‘190 A Retelling’  – Visual Art Exhibition

The MART Gallery, 190a Rathmines Road Lower, Rathmines, Dublin 6.

MART invited the local public, former residents of the building and The Dublin Fire Brigade to attend and tell a story or two about “190a”, and visit the new incarnation as a Gallery and meet the new residents, Artists. 

 

‘The house shelters day-dreaming, the house protects the dreamer, the house allows one to dream in peace.”  Gaston Gachelard – The poetics of space.

MART curators Matthew Nevin & Ciara Scanlan have invited 5 artists to make site-specific works around the newly renovated 150 year old fire station in Rathimnes. Through the re-appropriation of old forgotten artefacts and found objects of the building a visual conversation will tell the story of the generations of uses and lives that passed through. The building itself has morphed through many forms: a library, a home, storehouse, fire station, The Civil Defence, pigeon layer and finally The MART Gallery and Studios. The exhibition will host interactive and temporal sculptures, sound recordings and photography based on the history of the building itself and the power of place to hold memory and drive the imagination.

Artists: Sinead Bligh, Gerard Erraught, Jessica Kelly, Ciara Scanlan, Emily O’Callaghan, Jim O’Callaghan, Trish McAdam.

Leonie Connellan

Leonie Connellan is a print-based artist originally from Melbourne, Australia, now living in Dublin. Her work explores the relationship between science and storytelling, with the ultimate goal of creating a sense of scientific understanding, wonder and curiosity about the structure of the universe and our place in it. crumpart.net


Collette Flores

I am based in Dublin and create Bespoke lampshades from vintage, antique and newly designed digitally printed fabrics. xochique.com


Niamh Hannaford

Niamh was born in 1987. She was 3.16 kg, 54 cm. She had a small tuft of curls on top of her head, which her mother dressed in a bow. In 2017 she weighs 70 kg and is 174 cm. Her hair is shoulder length and she still wears a bow. She uses her work to explore her inner fears with a playful curiosity. Still, she is constantly terrified. niamhhannaford.com


Joe Lynch

I'm Joe, Dublin based illustrator/painter. I graduated from animation (2011) and illustration (2014) in BCFE. Previously I worked as a graphic designer, fashion design intern and a tattoo apprentice so my work takes extensive influence from these past ventures. I've taken part in two collaborative exhibitions to date which were held in Ballyfermot library and Farmleigh, the goal of this new venture is to exhibit more and have fun doing it. Instagram.


Alice Brady

Alice is a passionate embroiderer whose love of place and detail is central to her work. She uses her extensive knowledge of embroidery and textile techniques to create contemporary wall art. Alice is interested in the environments around us – more specifically, the aspects that get overlooked or taken for granted. Her embroideries capture these details in order to create pieces which accurately convey the atmosphere of a particular place. Currently she is working on a series of pieces inspired by Dublin, the place she knows better than any other. The county of Dublin is a perfect example of how the landscape transforms from rural to urban, and it is this dialogue which is celebrated in Alice’s work. Through a process of drawing, photographing and editing, Alice selects the colours, textures and motifs that define a place. Each location that Alice works from inspires the techniques and materials she uses. An array of traditional hand embroidery techniques are presented in a contemporary context. Alice graduated from the Royal School of Needlework in 2017 with a BA in Hand Embroidery. She has worked on a number of high profile projects such as the Nicholas Oakwell for GREAT Britain Campaign and the HBO Game of Thrones Hardhome Embroidery. In 2016, her work was displayed in the Craft Study Centre in Farnham as part of a work in progress show running alongside the ‘Make It OK?’ exhibition. bealicetextiles.wixsite.com/be-alice
