Lismore Castle Arts Presents Gerard Byrne Curated by Mike Fitzpatrick

CO WATERFORD.- Lismore Castle Arts presents its 2010 annual exhibition, Gerard Byrne, which opened on April 24th and continues until September 30th 2010, at Lismore Castle Arts, Lismore, Co Waterford, Ireland.

Gerard Byrne’s works are primarily lens based, in film, video and photography, often presented as ambitious site related installations. Through his practice he explores the ambiguities in the historical legacy of cultural forms. He consistently references a range of sources in his work from popular magazines of the recent past to the work of playwrights like Beckett and Brecht. Recently he has worked on a number of projects with actors and sets, which develop his conceptual interest in acting and the theatre, and which test the tensions between sculpture and set design, acting and non acting, spectacle and spectator.

For the exhibition, Lismore Castle Arts has co-commissioned (with the 2010 Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art and The Renaissance Society at The University of Chicago, in collaboration with the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven) an ambitious new work by Byrne. A Thing is a Hole in a Thing it is Not is manifested as four separate films about Minimalism, shown parallel to one another. Through a night-time journey on the New Jersey turnpike, a radio interview between three artists, a re-enactment in a New York theatre and the documentation of a museum installation, this work explores the historical locations of these moments and the enclosed spaces in which they are presented.

At Lismore Castle Arts’ new off-site project space, Byrne will present the work Untitled Acting Exercise (in the third person), which records the efforts of two actors and a director attempting to understand a script through dramatisation. This work was commissioned for 2008 Sydney Biennale and will be shown as a single projection in a 19th century former church hall.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a limited edition publication, designed by the Peter Maybury Studio, which will include a newly commissioned text by Dr Penelope Curtis, which will be published by Lismore Castle Arts in June 2010. Events accompanying the show include a seminar on Re-Imagining Minimalism, a tour of the exhibition by Eamonn Maxwell, Director, Lismore Castle Arts (12th May), a lecture exploring the synergy between Gerard Byrne and legendary Irish playwright Samuel Beckett (2nd June) and a talk between Gerard Byrne and Mike Fitzpatrick (12th June).

Gerard Byrne was born in Dublin in 1969, where he continues to live and work, and is acclaimed as amongst the most critically important artists of his generation. He represented Ireland at the 52nd Venice Biennale and his work has been presented in recent years at the Biennales of Lyon, Sydney and Gwangju, and Turin. Recent solo shows include ICA Boston, Statens Museum for Kunst Copenhagen, Galerie Nordenhake Stockholm, and Kunstverein Dusseldorf. His work is represented in many collections, including the Tate Museum, the Irish Museum of Modern Art, the Hirshhorn, the Kroller Mueller Museum and Museion, Bolzano.
