Ella de Búrca: GOBO

6 Feb 2015 - 14 Mar 2015

The trail of Roger Casement, hero, traitor, martyr, pervert; (who he is is who he is to you) led de Búrca to Iquitos, Peru where Casement’s humanitarian work had ended the savage reign of the Ango-Peruvian Rubber company. After decades of widespread rape, torture and usury at the hands of unchecked capitalism, the indigenous culture had been all but erased. A century later, globalized capitalism has wreaked similar decay upon the monuments that those rubber barons built to themselves.

Phoenix Rising: Art and Civic Imagination

7 Nov 2014 - 29 Mar 2015

This exhibition and related events explore the current place of civic ideals in urban life and contemporary art practice. It references Dublin’s 1914 Civic Exhibition which was inspired by the work of Scottish biologist, sociologist and planner Patrick Geddes and which attempted to re-imagine Dublin as “the phoenix of cities” during a period of economic, social and political strife. The exhibition showcases contemporary artists’ responses to the urban environment using different strategies to understand and represent the city. It includes work by Stephen Brandes, Mark Clare, Cliona Harmey, Vagabond Reviews, Stéphanie Nava and Mary-Ruth Walsh.

Eva Koťátková and Dominik Lang: Wasteland

13 Feb 2015 - 21 Mar 2015

Wasteland will transform the gallery into a hypothetical place, an absurd playground overflowing with salvaged objects, postal packages, sculptures and debris. Nestled amidst its poetic surrounds the story of the artists’ attempts to dismantle and relocate a public park to a new location also unfolds. This exhibition explores the institutional rules and regulations that pervade our lives, and what happens when things slip through the cracks. Wasteland marks the first collaboration between Czech artists Eva Koťátková and Dominik Lang.
