Dumbworld Gallery Takeover Pop-up Exhibition
RCC Gallery 1
6pm – 10pm
Dumbworld is an artist-led creative production company founded by composer Brian Irvine and director John McIllduff. They make work that is found at the intersection of music, image and words including film, opera, documentary and animation.
Join them in RCC Gallery 1 for the premiere of ‘Topography of Love’, an animated video-game opera experience and street opera projections ‘Two Angels’ and ‘Drive By Shooting’.
A New Topography of Love is an animated video-game opera experience played on a bespoke arcade console. It tells the tale of the earth-ravaged by waste and excess and almost too late to save-but the animals that remain become our teachers, reminding us of the essence of living and that there is nothing more important than our voice. The piece plays out across three interactive levels, all with one goal in common – to spread the love.
Exhibition Opening Mary Toland – Custodians
6pm – 8pm
Mary Toland is inspired by the many wonderful characters and vistas of her locale, her portraits, landscapes and fabric work embody the spirit of North Donegal. This collection of portraits is based on recognising ordinary people who are “Custodians” in one form or other.
It is the unique character of the landscape and people of Donegal that inspire her work. Nestled in this elemental landscape are small communities of hill farmers, fishermen, musicians, visual artists, poets & dreamers.
Born and brought up in Clonmany, Inishowen, Mary has lived on Arranmore Island and now lives and works In Gortahork. Surrounded by the Derryveagh Mountains and facing the wild atlantic coast and Islands, this elemental landscape and its people are the primary inspiration for her work.
