Breath | Nigel Rolfe at Green On Red Gallery

14 September to 13 October
Performance : Thursday, September 14, 7pm

The Green On Red Gallery is excited to announce Breath, the 8th solo exhibition in the gallery of new works by the artist Nigel Rolfe.

A set of relational works made recently in 2017
About inside and outside
Insides and outsides
How the world outside enters us
How we seek to be and where to belong
Where in the world
Caught for breath

In Performance making
The agency of being and doing most often has four representations:

Firstly the body as site is the instrument for actions.
This located in place and across time.

Its afterlife which are perhaps threefold:

The residue of what is left in material terms, traces and remains and deposits.

Then the captured document as the photographic or filmic record – holding and marking – archiving moments of time.

Then possibly the most significant, the memory of the transient or
ephemeral images made directly in the moment . What resonates and is retained of animated and changing passing pictures – the somehow caught in between.

Future Proof | Group Exhibition at The LAB, Dublin

14 September to 16 December 2017

“If you want to understand the causes made in the past, look at the results as they are manifest in the present. And if you want to know what results will be manifest in the future, look at the causes that exist in the present.”
(Major Writings of Nichiren Daishonin Vol 2 P.172.)

What will the world be like in the future and will there be a place for humanity in it? Art & Science help us to imagine answers to these questions. Both begin in the imagination, constantly questioning what we perceive to be true and looking at the world around us with new eyes all the time.

There’s a word in Japanese, ‘inga’, which means cause and effect. The principle underly­ing ‘inga’ is that if there is a cause, there will certainly be an effect, and that if there is an effect, there will, without fail, also be a cause. The artists in this exhibition explore how by looking at our past and present behaviour we can take real steps towards making, imagining, shaping and safeguarding our future.

This exhibition presented by Dublin City Council’s The LAB Gallery is a collaboration with UCD Parity Studios with thanks to the Arts Council, the National Council for Curriculum Assessment, Visual Thinking Strategies, the OPW and the RHA Gallery. For more read here.
