A VERY NORMAL PLACE ADAM PATTERSON

/

30 JUN - 4 AUG

The evening helicopters drone overhead – out of reach like an annoying fly. Dogs are barking, big like lions, just another night in Jobstown. I have fallen in love with the life that flows through this place. There is an innocent beauty casting back to older times. Shooting in black and white I am trying to do this justice, a method of preserving the timelessness of the street games children play, of the friendliness people are offering me here. - Adam Patterson, 17th March 2012

Adam Patterson A Very Normal Place

A VERY NORMAL PLACE

/

30 JUN -4 AUG

A Very Normal Place is a photographic exhibition by Northern Ireland photographer Adam Patterson about his time in West Tallaght. Gallery Two will feature three short films that follow moments in the lives of west Tallaght residents that Adam met during his time in the area, while Gallery One will feature over 25 photographic prints shot entirely on film, in black and white. “I arrived with ideas and plans. Much had been written about WWest Tallaght and my aim was not to correct or offer an alternate view. The purpose was to record my personal time living in the area, through those that opened their doors to me. This work is about people - their faces, their gaze and their thoughts. The series depicts moments of my place in that corner of time. In every sense it is a collaboration with locals that took me into their world. These photographs could not have been formed without their guidance and trust. I have always found photography to be a fantastic excuse to learn about people’s lives. Often my resulting photographs resemble a brief sketch of my limited time attempting to understand them. People are often cautious about a stranger with a camera and yet with a careful approach and explanation doors will open. This was certainly the case in Jobstown, Killinarden, Fettercain and Brookfield – areas I was warned about by people I met in other parts of Dublin. It is sad that infrequent and unfortunate events involving crime and violence can cast a dark show over an entire area. The reality is that these places are primarily ordinary in every sense, with people just trying to live their lives. Issues arise because others form judgment without taking the time to witness this normality. If they were to walk the streets and talk to the residents, they would likely meet people very much like themselves. These photographs are an attempt to portray the routine, the moments that form a sense of what a place really means.” - Adam Patterson

“I thank the people in these photographs. They each gave me something of themselves for no reason at all.” - Adam Patterson Dates: Times:

PLASTIC ART

18 AUG -13 OCT

Curated by Hilary Murray (2012 Curatorial Residency) Plastic Art sees the commissioning of new work, by artists Barbara Knezevic, Maghnild Ophøld and Seamus McCormack. The exhibition explores the notion of the biological network through its manipulations of form, plasticity through the re-working of material, seriality and the interplay of physical change with recognition. The artist makes use of well-known memory images and changes the form of each to allow for other manipulations and remembrances to occur, as such, this interplay itself mimics biological plasticity. The creation of new form through the re-working and optimisation of old form creates a platform for the viewing of art on an intimate cellular level. Barbara Knezevic is an Australian born artist practicing in Dublin. She is the recipient of a Project studio at Temple Bar Gallery and Studios, and the South Dublin County Council’s Artist’s Bursary Award. Barbara is the co-editor of the online publication Paper Visual Art Journal. Magnhild Opdøl was born in Norway and is now living and working in Ireland. In 2011 she was awarded the Tony O’Malley Residency. She has widely exhibited both in Ireland and internationally, and her work is included in many public and private collections. Seamus McCormack attended Limerick School of Art & Design and received a First Class BA Fine Art from DIT. He has recently completed a Masters in Fine Art at NCAD. Recent shows include Treading the boards, Ballina Arts Centre, Mayo and I’m Crying & Everything, Signal Arts Centre, Bray. He has also shown extensively in group shows in the UK and Ireland Dates: Times:

OVER 55’S FILM

/

THE ARTIST Outside a movie premiere, enthusiastic fan Peppy Miller literally bumps into the swashbuckling hero of the silent film, George Valentin. The star reacts graciously and Peppy plants a kiss on his cheek as they are surrounded by photographers. The headlines demand: “Who’s That Girl?” and Peppy is inspired to audition for a dancing bit-part at the studio. However as Peppy slowly rises through the industry, the introduction of talking-pictures turns Valentin’s world upside-down. Silent movie star George Valentin bemoans the coming era of talking pictures and fades into oblivion and self-destruction, but finds sparks with Peppy Miller, a young dancer lighting up talkies like no one else.

HB: Did you find it hard coming from an apprenticeship where you’re working for someone else to setting up your own business? RS: Of course. It’s very challenging. You have to do everything yourself, I thought it was easy as making and selling, but there’s alot more involved in running a business! HB: What is a normal day in your studio like? RS: I start off with a bit of admin like checking emails and orders. I then have a cup of tea from the RUA RED café, sit down at my work bench and begin making orders for my retail outlets or design and make new pieces. HB: Where do you get your inspiration from? RS: I’m interested in architecture and sculpture, you can see these influences in my pieces. I try take influence from everything around me

TENANT SPOTLIGHT Interviewed by Heather Byrne

GARBO PRODUCTIONS

MARGARET CALLAN BERGIN

HB: Who are you? MCB: I’m a playwright director /producer/actor and artistic director of Garbo Productions Theatre Company. Garbo’s main activities include Theatre production, Theatre-in education plays, drama and theatre based programmes and community projects. I also have ambitions to bring Garbo into the film production arena; we co-produced our first short ‘Ray’ in 2010 with ‘Hoohox Productions’ as part of the Darlklight Film Festival. HB: What are you working on right now? MCB: Actually it’s been our most exciting year to date. I’ve just been accepted onto the artist’s panel of Dublin City Council. I‘ve also just recently reached completion on 3 major projects. I was commissioned to write direct and produce my play ‘Rudy’ by Dublin City Public libraries. This whole process started in 2011 and climaxed recently with a really successful tour of the play in libraries as part of the ‘Graffiti Art or Vandalism?’ for DCPL. I’ve also just launched a book of stories ‘Tales of Kishogue Cross’ which was the climax of an intercultural programme for Lucan East Educate Together School in which I co –authoured with parents from the school. Also our schools drama workshop programme ‘Garbo Code Name Green Warp’ climaxed with a parade of flags by the school students involved in the S.D.C.C chambers to launch Eco week 2012. Now I am looking at funding for new projects for 2013 setting up drama workshops in RUA RED and doing research on ‘No Way Out’ a teen novel which I hope to self-publish via the web. HB: You work with a lot of children, I imagine this can be quite rewarding. MCB: After a performance of Rudy in the ILAC library a women approached me and said a teenager she knew had gone through a terrible time because of peer pressure and that she


22 thought the play was really powerful because it so clearly showed the impact that peer pressure had on teenager’s lives while still giving them hope. This teenager in question had sadly apparently taken their own life. She said she thought the play should be put on in every school in Ireland. This meant so much to me; I want my plays to give a clear voice to people especially those who can’t always speak for themselves. For the full interview visit www/ruared.ie/tenantspotlight Garbo Productions Theatre Company was founded in 1999 by writer, actor, director & theatre maker Margaret Callan Bergin. Garbo’s most recent success was the production ‘Rudy’ written and directed by Margaret, this play was commissioned by Dublin City Public libraries as part of their ‘Graffiti Art or Vandalism?’ programme 2012. Garbo also recently launched ‘Tales of kishogue Cross’ an intercultural collaborative book of stories written by Margaret and the parents from Lucan East Educate Together Nth. School.
