The ArtistsOn 30 August 2023 by Deej_Fabyc1
The Convergence 2023 artists are:
Venus Patel is a a transfemme artist of colour that uses her work to talk about her experience, trying to navigate living in a conformist society that actively suppresses the “other”.
Mads Floor Andersen explores recycling, risk, breakage, destruction, ruins and being ‘response-able’ to his surroundings.
Erica Felicella -Wilted Remains, is an explorative offering to the rural lands of Ireland to begin a healing process from damage caused to the climate by humankind. Within all chaos there is a calm, a piece of contemplation to no longer hold what is and never was ours to take.
Paul Regan. Where to start. Where to end.These site-specific interventions explore faith, devotion, religious symbolism and [mis]appropriate ritualisic reflections.
Marina Barsy Janer x Isil Sol Vil explore alternative sensitivities that challenge the imposed historical chronologies while suppressing the male/ female dichotomy. Their point of union, as a vanishing point, is a constant pulsation.
Una Lee. She seeks innovation in the contemporary marriage between performance and poetry, drawing from her autobiographical events and her present identity as non-native in her habitat.
selina bonelli. Their work is underpinned by personal and political stories that are often not visible and inarticulatable through language. What types of spaces are needed to be able to connect with other voices, fragments and the imperceptible connections that conflict shatters?
Slavek Kwi is a sound artist interested in the phenomena of perception as the fundamental determinant of relations with reality. An attempt to tune in to the surrounding environment. Every sound has the same potential to interact, all sounds are equal participants in the ecological organism. Listen.
Keike Twisselmann There are more things between heaven and earth than we will ever understand…“
Mariya Hoyin+ Volodymyr Topiy Our performance is based on footage from news networks that cover burials, reburials of tortured and killed civilians during the war in Ukraine.
Satadru Sovan Banduri – I have a very tumultuous love-hate relationship with performance art that I don’t have with other mediums. the work is a state of consciousness, a way to move towards the future.
Hi-Vis Witches invite you to work on the construction of a collective Moon Circle to cement your connection to the moon as a source of power and to psychically renovate your spirit-level. Work gloves and hi-vis jackets are recommended.
Robbie Maguire’s practice is situated in between art and music, incorporating interactive performance and installation
Day Magee Bodyjam A guided kinetic meditation narrated by Day Magee, treating the body and the mind as creative materials so as to generate a collective reality through movement and vocalisation.
Karmel Daly is a multi media artist/singer songwriter and member of IMRO. Presenting a Vocal session.
Rita Marcalo. Instant Dissidence believes in the ecological necessity of shifting art-making away from its current ego-centric paradigm to an eco-centric paradigm.
Mid Life Crisis Presents traditional tunes and well known anthems to sing along to.
Laine and Slatts are joining together for a sibling dynamic duo for the Convergence Festival, featuring elements of ambient, tribal, disco, alternative and deep house.
Surka DJ presents banging tunes, and wild beats.
Sadly due to unforeseen circumstances Kira O’Reilly can not join us this time. We hope to welcome her to Milford House soon.
See you all this weekend.
With Love from Deej Fabyc, Francis Fay, and Sandra Corrigan Breathnach
