Opening Preview: 6 July, 6-9pm with a performance by Eoghan Ryan at 7.30pm

Catalyst Arts is delighted to present VIEWING COPY, an exhibition of work by artists Eoghan Ryan and Vivienne Dick alongside The Radical Film Archive and a newly commissioned text by Maeve Connolly.

This project is driven by an exploration into the hierarchical economy and circulation of video in artist moving image practice, directly referencing the particular and peculiar status of the ‘Viewing Copy’ within the market of contemporary art and its continued covert resistance to contemporary capitalism. The project considers the physicality of the screen and materiality of video formats as a framing device for autobiographical content, brought into focus as a measure and mediation of subjectivity, with the potential for generating alternative representations and a shared cultural, collective memory.

Late Night Art Belfast

Jasmin is a visual artist whose primary material interest lies in the microbial kingdoms. Practically engaging with fungal and bacterial cultures, she seeks analogies to societal cultures, exploring relevant scientific concepts and their philosophical paradigms.

Chimera is the result of Jasmins two month incubation of the Array project space. In this time she has explored theories of Symbiogenesis, which suggest that long-term encounters between organisms have lead to evolutionary changes and even the creation of new species. The outcome manifests as a collage of Kombucha cultures; an assemblage of symbiotic alliances of bacteria and yeasts, which ferment tea and sugar to a lightly effervescent drink. Chimera draws from the idea that Kombucha’s journey from its origin in the Qin Dynasty to houses worldwide has produced a diversity of strains, affected by various cultural encounters along the way.
For this work, Jasmin has united strains from different locations and marked each origin by adding a natural dye in the brewing process. Cut-outs from each culture were re-assembled and organically seamed to produce imagery that reflects on symbiogenetic processes.

5 to 7 July
Late Night Art Belfast, Thursday 6 July, 6pm

The area of investigation within Connolly’s practice explores the ‘extendable paint surface’ and the provisionality this causes within traditional notions of painting. By asking questions of painting the concern lies in creating a space for conversation within the possibilities of the medium, rather than a model or originality for producing painted objects anew.

Doubt, boundaries and object-ness therefore become reoccurring themes within the visual outcomes. Most of Connolly’s recent research is looking at forms of slippage, both in materials and language, exploring the area of when a painting can no longer be called a painting and when is it just something else be it sculpture, installation or photography: falling into a theory or system of art which has been influenced by paint. Not quite a painting but not yet identifiable as something else.
