Recurrence – Limerick School of Art & Design, Sculpture and Combined Media students showcase their artwork from May 1 – 4.

RECURRENCE showcases new work by nineteen 3rd Year Sculpture and Combined Media students and takes place over 4 days, from 1 May until  4 May 2014 on the site of the old Krupps Home Appliance Factory, Unit F3 Roxboro Road in Limerick City. The curator and students considered the unique history of the building as a site when choosing a venue for this exhibition. “Much of the artwork has been made on site and in relation to the space we hope that it will in turn create a dialogue between the work, space and viewers. A variety of media will displayed include sculpture, photography, film, animation and audio & video installations, drawing and many live performance,” said independent curator Eilís Lavelle who has been working with the students on bringing this exhibition to the public.

Many of the students works are linked by an exploration of the theme of identity. Including work made about the human body, self-portraiture, exploring personal, social and political positions of identity. All the credit goes to the students, their technicians, tutors and their lecturer and renowned artist Aideen Barry who works with the group at the Limerick School of Art and Design, LIT. The students have self-funded the project through a series of events including a masquerade ball, jumble sales, raffles and regular bake sales.

“The work is focused on quite personal interpretations of identity, obsessions, nightmare and surreal perspectives of the world. Other artists have explored subjects such as memory, domesticity and home. The students have been creating and producing work that documents, depicts, reconstructs, or otherwise invokes these public and private spaces, revealing how the studio, factory or the institution function as a places where production, research, experimentation and social activity intersect” stated Lavelle.

There will be five live performances on the opening night from 6 p.m.  – 8 p. m. The exhibition will be open to the public from 11 a.m.  until 4 p. m. from the 2-4th May. Its free entry and all are welcome.
