Opening reception: 6–8pm Thursday 5th October
Exhibition continues: Friday 6th– Saturday 21st October
Pallas Projects/Studios are pleased to present Inter_site–Error: /undefined, the seventh exhibition of our 2023 Artist-Initiated Projects programme.
Error: /Undefined investigates systems of power and the altering effects of
infrastructure and systems.
Error: /Undefined activates a sense of destruction and construction, virtual and
corporeal, ambiguity and the concrete.
Error: /Undefined evokes breathlessness and breakdown, it speaks of the
relinquished control to omnipresent external forces.
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.
Artist-Initiated Projects at Pallas Projects/Studios is an open-submission, annual gallery programme of 8 x 3-week exhibitions taking place from March-November 2023. This unique programme of funded, artist-initiated projects selected via open call is highly accessible to artists, with a focus on early career, emerging artists and recent graduates. Projects are supplemented with artists' talks, texts, workshops or performances, and gallery visits by colleges and local schools.
Pallas Projects/Studios is funded by The Arts Council
