Online Exhibition | Terra infirma by Dougal McKenzie, Aisling O’Beirn at PS2


Online Exhibition | Terra infirma by Dougal McKenzie, Aisling O'Beirn at PS2 Date/Time
Date(s) - 22/03/2021 - 10/04/2021





This project started as a weeklong Instagram takeover by the two artists, Aisling O’Beirn and Dougal McKenzie during the first lockdown phase in May 2020. Aisling posted images of her recent pencil drawings, Dougal responded with sketches on WhatsApp of one and the same view through a hedge on his daily walks. The project will show the ongoing dialogue about their personal take on drawing and present the original drawings and- in Dougal’s case- work on paper inspired by his WhatsApp drawings.
The artists installed the work in our project space, despite the sad situation that we won’t be able to open the project to the public, due to the continuous Lockdown regulations. But, already experienced in having such limitations, Aisling O’Beirn and Dougal McKenzie worked on a zine with images and texts which you can download and print out at home.
PS² asked the artists to add to a documentation with something different, disruptive, unsettling. What they came up with is a sound piece, where the artists read the published text simultaneously. It requires an active act of listening, of heightened sensitivity, to distinguish the voices and make-or re-construct- any sense. Something the last year might have taught us.
