In the making: High Heart

Karolina Adamczak, Ciara Campbell, Rebecca Campbell, Lee Campbell Perrie, Nicola Chambers, Elle Connor, Lauren Conway, Milo Cummins, Kaylem Davis, Claire Donohoe, William Doyle, Séamus Duffy, Rhiannon Elliott, Jane Ellis, Maureen Fitzpatrick, Pat Fitzsimons, Grace Hanley, Sarah Hanly, Steffi Kelly, Patryk Kurkowski, Danny Lalor Fitzpatrick, Jessica Leonard, Sophie Luck, Henry Malone, Mollie McCullough, Saoirse Melia, Aoife Murphy, Aoibheann Ni Ealai, Ell O’Farrell, Diana Popa, Aoife Ruth, Matthew Shiell, Rebecca Warren, Katie Whelan, Stevie Wilson, Izabela Wojewoda

High Heart presents new work by IADT Degree year Art students, gathered at a specific moment in time. Like all previous iterations of In the making, High Heart is oriented toward the future. The works in this exhibition have come to life in many different places – studios, bedrooms, laptops, back gardens, sheds and kitchens. These things (like their makers) are dispersed and separated in space. But in High Heart they cohere temporarily into a living entity animated by a shared curiosity about the world, and a commitment to the process of making art.

The exhibition includes works realised in a range of media, exploring themes such as new forms of intimacy in public and private space; tensions between fabricated and organic structures; traditions surrounding death and funerals; mechanisms for the control of nature; representations of the human body; and the constant demand for emotional labour in the customer service industry.

Friday, 19th February 2021, 12pm - 13pm

Register here

Devised by IADT students, two online gatherings will take place to accompany their online exhibtion High Heart. The first of these welcomes Jesse Jones, who will respond to IADT student questions about sustaining art practice beyond college

___________________

Jesse Jones’ practice is multi-platform, working in film installation, performance and sculpture. Her recent work proposes a re-imagining of the relationship between the Law and the body through speculative feminism. Using a form of expanded cinema she explores magical counter-narratives to the State drawn from suppressed archetypes and myth. She represented Ireland at the Venice Biennale 2017 with the project " Tremble Tremble" who's title is inspired by the 1970s Italian wages for housework movement, during which women chanted “Tremate, tremate, le streghe sono tornate! (Tremble, tremble, the witches have returned!)”.

Recent solo exhibitions include a solo presentation at Guggenheim Bilbao and a five year commission for kunsthalle Gent. Up coming solo exhibitions include Samstag Gallery Adelaide in 2021. Her teaching practice is primarily based on Sherkin Island Cork where she works on the BA in visual arts program (BAVA)

Radio Joinery—Panel Talk with NCAD Art in the Contemporary World

Monday 18th January, 1pm via Zoom
Register here

A panel talk presented by ACW together with Pallas Projects looking at the 3-day event 'Radio Joinery', within the history, programming context of The Joinery DIY space, with panellists Miranda Driscoll and Marysia Wieckiewicz-Carroll

Presented as part of the online exhibition Periodical Review X 2011—2020 ~ 20 works x 20 selectors chosen from the last 10 years

Radio Joinery took place live over three nights, Thursday 22nd to Saturday 24th November 2012, under the banner of Sound +/- Vision, it included contributions from Isabel Nolan and Bea McMahon, Beautiful Unit, Neil Watkins, Donal Dineen, Adrian Duncan and took place alongside an exhibition by (then recent) MA ACW student Laura Smith entitled “The Alternative Is …’’. The event was recently selected by Paper Visual Art for the exhibition Periodical Review X, for which selectors were invited to choose an artist, artwork or project to represent and revisit aspects of contemporary Irish art culture over the past ten years.

There is a whole generation of artists and musicians for whom The Joinery was a unique and formative space, both in terms of their practice and as a community. Yet a common problem for artist-run and self-organised spaces is that in the rush to make these projects happen, there is little opportunity for the luxury of reflection. In the case of Radio Joinery, only scant recorded material or documentation of this live event remains, instead its presence and value is represented in the memory and practices of those who organised, took part, or witnessed it.

"The Joinery, founded by Miranda Driscoll and Feargal Ward in 2007 and closed in 2014, was a not-for-profit, DIY space located in Stoneybatter, Dublin 7. It was a valuable, multidisciplinary venue for both emerging and professional artists that existed at a time when people had very little money but were trying to make things happen anyway. Organised by Marysia Wieckiewicz-Carroll in collaboration with the Joinery, Radio Joinery was an exciting live event that took place over three nights in 2012 and was also broadcast online. Like the many events that took place there, Radio Joinery brought people working in many different disciplines – music, theatre, film, writing, and art – and the local community together. There is no extensive archive for this project, but what remains are clips of video, lists of performances, snaps of activity, and rich shreds of memory." – extract from a text by Paper Visual Art for Periodical Review X

See link for more info, video clip, and full Radio Joinery programme details

Periodical Review is an annual survey of contemporary art from around Ireland. The tenth in the series takes place largely online, with a selection of work installed 'in real life' in the gallery. For this milestone 10th iteration of the long-running curatorial project Pallas Projects asked 20 selectors from around the country to each choose a work from the last decade. Together these provide a multi-subjective survey of art made over a 10-year period of epoch-defining social transformation. In addition for this special, and much changed, iteration of Periodical Review, PP/S commissioned essays by James Merrigan and Chris Hayes which are available alongside the online exhibition.
