James Merrigan

FEB 27 – MAR 8



Opening Thu Feb 26th, 7-9pm

Exhibition Hours: Wed-Sun, 2-7pm

For thisisnotashop, Merrigan has fabricated a site-specific installation that plays with the image of a hardware store as a site of possibility. From this fabricated stage, he invites the audience to extract the end, beginning and centre of a potentially hazardous narrative. James Merrigan’s recent work has been focused on the idea of the event, and how we, as an audience, capture or read the event. He fabricates these events from videos and paraphernalia that are crudely cut fractions of a bigger happening. His work is a lead in, or the afters of an event, and centers around ideas of crisis, horror and ritual.

Born in Dublin in 1976. Recently completed an MFA at the National College of Art & Design, Dublin. Awarded NCAD Graduate Studentship, 2008. Has taken part in a number of selected group exhibitions in Dublin and Galway. Most recently selected for a solo show at Queen Street Gallery, Belfast.

    Hello! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with
    hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended
    up losing several weeks of hard work due to no data backup.
    Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

    Today, I went to the beach fronnt with my children. I found a sea shell
    and gafe it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inmside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is totally off topic but I had to tell someone!

    I am thinking about taking pro hormones, do you think this is good idea for advanced bodybuilder like me?
    Bodybuilders are satisfied with the results after prohormones
    cycles, just google for – 100% pure muscles without side effects – worth a try?
