Opening: Thursday, May 9th, 7pm.
Fifty artists collaborate in pairs for a multi-disciplinary exhibition in Dún Laoghaire.
Artists from Dún Laoghaire and the surrounding area will show new work, made in collaboration, at an innovative exhibition in May.
The project is an initiative of the artists’ network ArtNetdlr.
When artists from different disciplines work together it often results in a kind of artistic alchemy that leads both the artists – and the viewer – into previously unimagined places, and that’s the case here. Hinterland will offer an entirely new perspective on Dún Laoghaire, its environs and its inhabitants.
A poet has worked with a performance artist to make a poetic film; two photographers document a change in the landscape at Cherrywood, at the foot of the Dublin Mountains; a director and a writer/photographer identify women in places such as the former Magdalene laundry and the immigrants’ hostel originally situated on Eblana Avenue.
Other pairings include a painter with a musician and a graphic artist with a ceramicist and this varied exhibition will encompass moving images, spoken-word pieces, installations, paintings, ceramics and more. And it’s not just the physical world – the exhibition will take us into emotional and psychological hinterlands, too.
Hinterland is curated by Jackie Ball and runs from May 9th-19th 2019 at Eblana House, Eblana Avenue, Dún Laoghaire, The Exhibition will be formally opened by Dr Margarita Cappock, Curator/Arts Officer and Public Art Collection Specialist at Dublin City Art Office
Invited guests include the German Ambassador Dieke Potzel,
