In the war against the Giants, the satyrs went into battle riding on donkeys. As they caught sight of the enemy, the asses were so terrified that they all let out a loud braying such as the Giants had never heard. At the noise, the Giants hastily took flight and thus were defeated by the satyrs on asses.

This of course never happened.

Enclave Gallery & Guest Projects | Venn/Chroma | Ronan McCrea

Jan 31 2014

Preview January 31st 6-9pm
Exhibition continues February 1st-22nd
Open Wed-Sat 12-6pm

Four-channel slide projection and photographs by Irish artist Ronan McCrea.

Ronan McCrea’s exhibition at Enclave continues an exploration of what the artist ironically calls his The History of Photography project. This body of work is orientated towards a re-consideration of historical moments and narratives through the found photograph and the archive, exploring the historicity and materiality of the photographic image in new ways and in the current cultural context of photographic image saturation (Google images etc.). The artist’s research draws on diverse sources and references – from Aby Warburg to the Pictures Generation –and adopts what can be described as a ‘reprographic’ approach in strategies of montage, appropriation, collage, sequence and typology.

Enclave 5: Divus | I’M CURATING MY OWN SOLO SHOW!!!!!!!!!! | Beth Fox

Sep 21 2013

September 27 – October 19 2013

“Beth Fox’s work espouses a complex form of reflexive post-modern humour with influences as diverse as Kierkagaard and Woody Allen, through the medium of sculpture and text new variations are synthesised from both opaque and transparent meanings and what starts out as contemplation soon becomes manipulated into a hegemony of defeat, leaving only a sense of unreality and the unlikelihood of a new order. . ” – August DeWitt (writer, intellectual, art critic, feminist, political activist and gender theorist.)
