Arkady Feed @ MExIndex

Arkady Feed, my 2013 collaboration with Paul Hegarty, will screen this Wednesday September 13th at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin, as part of this event:

Cityscapes: The ruins of the present
Studio 6 TBSG 6.30 pm, 13 September 2017.

A screening of Irish and Turkish works, followed by an informal discussion and reception at Studio next Wednesday 13 September at 6.30 pm, in Studio 6 Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, 5-9 Temple Bar, Dublin. MExIndex curator-in-resident Rana Öztürk will present a selection of Irish and Turkish films with her unique knowledge and experience of contemporary art and urban contexts in Dublin and Istanbul, having lived in both cities. The selection will explore the change and flux of cities as a result of their constant destruction and reconstruction due to changing infrastructural requirements, commercial imperatives and government policies.

It aims to highlight the resulting challenges and possible gains to urban environment and how that affects inhabitants and their surroundings as well as the individual and the collective memory of urban landscapes.

This is a selection of films that look at urban landscapes as sites of constant transformation, shifting grounds of contemporary life that is increasingly concentrated in cities across the globe.

Langan/Le Cain in Film Ireland

Seamas McSwiney has taken to the pages of Film Ireland to make note of the wonderfully well attended and received screening of Langan/Le Cain films at the Centre Culturel Irlandais (CCI), Paris, last Monday. (He's also responsible for the above photo...) A big thank you to him, to the diverse and interesting audience that packed the space in spite of the great heat that evening, and most of all to the CCI itself. 

The screening was the culmination of a month long residency Vicky and I had been granted at the CCI. It proved to be an exceptionally rich and productive four weeks. The next few months are set to be packed with screening and performance activity from us. This kicks off with Wilderness Notes, screening this Friday and Saturday in Dublin...
