Description

meatspace

Becks Butler, Astrid Newman, Ciara Roche

Exhibition opens for one night only: Thursday 4 April 2019, 6:30 - 8:30pm


Performance: 7:30pm

Royal Irish Academy, Dawson St., Dublin


meatspace is an exhibition that ends almost immediately after it starts. Taking place in the Royal Irish Academy on Dawson St, you’ll have exactly two hours to catch a glimpse of what could be loosely described as a combination of compatible and conflicting narratives that are partially resolved but continue to evolve. Bringing together the research of Becks Butler, Astrid Newman and Ciara Roche, the show explores human behaviour within shifting environments, questioning modes of adaptation.


Becks Butler is a lens-based artist and curator. She exhibited her solo show ‘Pushing Boundaries’ at illuminations in 2017 and has presented work in various group shows. Her collections have been purchased by the Royal Irish Academy and private collectors. Becks recently curated Vera Ryklova’s ‘Aesthetic Distance’ at Triskel Arts Centre. Astrid Newman is a performance and video artist, she has exhibited and performed in numerous spaces in Japan, Britain and Ireland. She is currently a curatorial research assistant at The Lab Gallery, Dublin and is co-founder of conch.fyi an online platform publishing weekly artist interviews. Ciara Roche is a painter. She has shown extensively in group shows throughout Ireland with a solo show in Lismore Castle Arts in 2016. Her work is in many public and private collections throughout Ireland, Britain, USA and China. Together the three artists are recipients of the 2019 Wexford M11 percent for art commission.
