THE 8th ANNUAL KING PING PONG TOURNAMENT 2019

Friday 29th November / 7 'til VICTORY

Davy Moor & Pete Prendergast, in conjunction with PP/S, would love you to join us at the Pallas Gallery in the Coombe for our eighth inter-(visual art)-organisational tourney.

PLEASE RSVP >>daveymoor@gmail.com<< IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN PLAYING THIS YEAR OR KNOW SOMEONE WHO MIGHT...

It has been a year since new Paraic Leahy held the KPP trophy-bat aloft for the RHA, and time has come again to swig a beer with one hand while swatting a small white ball away with the other.

Anyone in the visual arts can play - office staff, members, techs, artists, board members, curators, lecturers, registrars, writers, interns, under the banner of an organisation, gallery, studio, college ... you get the picture.

We will also have a brand new KRAZY TABLE, this year, made by artist Daire McEvoy!

Irish Art's most coveted prize?  Well, of course. 

The Irish Art calendar's most jocular event?  You bet it is.

To coincide with her current solo exhibition at Pallas Projects/Studios ‘Declaration of the State Metropolis at Tara’ the artist Doireann Ni Ghrioghair shares her research on this exciting project.

The artist will discuss the article “Maoidheamh ar Árd-Chathair Stáit i dTeamhair” (Declaration for the State Metropolis at Tara) that inspired the work in the exhibition, as well as her research around Ailtirí na hAiséirghe (Architects of the Resurrection) and the architect, Daithí Hanly. She will also discuss her ideas in designing the sculptures, the architecture that influenced the designs, as well giving an insight into her process of digital 3D modelling and 3D printing.

Refreshments will be provided in the gallery space & visitors can enjoy a late view of the exhibition.

“There is many a country that has decided to establish a capital city with grandeur, efficiency and unity of the central government. In ancient times, urban planning was pursued in Egypt, in a large number of cities in China, Greece and Rome. There are examples of this today in Washington, New Delhi, Ankara and Canberra.There is no need to tell why the location of Tara is suitable from the historical point of view. But there are many other recommendations, which make it suitable as the Capital of Ireland. It is in the centre of the country (25 miles from Dublin; Belfast, 78; Derry, 127; Limerick, 99; Tralee, 159; Sligo, 106; Athlone, 72; Kilkenny, 94). It would satisfy the people of Belfast, who have a congenital hatred of Dublin, as a city of conflict and not only as a capital: it would break the alien influence of the people of Rathmines, Rathgar and the Royal Irish Academy on the persons of the Government of Ireland. Therefore, it would not be too far “at all”, from Dublin, and it would not oblige all the officials of the Government to be brought from Dublin nor from Belfast. The new city of Tara would not be removed from rural life, as is Dublin, and it would be a clear sign that we have left for good, the old-bad-days that we have had during the seven centuries, during which we were under the heavy yoke of England; may it be our intention, sincerely, to build a new epoch in Ireland for ourselves.”

—Daithí Ó hÁinle, extract from “Maoidheamh ar Árd-Cathair Stáit I dTeamhair”, Áiserighe 1942 - published by Ailtirí na hAiséirghe, translated by Paddy Greer

Doireann Ní Ghrioghair (b. 1983) graduated with an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art & Design, London in 2010. Her sculptural work takes its lead from monumental architecture in contemporary European cities. Through examining the materiality, form and aesthetics of these buildings, her work aims to probe at the psychological and physical consequences of this architecture for the individual in the city. She completed a long-term residency at Fire Station Artist Studios, Dublin from 2014-17. Solo exhibitions of her work have been held at MART Gallery, Dublin (2017); Platform Arts, Belfast (2017) & Eight Gallery, Dublin (2016) Notable group exhibitions include Urgencies, CCA Derry-Londerry (2019); Klimaweschel – MKH Biennale, Germany (2018); Fatal Attraction, Thames Side Gallery, London (2018); We Only Want The Earth, Adobe Backroom Gallery, San Francisco (2018); TULCA -The Headless City curated by Daniel Jewesbury (2016); After the Future, Eva Biennial (2012) curated by Annie Fletcher, Limerick. She was selected four times to exhibit at Creekside Open, APT Gallery, London (2017,2015, 2013 & 2011 curated by Alison Wilding, Lisa Milroy, Ceri Hand and Phyllida Barlow respectively). She recently completed a residency in the School of Architecture & Engineering, UCD as part of Parity Studios.

He has published three books of poetry, most recently this is no longer entertainment (Manchester: Dostoyevsky Wannabe, 2019), as well as several pamphlets, artists' books and other poetry objects. His second book The Architecture of Chance (Dublin: Wurm Press, 2015) was a poetry book of the year for RTÉ Arena and 3:AM Magazine. One of Poetry Ireland's 'Rising Generation' poets, he has presented his work widely across media and borders, and received awards and commissions from several institutions including the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA), StAnza Festival (Scotland), European Poetry Festival, Culture Ireland, and Maynooth University. He is the poetry editor at gorse journal and associated imprint Gorse Editions.
