Our next exhibition the group show A MacGuffin and Other Things is presented by guest curator, Vaari Claffey.

Project Arts Centre
Coinciding with the exhibition A MacGuffin and Some Other Things, Project Arts Centre continues its new experimental Grotto series, with an installation by David Fagan entitled Sensation. Fagan works with the idea of a 'dirty work' - an object that is aesthetically pleasurable and ready for display, but that is also self-consciously underdeveloped as a finished artwork.
In this way, Fagan poses the question: 'how and where does one display a guilty pleasure?' Engaging with the idea of the cabinet as a less salubrious, low-rent space, Fagan re-imagines it as prime real estate for a peepshow. More

28th Apr 2012 (Sat) - 10th Jun 2012 (Sun)
Fiona Larkin's work arises from an interest in the lives of others. In discovering ways of understanding and engaging with others, the work finds form in a variety of media from action to video to drawing. The camera is used to engage reflexively and directly with viewers. The work surrenders to the determination of significant chance elements, for example: a stranger marked with an unusual emblem, a collection of 'yellow' images gathered through casual sightings, or to the kindness of strangers. Larkin's interventions become connective tissue between action, material production and the viewer's access to the story. More
