Cut Throat crosses the divide between art and medical science,
challenging the conventions of both worlds and prompting conversation
about how people live with ME (Myalgic Encephalomyalgia)/CFS (Chronic
Fatigue Syndrome). Cut Throat is an attempt to make visual the impact
of living with long-term illness, using the analogy of the freedom of
the bird as an axis for the investigation of the physical limitations
and vulnerability of the human condition.
Supported by Dublin City of Science 2012, this exhibition at The LAB
pushes Tynan’s work beyond the fixed manifestations of installation
with an explorative performance from contemporary dancer, Rachel
Ensor, whose opening night performance will be filmed and screened
throughout the show. The exhibition will also encourage discourse
between the artistic, scientific, and medical community through a
series of talks focusing on arts and health practices.
