Jumping for Theresa Nanigian…
In autumn 2012 the Artist Theresa Nanigian will exhibit her work in our first floor Gallery space. Her current visual arts practice concentrates on identities of young adults. For this exhibition she has taken numerous large scale photographs of young adult’s bedrooms. On one tall wall in the gallery space, along side these photographs, will run about 70 reproductions of her “I am” surveys, which have been anonymously filled in by people aged 13-24years from around Ireland for the last year or more. They were filled in by respondents repeatedly completing the sentence I am..., for example “I am often irritated by other peoples opinions” and so on for about 25 sentences. For a third element of the exhibition, Theresa came to D15 Youth Theatre with a request to take photographs of our members Jumping. The idea being that a person’s jump could represent their personality…..
....and because we have such a brilliant youth theatre, full of fabulous personalities- we obviously did a brilliant job!
Keep an eye out for this exhibition later in the year.
