Ella Bertilsson & Ulla Juske: Deconstruct to Reconstruct

Time: 1pm Saturday 29th September

The exhibition space will be transformed into a performance space from 12pm, therefore the artists' exhibition 'Beyond the Sandy Suburbs' will be open 2-6pm on the day.

Duration: approx. 20 minutes

Venue: Pallas Projects/Studios

Free event - All welcome - Booking advised via Eventbrite

Deconstruct to Reconstruct is a live performance by the artist duo in collaboration with Celina Muldoon. As a closing event for the duo's current exhibition at Pallas Projects/Studios, Beyond the Sandy Suburbs, this performance is a direct response to the installation. The artists are using materials that they've incorporated in the exhibition.

Beyond the Sandy Suburbs is the final in a trilogy of works produced by Ella Bertilsson (SWE/IE) and Ulla Juske (EST/IE) and based upon research conducted during residencies in Draíocht (Blanchardstown) and the Nordic Artists’ Centre (Norway). The series, which began with 11.9km Northwest of the City Centre (Hobusepea Gallery, Tallinn) and continued with Carriers of Memories (Draíocht) has dealt so far with themes of domesticity, paranoia and displacement. The Sandy Suburbs continues along those lines of thought and begins to invoke power dynamics and the urban environment more directly.

Ella Bertilsson (SWE/IRE) and Ulla Juske (EST/IRE) moved, separately, to Dublin during the years of the Celtic Tiger, and ultimately met in 2013, during their time as MFA students in the National College of Art and Design, Dublin. Since then the artist-duo (SWE/IRE & EST/IRE) have been using conversation as the generative ground for their multidisciplinary work; sourcing inspiration from films, music, news items, oral histories and interviews; and producing work that uses storytelling, symbolism, staging and sound to produce a mood of absurdity, disquiet and unresolved suspense. This atmosphere is fuelled by the tension in the telling of the narratives, which can indicate something unsaid, be it by verbal feint, communicative noise, distraction or omission. Thematically, the work matches questions of domesticity with questions of memory and personal history, moving to remind the viewer of the associated essences, realities, and dissonances.

On-going exhibition Carrier of Memories, Dráiocht Gallery, Blanchardstown. Recent solo exhibitions include: 11.9 km Northwest of the City Centre (Hobusepea Gallery, Tallinn, 2018), The Waiting Room (Artbox, Dublin, 2017), Uncertain Matter (Outvert Art Space & ArtsIceland, Isafjordur, 2017), Uncertain Matter (Deiglan Gallery, Akureyri, 2017), Uncertain Matter (Nordic House, Reykjavik, 2016), Time is what happens when nothing else does (Office of Public Works in association with the Royal Hibernian Academy, Dublin, 2015). Recent public events: Museum of an Unknown Person, (Circe Pavilion, Dublin, 2017), Uncertain Matter Audio-walk (Nordic House, Reykjavik, 2017).

07/09/18—07/09/18

Artist Talk—Sibyl Montague & Rachael Gilbourne

Time: 6.30pm Friday 7th September

Venue: Pallas Projects/Studios

No booking required - free event - all welcome

Join the artist Sibyl Montague who has invited curator Rachael Gilbourne for a conversation in the gallery as they discuss Montague's exhibition Saplings, the ningth exhibition of our Artist-Initiated Projects programme.

Saplings presents a site-specific installation of new sculptural works by Sibyl Montague. It features a series of sculptural objects or 'tools' that explore our relationship to material as physical but flawed representations of inner experience. Based on a speakeasy that Montague's grandfather worked and drank at in New York in the 1920's, the installation takes the physical bar as form and support for the work.

Artist Talk—Bren Smyth & Róisín Bohan

Time: 1pm Saturday 28th July

Venue: Pallas Projects/Studios

No booking required - free event - all welcome

Join artist Bren smyth in conversation with curator Róisín Bohan as they discuss Smyth's exhibition Substance Of Things currently featured at Pallas Projects/Studios.

Smyth in her work explores both the subject of painting and the painting as an object. Frantic splashes of gesso, ink spills, rubbings, and line drawings cover the page; foundation sketches are quickly obliterated by masses of gesso, which then hide beneath further layers of drawing, a process repeated by Smyth which allows for both accident and discovery.
