Campaign to raise money for charities in Germany.
Between the 7th and 14th March 2011 I showed some sculptural work in Exchange Dublin’s Fishbowl Gallery.
It’was a solo exhibition of new art work in this Temple Bar youth arts centre. The work reflected my feelings about the horrifying mix of circus shows and insurmountable economic problems that now characterise Irish politics.
Here in Ireland we’ve got election fever until 25th February.

On Thursday 25th November 2010 I organised a workshop in NCAD to bring artists together to make creative and funny placards to hold in public. Due to further austerity measures that are about to be imposed by the EU, IMF and the Fianna Fáil government in Ireland, there are a lot of protests taking place here.
Against this background of universal broo-ha-ha, I thought it would a worthy contribution to make placards that can transcend ideology, placards that give hope, or simply placards that might make people laugh for a minute in this dark time.
The group that created some fifteen placards on that day agreed to meet up on Saturday 27th November to take part in a large demonstration against the cuts, organised by the Irish Congress of Trade Unions. Here are pictures from that demo, featuring the placards we made.
I have become again fascinated with the beauty in the movements of traditionally ugly creatures, and their reaction human-fabricated surfaces. See my previous video The Day Dublin Airport Stood Still as another example. The video below is best viewed in full screen.
Well, not that RAF. Between today and 4th October, some of my video work will be on display in the window of Superquinn in Ranelagh village, opposite the Luas bridge. This is one of many artworks deposited in the shop fronts of many retailers throughout the Dublin suburb, as part of the sixth annual Ranelagh Arts Festival.
