Nic Green

Nic Green's broad and comprehensive practice spans award-winning dance/theatre performance, varied community and public art projects, research-based pedagogical and at the heart of her work. Her research focuses on the development of a reciprocal, relational approach when working with people, place, context or material. She remains committed to developing creative work which can be named as ecological in it’s nature, in the sense that her practice focuses on the study of relationships; the meaning and nature of which emerge through immersive, time and place-based processes. The political aim of this work is to (re) understand and (re) present the narrative of the individual as a part of a mutually dependent ecological paradigm, or gestalt ontology.

In 2010 Nic completed an MSc in Human Ecology for which she conducted an original study on the development and understanding of ecological performance practices.

She has also completed the Natural Change Facilitators Course, and extensive study in Vedanta and Yogic Philosophy. Her work has been commissioned and presented both nationally and internationally to critical acclaim and she is best known for her award-winning Trilogy (*****) which received an estimated 1000 participants, receiving the Arches Award for Theatre Directors, a Dublin Fringe Festival Award and a Herald Angel. Recently she created Vivarium for the Albert Drive Project (an audio experience for one person at a time inside the walls of a Victorian garden), MAKE SPACE for ArtsAdmin (a month long residency on Hackney city farm with 12 makers aged between 17 and 24) and is showing Fatherland at various venues (a dance performance about claiming land as paternity in the absence of a human).

From Context to Exhibition is a contemporary look at how artists seek to translate collaborative processes and practice into the context of the white space. The work presented in From Context to Exhibition forms part of The Learning Development Programme, an experiential learning programme for student artists in fine art courses who want to engage with communities of place and/or interest, and learn more about collaborative arts practice. Each year the student artists work with different communities around Dublin to co create artwork.

This year the diverse work presented encompasses broad themes of collaboration, some which focus on community as source material; and some which is the result of community as co-creator or as communities of interest The students worked with a variety of groups and organisations including a recycling centre; temporary skate park, animal rescue centre and LBGTQ group around marriage equality.

Discussion Event

From Context to Exhibition 2014

a group show from The Learning Development Programme 2014, managed by Create

Partners: NCAD, IADT and Dublin City Arts Office/ the LAB

Date:    8 May
Time:    2-5
Venue:  The LAB, Foley St Dublin 1

Keynote: Dr Aislinn O'Donnell, Lecturer in Philosophy of Education; Mary Immaculate College (University of Limerick)

Panel: Artists Seoidin O’Sullivan; Vukasin Nedeljkovic; Sarah Browne; curator Rosie Lynch;
Chair: Sheena Barrett, Dublin City Council Arts Office

In tandem with From Context to Exhibition 2014, there will be a discussion event examining the kinds of questions that the students had to grapple with during the Learning Development Programme as well the broader issues of how collaborative arts practice is framed and the complexity of reflecting the processes associated with collaborative art making, in particular as regards to duration. The panel discussion will feature artists who have engaged with medium to long duration work. Also under consideration will be the issue of becoming embedded within a particular community; how does that effect the level of engagement, the blurring of boundaries between key maker and co creators? And how can cultural institutions, arts administrators and organisations best support artists in this type of collaborative practice?

Exhibition: From Context to Exhibition 2014 runs 1 May (Preview) to 9 May at Unit 3, James Joyce Street, Dublin 1.
Hours: Wednesdays to Saturdays 1st- 10th May, 12-4pm. Outside those hours by appointment: 01-4736600 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Biographies

Sheena Barrett is curator of The LAB Gallery and an Arts Officer with Dublin City Council Arts Office

Sarah Browne is an artist based in Dublin. Her research-based practice investigates the materiality of how we communicate and create meaning through exchange and transaction. This process often centres on the production, distribution and use of particular objects for different situations and locales; objects which tend to be used to lever discussions about economy, value and politics for publication and broadcast elsewhere. Recent collaborations include choreography for Fearghus Ó Conchúir’s Cure, which premiered last year at the Dublin Dance Festival, and Remembering Gray, a project involving poet Alice Lyons and architect Eileen Gray which was exhibited in different versions at the Grazer Kunstverein, Austria and IMMA, Dublin. In 2013 she was one of four artists working on The Legacy Project, a commission for the National Women’s Council of Ireland. Her solo exhibition, Hand to Mouth, is currently on view at CCA Derry-Londonderry. In 2009 she co-represented Ireland at the 53rd Venice Biennale with Gareth Kennedy and their collaborative practice, Kennedy Browne. Website.

