Court Pace I
Andrew Duggan’s work has been presented in, and is concerned with, spaces where the location and (social, historical, architectural) context is crucial to the understanding of the work; from installations in handball alleys [court, 2011, future perfect, 2008], video projections in disused creameries [milk + honey, 2002], to creating video pieces in previously used film locations [iarsma_remnant, 2009] or theatrical spaces [act, 2006].
The work has been described as a collision between ‘a past’ [incient/event/legacy] and ‘now’ [codes of representation/transmission].
Founded in 1972, Irish Arts Center is a New York-based arts and cultural center dedicated to projecting a dynamic image of Ireland and Irish America for the 21st century, building community with artists and audiences of all backgrounds, forging and strengthening cross-cultural partnerships, and preserving the evolving stories and traditions of Irish culture for generations to come. Our multi-disciplinary programming is centered around three core areas: performance – including live music, dance, theatre, film, literature, and the humanities; exhibition – including visual arts presentations and cultural exhibitions that tell the evolving Irish story; and education – with dozens of classes per week in Irish language, history, music, and dance. Located in New York City, a global capital of arts and culture, Irish Arts Center serves as a dynamic platform for top emerging and established artists and cultural creators to reach a New York, national, and global audience, and as a gateway for other institutions to access first-rate Irish and Irish American culture
This Public Art Event is an Outdoor Projection on 51st Street between 10th and 11th ave. in New York City, from 6pm – 10pm on Wednesday 7th December.
A new video work by Andrew Duggan shows the sports person Paul Galvin pacing an apparent white cube space. The work continues the artist’s occupation of placing ‘the individual’ within a particular built environment and re-presenting it in a new context. In this case, the new context is an intimate street space in Manhattan.
