ART

Triskel Arts Centre, Tobin St. Sandra Hickey – Where Two Styles Meet – Loving Vincent Inspired 10 am, adm free

This exhibition will contain two bodies of work by Cork-based artist Sandra Hickey. The first style of work is inspired by her time working on Oscar-nominated Loving Vincent, where she and 124 artists hand painted over 65,000 frames in the style of Vincent Van Gogh. ‘We painted so intensely and for long hours in the style of Vincent Van Gogh and trained in mastering his painting style. After finishing the production, I couldn’t help but see a Van Gogh style painting in every landscape I encountered, and in every changing sky. My response was to paint it.’ These paintings are mainly urban and rural landscapes. The second body of work is a style Hickey has been developing for years and was making in the lead up to Loving Vincent. These works are very different from her Van Gogh inspired paintings. They are abstract and figurative. They are all about the body and its beautiful imperfections.

EXHIBITION

Triskel Arts Centre, Tobin St. Asylum Archive – Vukašin Nedeljković 10 am, adm free

The Asylum Archive is an art, activist and academic platform that examines the notion of Direct Provision Centres; the localities and sites where asylum seekers are being held while in the process of seeking refugee status. It is the continuation of Vukašin Nedeljković’s ongoing work highlighting the injustices, confinement and incarceration of asylum seekers in Ireland. It is a significant work, since there is very little visual information about previous Irish carceral sites including Magdalene Laundries, Industrial Schools, Mother and Baby Homes and ‘Lunatic Asylums’. From April 2007 to November 2009, Vukašin was housed in a Direct Provision Centre while seeking asylum. The Asylum Archive grew from that experience.
