Islanders - When Darkness Falls 

2019 -2020

Dublin Castle 

4th October 2019 - 7th Januray 2020

ISLANDERS - When darkness falls, is a collaborative borderless artwork by Island artists that straddles giant continents and powers, and encompasses wider world thinking from a basis of small singular actions. A Live Event – Unique to place and culture

 

A light projection artwork particular to a location, creating a gathering of community, sharing culture, language, geography, craft, tradition, and innovation

 

 

ISLANDERS aims to create a worldwide community base of Island artists working with GLASS by giving global visibility to a heretofore, unmapped island community. Working from individual perspectives to make a collaborative project, ISLANDERS maps how without borders or prejudice, positive gestures can result in supporting each other. The project invites discussion around how living on an island can inspire and influence artwork, business and community. Through this it examines how independence and dependence, affects communities to drive change, create identities and build on connections with other island nations.

 

Róisín de Buitléar has collaborated with artists from Islands around the world using original artworks created on miniature glass slides. Over 50 artists from 20 different Islands have contributed to the project. Taking old technology of vintage magic lanterns and combining new technology of digital projection this project is an exciting development in an on going interest in projected light and shadow. Engraving, painting, laminating, applique, or transparent decal are some of the ways images have been manipulated to create projectable imagery in glass. The collaborative imagery, particular location and projection will culminate in making the ISLANDERS a unique artwork in multiple venues.

AWD Studio presents "Fragile Correspondence", an exhibition of engraved glass communication between Róisín de Buitléar in Ireland, and Amy West in Italy, created especially for The Venice Glass Week 2019.

 

Two artists united by their passion for glass engraving and the incised line, this ongoing dialog explores the importance of making time to communicate, using glass engraving as their common language. In the exhibition, visitors can see individual and collaborative artwork in glass and paper, the application of various engraving techniques and tools, and the process of printing from engraved plates.

 

 

The exhibition will be opened until 15th November 2019, only upon appointment.

A new group of the best glass engravers from Sweden, Finland, Germany, Estonia, France, Ireland, the Netherlands, Great Britain, Austria, Romania, Belgium and the Czech Republic will be showing their work at the Finnish Glass Museum at Riihimäki.

These artists represent the diversity of contemporary European glass engraving in both artistic and technical terms, ranging from the best of traditional engraving to cutting edge experimental pieces, extending the boundaries of what we mean by ‘glass engraving’. Contemporary glass engraving is very much a living, dynamic activity.

We explore sound captured in glass in this beautiful exhibition of work by Irish glass artist Róisín de Buitléar, which forms part of the TradFest Children’s Hub 2018.

Featuring pieces from Róisín’s Irish Incantation/Ortha series, the exhibition features a series of beautiful glass objects that capture the essence of musical sound and pitch in glass form. Some of the sculptures are made to evoke the sound and duration of a musical note, others will remind you of musical instruments that look like they could be played.

In fact while you are visiting the exhibition, you will see a video of them being played by musicians Liam Ó Maonlaí and Peter O’Toole along with hearing Róisín talking about the inspiration for her work.

Alongside the exhibition display will be a fun interactive glass sound exploring area using glass objects found in everyday life that will enable you to try out making your own glass music.

venue: The ARK Cultural Centre for Children. Temple Bar, Dublin.
