anne maree barry says hi

I started this blog in 2007. No one had heard of The Wire and I was making experimental films that a select few saw. My initial tagline for this blog was: 'I write concisely. always. I'm trying to improve this - however, sometimes few words work better'. Then I found Twitter. However, I still post here once a week, so feel free to comment or just to simply say hii.

Competitive Landscapes is a collection of moving image works by contemporary Irish artists. The Ireland of today presents us with a radically renovated social landscape - a country transformed by fifteen years of economic boom, unprecedented immigration, and an uneasy peace in the North. Against this backdrop a vibrant art scene has also grown over the last decade. Some of the works in the programme explore the residue of this history, ideas of recall and re-enactment, some collapse these narratives and timelines into contemporary contexts. The programme brings together a diverse collection of Irish artists; from Vivienne Dick who first came to prominence with her No Wave Super 8 films shot in New York in the late 1970's, to artists such as Anita Delaney and Niamh Murphy who are showing their first videos here.

Curators
Nicky Gogan set up the Darklight Film Festival in 1999 to provide a platform for Irish and international artists and film makers through screening programmes, exhibitions, seminars, and an international touring programme. Nicky worked as curator of exhibitions at The Digital Hub and is a founding member of DATA, the Dublin Art and Technology Association, a development group to encourage creative dialogue between film, art, and technology.

Born in Dublin, based in Brooklyn, Paul Rowley works primarily with film, video and photography. He has worked in collaboration with Memphis born artist David Phillips since 1998. David and Paul were recently commissioned to create a permanent multi-screen artwork for LAX airport, and were awarded the Glen Dimplex Artists’ Award, the Irish Museum of Modern Art’s annual contemporary art prize. Paul also won the 2006 Irish American Arts Awards, in both the under 35 category and the overall prize.

Nicky and Paul’s first feature film, a documentary called Seaview, was shot in Mosney, Ireland’s Coney Island - a former holiday camp which is now used as a holding center for asylum seekers. The film premiered at the Berlin Film Festival in February.
