    'So it's a mid-collaborative-residency talk/prototype/interactive brain clock demo event'

    Sinead McDonald and Sean Enda Power 

    Thursday 3rd December at 5.00pm 2015

    Talk takes place at Talbot Gallery with complimentary Tea / Coffee

    Philosopher Sean Power (UCC) will talk about the nature of time. He argues that our sense of time speeding up and slowing down is no illusion, but only the result of our treating our experience like a clock. 
    Resident visual artist Sinead McDonald will discuss the nature of collaborative residencies, and working across multiple disciplines, She will also talk about time, how we perceive it as humans, how we count it, and how it REALLY works(or doesn't).

    ***

    Sinead McDonald is a Dublin Based visual artist. A graduate of the 
    NCAD Art in the Digital World Fine Art masters, her research and 
    practice often crosses disciplinary and media boundaries. Recent work 
    examines a blurring of the lines between science and fiction, and 
    collaborative projects with physicists, meta-physicists, engineers, 
    and computer scientists.

    Dr. Sean Enda Power is a theoretical philosopher and author. He was 
    awarded his PhD in philosophy from the University of Leeds in January 
    2010, with a thesis examining the relationship between the experience 
    of time and the metaphysics of time, especially given contemporary 
    physical theory and phenomenology. He frequently collaborates with 
    artists, including performances with Grace Weir at IMMA and public 
    lectures at the Lewis Glucksman Gallery.

  • Sean Grimes 2015 MPGA WINNER

    Sean Grimes
    Jun 28th 18:00 - Aug 31st 18:44 2015

    Winner Talbot Gallery & Studios Most Promising Graduate Award 2015

    Sean Grimes recieves a studio residency for a year and a solo show in 2016

    Sean Grimes practice is centred on modes of collection. He gathers and arranges images and objects both physically and with the use of photography and drawing. Arrangement and sequencing of the collected materials presents a large scope for narrative development. Grimes attempts to draw-out or focus attention to these sequences by overlaying a secondary visual language, such as the use of bespoke frames.

    The photographs included in his degree exhibition follow the principals of the snapshot and are taken largely without the use of the viewfinder to compose the photograph. This way of working allows a perspective which is slightly at odds with our normal standpoint. The photographs are arranged to form sets which lead the viewer into a narrative pathway. Amongst the photographic works are drawings which have been made by overlaying tracings of aspects of diagrams sourced from a variety of books. By nature, diagrams afford the producer a visualisation of an object or scenario which is beyond their physical grasp. This way of working has evolved from the production of schematic diagrams relating to spatial layouts of photographs and sculptures. The assemblage sculpture in the exhibition Get Yourself Together Or Fall Apart (2015) uses a combination of the two approaches outlined above, A layering of images to form a whole and a layout which challenges the viewer to make connections. It makes use of sentimentally loaded birthday cards and practical yet beautiful glass fishing floats to engage the viewer in a kind of non-verbal reasoning.

    Jun 26th 18:44 - Jun 27th 18:44 2015

     

    A Documentary by artist Shane McCormack follows a series of performances by Leah Smith 'Navigating The Public Space' during her residency at Talbot Gallery & Studios. It will be shown in the gallery space as Leah's residency comes to a close. 
    Leah Smith was the winner of Talbot Gallery & Studios Most Promising Graduate Award 2014. Over the past 11 months Leah was commissioned to create 3 performances under the guidance and mentorship of contemporary Irish performance artists Amanda Coogan, Dominic Thorpe and Ciara McKeon. The documentary gives you an inside into this journey.

