‘Moving Targets (Poise and Pace)’, an exhibition which explores sport and human effort in contemporary art and features the work of Roddy Buchanan and Fergus Byrne, will open at The Source Arts Centre on Saturday, September 5th - the official opening will be performed by Donal Murphy from 3pm.
The exhibition will continue until Saturday, October 31st - Monday to Friday (10am to 5pm), Saturday (2pm to 5pm) and later on performance evenings.
‘Moving Targets (Poise and Pace)’ is the second fixture in a year-long programme entitled ‘Endurance | Resilience’ - this is a curated at The Source project which looks at the links between sport and human effort in contemporary art.
The exhibition is curated by Annette Moloney and the exhibition explores the creative connections to the sports of athletics and wrestling.
Roddy Buchanan’s silent film called ‘Harriers’ captures the moment that a group of runners finish a tough training run, where we get to watch each runner as they manage to catch their breath, all the while looking straight into the camera. Fergus Byrne will present sculpture and drawings that respond to the study of wrestling - both its practice and its representation in art.
A number of public events are planned as part of the exhibition which are free to attend.
On Saturday, September 5th the ‘Artists Run’ will take place from 12 noon to 1.30pm - Roddy Buchanan will host an alternative artist’s talk in the form of an ‘Artists Run’. Runners and joggers of all abilities are welcome to come along. The run will be short, at a comfortable pace and booking is essential.
Meanwhile, on Thursday, October 29th, The Source will host ‘Movement Workshops’ (12 noon to 1pm & 2-5pm). During the final week of the exhibition Dublin-based artist Fergus Byrne will offer a series of short ‘Movement Workshops’ aimed at teenagers upwards.
The workshops will cater for small numbers of people. So, booking is essential through the box office.
