A Meeting Point: Communication/Translation | Group Exhibition at Espacio Artkunstarte, Madrid

23 February to 27 July 2018

‘A Meeting Point: Communication / Translation’ is a two-part exhibition featuring work by three artists who have spent time in Madrid while doing their respective residencies at espacio artkunstarte:

‘Communication’ unveils a collaborative effort between José Antonio Suárez Londoño and Claire Kerr. Suárez Londoño has always balanced the serious business of art making with a certain amount of humor and playfulness. Just as in the tradition of the surrealists with their exquisite corps works, José Antonio has occasionally and selectively invited other artists to do what he calls a “ping-pong” with him, choosing certain words as a starting point for translation into small drawings or paintings.

‘Translation’, the second part of the exhibition, presents works by Mikko Rikala and José Antonio Suárez Londoño alongside photographs by Francesca Woodman.

11.9 km Nortwest of the City Centre | Ella Bertilsson & Ulla Juske at Hobusepea Galerii, Estonia

1 March to 19 March 2018

“There are palm trees everywhere in [Ireland].”

Ella Bertilsson and Ulla Juske will present a glimpse into Rainy Days in Blanch, a family sitcom recorded in the iconic Blanchardstown Centre in the weeks before its official opening in 1996. Original video recordings and a replica studio set will be showcased in Hobusepea Galerii Tallinn in an exhibition titled ‘11.9km Northwest of the City Centre’.

Starring an all-female cast, Rainy Days in Blanch portrays a multigenerational family and their family friend. Each character shares directly with the audience an account of a memory, dream or nightmare. These previously unaired stories speak about house, home, family, and migration, as well as fear, paranoia, displacement and territory.

The exhibition is the product of research and practice undertaken by the artist-duo (SWE/IRE & EST/IE) during their recent residencies in Draíocht Arts Centre (Ireland) and Nordic Artists’ Centre Dale (Norway) and has been kindly funded by Culture Ireland and the Cultural Endowment of Estonia.

At the Violet Hour | Group Exhibition at Nayland Rock, Margate, UK

3 February to 11 March 2018

In this exhibition, national and international artists riff off the ‘inviolable’ voices in T.S. Eliot’s The Waste Land. With a focus on myth, gender and facets of the self, the artists’ work will re-inhabit and re-animate the empty rooms, spaces and grounds of the Grade II listed Nayland Rock Hotel, Margate.

Recalling Eliot’s own convalescence in Margate in 1921, some of the works in this exhibition will be created during short artist residencies held at the hotel, alongside a number of specially commissioned, site-specific works responding directly to the visual lexicon of The Waste Land against the backdrop of the hotel’s heritage; its faded grandeur, peeling wallpaper and artexed surfaces.

It is through an exploration of the myriad voices in The Waste Land, and through the personage of Tiresias in particular, that we choose to navigate the past and possible future of the Nayland Rock Hotel.

Smaller + Faster | Nadine Stewart at tuesday coworking space berlin, Germany

13 December to 25 January

Friend of tuesday coworking and all-round good egg, Nadine Stewart, will be exhibiting her latest works at the space for six weeks.

After stumbling upon a box of old photographs outside a bookshop in Prenzlauerberg, and after a very short exchange between Nadine and John (co-founder of tuesday coworking) and the extremely well-oiled woman minding the shop, they walked away with a trove of over a thousand old family photographs of complete strangers.

The photographs in this exhibition date from early to mid 1900s. The people in the photographs are unknown, but this does not take away from their ability to evoke a feeling of familiarity, inspiring the viewer to revisit memories of similar situations with our own families. Each photograph tells a small part of a bigger picture.

The first selection of photographs will be shown under the title “smaller + faster”.

7 to 11 November 2017

KRM Cherif et Geza, International artists (French and German) are exhibiting from May to October 2017 alongside original works by JM Basquait, Kieth Haring and Andy Warhol in the Museum de Montelimar, France.

John Costi (London) has exhibited internationally, Tate Modern/ London Art Fair.

Paul Doran (Belfast) has also exhibited International in Ivory Coast/ Liverpool Art Fair/ Titanic Belfast.

The NO WALLS project is an international contemporary visual arts exhibition and live performances in interaction with the Belfast public. The artists chose Belfast to launch its first exhibition for symbolic reasons and to recognise the progress made for peace in Northern Ireland. At the launch and Public event old French posters placed on the floor become a communicative vehicle as visitors are invited to write messages and expressions on them. These will be placarded by the artists at Northumberland St Belfast interface gates where Paul Doran and Mark Ervine have collaborated with a mural as part of No Walls project, where the public can add comments and art.

Belfast was chosen by the artists for symbolic reasons and to recognise the progress made for peace in Northern Ireland. The objectives are to promote peace, human rights, personal introspection and communication through art. NO WALLS empowers ordinary people to express their views. NO WALLS does not advocate the premature ‘bringing down of walls’ where people’s safety could be compromised. It is aspirational and an expression of hope.