     

    The announcement of Talbot Gallery & Studios Most Promising Graduate Award 2015 will take place on Saturday 27th June 12 noon to coincide with the viewing of the documentary of Leah Smith's performances as part of her residency for the year. This is a very fitting as Leah hands over the keys to the winner of The Most Promising Graduate Award 2015. The graduates are selected on their work in the degree shows from DIT, NCAD & IADT. 
    This is a great opportunity for a graduate to continue their practise and to be nurtured in a supportive environment. The winner receives the keys to a studio space free for a year and a solo exhibition in the gallery space in 2016

  • Navigating the Public Space: Process

    leah Smith
    Apr 10th 11:00 - Apr 10th 12:00 2015

    The Second Performance of the series, Navigating The Public Space: ‘Process’ will take place at 11am on Friday the 10th of April 2015, in Eileen McLoughlin Park / Liberty Park Dublin 1 (Next to Lab Gallery). This performance has also been informed through discussion with Dominic Thorpe.

    Leah Smith was the winner of Talbot Gallery & Studios Most Promising Graduate Award 2014 for her performance piece at IADT graduate exhibition. As part of her residency Leah’s performance project will take place in three different locations forming a triangle around the gallery, in doing so bringing art into the public space. 
    The three part performance series is in collaboration with three mentors. Contemporary Irish performance artists Amanda Coogan, Dominic Thorpe and Ciara McKeon will each work with Leah exploring the theme of negotiating a public space 
    Each performance is choreographed to respond to the space and is realised through specific materials and actions. The project recognises the sense of division felt within our society, an aspect mirrored by the separation felt between performer and viewer. Leah’s work aims to bridge the gap between the two through creating a relationship with the audience. 
    The diverse and multi cultural location of Dublin 1 adds to the development of Leah’s previous performances, as she reaches out and embraces a new audience. The nature of performance art is ephemeral, no two performances are the same, the outcome and the audience’s reaction is uncertain in this sense the artist is exposed and vulnerable. This was tackled in the first Performance ‘Navigating the public space: Anticipation’ mentored by Amanda Coogan which took place on the 20th of February 2015 in Connolly Station. 
    In this next performance the idea of creating a process focused performance while at the same time respecting the area and the space. Leah aims to perform a series of actions to create an object that will represent the weight that an area obtains through associations and assumptions often created by fear.

    ‘Process’ will kick off the second ‘What are you looking at?’ guided tour

    ‘What are you looking at?’ Take a tour of the contemporary in this historic pocket of the city, meet the curators, find out more about the artists from emerging to established, and enjoy a cup of tea/coffee and a chat 
    Come along, bring a friend and make some new ones. 
    Hosted by MONTO - The LAB Gallery, Talbot Gallery and Studios, Artbox, Oonagh Young Gallery and Firestation Artist Studios .

    The tour is free, but spaces are limited, so please book in advance click here.

    **ONE NIGHT ONLY**
    7-9pm


    Musical performance by Anna Clock (featuring Anna Clifford, Clara Grimes and Georgia Cusack) at 7.30pm
    ___________________

     

    On Thursday 19th March, the first Incubator Residency hosted by Talbot Gallery & Studios will culminate in an event/ installation, open to the public for one night only. The evening will be a result of eight weeks of interdisciplinary collaboration between artists Claire McCluskey and Isadora Epstein. The installation will also include the cassette and digital release of Anna Clifford's musical composition 'Celestial.' 

     

    'Celestial' is a musical exploration of the Hubble Extreme Deep Field, an image that shows the deepest optical view into outer space. The recording has been evolving since February 2014 and features 11 musicians. On the day of this event it will be released at annaclock.bandcamp.com and limited edition cassettes will be available at the gallery. It will be released under the name Anna Clock. To mark the release, composer Anna Clifford will perform some new music with Clara Grimes and Georgia Cusack in the gallery. The music, entitled 'Songs for Space', will be performed at 7.30pm.

     

    Acknowledging the differences between their practices, this event will map connections made between McCluskey’s sculptural process and Epstein’s illustrations. Alongside Clifford's 'Celestial', they will present their investigation into how constellations are made - tracing the lines drawn between stars and myth, between angles and celestial beasts. 

