Panel discussion: The Politics & Ethics of Relational Aesthetics

Kerry Guinan, Ann Ryan and Dr. Kieran Cashell

 

Time: 6pm Thursday 26th September 2019

Venue: Pallas Projects/Studios

Admission free - All welcome - No booking required

——

To coincide with her solo exhibition Our Celestial Sphere, the artist Kerry Guinan will take part in a panel discussion with artist Ann Ryan, chaired by Dr. Kieran Cashell, to discuss their divergent approaches to relational art.

——

For her exhibition Our Celestial Sphere, visual artist Kerry Guinan presents the art style ‘relational socialist realism,’ which has been a year in development with the support of the Arts Council of Ireland’s Next Generation Award 2018. Guinan is proposing relational socialist realism as a contemporary style that recognizes the economics of social relations, the socialist potential of these relations, and the manner in which capitalism obscures this potential from view. Cues from orthodox socialist realism and contemporary relational aesthetics are merged, perhaps contentiously, to offer an ideological art strategy for the 21st century. The resulting three-part series of ambitious works engages workers from across the world in an incriminating critique of globalized capitalism and the uncertain role of contemporary art within it.

Hyper- is a new body of work by 1iing heaney. Using a range of mediums from 3D animation to riso print, this exhibition considers digital space as an extension of the geological world. Following a residency in the Burren College of Art, this work has been emerging since 2016. Further development continued during Lay of the Land’s RES 1 residency in Lauragh, Co. Kerry in March of this year. These remote landscapes have served as a vital backdrop for exploring the interface between the Digital Age and natural world.

1iing heaney is a visual artist experimenting with 3D modeling and animation from Bray, Co. Wicklow. She received her BA in Fine Art Media & Visual Culture from NCAD in 2015. With a focus on the material nature of digital life, her work explores geological timescales in parallel to human technological intervention. 1iing uses print, drawing, sculpture, simulations and 3D scans to consider the future of nature. 1iing has taken part in both group and solo exhibitions. Selected shows include solo exhibitions, Terrestrial/Satellite in 126 Artist-Run Gallery, Galway (2018) & World Geometry in MART, Dublin (2016). Group shows include Geological Cake, Burren College of Art Gallery, Co. Clare (2017), HIVE, Steambox Gallery, Dublin 8 (2017), Dancing Girl Emoji, Delta Sorority, Online (2016) and The stretch is better than the case, Upominki, Rotterdam (2015). 1iing has received support from the Emerging Irish Artist Residency Award, Burren College of Art (2016) & Wicklow County Arts Office (2016 & 2019).

The University Times, At Pallas Projects, an Art Exhibition Full of Surprises.

Kevin Gaynor - Jamie Gilroy Barrett - Niall Linton - Frank Prendergast

Opening reception: 6–8pm Tuesday 30th July 2019
Exhibition continues: Wednesday 1st August – Saturday 3rd August 2019
Gallery hours: 12–6pm 

SHIFTINGS is a group exhibition that explores the confrontation between ideologies both past and present, and shows new work by Artists; Kevin Gaynor, Jamie Gilroy Barrett, Niall Linton, and Frank Prendergast.

This work documents the relationship between established social, and cultural systems in conflict with establishing structures that challenge their power. Through sculpture, installation, sound and video the exhibition reflects the tensions surrounding national, technological and cultural shifts in society today.
These four individual practices engage with cultural shifts, and systematic structures of power.

By bringing together these four pieces of work, a portrait is formed of the current geo-political shiftings taking place on the surface of this island, and the landmasses around it.
