The Space Between by Sarah Fuller and Maria Kerin

July 15th –  August 11th 2016

Maria and Sarah Image

This exhibition presents a film installation, ‘Other Possibilities’ in the main gallery by Sarah Fuller, and a series of presentation-performances, ‘Actualities’ by Maria Kerin.

Since 2007 Fuller and Kerin have often met to explore playfully and experiment through an open ended creative process that has centred on embodied movement. Out of these movement sketches a shared theme revealed itself; The Space Between.

Sarah Fuller investigates this through an artistic response to memory loss and dementia, exploring the abstract space between what is there and what has past. This body of work was kindly supported by The Arts Council, Create, and the Clare Arts Office and is the result of a long period of research and development with people affected by dementia. It incorporates storytelling, shadow, object play and moving image.

Maria Kerin investigates this through somatic movement exploring inherited identity, focusing on arthritis from the female line of her family, expressed through a participatory presentation-performance with emphasis on hands.

The raised space in the gallery will hold the W.B. Yeats Outrider friendship calendar, curated by Maria Kerin, which includes work by Sarah Fuller, Maria Kerin and Sven Eric Stanberg who is also exhibiting in the Red Couch Space at this time.

Above the Clouds by Sven-Erik Stamberg

RED COUCH SPACE July 15th – August 11th  
‘I live and work in the small borough Viimsi in Estonia. Since 1997 I have been exhibiting my work in a number of group and solo exhibitions in Estonia, Finland, Latvia, USA and Ireland. Exhibition “Above the Clouds” consists of giclee prints from my new collage series. Before materialisation all combats and battles are held on the idea level or so to speak, above the clouds or in the spirit.’ Sven-Erik Stamberg.

and we sense something
always afterwards,
when it echoes back
out of our memory,
an enduring murmur and
in the thicket
the smell of longing
