Setup, a device
28th – 30th March | Opening: 27th March at 6pm
Mill Street, Dublin 8
Opening hours: 12pm – 6pm
Setup, a device is an exhibition which presents the emerging practices of six forthcoming graduates of the National College of Art and Design, engaged in ongoing reciprocal research.
The construction of a framework is a setup, a device which must first be established in order for it to be undermined. Here we encounter a ruse, a gesture, an inquiry, a paradox, an axiom, a farce. These devices compete and contend in a voluminous site, staging their interrogation or subversion of subjects such as politics, theatre and identity.
Setup, a device takes place on Mill street, Dublin 8, from March 27th to 30th.
Artists include Renèe Helèna Browne, Avril Corroon, Kerry Guinan, Tara McKeon, Saoirse Wall and Eimear Walshe.
