Tamsie Ringler - River Lee Project

Tamsie Ringler Pours Iron in Ireland

From its source in the Shehy Mountains on the Cork-Kerry border to where it empties into the Irish Sea at Cork Harbour, the River Lee embodies over 5000 years of human habitation and experience. Tamsie Ringler’s River Lee Project focuses on the importance of the River Lee to the daily life and heritage of Cork City and its surrounding areas. Iron is an elemental metal that signifies our connection with the world on a primal level. It runs through our bloodstream in much the same way as rivers run through our landscape. With the looming threat of flood-walls around Cork City, the River Lee Project represents our physical and emotional connection to our rivers and the importance of maintaining that connection.
Kate Casanova - Underbelly

Kate Casanova Solo Exhibition "Underbelly"

Underbelly is a selection of sculpture and video that explores the materiality of human and non-human bodies. The work uses materials such as plaster, carpet padding, plastic, resin, silicone, fabric and LCD screens to create abstract forms that bulge beyond borders, slide over edges, and seep through cracks. This exhibition holds tension between the bounded form of a body’s perceived exterior and an unknowable interior world; between control and unruliness. From newfound knowledge of the bacteria that lives in our gut, to medical devices implanted in bodies, to the phones in our pockets, our experience of the world is increasingly hybrid. The contemporary body is a liminal entity; a cyborg, a chimera, a network. It may be thought of as a site of marvel, anxiety and contestation because it blurs categories of human and non-human, inside and outside, organic and synthetic, singular and multiple, sensing and non-sensing. This exhibition reflects Casanova’s ongoing engagement with the Posthuman body as she creates an expanded view of corporeal experience.
