Phoenix Rising: Art and Civic Imagination
Éirigh an Fhéinics: Ealaín agus Samhlaíocht Cathartha

This exhibition and related events explore the current place of civic ideals in urban life and contemporary art practice. It references Dublin’s 1914 Civic Exhibition which was inspired by the work of Scottish biologist, sociologist and planner Patrick Geddes and which attempted to re-imagine Dublin as “the phoenix of cities” during a period of economic, social and political strife. The exhibition showcases contemporary artists’ responses to the urban environment using different strategies to understand and represent the city. It includes work by Stephen Brandes, Mark Clare, Cliona Harmey, Vagabond Reviews, Stéphanie Nava and Mary-Ruth Walsh.

Temple Bar Galleries and Studios

Studies on Shivering
Damir Očko (HR)

This exhibition, ‘Studies on Shivering’ represents part of a wider project by the artist Damir Očko (HR). In this project, the artist creates a dialogue between film, poetry, musical scores, objects and drawing to explore a central theme; the shivering body as a metaphor for resistance and unrest. The title of the film in this exhibition, ‘TK’, comes from the phonetic description of the sound of teeth or stones clashing together. These types of sounds create a visceral, psycho-acoustic response in the listener and the effect is one of Očko’s central concerns.

The main element of the exhibition at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios will be comprised of an installation of the film work ‘TK’ (2014). In this film, the central protagonists stand unclothed in a frozen winter landscape, willing themselves to be still in the face of the incontrollable and involuntary bodily function of shivering. This rhythm is mirrored in edited intercuts in the film between this scene and shots of the trembling hand of a man suffering from Parkinsons disease as he struggles to transpose the words of a poem written by Očko. Throughout we can hear the voice of the narrator, reciting the poetry which forms the ‘score’ of the film.

‘Studies on Shivering’ combines elements such as  scores, collages, architectural intervention and collaborations to extend the normal cinematic space and to create a hybrid work in which film, research and poetry are equally weighted.
