Pallas Projects/Studios are pleased to present inter_site–Error: /undefined, the penultimate exhibition of our 2023 Artist-Initiated Projects programme.
Error: /undefined interrogates interlocking issues of our current conjuncture. Environmental and corporeal breakdown are examined against systems of never ending pressure and progress under capitalism.
Error: /undefined activates a sense of presence and absence, destruction and construction, body and machine, ambiguity and the concrete.
Error: /undefined investigates systems of power and the altering effects of external infrastructure and systems.
Artist talk with inter_site
Saturday, 21st October 12-1pm
Artist, educator, and curator Pádraig Spillane will moderate a discussion between members of the artist collective inter_site, discussing their latest Exhibition; Error: /undefined.
The artists will also discuss the publication accompanying the exhibition, designed by collective member Deirdre Breen, which catalogues six Cork-based site-responsive exhibitions by inter_site from 2021-2023.
inter_site is a Cork based artist collective established by Pádraic Barrett, Deirdre Breen, Aoife Claffey and Kate McElroy. They graduated together from the MA in Art and Process, Crawford College of Art and Design, MTU, 2021. Since then they have created six site-responsive exhibitions in Cork.
inter_site create interventions and exhibitions, utilising unique venues and display mechanisms responding to the precarious and ever shifting nature of our current reality. Their work responds to the current environmental, political and social climate. Each artist employs a multi-disciplinary approach responding to the specific sites they encounter, enhancing the viewer's experience of place with an emphasis on spatial and sensory effects. The work speculates on alternative and imaginative spaces that present to the viewer embodied encounters and altered viewpoints. They aim to embed art into the fabric of the everyday, using art as a tool to probe and question current societal systems and structures of power. They are interested in peripheral and non-traditional art spaces which can open up new ways of considering the surrounding environment and re-imagine our present moment.
Please note this exhibition features moving reflective light and a loud soundtrack.
