CAPP Cartographies

CAPP Cartographies is a visual footprint of the primary four year CAPP research journey that artist Susanne Bosch undertook. As the embedded researcher within the network, she applied, in line with the collaborative intention of the programme, a dialogical methodology to capture, gain and gather knowledge and insights not about, but with the key stakeholder groups and individuals involved. Dialogical, relational practice corresponds with presence and direct exchange, which CAPP Cartographies intends to mirror.

Ongoing (10:00-18:00) I Slept Like A Stone Group Exhibition

Curated by Sheena Barrett and Julia Moustacchi

The LAB is pleased to present the group exhibition I Slept Like A Stone, bringing together significant past and current Irish collaborative and socially engaged commissions alongside a selection of works from the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) led by Create.

‘I Slept Like A Stone’ explores the potentials of collaborative and socially engaged practice, how we connect, misunderstand each other, and eventually find new ways of communicating with each other through collective journeys. The exhibition looks at microcosms of shared stories to consider alternative ways of behaving and misbehaving in the global political context. The very essence of a European funded project seeks to find ways of discovering our shared Europeanness and promoting understanding, and as such, it takes the form of a collaborative undertaking.

The works relate to one another in their shared questioning of how we support the development of artists’ practice, how we connect to each other through making and building, how audiences become authors or participants and how the arts support the urgent enquiries of our time. The exhibition features works by HEED FM, Hablarente, Fiona Reilly, Rhona Byrne, Yvonne McGuinness, Mark Clare, Gareth Kennedy, Clodagh Emoe, Christine Mackey, Michael McLoughlin, Helen Barry, Seoidín O’Sullivan, Seamus Nolan, Christopher Kline, Susanne Bosch, Sibylle Peters, Tibor Gyenis, Mark Storor, Jakob & Manila Bartnik and Antje Schiffers.

Ongoing (12:30-15:30) Engaging Places: Collaborative Praxis in Art and Architecture

In April, Engaging Places: Collaborative Praxis in Art and Architecture showcased six leading Irish practitioners in Tate Liverpool as part of the fifth CAPP Staging Post, supported by Culture Ireland’s GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain programme. This showcase and associated events sought to explore the potential of collaborative art and architectural initiatives to address questions of spatial justice and promote creative and collaborative responses to the built environment. Create, with the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF), presents an iteration of this project for Irish audiences in an exhibition of video, visual & textual pieces by the six practitioners; artist Michelle Browne, curators Rosie Lynch and Éilis Lavelle from Callan Workhouse Union, artist-architect Blaithin Quinn, and architects Emmett Scanlon and Laurence Lord from Out.Post.Office at University College Dublin (UCD).

Warm-up: Come Along

Led by Christel Schulte, Come Along is an invitation to concentrate, to feel present, to become aware of yourselves and maybe others, simply by doing something familiar – through walking.

The instructions are to walk on your own, in silence, to walk as slowly as possible, find your own rhythm and activate all of your five senses; it’s all about smelling, watching, feeling, hearing, tasting. Identify which sense feels best today. We will start at 09:05 outside the entrance of 2 Curved Street. The piece is completed once you arrive to the entrance of the IFI or at 09:30 if you have not arrived by then. Latecomers are welcome to join us.

10:00 - 11:00
Keynote: Jeanne van Heeswijk, Artist
Moderator: Mick Wilson, Head of Valand Academy of Arts, University of Gothenburg

Jeanne van Heeswijk is an artist who facilitates the creation of dynamic and diversified public spaces in order to “radicalize the local.” Her long-term community-embedded projects question art’s autonomy by combining performative actions, discussions, and other forms of organising and pedagogy in order to assist communities to take control of their own futures. Drawing on two major projects Freehouse: Radicalising the Local in Rotterdam (2008 – ongoing), and the more recent Philadelphia Assembled (2015-2017 and ongoing), Jeanne will explore key questions relating to power and practice from the artist’s perspective.

Premiere: The realm of possibility – An acoustic footprint

Over the last four years, Susanne Bosch, CAPP Artist Researcher, gathered about 200 hours of audio recordings from the CAPP network meetings, events, dialogues, conversations and exchanges. She captured countless moments attempting to verbally de-construct and newly construct this field of interconnectedness through collaborative arts. A sound piece has been developed in collaboration with composer, musician and producer Seán Mac Erlaine that captures the polyphonic nature of this practice and the, multi-layered, complex web of CAPP conversations.

Screening + Meet the Makers: I Like Being a Farmer and I Would Like to Stay One

I like being a farmer and I would like to stay one is an ongoing, long-term artistic project initiated by Antje Schiffers in 2000. Schiffers offered a barter trade to farmers: a painting that she would make of their farmstead, in exchange for a film that the farmers would shoot about how they live and work. The collaboration focused especially on rural change, the socio-political, economic, and cultural transformation that the Hungarian countryside has undergone in the past 25-30 years. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the curator & collaborator Katalin Erdödi and Andrea Simon, Head of International Relations at Ludwig Museum Budapest.

Roundtable: Representation and the archive: The Travellers Collection

This discussion will explore questions of ownership and representation of Traveller culture and heritage. They will address the challenges of collecting Traveller culture, the necessity to create such a collection and the possibility of a Travellers’ collection maintained by Travellers.

