And now for something completely different.
If you fancy mixing up your routine and taking in an afternoon DJ set inside an immersive collection of art, tomorrow is your lucky day.
Surrounded by items referencing makeshift shamanic shrines and dilapidated places of worship, sub-cultural interests in folk ritual and the hippie communes of the 1960s and 70s, artist Richard Proffitt will be choosing the tunes that best fit his exhibition ‘May the Moon Rise and the Sun Set’ at the UCC Department of Music in Sunday’s Well on Thursday, June 21st.
The installation incorporates elements of sound and video work, including music composed from tape loops of pre-recorded repetitive drone, folk and psychedelic music, cut-up monologues and video from found sources.
Proffitt will discuss the installation with Glucksman senior curator Chris Clarke in a free, public conversation on Thursday, June 20th, 2019 at 1pm.
The talk will be followed by a DJ set by the artist comprising sound-collages related to the installation and its unique architectural setting.
Beats a soggy sandwich and an instant coffee at your desk, right?
