/Glitch Festival : ‘Risk Assessment’

RUA RED & MART Galleries

May – June 2016

Ireland’s leading Digital Arts Festival that brought together artists utilising media and technology, hosted in two Dublin based galleries. RUA RED Gallery Tallaght & The Mart Gallery Rathmines.

/Glitch Festival 2016 was hosted in two Dublin based galleries. RUA RED Gallery Tallaght & The Mart Gallery Rathmines. Curators Ciara Scanlan and Matthew Nevin devised a risk based curatorial outline for an exhibition format with parameters, which the participating artists could work within or destroy. The festival focussed on live durational events and collaboration between digital and live processes.

The curators chose predominately female participants, performers and visual artists to make work exploring the notion of danger and risk within art making and society. The participants produced live experiential artworks and performances that evolved over the week of the festival. The curators created a stage for the artists to react to: a gallery ‘under construction’. Machinery and objects associated with building industry occupied the space ready for alteration, interaction and modifying their mechanics, aesthetics and behaviours.

The artworks were designed to react and interplay with this spectacle, andcreate interactive ‘dangerous & reactionary’ artworks, utilising engineering and arduino programming to enhance the user experience and interaction with the audience. The echoes of the collapse of the construction industry in Ireland created a society in fear of a repeat bubble already forming in the city. A hesitation to taking risks has meant many suburban and rural towns lay dormant, producing a culture of a ‘people in waiting’. For /Glitch 2016 the curators wanted to challenge this fear and become cultural risk activators, inviting artists who work under this umbrella to push the ‘safety’ of the gallery into a challenging experience for artists, curators and audience.

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
