The Lie of the Land at Sirius Arts Centre
The Lie of the Land is a multi-part project that will encompass an exhibition and a reading/listening night. The project examines the idea that there are certain materialities (both in the work and in the landscape) that seem to serve as cultural remnants. These remnants can sometimes define a certain Irish aesthetic in the landscape, or what might be perceived as one. Tackling well-trodden arguments around the monument, the ruin and modernity in Irish landscape and architecture, the project considers perceptions of contemporary rural Ireland as shown through visual art and writing.
To accompany the exhibition, there will be a reading / listening event on February 27th that will include a reading of short stories from Cork based writer Sara Baume and Berlin based Adrian Duncan. In addition to this radio producers Kevin Brew (RTÉ Radio 1) and Luke Clancy (Soundsdoable / RTÉ Lyric FM’s Culture File) will play sound and stories from the radio archive reflecting their experience of the Irish landscape. The event will include an informal discussion.
Participating artists include visual artists Helen Devitt (sculpture/installation) (Cork), Kenneth O’Halloran (photography) (Dublin/L.A), Adrian Duncan (sculpture/installation, video, drawing) (Dublin/Berlin) and Jill Quigley (photography)(Belfast), writer Sarah Baume (Cork), and RTE Radio 1 producers Kevin Brew and Luke Clancy (Dublin). Curated by Miranda Driscoll.
