Alan

Magee

This edition developed from an exploration of the relationship between the individual and the corporation, focusing on the ubiquitous Helix Shatter Resistant ruler. Introduced in the 1980s, the ruler’s name was seen, not as a description of the ruler’s characteristics, but as a challenge to the pupils who subsequently sought to shatter it As part of the marketing strategy, the ruler had a specific 'fractured' font, and so during the making process, the text was deconstructed and reconstructed to ‘fix’ the font, thus fracturing the ruler’s edge The resulting fractured ruler was then formed around the text such that the act of fixing the font breaks the ruler The original function is negated in the process of becoming an art object.

Alan Magee was born in Ireland and lives and works between Dublin & London. He holds an MA in Fine Art from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design, London, and a BA from TU Dublin (DIT), Ireland Awards include; Arts Council Ireland and Culture Ireland awards, The Performance Corporation’s SPACE Programme 2022 residency, Fire Station Artists’ Studios sculpture bursary, and Florence Trust studio residency He has notably exhibited at White Cube, London; Castor, London; Xi’an Academy, China and LCGA, Limerick He is a PhD researcher on the C.O.A.T. scholarship, exploring the nature of artistic labour in the post digital era. He is an occasional lecturer at UAL and is represented by Castor (London)

Magee’s practice employs a diverse array of media and processes as he questions modern capitalism’s effect on the human condition, in particular, the labouring body His works are conceptually tethered to the labour of their making, and as such can be read as performance as much as sculpture Utilising Virtual reality, Augmented reality, Ceramics, Robotics, Digital sculpture, 3D printing and Drawing, the works overlap to form multi-layered and satisfying linkages between them.

Andrej Getman

I am a painter and visual artist originally from Lithuania Since 2005, I have been living and working in Ireland. I hold both a Bachelor's and Master's degree in Fine Art - Painting from the National College of Art and Design My work revolves around exploring the interconnected themes of urbanization, socio-political injustice, LGBTQ+ rights, mental health, and modern culture. In particular, I am deeply committed to researching and shedding light on the inequity, harassment, and persecution faced by the LGBTQ+ community, both in Ireland and on a global scale

Through my art, I strive to create a visual narrative that resonates with viewers, challenging perspectives, and fostering dialogue I employ a diverse range of techniques and mediums, often experimenting with mixed media. As a visual artist, I believe in the power of art to evoke emotions and inspire positive change. Through my work, I strive to contribute to the ongoing fight for equality and social transformation

Emma Mc Keagney

Emma Mc Keagney is an artist, writer & researcher based in Dublin, Ireland

Interested in how we humans contort, live in, destroy, repair and document our time in space, Mc Keagney’s written and art practices both interrogate the blurred categories of human and non-human and what exists between these boundaries. Mc Keagney works in sculpture, photography, video, poetry, fiction, and non-fiction writing Her research and writing inform her art practice, and both often intertwine to form the basis of her work in exhibitions, publications and online articles. Often responding to academic texts or bodies of research with process-based making – her work oscillates between a research-based practice and an intuitive practise of working with materials.

Mc Keagney has exhibited in Helsinki, Dublin and Sligo with organisations and collectives including RuaRed, The Complex, MART and BaHa. Her first solo exhibition entitled Unstable Categories took place as part of Pallas Projects and Studios Artist-Initiated Projects in 2018 Mc Keagney has been recipient of Art Council Agility Award, the Firestation Sculpture Award, Talbot Studios Most Promising Graduate Award and has recently won a Percent Scheme Sculpture Commission in a National School in Dublin

Harry Walsh Foreman

Contemporary urban street life is full of distinctive characters and personalities In my work I imagine the hidden everyday narratives of these individuals. These ideas formed the framework of my graphic series “Mortal Engines” ‘Mortal Engines’ is a comic apologia of the humans which surround and interact with us and the marks we make on the world from the architecture of a skyline to the tagging on a storefront. It is made in celebration of the local, the small-scale, the eccentric and the down-right ordinary It is a search for the moments which contain a multitude of possibilities for examining the humour of the everyday

A graduate of the Masters course in NCAD, Dublin and the Turps Correspondance Course My work is primarily interested in creating a interactive fusion between the viewer and the art. While I fully defer to the importance of the ‘white cube,’ I am more concerned with creating a strong feeling of character and place, allowing my diverse work to be viewed as a conceptual whole My work is rooted in the ideas of social realism which allows me a framework for exploring contemporary life in Dublin

Recent shows include my most recent solo show Mortal Engines Vol 5 in the Dock arts centre in Carrick-on-Shannon, the 'Dubliners' exhibition in the 6th Biennial of painting in Zagreb, Croatia, Mortal Engines, Vol 4: The Pando Edition," in the Courthouse Gallery, Ennistymon, Co Clare, " the 193rd and the 190th Annual RHA shows, Highlane Gallery open 2020 and Futures: Series 3 episode 3 in the RHA gallery.

Buttner is a recipient of numerous awards, with works exhibited and held in public and private collections nationally and internationally. Selected solo and group exhibitions include; Orphaned From Belonging, LUAN Gallery; A Recognition of the Connection Between Events, SIM, Iceland, Chewing Gum in My Hair, Platform 21, curated by Sharon Murphy, Draíocht Gallery Love You My Sweaty, curated by Sara Muthi, TLP
