www.projectartscentre.ie

Gallery 30 August – 26 October 11am – 8pm Admission Free

Curated by Tessa Giblin The gallery will be transformed with intricate woven floor pieces, talisman-like sculptures and a hint of performance, in an exhibition of new work made for Project Arts Centre. The exhibition expands on her fascination with cultural identity, ritual and spirituality, to create a unique environment which blurs the line between art and object, the exotic and the banal, in an attempt to align the mind, body, and spirit all in one space. Jennifer Tee (b.1973, Arnhem) lives and works in Amsterdam. Her practice includes sculpture, installation, performance, photography and collages. Jennifer Tee has made solo exhibitions in recent years at Eastside Projects, Birmingham (2010), Galerie Fons Welters, Amsterdam (2009), Artspace, Sydney (2005), Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven, Museum voor Moderne Kunst, Arnhem, (2003), Art Foundation Xiamen, Frankfurter Kunstverein (both 2002). A selection of group exhibitions include: Six Possibilities for a Sculpture, La Loge, Brussels (2013); Beyond Imagination, Stedelijk Museum (2012); Secret Societies, Schirn Kunsthalle; The Dutch Identity?, Museum de Paviljoens, Almere (both 2011); The Knight’s Tour, Museum de Hallen, Haarlem (2009). Jennifer Tee has also participated in the Prague Triennale (2008), Auckland Triennial (2007), Gwangju Biennale (2006) and the Sao Paulo Biennial (2004). You are welcome to join us, along with the artist, for the opening of this exhibition, Jennifer Tee (NL), from 6pm – 8pm, on Thursday 29 August.


Coffee like no other Coffee of the highest order, coffee that delights: this is illy’s mission, passion and obsession. A simple idea created through complex means: eight decades of experience; unmatched knowledge of coffee biology and chemistry; unrivalled skill at roasting; the pioneering of innovative, enabling technologies; and a family’s entrepreneurial passion. There is a taste, a feel, an aroma that is all illy’s own. Velvety, immediately sweet, delicately balancing floral and fruity notes with caramel, toast and chocolate, naturally fragrant with aromas of almond and honey. You just might hold the sugar, for the very first time. This is balance that comes only from a blend: the singular illy blend of nine highest-order Arabica beans, selected and directly purchased by illy from farms spanning four continents. Each individual bean contributing to a greater whole, for the pleasure of those who appreciate all that coffee can and should be. In the cup, the illy blend becomes a symphony: rich, full, multi-faceted, yet subtle, comprised of immensely talented soloists, each coaxed to their finest performance under the hand of an expert conductor. Food Solutions are the Irish distributors of illy. www.coffee-ireland.com
