizes the two collaborative pieces in the programme, Dean Kavanagh & Rouzbeh Rashidi’s Homo Sapiens Project (183) and Vicky Langan & Maximilian Le Cain’s Desk 13. And the darkness continues into Hamid Shams Javi’s surreal nightmare vision of family life in contemporary Iran, The Hell With It.
