The artist and engineer Adrian Duncan is currently exhibiting The Difference in How I Believe You in The Dock Gallery 2 as part of The Borders project. This exhibition is a research based project looking at the architectural language of the curtain wall construction used on roundabout commercial developments outside of large rural Irish towns in the decade or so. There is a curtain wall installed in the gallery space, across from which there is a looped audio piece of a local historian describing the farm and bog implements in his collection.
Alongside the exhibition, there are two additive elements to the project:
On the 23rd August:
2pm: Paddy Egan, a local historian, will present his collection of farm and bog implements
4pm – 6pm: The gallery will host an intervention by Adrian Duncan and Marta Fernández Calvo titled:”Instructions on How to Survey a Roundabout Commercial Development“.
On the 15th September:
11am: There will be a talk “Practices between art and Architecture” as part of the Inspirational Homes Leitrim weekend. This talk will feature presentations by Nuala Flood (architect) Marta Fernández Calvo (artist) and Adrian Duncan. There will then be a conversation on the subject of architectural practices used in contemporary art, and vice versa. This talk will be chaired by Declan Long of NCAD.
