Two dates for the diary!
Our own Mary-Jo Gilligan and James Ó hAodha will be creating ephemeral events as part of The Lab’s current group show ‘Tonight, you can call me Trish’.
‘Your Otoliths- An Audio Route Guide to the LAB Gallery for Minecrafters’, Saturday March, 1st, 11am-3pm
(To register for participation, please visit www.thelab.ie)
Mary-Jo Gilligan has been commissioned to create an ephemeral event that sets the context for a niche engagement with the exhibition and its locale. The work titled ‘Your Otoliths- An Audio Route Guide to the LAB Gallery for Minecrafters’, unfolds as a guided journey custom built for the Minecraft gaming community.
‘For the Birds’, Saturday 15th of March, 11am-3pm
James Ó hAodha has been commissioned to devise an encounter with a specific community of interest. His work ‘For the Birds’ is a one off event, which takes place in the Lab gallery over a single day. Teasing out notions of what constitutes ‘audience’ and ‘exhibition’ he plays with the presence of three hand-picked exotic birds who similtaneously occupy the gallery both as viewer and live performer, activating, intervening, and, in moments becoming complicit with the language of display, aesthetics and the mediation of contemporary visual art.
Ormond members Mary-Jo Gilligan and James O hAodha will have work in the upcoming exhibition ‘Tonight you can call me Trish’. Curated by Rachael Gilbourne and Kate Strain, the exhibition in The Lab, Foley Street, will open on Thursday 6th February and run until 22nd March. Details to follow soon on both James and Mary-Jo’s ephemeral contributions to the show in March!
