H U D D L E is an art discussion group devised and chaired by Saidhbhín Gibson. This is an inclusive event for the discussion around contemporary art and associative narratives. The seminars have been running since 2017 and have taken place in numerous venues including IMMA (Dublin), Arthouse (Stradbally), TBG+S (Dublin) and VISUAL (Carlow). The project creates a platform for knowledge sharing and those interested in contemporary art to come together.
This H U D D L E session will be especially small with a limited capacity on a first come, first serve basis. If you are interested in attending the forthcoming H U D D L E you must pre-register by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org before Friday 25 September. Reading material will be issued in advance.
The H U D D L E session will not be taking place in the Kilkenny Arts Office Gallery, location will be shared with the signed up participants closer to the time.
Saidhbhín Gibson is a graduate of NCAD, Dublin (MFA, honours, Fine Art Sculpture, 2016) and DIT Mountjoy Square, Dublin (BA, honours, Fine Art, 2000). Gibson’s work explores the framing of the non-human world for and by contemporary society. She employs multifarious methods of production whereby the haptic is at the core of the manufacture of the work. These processes include video, sculpture, photography and needlepoint lace. Her work presents scenarios of interference in the Natural world, while highlighting the nuances of botanical, avian, insect and tree life.
Recent exhibitions include Utopia/Dystopia, Lexicon Gallery, Dún Laoghaire; A Vague Anxiety, IMMA, Dublin (2019); Encountering the Land, VISUAL, Carlow (2018); Upright Meadow (public art commission), Pure Thinking Community Group, Carlow (2017). Saidhbhín Gibson is the founder and co-ordinator of H U D D L E; an inclusive, contemporary art discussion group initiative that has been hosted in a number of galleries and arts centres in Ireland.
This event is programmed as part of the exhibition L̶e̶s̶s̶ Stress M̶o̶r̶e̶ Success currently on at the Kilkenny Arts Office Gallery. This programme is kindly supported by Kilkenny County Council and the Arts Council of Ireland.
