John Galvin – at once a surface and a frame

PhD student, John Galvin, has a solo exhibition at the Steam Box, part of the Irish Museum of Contemporary Art. The show opens Thursday, September 13, at 6pm. The gallery is open Tuesday-Sunday 12-5.

“The exhibition examines the window as a liminal surface; both the surface of the projection screen and the space it enframes. The videos offer a fractured surface where the ‘sutures’ between multiple temporalities are left visible. The works explore a visuality where simultaneity rather than sequentiality is foregrounded – multiple fragments of the past anamnetically inscribed into the present.

John Galvin is a multimedia artist living and working in Limerick. He completed a Masters in Music Technology, specialising in electroacoustic composition, at the University of Limerick in 2008 and is currently there completing a PhD by Practice. His research focuses on the layering of many different temporalities within a single work and the ‘presence’ associated with different media”
