Fire are delighted to present Propeller, a group show of work by the five finalists of our competition for final year students of the visual arts. The show will comprise the artists’ current work, dealing with themes both social and personal.
Dee O’Shea’s work encompasses a combination of fictional and real architectural spaces where Illusion, scale and spatial articulation are skewed, creating images which are theatrical, absurd and yet recognisable.
‘Nothing Lasts Forever’ by Dorje de Burgh is a personal communication of shifting ideologies in an urban/suburban world in which the future is no longer what it once was.
Ronan McCall’s project, ‘East to Eden’, depicts the crossing by sea between Dublin and Holyhead. The documentary tradition to which the works belong is coupled with an introverted, reflective tone.
Combining contemporary photography and archival research, Darek Fortas’ ‘Coal Story’ is a social documentary which focuses on JSW, the largest coal mine company in Europe.
Anna Wickham’s work ‘Rooster Tail’ is a visual enquiry into how a viewer experiences ’real’ world images as represented in televisual imagery.
The exhibition runs from Wednesday 13 July till Friday 29th July.
Opening hours Mon-Fri, 9am to 6pm.
Opening Party & Award Presentation Wednesday 20 July from 6pm. All are welcome.
