Exhibition: Dissolving Beyond The Worm Moon - Bassam Al-Sabah

From: 31 Aug 2019
To: 26 Oct 2019
Bassam Al-Sabah’s exhibition Dissolving by the Worm Moon will present new and existing works that convey visions of war, resistance, and perseverance. Using video, painting, and sculpture, Al-Sabah’s installations are concerned with how the past is constantly reviewed to meet the present. Examining the agendas and effects of children’s broadcasting in Iraq between 1970 to the present day, scenes of war and destruction are shown in parallel with fantasy and reality, the hero and the everyday, the make-believe and fact. As the juvenile fantasy breaks down into the veracity of adulthood, the links between violence, representation, and preservation are deconstructed.

WET PAINT by Shane Casey

Written by and featuring Shane Casey of The Young Offenders, Wet Paint brings us back to 2005 - the country is booming, Jambons are priced at an all-time high, that blind opera singer is coming to Cork and tickets are impossible to find. Tony has a fresh tan from the Canaries; Pa is wondering how Liverpool will get on in the Champion’s League and Barry’s got a secret. Casey’s hilarious play depicts a day-in-the-life of two painter/decorators and their boss during the Celtic Tiger era, when anything was possible - at least inside your head.
