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). She also facilitates workshops using the 3D software Blender in Block-T, Dublin.

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.




Artist-Initiated Projects 2019 launched by Josepha Madigan, Minister Culture, Heritage & Gaeltacht

Date: Thursday 11th July 2019, 6–8pm

Venue: Pallas Projects/Studios
115–117 The Coombe, Dublin 8, Ireland

The launch will take place at the opening of the exhibition: Liliane Puthod—How Long After Best Before.

Pallas Projects/Studios are delighted to announce the official launch for our programme of Artist-Initiated Projects 2019 by Josepha Madigan, Minister for Culture, Heritage & the Gaeltacht. The series of 10 x 3-week exhibitions between March—November 2019 will present exhibitions of new work by a gifted lineup of emerging contemporary artists: Celina Muldoon, Aideen Farrell, Marie Farrington, Tadhg Ó Cuirrín, The Queeratorial curated by Aoife Banks, Liliane Puthod, 1iing Heaney, Kerry Guinan, Jonathan Mayhew and Doireann Ni Ghrioghair.

Artist-Initiated Projects aims to act as an incubator for early careers, and support artists' practices at crucial stages, providing a platform for artists to produce and exhibit challenging work across all art forms. The model of short-run exhibitions with a relatively short turnaround time of 3–6 months is an alternative to the normal institutional model, where the process of studio visit to exhibition can take several years. Shorter lead-in times allow the programme to be quick and responsive, reflect what artists are currently making, and encourage experimentation and risk-taking.

Artist-Initiated Projects at Pallas Projects/Studios is an open-submission, annual gallery programme of 10 x 3-week exhibitions taking place between March and November 2019. This unique programme of funded, artist-initiated projects selected via open call is highly accessible to artists, with a focus on early/mid-career, emerging artists and recent graduates. Projects are supplemented with artists' talks, texts, workshops or performances, and gallery visits by colleges and local schools.

"My experience [of the Artist-Initiated Projects] has been fantastic. It was the start of me as an artist really. Since I have exhibited in the Kevin Kavanagh gallery in a group show and was shortlisted for the Zurich Portrait Prize in the National Gallery. Also, I'm currently being filmed as part of an RTE documentary. None of which would have happened without Pallas Projects or certainly not in the timeline in which it has. I was really impressed by how simple and accessible the application was. Most open calls aren't really that 'open' but this one is and I think it's vital to young artists here."
– Salvatore of Lucan, AIP participant 2018.

Minister's statement

"The Arts Council funded Pallas Projects Artist-Initiated Projects is an important scheme, particularly for artists with fledgeling careers.

The arts provide challenges at all levels, demonstrating the variety of interpretation and imagination that exists. It demonstrates many different palettes, subject matter and styles of work. It compels us, the audience, to slow down, to stop and to take time to appreciate, to consider and to reflect.

This wonderful scheme, led by artists for artists, will provide us with a stunning display of diverse talent through the summer and autumn until November. I am certain that it will provide a springboard for the careers of these exhibiting artists, inspire others and demonstrate just why the arts are intrinsic to the very fabric of life in our capital city."

– Josepha Madigan
Minister for Culture, Heritage & the Gaeltacht


About us:

Pallas Projects/Studios is one of Ireland's longest running artist-run spaces, providing much needed studio and exhibition space over 22 years in Dublin's city centre. Artists are a key factor in cultivating rich and diverse culture that enhances social lived experience in the city and as such PP/S has long advocated for the importance of retaining artist-led spaces as an essential part of this cultural fabric. The organisation, which began on Foley Street in 1996, has traversed the city, utilising and injecting new life into disused spaces, and has since 2012 settled in the Coombe in Dublin 8, where it has become embedded in the community as a key visual art and cultural resource for the area. PP/S have established a local, nationwide and international reputation among artists and organisations, and a public profile through successful and critically engaged exhibitions, publishing, collaborations and partnerships, and education programmes for schools. Recent projects include the 4-year research project and publication 'Artist-Run Europe', published by Onomatopee, Eindhoven in 2016, and the annual 'Periodical Review' exhibition now in its ninth year.

Pallas Projects/Studios is funded by The Arts Council

Associated Events: Liliane Puthod—How Long After Best Before

Venue: Pallas Projects/Studios

Admission free - All welcome


To coincide with the solo exhibition of Liliane Puthod, How Long After Best Before, the artist will host two events in the PP/S Project Space.


Wednesday 17th July, 1–2pm: Public talk by Dr Jessica Smyth

This public lecture by Dr Jessica Smyth, recently awarded a research project named Passage Tomb People, will be looking into the architecture of passage tombs and will be exploring the wider social and economic background of where and how people lived and sustained themselves at that time. https://passagetombpeople.com/methods/

Dr. Jessica Smyth is a lecturer in the UCD School of Archaeology, has a long-standing interest in daily life in prehistory. Dr Smyth is currently Principal Investigator on 'Passage Tomb People' (IRC Laureate Consolidator Grant 2018-2022), investigating the social drivers of passage tomb construction in the 4th and 3rd millennia BC. Initially looking at settlement and domestic architecture in the Neolithic, she now uses both laboratory and library to explore early farming communities.



Friday 26th July, 6–9pm: Closing event with Polyglove and Santa Wrek
To close this exhibition, the public will be invited to take part in a closing event where the electronic music’s rhythms will recall the mechanics of fabrication, the repetition of gestures and yet the production of a specific social time seeking to reveal the relationship between body, time and artefacts.

PolyGlove are a Dublin based electronic duo comprising of Stephen Maguire and Niall Conroy. Pairing the best of their analog and digital equipment they cultivate their own distinct form of techno - with performances marrying their array of hardware synths with custom made psychedelic visuals.

Santa Wrek is a solo electronic music project that focuses on combining classic acid lines, industrial driven sampling and house inflected rhythms to create work that seeks to land somewhere between lighthearted matinee and late night horror. An atonal cacophony.
