Light Moves Festival of Screendance

Light Moves Festival of Screendance

3rd November 2017 - 14th January 2018
Limerick City Gallery of Art

Screendance @ the Gallery is a significant and exciting collaboration between Light Moves festival and Limerick City Gallery of Art (LCGA). Over the course of the next ten weeks (November 3rd – January 14th) a series of installations will be presented, featuring work by Harun Farocki (Czech Rep), Cindy Sherman (USA), Aernout Mik (NL) & Boris Charmatz (Fr) Rosemary Butcher (UK) alongside works from the ground breaking organisation, Carriagework (Aus) will present their commission 24 Frames Per Second.

 

Now in its fourth year, Light Moves has demonstrated a commitment to consistently high quality work, openness ambition to new ways of presenting work and a determination to reach a wider audience.  Through this collaboration with LCGA we hope to strengthen these core aims by presenting the work of the prominent international artists as part of our main exhibition programme and introduce this niche area of interest to our growing audience.

 

Works in the exhibition include: Doll Clothes by Cindy Sherman. Sherman is widely considered to be one of the most important and influential artists in contemporary visual arts.

 

Daytime Movements by Aernout Mik & Boris Charmatz places us at the border: in this “day dance” the disorder of the bodies interferes in a daily environment.

Workers Leaving the Factory in Eleven Decades by Harun Faocki focuses on the area in front of a factory, an area that can be both a sire of social conflict and the boundary between a worker’s personal and professional life.

 

Rosemary Butcher’s, Vanishing Point is a moving evocation of women’s position in a male-dominated society

 

Three of Carriageworks commissions will be shown at LCGA marking the final instalment of works shown by Light Moves 2014-17.  They include: Alison Currie’s, I can relate; Bryon Perry & Antony Hamilton’s Untitled and, finally François Chaignaud & César Vayssié’s 5 cycle work, The Sweetest Choice.

 

Screendance is curated by Light Moves Directors, Mary Wycherley and Jürgen Simpson
