FOREWORD The opportunity to curate Tulca 06 has been a genuinely inspiring experience. For Sarah and myself, it has meant a ‘getting to know Galway’, a chance to make connections - with

Tulca hopes to make new relationships happen between art and audience, between artists and viewer/participants.

artists, curators, arts workers and the place itself - and to tap into a keenly creative energy that is emerging within the visual arts scene here. For Áine, who has been involved in previous Tulcas, the opportunity to continue a process, to build on the good work already achieved by Tulca and to establish a commitment to live arts performance in Galway has been critical. Throughout our visits we have been taken by a sense of positive enthusiasm and belief in ‘possibility’ that propels an interconnection between artists on the ground, an openness to experimentation and the inclusion of ideas and artists from elsewhere. If there is a cultural shift away from the predominance of a Dublin-centric Ireland, perhaps it is to be found in places like Galway where the intimate scale and peripheral location creates a good home for a new generation of artists to commit locally and connect internationally. Tulca’s programme includes group exhibitions, solo shows, talks and residencies with a special focus on live art performance. With more than 90 participating artists, who range from students to those who have considerable years of experience and practice, the programme combines invited artists - Irish and International - artists selected through an open submission process, as well as a number of new works

Courtesy: Kevin Kavanagh Gallery, Dublin BRIAN DOYLE’s work explores sound, music and sculpture as independent forces. He is most compelled by the space where sound, images and objects interact and intersect. Intentionally combining a visual object with sound presents an almost limitless set of further metaphoric possibilities. DAMIAN MAGEE WEST LATITUDE Two paintings of Ireland viewed as an island from Galway Bay. Locating the islands in objective space, Magee creates documentary/historical context with which to explore the relationships between geography and social, cultural and political identities.

ANITA DELANEY DECEMBER A video work that layers the familiar with the incongruous. A dozen delightful dancers perform a routine with military precision until the thuds of their limbs descends into a menacing frenzy.

Anita Delaney

VERA KLUTE PAPERBACK investigates how individual space is not bound to location but is what we carry with us. A protagonist travels through a fictional world that seems to self create and then disappear again. MAGGIE MADDEN MINIATURE CITY Madden’s sculptural work explores the contrast that exist between the urban and rural landscapes. It represents cities as delicately endlessly expanding outwards, engulfing plots of land and taking possession of space. Vera Klute

GRETA FALVEY BODY STACK This piece is made up of 632 shirts rolled and stacked. It is part of a larger body of work entitled, ‘Shirts’. Constructing objects in a new way, touches, for Falvey, on change and freedom and ways of making the mundane into the beautiful. PAUL VIVIAN’s work reframes small acts of economy; temporary communications and homemade signs. He works with what is both

incidental and uncomplicated. He translates these communications by making his own facsimiles potentially giving them an unexpected legitimacy or improved purpose.

EILEEN HEALY DISCLOATION LANDSCAPE (I,II & III); A VISUAL STUTTER 1970, 1985, 1996 One of the burdens of thinking about landscape is to acknowledge it in its full complexity by examining the many tensions present in its structure. Culturally we repeatedly seek to tame, domesticate and articulate the term ‘landscape’. By its use of ‘found images’ and video, this body of work offers a visual consideration of the genre as a dynamic, unstable, contested and

Eileen Healy

intriguing medium, one which is consistently dismantled and reconfigured as a ‘visual stuttering’. AILEEN LAMBERT FROST SHADOW, MOON SHADOW Lambert’s work is concerned with the relationship which the body has with its environment, and represents a claiming of space. Using simple gestures and interventions, she traces her body’s presence on the landscape, expressing and documenting a particular place and time. Aileen Lambert

FIONA O CONNOR 1 + 1 = A LATENT LANDSCAPE The central concern of this work is to render a certain invisibility visible, to investigate spaces between places. This work explores the idea that although something ‘disappears’ or ‘wears away’ it can still be present in another form. BARRY W. HUGHES MAL DE SALVO The motivation for this work comes from a statement by Sigmund Freud dirt is just matter in the wrong place. Mal de Salvo is a character

Fiona O Connor

caught up in the process of trying to free himself from his own psychological dirt and tries to rationalise the irrational by performing certain acts.

