CMC presents 2 short films by Irish composers and visual artists

The Contemporary Music Centre’s Platform for Performance presents a cross art-form night of contemporary music and visual art with the screening of two short films, 6pm – 7pm, Tuesday, 15 November 2011.

Relic by composer Rhona Clarke (left) and visual artist Marie Hanlon is a short film approximately ten minutes in duration which draws its visual material from the Burren landscape of North Clare in Ireland. Initially the sequences seem to be unconnected but gradually a pattern of cycles emerges: the cycle of the tides, the cycle of the seasons and ultimately the cycle of life and death. Relic was first viewed at the 8th Burren Annual exhibition, curated by Josephine Kelliher, 27 August 2011. The exhibition ran from 27 August 2011 to 24 September 2011.



The Sea by composer Stephern Gardner (left) and visual artists Gary Coyle is a collaborative film which explores a shared passion for the sea. It was commissioned by Wexford County Council under a Per Cent for Art Scheme in 2005 as part of a new round of commissions open to all disciplines inclusive of writers, choreographers, artists, filmmakers, etc. Coyle and Gardner’s collaborative film is an exploration of the sea along the 200 kilometers of Wexford Coastline. The project was curated by Cliodhna Shaffrey. Their film was screened for a week at Christ Church Old School, Gorey.
