        The video offers an exclusive look behind-the-scenes at John Myers' exhibition at the Gallery of Photography, as well as featuring the artist himself discussing some of what motivated the work. Using a large format camera, Myers was pioneering in his treatment of the everyday as a photographic subject, capturing a particular moment of social transition simply on the basis of his attention to the people and places that surrounded him. The Gallery of Photography is pleased to present this unique opportunity to view a groundbreaking body of work. This exhibition was made possible by the generous collaboration of the Ikon Gallery and the Library of Birmingham.

        • Installation of THE MARKET, Gallery of Photography, Dublin, August-October 2013

          ...what people don’t understand... is that what happens in the market is pivotal to their lives... not on the periphery, but slap, bang, in the middle... – From telephone conversation with Trader (name withheld), Dealing Room, Investment Bank, London, February 2013) THE MARKET A Project by Mark Curran Curated by Helen Carey Literally and metaphorically, the sphere where our futures are speculated upon - this is what Mark Curran's challenging new project THE MARKET sets out to make visible. In the evolutionary aftermath of the global economic collapse, how do the global stock and commodity markets function beyond the iconography of the sites of the trading floor. Continuing a cycle of long-term projects focused on the predatory impact of global capital, Curran explores these sites and beyond to try and elaborate an understanding of what is deciding our futures. For this ambitious undertaking, Irish-born artist Curran contacted specific stock and commodity exchanges around the globe. Negotiating access to these international exchanges took on average over 18 months, and indeed are ongoing in some countries. For the installation in the Gallery of Photography and Belfast Exposed, Curran exhibits photographs, film, artefactual materials, sound and verbal testimonies. The installation includes work made in the Irish Stock Exchange in Dublin; the financial centres of Canary Wharf and The City, London; the Deutsche Borse in Frankfurt, and in the recently established Ethiopian Commodity Exchange in Addis Abeba, the youngest exchange in the world. Acknowledging the technological evolution of the markets towards primarily non-human apparatus, generated from algorithms identifying the words market or markets from speeches given by the Irish Minister of Finance (Dublin) and the British Chancellor for the Exchequer (Belfast), the soundscape of the installation represents the defining sound of the market, the sound of Capital through the conjuit apparatus of the Nation-State. Curran focusses on the individuals who labour within the heart of global capitalism, underlining the human stories at the centre of this most complex of functions. It therefore lends particular resonance to the centenary events marking the 1913 Lockout, which marked the streets of Dublin at the time, but left deep scars on a newly emerging Republic. The implicit critical resonance associated with this event of exclusion, omission and invisibility regarding labour and its defining relationship to capital remaining ever pertinent, ever urgent. Joining together with CCA Derry Londonderry, Belfast Exposed, Temple Bar Studios & Gallery and Limerick City Gallery of Art, this exhibition shows how contemporary art is concerned with how unknowingly people work and live, within systems that govern the detail of life. Algorithm and installation sound design by Ken Curran The installation of THE MARKET is one of the keynote visual art events marking of the centenary of the 1913 Lockout. The project is curated by Helen Carey, Director Limerick City Gallery of Art, and supported through Projects Funding from the Arts Council of Ireland, Faculty of Film, Art and Creative Technologies, Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT) in addition to support from Department of Foreign Affairs, Government of Ireland, and Dublin City Council. The project is partnered by Gallery of Photography, Dublin, Belfast Exposed Photography, Limerick City Gallery of Art, Arts Council of Northern Ireland and CCA Derry-Londonderry.

                • Special Treatment - Installation

                  Special Treatment is an installation consisting of a number of related works that results from a deep meditation on the enduring presence of a historically contested site: the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp. An important part of historical record is the relationship between the material remains and what can be understood. This work focuses on modes and practices of re-presentation in order to attempt to represent that which persists: forms of memory, the activity of witnessing and the relationship between absence and presence. A projected film with a first-person voiceover considers the limits of representation in trying to reconcile the horrific past of the site with the contemporary tourist destination that exists today. The photographic component of installation functions as a dialogue between the past and the present, the record of a series of attempts to re-capture the four photographs taken by Sonderkomando members in 1944 at Birkenau’s crematorium V. The gesture to re-create those photographs results in a kind of representational failure. While the film presents the camp as it is experienced now, the photobook functions as a deconstruction of Wanda Jakubowska’s narrative film, The Last Stage, which was made in Auschwitz in 1947. The film explores the experience of the camp from a female perspective, through a number of key characters. Using stills and image fragments, the photobook is a commentary on images, their use and their power to tell a story, while emphasizing the distorting aspect of fictional representation.
