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.

little boots
I love how Little Boots integrates the stylophone into her track Meddle. She also does a great version of Wiley's 'Wearing My Rolex' - see video below. A star is born.

I've lost my voice, have a killer sore throat, am staring blankly into space for no apparent reason - i am ill. The clip below makes me laugh though. It captures nepotism, egotism and the struggle to succeed..

art in the domestic space
I really like what curators Mary Grehan and Claire Meaney are up to in Waterford. Having previously worked with them on the exhibition Passengers they asked me did I have new work for Trick or Treat. Trick or Treat aimed to explore the domestic space as a context for viewing art. I submitted Anamnesis. In Anamnesis, real and fictitious stories merge, to create a piece of work that could have supernatural qualities. Above are installation shots of Anamnesis and other works installed in Claire Meaney's house, on Wilkins Street, Waterford.

The exhibition also included work from Aileen MacKeogh, Stephen Brandes, Emer Gillespie, Jane McGarrigle, Kim Cunningham, Sean Lynch, Bern Roche Farrelly, Dan Monks, Anthony Costine, Sharon Kelly, Mary Grehan and Claire Meaney.

Oslo Streets
bike envy
My work was screened here at Cinemateket

Things that caught my eye in Oslo. I cannot recall seeing anyone out of the ordinary fashion-wise, but I did meet a Portuguese guy with a great mustache.

Oslo Screen Festival
Highlights of the international video art festival included Beside the pond - Min Lan, China and Super Smile - Effie Wu, Taiwan. Both works were quite annoying but perhaps that's the reason I haven't forgotten them. My own work Anamnesis was presented on the second day of the festival. It surprised some viewers as they believed it was shot on 16mm which it wasn't - kudos for me. The best video award went to Coagulate, (2008) Mihai Grecu which was produced by Le Fresnoy. Below is a clip from the film.