NUNS ISLAND STUDIO VIDEO PROJECTION SERIES 23 Nuns Island | Map No. 2 | 10th–26th November (except Saturdays)

STUART SIMPSON SMILE: FORMAGGIO CON QUESO An examination of 21st century travel, holiday memento and the pitfalls of not keeping a straight face. Back in June 2004, over a two week period, seven European capital cities were visited in an attempt to investigate both tourism and the rituals of being a tourist. Central to the project was the capturing of the smiling process performed by tourists for the camera; that preparatory moment before and after the ‘cheese’ drops from the lips. Stuart Simpson

JOE DUFFY BLOCK Block is a video piece concerned with the relationship of individuals to contemporary urban environment through the modernist architectural living spaces of a tower block in Salford, UK. An observational gaze on social habitus implicates the viewer in a dialogue with surveillance, monitoring and spatial dynamics. The narrative space of the tower block is revealed through the light movements as residents travels through its interior Joe Duffy

COLETTE LEWIS & COLLEEN BARTLEY EXHIBITIONIST Filmed on location at Tate Modern in London this work explores choreography in social spaces in making visible the invisible theatre of social interaction. The artists incorporated the ‘natural’ movements of the incidental public with their own ‘performed’ movements within the framed spaces.

MOON NA (SOUTH KOREA) AGAINST GOD VIDEO On a day of heavy rain I shoot her water pistol into the sky. Moon Na’s work chases the politics, which hides in daily life, and the matter she faces when representing herself as woman, Asian and human being in the world. She uses her body as the main drawing tool in the video to show controversial issues by focusing on very small differences or slight movement. THERESA NANIGIAN TWO WEEKS AND SIXTEEN SUNDAY’S INBETWEEN VIDEO This work explores how we attempt (or don’t) to reconcile the vast differences

Moon Na

between day-to-day human concerns and major world events. KAIJA POIJULA (FINLAND) MEMENTO MORI Life and death, rites of passage, the human condition and rituals in our everyday lives are explored in the work of Kaijija Poijula. Here she searches for the material that would be just enough to tell the story behind the work. JAMES RICKS (USA) FORTUNE 500, AN EXPLORATION OF IMPERIALISM IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM, COLLAGE Discrimination, harassment, racism, poverty and violence are some of the themes explored in an installation by Jim Ricks. In his three-part installation he depicts an unsettled and complex portrait of America that focuses on the interrelationship

distinction between ‘high’ and ‘low’ art. This approach allows for multiple readings to be made and invites the audience to consider the different layers complicit in generating the message. STEPHEN GUNNING LEAVE TO REMAIN Stephen Gunning’s Leave to Remain is a short film shot in St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin during the recent Afghan Hunger Strike. KAREN CONWAY’S TRANSCENDENCE - ‘PRETEXT 1’ TRANSCENDENCE ‘PRETEXT 11’ Conway’s paintings make reference to the 19th century German philosopher Arthur Stephen Gunning

Schopenhauer’s seminal work ’The World as Will and Representation - Volume 1’. Schopenhauer’s aesthetics flow from his doctrine of the primacy of the Will as the thing in itself, the ground of life and all being; and from his judgement that the Will is evil. Schopenhauer held that art offered a way for people to temporarily escape servitude to the Will. PAUL MCAREE & MONA CASEY DEEP IN THE WOODS McAree and Casey’s Goth horror kitsch installation juxtaposes a canonical sense of art history with meaningless cultural derivatives. Their installation includes a life-size stag and three video works.

