Wendy Judge

Works of the World United     More… Great Works

More Great Works takes a surveillance view of no go hazardous areas, where the sometimes-intense secrecy surrounding such places leads to the breeding of rumors and conspiracy theories as to what their function really is.

Wendy Judge works mainly though sculpture and drawing. Her art practice is concerned with the anomalous within the landscape, both in structures on the land and also within the land itself. These landscapes are recreated through models. It is not only the representations and the approximations that interest her but the dynamic between the actual and the imagination, the relationship between the objects, and what that may trigger.

This work is driven by connecting threads, associations and coincidences found through cultural references such as literature, historical painting, popular culture and film. This process of cross-pollination helps propel odd dialogues and private conversations though to a querying of the mechanisms of culture, power and politics.

This current project is a continuation of Great Works, work shown in the Goethe Institute in 2008. The work is accompanied by a publication with texts by Sarah Pierce and Antonio Beecroft.

 James Marrigan

 Hardware

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. Reviewed in CIRCA twice in succession for Solo Show ‘…could we talk before and after… (PART 1),’ Queen Street Gallery, Belfast (2008); and for CIRCA’S CRITICS CHOICE AT DEGREE SHOWS (2008).  Lives and works in Ireland.

 Andrea Stanislav

 Fogtíogarburn

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

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.

    It’s very trouble-free to find out any topic on net as compared
    to books, as I found this piece of writing at this website.
