/Glitch FESTIVAL 2015: Ireland’s only Interactive Digital Arts Festival

RUA RED and MART

May to June 2015

This year RUA RED have invited Ciara Scanlan + Matthew Nevin of MART to collaborate on the annual digital arts festival /Glitch. This years /Glitch Festival investigates notions of moveable space from an augmented point of view. The curators presented the question “How can technology activate a more visceral connectivity from a virtual standpoint?” to a series of established and emerging Irish and international artists. The artists were encouraged to sample / experiment with both old and new technologies to investigate the influence of technology within space, reassessing what it is to be both local and yet hold an inter/national spatial autonomy.

 /Glitch 2015 is housed both in RUA RED & MART Galleries will feature interactive visual & sound artworks that will encourage the audience to engage and experiment with altered technologies. The curators have reconstructed a representational frame of The MART old fire station within RUA RED’s Gallery 1. Altering the traditional white cube to become host to a foreign venue, additionally some work will be displaced and part projected in both venues.

‘Dragons of Eden’ featuring work by Aoibheann Greenan {Gallery 1} and Terence Erraught {Gallery2} addresses mythological and real world societal challenges. The curators invited the artists to produce work that can provoke the limitations of the gallery environment, producing informative and experimental new work that can tease out radical ways of viewing and perceiving our culture and society. Greenan and Erraught have responded here with powerful creations that take on alternative perspectives on gender representation via symbols and icons of ancient cultures experienced through a schema of digital means.

Aoibheann Greenan presents The Eighth Seal, an installation and audio piece prompted by the Repeal the 8th movement and the ongoing struggle of Irish Women over the right to bodily autonomy. A radio interview reimagines the origins of Sheela na Gigs, ancient carvings scattered throughout Ireland depicting figures with exposed vulvas. Eschewing the tendency to interpret the Sheela through patriarchal narratives, the work proposes the symbol as both a harbinger of emancipation and metaphor for resistance. Esoteric and posthumanist motifs permeate the work, echoing the historical link between radical speculative fiction and movements for social change. The installation conjures a site for gathering, a space for consciousness raising, for invoking, for conspiring.

Terry Erraught’s work explores the masculine agenda of the contemporary artwork by addressing audiences increasingly desensitization of socio-political heinous events. In an era of instant digital media distribution, brutal violence appears to have become part of our daily routine, with audiences becoming increasingly indifferent. By engaging with mainstream media but using a primitive, ritualistic approach, Erraught attempts to connect with world events as they occur and enter our psyche. ‘Composition’ is a durational digital video painting, rather than an episodic performance, which contains references to multiple catastrophic events in recent times. Through a recognisable mythological and art historical aesthetic, the artist draws on his own personal experiences by physically manifesting into each of the constituent characters and situations in the video work. This can also be seen in Erraught’s second piece Saturn (The world revolves around me) which is a smaller installation or 3D painting recorded from a live performance. It is heavily influenced by Goya’s black paintings which portray Goya’s embittered attitude toward mankind, and struggles with panic, fear and hysteria specifically ‘Saturn Devouring his Son 1820-23’.
