Welcome to our “Windows Project”. We embarked on this journey in response to the pandemic and ongoing challenges that are happening as a result.
This project is a piece in development by Garter Lane Arts Centre.
We are keen to remind our audiences that artists continue to work and produce even in times of uncertainty, and we are excited about the opportunity to share their work, through our windows projections and at street level.
Our second featured artist is….
Artists Name: Clare Scott
Title of Work: Mammy, that building’s making fish-eyes at me…
Clare Scott Is a Waterford based artist and writer. She uses a variety of media. Her work is often site-specific and uses visual and narrative interruption as well as humor to explore the art process, the artists’ place in society as well as her own uncertain navigation of life. ‘Mammy..’ perhaps also refers to the traditional relationship between the artwork and the viewer. Has new and social media, exacerbated by gallery closures due to the pandemic, confined the viewer once again to being merely a disembodied eye?
About the work:
This work was designed specifically for the Garter Lane Studio building windows. It attempts to surprise, unsettle as well as entertain the passerby.
Duration: 3 Minute loop
Medium: Film Animation
Date of Projection: Mon 15 Feb | Wed 17 Feb | Fri19 Feb
Time of Projection: 6.30-8.30pm (on listed dates)
Over the coming weeks, Garter Lane will be projecting a series of commissioned pieces in our studio building windows (No. 5 O’Connell Street) for your cultural sustenance when you’re out walking or in the car.
The project relies on a subtle blend of falling light, and passers-by catching a glimpse of something they weren’t expecting on a stroll down O’Connell Street.
Our aim is that of bringing artistic work into an environment where it can be seen and experienced by the public.
Many people were involved in getting this project up and running and without their help and support it simply would not have happened, so Thank you: Deirdre Dwyer, John Grubb (Every Event), Sandra Kelly and Richard (Lippy) Collins…
The Projection of Work is weather dependant… projections will not go ahead if inclement weather is forecast.
Remember to social distance, keep your mask on and help each other to stay safe !
