Carl Giffney (1983) is an Irish artist whose main working method is performative research. Most of his film “Iarnród” consists of footage that the artist recorded while having afternoon naps and driving. During the naps we hear the sound of snooker in the background, during the driving we hear Irish radio. How could these be connected? Is an artist who works with performative research also working when he is sleeping or driving?
In the lecture “THARLA TIMPISTE / AN ACCIDENT HAPPENED” Carl Giffney covers topics including national coin design, childhood memories and accidents that have happened. The lecture is in English and lasts about an hour.
The Art Hall exhibition “The Art of Being Good” will be concluded with a three-day public program including performances, tours and film screenings. “The Art of Being Good” is an attempt to produce an exhibition suitable for a world struggling with the current global crisis. The finissage program also directs special attention towards the possibility of being good and ecologically responsible in the circumstances of certain ruin.
Admission to all events with an exhibition ticket. A single ticket is valid the whole weekend.