The Hugh Lane at Pavee Point – on this day the Jerome Connor work ‘Street Singer’ will be exhibited in Pavee Point Traveller & Roma Centre. The work from the Municipal collection, was selected as one of a number of works which points to the representation of shared traditions of Traveller culture within the museum. The siting of the work within the national Traveller organisation initiates an engagement of equivalence between these organisations which will be developed as part of an ongoing dialogue.

Presenters: Seamus Nolan, artist // Rosaleen McDonagh, artist &  Board of Directors, Pavee Point Traveller & Roma Centre // Dr. Eve Olney, artist & ethnographer // Jessica O’Donnell, Head of Education and Community Outreach, Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane // Chair: Oein DeBhairduin, educator and Vice Chair of the Irish Traveller Movement

Workshop: Magnetic Translocations

The workshop will begin with a performative lecture where artist Ruppe Koselleck – with up to 30 participating artists – will build an exhibition of art pieces based in magnetic material. Ruppe proposes Magnetic Translocations as strategic interventions in public and private space. Magnetic translocations overcome site-specific limitations by means of entertaining and iron-containing temporary adhesions – they extend upon the curatorial ideal: “the exhibition always starts exactly where I am.” Everybody who takes part in this joint curatorial excess will receive a reward; the participation in an international exhibition! Ruppe Koselleck will take the art pieces with him and curate shows in Germany (Ahlen, Berlin, Münster, and Osnabrück) and in Mexico City during 2018.

Roundtable: Collaborative Practice and the Art Institution: Critical Platform or Institutional Capture?

In the context of ever-greater programming of collaborative and socially engaged arts practice by major arts institutions this roundtable explores the challenges and rewards for the institution, as well as artists and communities engaged in this context. Questions of negotiation and authorship abound in these inter-organisational and institutional constellations. What responsibilities does the institution have to a collaborative network which has emerged directly out of a commissioning or project initiative? What are the challenges for, and ways through these durational and often complex collaborations?

As our world becomes used to the vista of a future that is technologically driven, the Artist must also decide the part that the new tools of Virtual Reality and Artificial Intelligence platforms play in their practice. The challenges are technical, ethical and structural: what are the parameters of authorship and originality, the uses of image and where the lines of truth and reality cross are among the questions artists must ask themselves in terms of what they do and how they do it. An examination of these and other questions, looking at what organisations like Fire Station Artists’ Studios and m-cult are exploring and where materials and technology meet. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own device for this discursive workshop.

Ongoing (09:00-18:00) CAPP Cartographies

CAPP Cartographies is a visual footprint of the primary four year CAPP research journey that artist Susanne Bosch undertook. As the embedded researcher within the network, she applied, in line with the collaborative intention of the programme, a dialogical methodology to capture, gain and gather knowledge and insights not about, but with the key stakeholder groups and individuals involved. Dialogical, relational practice corresponds with presence and direct exchange, which CAPP Cartographies intends to mirror.

Wonderful World is a participatory intervention in public and private space by Jakob & Manila Bartnik. It plays with layers of visibility by changing your point of view, challenging you to question new alternatives of reality and to discover the blind spots in our everyday system.

Ongoing (10:00-18:00) I Slept Like A Stone Group Exhibition

Curated by Sheena Barrett and Julia Moustacchi

The LAB is pleased to present the group exhibition I Slept Like A Stone, bringing together significant past and current Irish collaborative and socially engaged commissions alongside a selection of works from the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) led by Create.

‘I Slept Like A Stone’ explores the potentials of collaborative and socially engaged practice, how we connect, misunderstand each other, and eventually find new ways of communicating with each other through collective journeys. The exhibition looks at microcosms of shared stories to consider alternative ways of behaving and misbehaving in the global political context. The very essence of a European funded project seeks to find ways of discovering our shared Europeanness and promoting understanding, and as such, it takes the form of a collaborative undertaking.

The works relate to one another in their shared questioning of how we support the development of artists’ practice, how we connect to each other through making and building, how audiences become authors or participants and how the arts support the urgent enquiries of our time. The exhibition features works by HEED FM, Hablarente, Fiona Reilly, Rhona Byrne, Yvonne McGuinness, Mark Clare, Gareth Kennedy, Clodagh Emoe, Christine Mackey, Michael McLoughlin, Helen Barry, Seoidín O’Sullivan, Seamus Nolan, Christopher Kline, Susanne Bosch, Sibylle Peters, Tibor Gyenis, Mark Storor, Jakob & Manila Bartnik and Antje Schiffers.

Ongoing (12:30-15:30) Engaging Places: Collaborative Praxis in Art and Architecture

In April, Engaging Places: Collaborative Praxis in Art and Architecture showcased six leading Irish practitioners in Tate Liverpool as part of the fifth CAPP Staging Post, supported by Culture Ireland’s GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain programme. This showcase and associated events sought to explore the potential of collaborative art and architectural initiatives to address questions of spatial justice and promote creative and collaborative responses to the built environment. Create, with the Irish Architecture Foundation (IAF), presents an iteration of this project for Irish audiences in an exhibition of video, visual & textual pieces by the six practitioners; artist Michelle Browne, curators Rosie Lynch and Éilis Lavelle from Callan Workhouse Union, artist-architect Blaithin Quinn, and architects Emmett Scanlon and Laurence Lord from Out.Post.Office at University College Dublin (UCD).