PIERRE HUYGHE (FRANCE) THIS IS NOT A TIME FOR DREAMING 2004 16mm film transferred to digital beta; color, sound, 24 minutes Courtesy: Marian Goodman Gallery, New York Harvard University felt the need for a visual arts department that would serve its aesthetic and intellectual ideals. Le Corbusier was commissioned. The Long negotiation with the administration around the creative process gave birth to a book by Eduard Sekler. In 2004. Pierre Huyghe was invited to do a work in relation to the building, and the architect’s turbulent misadventures resonated with his own difficulty meeting their expectations. Sekler’s book then contributed to the writing of a puppet musical, placing the two situations in parallel. NUI Galway Gallery, Quadrangle | 11am–6pm Mon–Sat Pierre Huyghe

KASPER AKHØJ PEDERSON (DENMARK) UNTITLED (SCHINDLER/GRAY) 2006 A programmed slide installation rethinking the histories of two early modern houses: Eileen Gray's E.1027 in Roquebrune - Cap Martin, France (1926-1929), and Rudolph M. Schindler’s Kings Rd. House in Hollywood (1921-1922). Quadrangle, NUI Galway | 11am–6pm Mon–Sat

Kasper Akhøj Pederson

As the first houses which both architects built for themselves, these houses became the territory of professional and personal conflicts, materialized in radical transformations on the fabric of the buildings. The piece presents some of the narratives attached to these buildings as they converge and diverge, following closely related paths, albeit in opposite directions. Schindler's house was built as a radical experiment in gender equality and sexual liberation through floor planning - probably the first house ever designed for swinging. Villa E.1027's story is better known. Eileen Gray built it together with her friend Jean Badovici as a response and critique of the ideas of Le Corbusier, who later, without permission, painted 8 murals in the house, and called them "Graffiti a Cap Martin". If we think of a building as a text or a field of discourse, we can think of these houses as palimpsests, whereby one erases a text in order to write another.

KAREN CONWAY AN ENQUIRY INTO THE NATURE OF CREATIVITY AS A DEFENCE If creative work protects a man against mental illness, it is a small wonder that he pursues it with avidity... (Anthony Storr) Conway’s drawings and paintings are an investigation of theories both psychological and aesthetic and the philosophical writings of Anthony Storr. Karen Conway

KEITH NEVIN ‘NO. 2840’ The paintings allude to markings or imprints of the mind that are reflected in our negotiation of exterior spaces. LEAH BEGGS Her current work concerns the surrounding landscape and environmental effects in both rural and urban contexts; Although the subject matter can be recognised as ‘landscape’, it has an abstract quality to it. Aerial views mixed with head on perspectives. The basic elements of the ‘landscape’ are broken down into more simplified forms; the land, the sea, buildings, roads, lakes, etc, from here these components take on a life of their own through experimentation and manipulation of paint.

THÓRUNN EYMUNDARDÓTTIR (SHELTER) A SACRED SPACE Thórunn Eymundardóttir lives where she was planted in a small town in north-east Iceland. Her message is nostalgic of a paradise lost. Her art is the elevation of everyday life, lonesomeness and rejection, adolescence and allergy. She cuts hair, she makes pancakes, she builds cabins in the woods, she makes nests, she tried to live in a container until it became too complicated. What was supposed to be simple became too complicated, those are the paradoxes of her life. (Shelter) A Sacred Space is a performative installation composed of objects, video material and other mediums. The work deals with our common need for shelter and how we tend to seek what we believe to be safe. (Shelter) A Sacred Space is Thórunn Eymundardóttir’s first exhibition in Ireland.

ROÍSÍN COYLE LOST AT SEA Roísín Coyle’s Lost at Sea collaboration with poet Steve Murray continues with a body of work she created earlier this year for Project 06. Coyle’s interactive engaging and touching installation utilizes her skills as a visual story teller and creates an unusual setting, so people can escape from everyday normalities into a little world of stories, animation and music.

