Create are delighted to announce that Nic Green will launch From Context To Exhibition 2015 in Artbox on 30 April. Nic is in Dublin as part of the Live Collision 2015 Festival and was a guest tutor on the Learning Development Programme in 2010.
From Context to Exhibition, which takes place annually, is a contemporary look at how artists begin to translate collaborative processes and practice into the context of the white space. The work presented forms part of The Learning Development Programme, an experiential learning programme for student artists, managed by Create
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).
