Fogtíogarburn

Opening Thu Mar 19th, 7-9 pm

Gallery Opening Hours: Wed-Sun, 2-7 pm

Fogtíogarburn is a multimedia installation project that presents a spectacle event of the “ghosts” of Smithfield Market, Dublin.  The work begins with an event/video shoot in Smithfield and following that, an exhibition of 3D souvenirs saturated in pink glitter that evoke the “ghosts” of the Smithfield Market in the gallery space.  A video of the event will be projected in the gallery’s front window. 

The gallery space is configured so that it’s optimally (and briefly) viewed from the “Luas” — a ghostly slice of a dream space for flaneurian passengers that is paradoxically filled with souvenirs of pink fog and posters of forgotten events that have been re-remembered.

Andréa Stanislav lives and works in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and New York City. Born in Chicago in 1968, Stanislav received an MFA from Alfred University in 1997 and a BFA from the Art Institute of Chicago in 1990. She is currently a PhD candidate in New Media and Communication at the European Graduate School, Saas Fee Switzerland. She is an Assistant Professor of Art at the University of Minnesota and regularly exhibits her work both in the USA and abroad. This is her first exhibition in the Republic of Ireland.