TULCALIVE Saturday 18th & 25th Nun’s Island Studios & Off site

Tulcalive aims to incite and thrill audiences for experimental, live performance work on two Saturdays (18th & 25th) in November. The line up of events include cabaret style, stand-up monologues; forms of poetic physical theatre using the body as language; performance installations with sculptural objects and video projections; live-mix sonic concerts; interactive engagements with the public and participatory actions. Some performances will happen in the dramatic black box of Nuns Island Studios, some will take place in the city’s public spaces, inserted into the theatre of everyday life. Artists from The Netherlands, UK and Ireland present their bodies, voices, gestures, life stories and relationships as the material and subject matter of their art exploring and challenging ideas of selfhood, sexuality, politics, social life, urban culture and the traditions of performance itself. All this served with a complimentary cup of ’Tea & Sympathy’, light refreshments with a performative twist! This is work that breathes fresh air into the conventions of performance, often with multiple beginnings and middles, refusing traditional forms of closure. In the resulting open space, we hope conversations will be freed to make new forms of awareness, experience and delight possible. ÁINE PHILLIPS

A sorrow from before that is still with you. Quirky and engaging memories of a Glaswegian childhood contrasted with acute observations of Iraqi culture. Using snatches of song, video footage and story telling in the tradition of Gaelic lamentation the show captures the joys remembered in dancing on her father’s feet and the intertwining dance of grown Iraqi men.

TULCALIVEOFFSITE PERFORMANCES

ÁINE PHILLIPS CARAVAN 1 Caravan is a little home from home, an odd but comforting refuge parked up outside Nuns Island Studio for the duration of Tulca. It functions as both a stage and a scene for live enactions and encounters between Áine and the audience for Tulcalive events. Caravan will include performances, video installations and ongoing curious engagements with the visitors to Nuns Island. The Caravan is an emblem of the body, a projection of the self out into the world, it is an outer, extra skin. It is a place for relationships - both intimate and public at the same time. A space to live in and a space to be Live. Áine Phillips

Commissioned by Tulca and the Arts Council of Ireland.

tulca talks AT NUN’S ISLAND STUDIO 11th November 2006

12.00 FRAGMENTED TALK BY EMMA HOULIHAN, TARA KENNEDY & JENNIE MORAN ON WORK OF MARJETICA POTRC During this summer Houlihan, Kennedy and Moran were participants at Foundation Antonio Ratti, xII advanced course in Visual Arts in Como, Italy. The workshop a laboratory of artistic and theoretical experimentation, was titled Fragmented City, and was led by artist and architect Marjetica Potrc. Portrc’s work focuses on the analyses of city development, energy resources, watering systems and urban agriculture experimentations. The informative talk / discussion will present ideas and theories associated with the Fragmented City workshop and introduces the work of Marjetica Potrc and that of other young artists who participated on the course. 14.00 JASON E BOWMAN, TULCA’S GUEST SPEAKER Jason E. Bowman trained as an artist prior to undertaking an M.phil in Media and Cultural Studies with a specific focus on Film and Television Theory and subsequently undertook Ph.D research in relation to the conditions of and for British Performance Art during the Thatcher era. As an artist he works only by commission and primarily by residency and has developed projects in the UK, the US, Canada, Egypt, The Netherlands and Belgium. As an artist with a curatorial practice he has developed curatorial initiatives focussing on the act of commissioning. He was co-curator for Scotland at the Venice Biennale 2005 and Selective Memory at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. He recently launched the first UK commission by Esther Shalev-Gerz after six years of development. His current curatorial research includes examining twenty-five years of media and legal consciousness in the UK in relation to the act of court drawing. With Julie Crawshaw and Rachel Bradley Jason is a co-director of Midwest which is a catalyst for communication and collaboration in the visual arts with a specific focus on artist-led culture. 16.00 HOME Home is where I want to be but I guess I’m already there Introduction talk by Gavin Murphy, lecture in Art History and Critical Theory at GMIT FINOLA JONES, JUSTIN MCKEON, BEN GEOGHEAGAN & AUSTIN IVERS, ÁINE PHILIPS, THÓRUNN EYMUNDARDÓTTIR

