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.

After the success of Pluck project’s debut presentation from the artist Stephanie Hough, this opportunity to work with some of the most respected figures in the Irish art world marks an exciting progression for these emergent curators.

Territory consists of a series of new paintings in oil and watercolour. Martin Gale’s work responds to the contemporary Irish landscape, offering an often dark commentary on rural Ireland in which ordinary – even familiar – landscapes become arresting and uneasy. The figures peopling Gale’s landscapes often seem absorbed in something unseen, prompting the viewer to continue the suspended narrative. His realist style is meticulously detailed in execution, with an edge often derived from the psychological tension that is implicit in much of his work.

The volume of air that inhabits the upper gallery of the CAG will be hung with some 4 – 5 high – tension cables onto which will be placed light responsive plastic. Welded into long sheets they will inhabit the space in advance of The Land of Zero. They will begin an atmosphere by themselves, simply a gesture in advance of the activity that will follow.

The conceit of The Land of Zero as a landscape allows us to identify a moment of stillness within the ‘amorphous stew’, (Flusser, 1999), which is the present, an artificial nothingness, a chosen moment within which one can examine new forces temporarily held at bay, through lecture, installation, and discussion. The Land of Zero is a radical school within a school, a hybrid of research within ‘showing’ (Monk, 1991), a two-day seminar set in a composite installation in process. It is a place of questioning and examination on a threshold between MA:AP of the Cork College of Art & Design, other practitioners, and the public realm.

Kerry and creator of transformative public artwork spanning 50 years.
