Posts Tagged ‘traces of the real exhibition’

After having exhibited a load of these photographs last year in Dublin, I am delighted to say that the show finally hits the road with an exhibition in Cork that opens at the end of this week. It’s happening in Plugd records which is housed within the Triskel Arts Centre on Tobin Street. The Triskel is a wonderful multi-purpose facility that includes a music venue, the Black Mariah art gallery, a cinema, a cafe, a theatre space and more. Plugd records is easily the best record shop in the country at the moment so I’m really excited about having my work on show in that space.

The music venue at Triskel is also fantastic and the photograph above is of The Spook Of The Thirteenth Lock playing there a month or two back. It is one of a whole bunch of new photographs that are going to be in the exhibition. My original intention was to largely reuse work from my Dublin exhibitions last year but when it came down to it, there was too much new stuff that I liked so much that I couldn’t leave out. So, there are shots of The Gloaming, Jello Biafra, Dan Deacon, The Ex and Si Schroeder in there too. The exhibition will be in place on Friday and will run until the start of July.

Photos by Frank Brennan

Last Thursday night saw the opening of the Traces Of The Real exhibition at the Fumbally Exchange in Dublin. I was really happy with the turnout and would like to say thanks to all who made the trip into town to check it out. Wine was drunk, pints were had afterwards, and I got lots of interesting feedback and opinions on what I have been doing. The exhibition runs all next week (Mon 18th – Thurs 21st April, 11AM – 5PM) so anyone who was not able to make the opening has until Thursday to catch it. Several people on the night said to me that the experience of seeing the prints was completely different to seeing the images on the screen, as the printed versions reveal way more detail and texture than the low resolution screen versions can ever do. So, I think it’s well worth trying to come down to the show. (more…)

Mail Order Messiahs playing in Whelans

Here’s a photo I took ages ago that kind of slipped through the net a bit. It’s a band called Mail Order Messiahs playing in Whelans last year, supporting Sleep Thieves. I don’t know why I disregarded it back then as when I look at it now I realise it’s one of the more interesting ones I’ve done in Whelans. As usual it’s an exposure of over 4 minutes but in spite of this the singer on the right is not all blur. He’s been caught multiple times by someone’s flash in the front row and hence several faint but sharp impressions of his head and body ended up on my film. There were a lot of photographers at this gig so this was happening quite a lot. (more…)
