Featuring two pieces of sound and visual art, respectively entitled Make A Sound and Reconnected, a new exhibition hosted by Headway represents work undertaken by two groups of clients with brain injury attending the Headway training centre in Cork. The exhibition opens in Triskel Arts Centre, Cork on 11 December 2015.
Make A Sound is the result of an 8-week collaboration between sound artist and musician Rory O’Brien, and 14 clients attending Headway. Rory, along with guest artists Ed Devane and Natalia Beylis, introduced the group to sound art, working with them to record their explorations and experiments with everyday sound. Supported by Cork City Arts Office, this exhibition brings these recordings to life in a playful and interactive way.
Reconnected is the work of visual artist Carolyn Collier, and is her response to her time spent documenting the creative process of six women with brain injury who created a contemporary dance performance with choreographer Inma Pavon this summer. Carolyn’s work draws on the personal and collective journeys undertaken by the women as they discovered new ways of moving and performing. Their work culminated in the Arts Council of Ireland and Cork County Arts office sponsored performance, Connections, at the Firkin Crane in September. Reconnected is intended as a tribute to this work.
The launch takes place in The Project Space at 7pm on 11 December, followed by food and refreshments in Gulpd foyer. Music and dancing in Gulpd Café by DJs Lemur and Seale until late.
Exhibition dates: 11-12 December 2015
