Brian Duggan: The Last Day Diary
23 Jan 2015 - 30 Mar 2015
The Last Day Diaryis a new short HD film inspired from a specific historical relic from the Johnson County War in 1882 Wyoming. The film’s initial location of privilage and safety in the grand eighteenth century entrance hall of Charlemont House, is in stark contrast to the narration’s guiding text from a hand written letter found on the body of Nathan D. Champion. Falsely accused by a wealthy Wyoming cattleman’s association, Champion was the first person murdered by a band of hit men hired by the cattlemen. The letter he had written during the day of the seige in his cabin is a poignant testament of a person in crisis and the last hours he spent surrounded. The film concludes in Kaycee, Wyoming, where the original ambush took place one hundred and thirty three years ago.

John Short: New Works
19 Mar 2015 - 18 Apr 2015
Short received a BA degree at the Edinburgh School of Art and an MA from the prestigious Royal College of Art in London and began his career as an illustrator where his work was in much demand from many diverse publications including Vogue, Harpers & Queen, The Irish Times, The Sunday Independent, The Guardian and The Sunday Times. Now based in Dalkey in south County Dublin, he divides his time solely between his teaching (John is a senior lecturer in Drawing & Image Making in the School of Art & Design in DIT) and his own painting. He is inspired by people, their activities and the way they behave – “It is fascinating’, he says, “to just sit and watch people, or, in fact, to watch people watching other people, and it’s that kind of observation that I bring to my painting”.

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.
