A huge thank you everyone who both assisted and attended the exhibition. To Gillian, Cillian, Clodagh, Finola and all the staff of Prosper Fingal, without your support this project could not have been possible. To our amazing students who we will miss so dearly, thank you for welcoming us with such enthusiasm and for making every Friday such an invaluable and enjoyable experience. We cannot praise you enough for creating such pure and beautiful work, we can only hope that you are as proud of your art as we are and continue to enjoy and value what you create.
Glitches I’ve cut from over 23 hours of my parents home videos.
After a 10week studio occupation of the former primary school on John’s Lane with notice collective I made a sound piece to accompany the viewer on an old church pew set with the view of the windows of John’s Lane.
PLAYGROUND showcases a 10 week occupation of a former primary school on John’s Lane by NOTICE COLLECTIVE on the 17th of September. The collective was formed over the summer as a knowledge and skill share group for potentially expanding on studio practice through play and group discussions.
Considering the pressure of academic term studio practice and its influence the summer studio allowed for testing of self motivation, self esteem and peer-to-peer critique. Allowing for playground freedom, fun and falls.
