‘A sense of unity and a sense of can do it’

Well, there was so much sporting excitement over the weekend that it was hard to cope with, and hard to know what to concentrate on at any one point. Because of the national implications, I’ll plump first for Shane Lowry. What a player, what a guy, what a man. He really showed everyone how victory can be attained, how to handle it, and above all how to show your appreciation.

Peter Spiers exhibition leads the line-up at Ballina Arts Centre

This exhibition of photography and video works addresses the possibilities of the image from a phenomenological position. It examines the state of the image in its relation to actuality, taking references from diverse subjects as Mikhail Bakhtin, Jacques Rancière, and Laurel and Hardy films. Usually we engage with images through a system of representation; of signs, signifiers, appropriations, referents and stand-ins. This exhibition looks to place the image in the actual, operating in the immediate. It is the image as process in operation that we are confronted with here. Using elements of humour, empathy, mimicry, and aesthetics the works on show encourage us to move on from our usual abstracted way of looking at an image, bringing it to a point where it becomes a part of our lived experience. This exhibition turns on its head our usual way of engaging with the image.
