SPLIT CHARGE (DAVID LACEY, MARIA NILSSON WALLER AND COLM CLARKE)
29 AUG 2013
Curated by Ciara McKeon
Expanding on and responding to the ideas explored in Jennifer Tee's gallery exhibition at Project Arts Centre, Colm Clarke, Maria Nilsson Waller and David Lacey will perform in the Cube on Thursday, 29 August at 8pm. Split Charge presents solo works in dance, sound and performance art by three diverse artists practicing performance in Ireland today, curated by Ciara McKeon. These artists' distinct practices will create moments and forms that align and fracture, from evoking a sweeping timelessness to sharkply shifting our attention to the present instant.
David Lacey is a musician from Dublin. He uses drum set, crude electronics, found objects and cassettes. He plays regularly with Rob Casey, Fergus Kelly, Ailbhe Nic Oireachtaigh, Cian Nugent, Colm O'Hara and Paul Vogel, and in the bands Chip Shop Music and Legion of Two. Previous collaborations include Rhodri Davies, Annette Krebs, Keith Rowe and Mark Wastell. He has had music released on the label Another Timbre, Cathnor, Confront, Copy For Your Records, Homefront and Room Temperature. Recent releases have included a duo with Patrick Farmer and a two-band collaboration between Chip Shop Music and Barcelona trio Atolon. He is currently part of the collaborative project Unforeseen with Anthony Kelly, Fergus Kelly, David Stalling and Paul Vogel.
Colm Clarke is an artist based in Belfast and working from Queen Street Studios. His performance work is concerned with ecology, resonance, vibration and the aesthetics of power structures. His collaborative projects (WABFM, starewars, MOOK) utilise strategies of participation and humour to critically question historical and contextual possibilities of artistic endeavour and representation.
Maria Nilsson Waller is a freelance dance artist and choreographer from Sweden. She trained at Harnosands Folkhogskola, Royal Swedish Ballet School and Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance. Since 2009 Maria has based herself in Dublin. Her solo Walker was selected as part of Re-presenting Ireland at the Dublin International Dance Festival in 2011 and has since been presented at a number of festivals around the country, as has her dance-installation Paperwork. In 2010 she was awarded Ostersunds Kulturstipendium which resulted in the piece Ingenmansland - a creation for five dancers and three Swedish folk musicians. Maria is supported by the Arts Council of Ireland, Dance Ireland, Estrad Norr and Lanskulturen, Sweden. In collaboration with these partners, her latest work Last Land was developed and performed in 2012. She is Associate Artist with Dance Ireland 2013/2014..
