Stag & Deer “Home” at Photo Festival Ireland

Stag & Deer opened their exhibition, “Home”, in association with Photo Festival Ireland 2011, on Friday last, July 1st.

“… “Home” is a group exhibition showing work from national and international photographers Karen Miranda Rivadeneria and Dante Busquets. The theme is built around the domestic and the structure of life within a home.  We are very interested in the idea of a place that we call home and what encompasses home; the physical nature of the interior and exterior, human interactions/relations, memories and possessions. …”

The exhibition is running on North Great Georges St. in Dublin, and is a great opportunity to see these two photographers, and in a space you wouldn’t often have a chance to occupy.

The Photographers

Karen Miranda Rivadeneira is a 2005 graduate of the School of Visual Arts in New York City. Since 2006, she been working on projects that deal with identity and intimacy, collaborating with native communities and relatives as subjects for various photo-based projects. Karen’s work, Other Stories, some of which is showing in Home, was granted the New Works Photography Award by Enfoco.

Dante Busquets attended the San Francisco Art Institute where he studied photography with artists Pirkle Jones, Jack Fulton and Reagan Louie. ante recently received the grant Descubrimientos PHE México DF from the festival PhotoEspaña ’09, and the Leica Grant at FotoFest in Houston TX, USA, 2008.

The Curators

Stag & Deer is an exhibition-making project facilitating artists’ requirements by providing contemporary art space to exhibit work. We deal mainly with the medium of photography and our goal is in showcasing emerging contemporary art to the public. Our plan is to have exhibitions in temporary galleries and in site orientated locations.

The exhibition is open Tuesday to Saturday, 12 – 4pm, running until July 15th.

Stag and Deer present Season 2

Photographs by Maeve O’Neill

Winthrop Arcade, Winthrop Street, Cork(Adjacent to Oliver Plunkett Street across from the General Post Office)

Maeve O Neill’s work is more akin to dreaming than to documentation, offering thoughts of how we connect with the world we are situated in and how an image may work in our experience. Within this lies a detached quality which infers that the image is more than just data. What is intrinsic to her work is the inevitable, if impossible, wish to see things in totality; which is in essence to want to make a map of the world, to understand; wanting to know and critique the experience of life.

Supported by O’Leary’s Camera World and IADT

Running until Wednesday 9 February

Mark February 2011 as a very exciting month of Photography in Cork. The above video is from the All My Lovin opening in May 2010 in Poland. Now it’s coming to Cork!

I received the press release this morning, so will quote directly from it –

Sirius Arts Centre in association with the Crawford Art Gallery has brought together a number of arts venues to organize a massive exhibition of photography that will take over Cork City and County in February 2011.

The exhibitions are being held to highlight the importance of photographic art to the area and in support of the largest exhibition of photography ever to be held in Cork!   “All My Lovin” which opens in the Crawford Art Gallery on Thursday 3 of February at 6:00pm was initially co curated Sirius Artistic Director, Peggy Sue Amison Krzysztof Candrowicz – Director of Fotofestiwal, Lódz and Lódz Arts Centre, Poland  and Christoph Tannert – Director of Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin Germany, for the 9th Annual Lodz International Festival of Photography and premiered in Lódz, Poland and Berlin Germany in 2010 – now this collection of international photographic artists will be highlighted in Ireland.

The collected supporting exhibitions will highlight different established arts venues, as well as numerous artist led spaces and universities.  Sirius Arts Centre, with the support of Culture Ireland has organised for a 2 day portfolio review event featuring over 13 curators and artists from Ireland and Europe (registration is now closed on this event) which will take place on the 5 &6 of February in Cobh, County Cork with over 70 participating photographers.

Prisoner of Damp Patches

Works by April Gertler

Basement Project Space – Camden Quay, Cork

Explorations in various media including collage, drawing and photography addressing aspects of everyday life – inner dialogues, moments and details the artist sees, hears or considers as she moves through her days. The pieces in this show are a mirror of the quotidian, but taken together, they point to the larger themes running through the artist’s oeuvre: female empowerment; the meaning of time; the complex dynamics of intimate relationships; the anonymity of urban life, and also mobility and globalization.

April was artist in residence in January for the Guesthouse – part of the Cork Artist’s Collective. This is her first solo exhibition in Ireland.  For more information visit: www.aprilgertler.com

Additionally April is the founder of Picture Berlin, an artist residency/art academy for artists working with photography.  For more information: www.aprilgertler.com/ www.pictureberlin.org

Pamela Condell @ Stag & Deer

 

(c) Pamella Condell

 

Stag & Deer opening is tonight at 6pm at Store on Oliver Plunkett St. in Cork.

 

The following is some info about Pamela Condell from the Stag & Deer website –

 

I feel emptiness in the landscape.
Back to the aftermath.
An overriding sense that I’ve missed something.
Perhaps I feel emptiness in myself that I’m trying to preserve and protect.
I am alone in the moment that stops me, I feel a great weight and anticipation descend and pull at my hair.

Pamela’s current work is primarily based on an eloquent emptiness; site-specific landscapes and portraits which are tied to human presence.

Pamela Condell holds a Diploma in Photography from St. Johns College, Cork. She has exhibited as a feature artist in association with the Triskel Arts Centre, Cork – Ladyfest 2008

Pádraig Spillane @ Stag & Deer

(c) Padraig Spillane

When an artist takes a photo he/she is observing and creating an image. This image of something in the world is made through a camera and the made image is given to the viewer for reflection. What takes place in this exchange?

The goal of this work is to instil in the viewer that they have the responsibility through their subjectivity to draw associations between the images, to create a contemplative journey for meaning within the work.

The relationship between the viewer and the image is paramount. The viewer is to realise that they are exploring themselves as much as the work and artist for meaning. What is an image? What is a viewer? How does one relate to an image?
Pádraig Spillane is a photographer from Cork.  He has studied photography in the Crawford College of Art and Design where he received ‘Most Promising Student’ in Photography 2007. A founding member of Cork Analogue Photographers, Pádraig’s first solo show ‘Affection’ was the subject of much acclaim in 2009. His work is primarily portrait based with a concentration on intimacy, texture, surface and reflection. His work concentrates on what constitutes an image and how the viewer relates to the image.

Stag and Deer

 

Stag & Deer

Cork Analogue Photographers’ Pamella Condell and Padraig Spillane have set up Stag & Deer, to support emerging new artists. Their first opening will be this coming Thursday, November 5th at Store, in Oliver Plunkett St., Cork. All welcome! The following is from the Stag & Deer website –

Stag & Deer’s purpose is to bolster and support emerging and established artists.

We are a curatorship project to facilitate emerging artists’ needs by giving a contemporary art space to exhibit work.  Our goal is to showcase emerging contemporary art to the public without overbearing the art itself. We plan to do this by having exhibitions in spaces under our own curatorship i.e. “pop-up galleries”.  These “pop-up galleries” are spaces that do not have a permanent position.

We intend to move our space for each exhibition to highlight different possibilities for art presentation and the possibilities for Cork City to showcase emerging art in a contemporary art context. These spaces would be anything from an empty shop premise, an outdoor public space project to working with an artist on a site specific project. Within these spaces, artists would be allowed to show finished work or projects that are work-in-progress, thereby, allowing the public to witness an individual art practice. Exhibiting artists will be on hand to answer questions about their work.

Shows will be nominally titled Season 1, Season 2, etc., thereby creating a space that is free for appreciation and interpretation.
