THE 9&50 FREAKSHOW – NCAD GRADUATES SHOW 2017

TEXTILE ART & ARTEFACT

National College of Art and Design, Graduate Exhibition, Dublin 2017

Coming into the room full of butterflies within a second I was under an impression that I was covered in them! Even though they were not flying it felt that they were. There was so much to look at, I felt excited as a child who is chasing butterflies on a hot summer day.

Like if I was dreaming one of my abstract dreams where I am feeling happy and hyper. Stimulated by images appearing in front of my eyes, knowing I would wake up in a good mood because of the mad, colourful dream. Even if it was hard to find a story and a connection between one artwork and another, all together it made a perfect sense. Freakshow is like a dream wrapped in a warm blanket of all shades of brown colour.

 


THE 9&50 FREAKSHOW

BY LAUREN HOEY

‘Surrounded by ideals of perfection, my interest lies in the feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt; resulting in fantasies of escape and evolution to compensate. Using a variety of mixed media and textile techniques, I explore and imagined a narrative that borrows from a dark but humorous aesthetic informed by a freak show of hybrid creatures. A celebration of the imperfect has resulted in an installation that takes a classroom as the stage for an eerie metamorphosis.’ says Lauren Hoey

Apologies for being dormant on Facebook. Here's a little clip of 1 out of 70 paper cut butterflies I've been working on. In total, the 70 butterflies took approx. 12 hours, 7 scalpel wounds, 3 tears and a dash of blood.

THE NATIONAL COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN IN DUBLIN – CERAMICS

National College of Art and Design - Ceramics, Graduates Show 2017

CERAMICS, GRADUATES EXHIBITION 2017

The exhibition is taking place each year at the end of June and usually, it lasts for ten days. Among Dublin art colleges it is the most creative graduate’s shows.

The origins of the College date from 1746 and by 1924 the National College of Art and Design was fully established. The campus is located on Thomas Street in around the area of Guinness Storehouse. The College has four Schools; Design, Education, Fine Art and Visual Culture.

The School of Design is the largest in the College and comprises ceramics, glass, metals, fashion design, industrial and product design, textile design and visual communication. In design, the emphasis is on solving specific problems set by the project. While students are expected to master the relevant technologies, the aesthetic design factor is stressed equally. There are many links with industry and students often work on competitions sponsored by commercial firms. The College aims to promote a broad education in design which can be the basis for a variety of careers either as part of a team in industry or by working individually in a studio or small business. (source http://www.ncad.ie/about)

I had taken a large number of photographs on that day and unfortunately was unable to take the names, titles and the contact details of the artists. If any of the artists will come across this article, please contact me and I will provide a relevant link to your work.
