CCA Derry~Londonderry is delighted to invite you to the launch of 4 Ballads by Mark Buckeridge (NI/RoI) and Joiners by Ona Juciūtė (LT), our 2022 DeMo residents. This is the second iteration of our residency programme and partnership with Kaunas Artists’ Houseand the Lithuanian Culture Institute. Entitled DeMo, this biennial programme supports emerging artists to participate in an exchange between Northern Ireland and Lithuania. The solo shows are comprised of new work made during the residency inspired by personal narratives and the practice of textile making of our region (Ona Juciūtė) and sean nós singing and community found in music making (Mark Buckeridge).

4 Ballads is a performance and installation by Mark Buckeridge. Within this sculptural setting performance, collage and sound are intertwined to explore the intersection of traditional singing, nostalgia and poetic details of everyday life.

Ona Juciūtė is interested in the practices and shifts of making today. She works across sculpture, installation and moving images. With a set of sculptures made specifically for this show, she is exploring parallels between tailoring, clothing and furniture making. The video piece Joinersconnects patchwork making practices of former Factory Girls from Derry and a story of Ona’s father – a carpenter – and his relationship with the changing world through his skill.

A series of events and Round Table Podcast will be accompany the exhibition, keep an eye on our website for details.