Rosie Lynch is a curator living in Callan, Co. Kilkenny. She works collaboratively with Hollie Kearns out of a shared office at Callan Workhouse. They are currently coordinating Nimble Spaces (2013-2014), a long-term process of collaboration between artists, architects and adults with an intellectual disability and Forecast a series of activities exploring participative planning in rural towns, taking place in five towns in Co. Kilkenny in 2014. Recent projects include Workhouse Assembly (2013), a twelve-day participative research workshop exploring the complex social history and future development possibilities of a semi-derelict wing of the Callan Workhouse and Landing Place (2013); a series of commissioned new works relating to public access and engagement at a series of industrial heritage sites in Dublin Bay. Rosie is a co-founder of Commonage, a community based organisation, which commissions and provides a critical platform for contemporary art and architecture practice in the public realm. Rosie has been involved in a number of long-term independent curatorial projects including Unbuilding (2010) and Dig where you stand (2012). From 2005 until 2007 she worked with Ard Bia Gallery in Galway and subsequently devised their pilot year artist-in-residence programme in Berlin. Rosie has a BA in Fine Art from NCAD and completed an MA in Visual Arts Practice from IADT in 2011.

Vukasin Nedeljkovic is an artist based in Dublin.His work to date in Ireland explores themes of exile, displacement, trauma and memory. He works with photography, video and audio.His body of work on conditions in direct provision centres Asylum Archive is a digital and philosophical meditation on limited freedom and addresses structures of power. Asylum Archive is not conceived as a singular art project that stands ‘outside of society’ engaged in an internal conversation. Rather it is a platform open for dialogue and discussion inclusive to individuals who have experienced a sense of sociological/geographical ‘displacement’, social trauma and violence. It is an act of solidarity to bring a different perspective on the life of people who came to Ireland to seek protection.

Asylum Archive’s objective is to collaborate with asylum seekers, artists, academics, civil society activists and immigration lawyers, amongst others, with a view to creating an interactive documentary cross-platform online resource. Asylum Archive deploys a combination of practice-based fieldwork research methods, including photographs of direct provision centres and the use of found and abandoned artefacts, video and audio records, documentation of reports, scholarly essays and newspaper articles on the subject of asylum in Ireland. His research interests and preoccupations include representation of the marginalized and consideration of the ethical issues which occur when those who are oppressed fear punishment. Also how is historical and social memory preserved and transformed by photographs?

Vukasin Nedeljkovic is currently SUSI funded PHD student at Centre for Transcultural Research and Media Practice at Dublin Institute of Technology. He graduated in 2003 from the Academy of Arts, Belgrade with a BA in Photography and he has a Masters in Visual Arts, Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art Design and Technology.

Aislinn O’Donnell received her PhD in philosophy from the University of Warwick and currently lectures in Philosophy of Education in Mary Immaculate College (University of Limerick. O'Donnell aims to democratise philosophy and expand our conception of the “Academy”, and the role of the Academy in society. She has been teaching philosophy classes, developing collaborative research practice and writing with people in a range of informal settings, including closed institutions. Instead of treating people as research subjects, these spaces become research sites offering opportunities for co-enquiry in philosophy and cognate disciplines. This approach is influenced by contemporary art practice and research. Recent and forthcoming articles include: “Beyond Sexuality: Of Love, Failure and Revolutions” (2012), “Transformative Education” (2012), “Love, Unpredictability and Educational Encounter” (2013), “Shame is revolutionary” (2013), “Thinking-in-concert” (2013), and with Jonathan Cummins, “Speaking the truth to power: parrhesia, critical inquiry and education in prisons” (2014)

Her other philosophical interests include Spinoza and the Spinozist heritage; the relationship between passivity, receptivity, vulnerability and ethical life; relational ontologies; and the relationship between institutions and the production of subjectivity, drawing on the work of Foucault, Deleuze, Oury, and Guattari.

Seoidín O'Sullivan's art practice investigates socio-political and ecological narratives which she re-presents in critically engaged and poetic ways through a variety of media. Recent concerns involve an interest in ideas of ‘the commons’ and the notion of shared assets. Her practice supports sustainable models within various ecological contexts and addresses issues of land use, lost knowledge, bio diversity and social justice.
Seoidin grew up in Kitwe, Zambia and later lived in Durban, South Africa where she completed a degree in Fine Art in 2000. She has been living and practicing as a professional artist in Dublin since then. She completed a Masters in Fine Art at the National college of Art and Design, Dublin (2005- 2007) where she researched the cultural challenge environmental sustainability poses to contemporary art. Seoidín is an educator with Higher Diploma's in both International Development Studies and Third Level Teaching (DIT 2010). Her practice, both collaborative and individual, has been funded through various Arts Council awards and she has also exhibited widely.

From Context to Exhibition is a contemporary look at how artists seek to translate collaborative processes and practice into the context of the white space. The work presented in From Context to Exhibition forms part of The Learning Development Programme, an experiential learning programme for student artists in fine art courses who want to engage with communities of place and/or interest, and learn more about collaborative arts practice. Each year the student artists work with different communities around Dublin to co create artwork.

This year the work presented encompasses broad definitions of collaboration, some which focuses on community as source material; or community as co creators or communities of interest; some which takes a more philosophically tangential approach to ideas of collaboration.

Groups, and co-creators the student artists have linked with include a group of performers coming from dance and theatre backgrounds; commuters on Dun Laoghaire to Connolly Station route; members of East Wall Sailing Club workshop; philosophy students; charity shop workers/volunteers; sex workers; and an investigation of the effects of memory from experience of Alzheimer patients.

A themed discussion event will take also place on 8 May.