This session invites artists who have considered home as a starting point for ideas; as a place for showing art, or as a space to generate thinking and ideas on arts practice, The transformation of one’s home from private domestic place to semi-public space could be considered as much a generous and hospitable gesture, as it might be a pragmatic, creative and temporary solution - providing an entry point and means of participating within today’s competitive contemporary arts scene. Michelle Brown’s hospitality performance provides sustenance and tea for Tulca

tulca talks AT NUI GALWAY All at 7pm

WED 8TH NOVEMBER (EXTRA LUNCHTIME TALK) 1.10PM THÓRUNN EYMUNDARDÓTTIR (ICELAND) WED 8TH NOVEMBER | SEAN LYNCH Sean Lynch will present a lecture on some of his recent activities. Considering often-fragile stories and objects and magnifying traces of their existence, Lynch’s work suggests a speculative energy and a kind of everyday activism towards overlooked architectural, social and cultural histories. Celtic Revival architecture, Flann O’Brien, the world’s only statue of Bill Clinton, and Dana’s 1970s Eurovision triumph will all feature. Lynch will also present ideas for discussion that he is currently working on for an exhibition at Galway Arts Centre in 2007. WED 15TH NOVEMBER | ANNE SEAGRAVE Anne Seagrave is a visual artist creating movement-based live art performance/video and installation work for the past 20 years. In 2006 she accepted invitations to perform in Israel, Argentina, Uruguay, Spain, Finland, Poland, UK and Ireland and until mid December she is one of seven artists in residence at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin. She is currently the AHRC Research Fellow at the University of Ulster, and has lived mostly in Barcelona during the last 6 years. WED 22ND NOVEMBER | PAUL KELLY, SUBURBAN TO SUPERRURAL (VENICE ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE) For years Dublin’s suburban expansion has been springing up in places as far away as Wexford and Cavan. We are building houses at seven times the German rate. The evidence is visible from space. Will we be happy with more of the same between now and 2030? This is the territory Michelle Fagan, Paul Kelly and Gary Lysaght of FKL Architects - who won the Irish Architecture Foundation’s competition to curate Ireland’s entry to Venice Architecture biennale and to offer alternative visions for the Ireland of 2030. WED 29TH NOVEMBER | LIVE ARTS DEVELOPMENT AGENCY (UK) Launched in January 1999, the Live Art Development Agency is the leading development organisation for Live Art in London, offering a portfolio of Resources, Schemes, Projects and Initiatives for the support and development of Live Art practices and discourses. The Live Art Development Agency works in partnership with practitioners, organisations and institutions on curatorial initiatives; develops strategies for increasing popular and critical awareness; provides practical information and advice; and offers extensive opportunities for dialogue, debate, research and training.

tulca talks AT ARD BIA GALLERY In Conversation

In Conversation will be hosted by curator/visual artist Russell Hart. The conversational nature of each event will offer a more relaxed alternative to the conventional lecture and will encourage audience participationl. RACHAEL THOMAS, HEAD CURATOR IMMA 5pm Saturday 18th November 2006 SI SCHROEDER, EXPERIMENTAL MUSIC-MAKER (date to be announced) 4 WILLIAM STREET WEST, GALWAY IRELAND.

BROCHURE Brochure is a Tulca/Ard Bia Gallery publication seeking to highlight and comment on current activity in Galway’s contemporary art community. Brochure is a new initiative for Tulca and will continue to be published in 2007. If you are interested in submitting written texts or ideas please contact Ard Bia Gallery at ardbia@gmail.com

TULCA THINKER Katherine Waugh philosopher and Galway resident will offer a critical reflection and personal observation, generate a discussion and feed into future thinking. The idea behind this initiative is to enable a philosophical and practical reflection on possibilities and potentials around the framework of Tulca, without any rigid agenda. The Thinker might explore different realms of knowledge and how they might reflect into or underscore the visual arts in Galway. Tulca’s Thinker has liberty to ‘think’ from any perspective that is of interest to her.

TULCA RESIDENCIES The initiation of a residency programme for 2007 will include artists engaging with a specific context in Galway County. The residency programme is funded by Galway County Council’s percent for art programme and curated by Tulca. It signals Tulca’s commitment to investing in good work at a slower pace, and to developing Tulca’s commitment to continual programming throughout the year. All TULCA events, exhibitions, and talks are free.
