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.