     

    The newly initiated Incubator Residency Series at Talbot Gallery & Studios provides a platform for research, development of interdisciplinary collaboration. Based on the foundation of ‘Be Present, Make Work, Present Work Made,’ artists are invited in to the exhibition space at Talbot Gallery & Studios, to tease out their process, offering the public an insight to various stages of its development. This series hosts interdisciplinary conversations, processes and collaborations, making the gallery space a site to map distances and connections between practices.

    The newly initiated Incubator Residency Series at Talbot Gallery & Studios provides a platform for research, development and opportunity for interdisciplinary collaboration. Based on the foundation of ‘Be Present, Make Work, Present Work Made,’ artists will be invited in to the exhibition space at Talbot Gallery & Studios, to tease out their process, offering the public an insight to various stages of its development.


    This series will host interdisciplinary conversations, processes and collaborations, making the gallery space a site to map distances and connections between practices. Throughout the next six weeks, the first Incubator Residency will see collaboration between visual artists Claire McCluskey and Isadora Epstein.


    McCluskey and Epstein have been motivated to collaborate based on the differences they have recognised in each other’s approaches to making work. This residency will open their investigation into how connections and constellations are made - the lines drawn between stars and myth, between angles and celestial beasts. They will begin by tracing the constellations between their own differing practices, aligning McCluskey’s sculptural forms with Epstein’s illustrations.


    Epstein and McCluskey’s visual exploration will be documented and made available to the public. At various stages, their conversations and the gallery will open up to other practitioners and visitors, to enter and make connections of their own.

  • Incubator Residency presents: Gallery Discussion

    Epstein & McCluskey
    Mar 02nd 19:30 - Mar 02nd 21:00 2015

    In association with Talbot Gallery & Studios and the Incubator Residency Series ‘be present | make work | present work made’, we, Isadora Epstein and Claire McCluskey, would like to invite you in to see our work and join in a discussion with us at the Talbot Gallery next Monday evening.

    Through February and March we have been mapping connections made between McCluskey’s sculptural process with Epstein’s illustrations. Together we are investigating how constellations are made - the lines drawn between stars and myth, between angles and celestial beasts. Our work will eventually culminate in a one night event/installation on March 19th which will involve a musical composition 'Celestial' by Anna Clifford.

    Now as we reach the midpoint of our residency, we want to open up the space to talk with you about what we have been working on and thinking about. Our fascination with constellations comes from a curiosity in how connections and narratives are made and we hope that opening up our conversation will lead to new connections and perspectives.

    Set to be an evening of informal, easy-going discussion, it is sure to be an interesting experience. Tea and treats will also be provided!

    Looking forward to seeing you there!

    To coincide with the exhibition Tarot, Jennifer Kidd will lead two free animation workshops for ages 9 upwards on Saturday 20th September @ 12-2pm and @ 3-5pm. 

    This is a great opportunity to learn from an artist working in this medium and will give those interested in animation invaluable insight into the work that goes on behind the scenes. Jennifer Kidd's practice includes sculpture, sound, installation, stop motion animation and performance. Her accomplished work within the animation industry is combined with her visual art practice. By using stop motion animation as a medium for performance Kidd’s work focuses on our relationship with time. Tarot will be a series of stop motion animated performance pieces, centered around the concept of decision-making and the habits we adopt when faced with difficult choices.

  • Jane O Sullivan- conversation with Rachel McIntyre


    Jul 12th 14:00 - Jul 12th 16:00 2014

    To coincide with Jane O Sullivan's 'Life is Supported in Mysterious Ways', the artist and Rachel McIntyre, Gallery Assistant at the Douglas Hyde Gallery will be discussing her exhibition on Saturday 12th July.

     

All are welcome to this event which promises to offer some fascinating insight into Jane O'Sullivan's work.



    This show at Talbot Gallery and Studios is an attempt to reveal a space of 'passionate silence' (a term coined by Symbolist artist Gustave Moreau) and which comes from O'Sullivan’s extensive research into and around notions of poetic space. 

This specially created new body of work consists of an installation of new drawings, altered found objects and a film element.



    'Life is Supported in Mysterious Ways' is currently on show at the Talbot Gallery and runs until July 19th.
