In response to the exhibition Desire: A Revision and the work of artist VALIE EXPORT, and presented in partnership with Kildare Village, independent curator Vaari Claffey presents an intimate short programme of screenings of artists’ films, soundworks and paintings featuring work by Romana Londi, Philipp Kremer, Sophio Medoidze and others.
The films and soundworks reflect the rhythms and dynamics of repetition and tension as a function of desire, and explore the notion of desire as a function of artworks.
The rhythms will be established or mimicked through a series of artworks presented in a durational programme, during which the audience is seated. Costumes and colour-changing painting works by Romana Londi will be temporarily on view for the duration of the event.
This event takes places within the current installation by Niall Sweeney Club Chroma, commissioned for IMMA as part of the project CHROMA.
The exhibition Desire: A Revision From the 20th Century to the Digital Age; and Desire Nights are proudly supported by Kildare Village.
