The Loudest Sound, my latest installation and collaborative effort with Saigon-based photographer Bui The Trung Nam, has been included in the OFFSIDE exhibition in Dublin. I will be posting more information about this work after the exhibition opens and we have some nice documentation from the curator of the work installed. - RST
DUBLIN CITY GALLERY THE HUGH LANE
IN COLLABORATION WITH PALLAS STUDIOS
Pallas Heights will present Offside and Offsite Live at Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane from 9th July until 30th September 2005.
Offside, curated by Mark Cullen and Brian Duggan, is a Pallas Heights / Hugh Lane collaboration. Offside is artists working in an unprescribed manner that ignores boundaries between creative endeavours. It places faith in artists to deliver authentic artworks and projects according to their own agendas. Offside is a platform for a wide range of artistic concerns articulated through varied media. Offside runs in The Hugh Lane Gallery and off sites including The Civic Offices, Dublin Docklands and areas around Parnell Sq.
Offside features work by: Albano Afonso, Antistrot, Anna Boyle, Rhona Byrne, Mark Cullen, Brian Duggan, John Dummett, Brendan Earley, Andreas Gefeller, Niamh McCann, Alex McCullagh, Nina McGowan, Nathaniel Mellors, Clive Murphy, Adriette Myburgh, Cristophe Neumann, Paul O'Neill, Garrett Phelan, Abigail Reynolds, Rich Streitmatter-Tran (in collaboration with Bui The Trung Nam), Mark Titchner and Anti-Social-Behaviour-Object.
Offside Live co-programmed by Fergus Byrne on Saturday July 16th will offer a platform for local artists to present their work in a museum context. The event challenges the traditional function of the museum with a startling mix of contemporary live audio and visual artistry.
Pallas Studios & Heights has activated urban spaces outside the conventions of the white gallery cube with independent projects since 1998. Pallas Heights is currently in operation in Sean Tracey House, a block of semi-derelict flats awaiting demolition. In this space it has hosted several contemporary art projects each year but it will be soon be rased by the wrecking ball of developers. This is the first time it will enter the public gallery walls as an invited guest.
Offside is part of the 2005 temporary programme curated by Christina Kennedy, Hugh Lane’s Head of Exhibitions, which focuses on special lectures, off-site projects and installations of international current art practice- underpinning the Hugh Lane’s role as facilitator of contemporary art productions, ideas and cultural exchange within the city.
“There is an alternative art scene [in Ireland], exemplified by Pallas Studios.” The Irish Times
