Come rot your teeth and sweeten your senses at the Sugar Coated Visual Art Exhibition

Opening reception 18th March 6-8pm.

Viewing 19th + 20th of March 1-7pm.

The aesthetics of anything can conceal any number of realities. Delicious decadence or grim and gross? What does this mean to the students and artists of today in our culture of sweet lies and saccharine cover-ups? How do we look beyond the glazed exterior of modern society and culture to the less than appealing centre?

The Exhibition will be launched with a sweet and drinks reception before the unveiling of the selected work and the announcement of the most mouth-watering or stomach-churning piece. The winner will receive €400 and the honour of the Sugar Coated award for Visual Arts. The event will judged and curated by a prestigious group of artists and professionals from within the industry.

The Sugar Coated group comprising of Arts Management and Business students from the Institute of Art, Design and Technology, Dun Laoghaire have selected the sweetest and sickliest of up and coming underground artists in the visual arts world. The artists have been asked to deliver their own unique interpretation of the Sugar Coated theme.

"My head is a beach head and the troops are pounding through the surf" - Jeffrey Gormly

nervousystem has stepped purposefully onto a path of experimentation… The bravery of this undertaking is arresting.
The Irish Times

Weaving the Cry is a journey through a dark wave toward a threshold that is both an end and a beginning. It explores our capacity for survival inside the rituals of living and dying. This re-working confronts the scenario of Syngeʼs play, exposing a complex and eternal bond between mother and son concentrated in the relationship between Mauyra, the missing Michael, and Bartley, her only remaining son of six. On the crest of a wave of loss, with Michaelʼs absence and Bartleyʼs dangerous sea crossing, the inevitable and its repercussions must be reconciled by those left behind, three women, a mother and her two daughters, Cathleen and Nora.

Directed by Aiden Condron and performed by Marián Araujo, Sophie Campbell, Joseph Moylan and Gemma McGill, with dramaturgical assistance from Jeffrey Gormly; this performance, integrating traditional songs from Ireland and Galicia, sees the company weave its unique experience and approach to theatre-making into a stark re-imagining of one of the greatest dramatic works from the Irish literary canon.

Since its inception in 2002 Nervousystem, a Dublin-based theatre laboratory, have established themselves in Ireland and abroad by promoting experimentation and innovation of the highest quality. They continue to forge new ground in the area of active performance research while building a repertoire of critically and publicly acclaimed performances such as Fire Face (2003), Aversion (2004), Park Action (2005) and last years The Myth and the Flesh, also presented at The Back Loft.
