Dublin-based recent graduate reading group. We commenced in September 2017 and meet every second week.
A Group Exhibition (entitled HEAVY WEATHER) of participating artists took place from 29 August - 3rd September 2018 in The Complex, Dublin.
“HEAVY WEATHER’s origin is a reading group convened in September 2017 by artist Emma McKeagney, to consider New Materialism in its implications for art practices.
Generous explorations of materiality as an enigmatic potential, reworking of human relations with entities and agencies, and spectres of environmental collapse, have intrinsically or tangentially informed the practices – and affect the artists – collected here.
Deriving from the 1977 album by fusion group Weather Report, HEAVY WEATHER is a provisional encounter of disparates, forced by contemporary exigencies. It is a settled but uncertain address, a dose of talk about the weather.
Louisa Casas, Ann Ensor, Adam Goodman, Milica Jovanovic, Danny Kelly, Emma McKeagney, Ciara McMahon, Cliodhna O’Riordan.”
