ESSOFREE/FORESEES

Essofree/Foresee explores life during and after the deterioration of sight and how we try to adapt. Spread across three sections, the first is multiple prints of the same image viewed through different prescription lenses. The lenses become gradually stronger, demonstrating the deterioration; a clever idea, if a bit dizzy-inducing. The second is another image which Moran-Woods asked onlookers to describe. The descriptions vary from detailed outlines, to philosophical one liners about life passing by, while the final section is made of pieces of clothing with various trinkets sewn into them. The trinkets act as a code; pink bobbly beads on pink clothes, black spiders on black and so on. The wearer can feel a matching outfit together. The exhibition communicates the difficulties of relying on the sight of others and how a partially sighted person is only ever getting an interpretation of the world from another, to then re-interpret themselves. / Frida Kilburn

Cake

Jennifer Aniston, Hollywood's coolest woman. Sassy (she was offered a featured player role on SNL), she lit up films such as Office Space and Along Came Polly, but it always felt like the froth of the material hampered her professional reputation. Until now. With Cake, Aniston has acknowledged that Hollywood will only give its leading ladies a moment in the limelight if they sacrifice their good looks and smiles in the name of art. The result is an achy exploration of chronic pain, the relationships it demolishes, and the lust for release that such biting, constant pain can inspire. It also examines love, sympathy and empathy, and Aniston's performance is quite touching and human. Stepping into her character's world may not be enjoyable, but it is certainly rewarding. / Kate Coleman

Welcome Disturbances

What happens when art and science collide? No, the Lab Gallery isn’t hosting some offbeat take on the Higgs Boson, instead it is the venue for an exhibition of works that asks important questions. Can we compare art and science? Should we have to? Is there a way they can co-exist and explore new ways of understanding the world? By teaming up, students from NCAD and UCD have opened up discussion on their practices. In an exchange of informed and creative ideas, they have been allowed to work outside of their boundaries. If you have ever found yourself wondering what the internal spaces of your consciousness looks like (admit it, who hasn’t!), then you are in for a treat. With a programme of free events over the next few months, this promises to be an exhibition that will break down the walls that divide science and art. / Julieanne McMahon
