HOME consists of two distinct yet related exhibitions focusing on the theme of home.

More than Bricks and Mortar: Works from the IMMA Collection is a collaboration between Draíocht and the children from Room 13 Inquiry, providing a unique and exciting opportunity to reflect on meanings of home for children in contemporary Dublin 15, which has a very young, diverse and multi-ethnic population. It has, in fact, the fastest growing young people’s population under 30 in Ireland, with 26% of the population under 15 years of age. Nearly 25% of the population are described as the ‘new’ Irish which is double the national average. Through sharing experiences of home and exchanging skills and knowledge of contemporary art, collections and curating, this collaboration will result in an exhibition that expands perceived notions of home at personal, social and cultural levels and give voice to a new generation of Irish children. The Irish Museum of Modern Art Programme is designed to promote the widest possible involvement with the Museum’s Collection and programmes, through supporting access opportunities to the visual arts in a variety of situations and locations in Ireland. Room 13 Inquiry is an initiative of Fingal County Council’s Arts Office under the direction of Julie Clarke and led by resident artists Orla Kelly and Anne Cradden. Room 13 studios based in Scoil Bhríde Cailíní NS Blanchardstown and Tyrrelstown Educate Together NS are the first such school-based studios to open in the Republic of Ireland.

Carrier of Memories by Ella Bertilsson and Ulla Juske, curated by Sharon Murphy, is a new commission by Draíocht arising from its INCUBATE programme, which supports young and early career artists to expand and develop their practice and make new work resonant with Draíocht’s context. 
Home can be looked upon as a structure confined between fixed points. It can be somewhere private between family members, a comfort zone, a secure place and a ‘carrier of memories’. Home can also be an experience of belonging, a concept beyond a fixed location. It can be a shelter one only sleeps in for the night, a place in transit across a variety of sites. This multi-media installation is the product of research and practice undertaken by the artist-duo Ella Bertilsson (b. Umeå, Sweden) and Ulla Juske (b. Pärnu, Estonia) during their recent residencies in Draíocht and Nordic Artists’ Centre Dale (Norway). The artists are based in Dublin since early 2000s. They started to collaborate during their postgraduate studies on the MFA; Art in the Digital World Programme at NCAD, Dublin (2015).

HOME is shown in the context of Draíocht’s major theatre initiative in October 2018, HOME THEATRE (IRELAND), funded by the Arts Council’s Open Call.

These magical tales will delight children age 3+ and are a colourful introduction to the cinema experience. These short films from a whole host of countries, including Sweden, France, Russia, Germany, Switzerland…
For audiences aged three and older, we’re delighted to present a variety of short tales about going on adventures, making friends, trying out new things and learning new skills. We watch a hungry tiger find a tasty meal (and eat his carrots) and learn how a big, old bear finds his singing voice. A little boy has to save an adventurous fish during a water shortage, and someone desperate to go to sleep learns that there is music all around (whether he likes it or not!).
All these short films are in English or are dialogue-free (except for one with one word of German – and it’s very easy to understand!). These magical tales will delight children age 3+ and are a colourful introduction to the cinema experience as well as moving image literacy.

Culture Night Free Screening / 6PM / Ages 8+ Yrs

Fri 21 Sep 2018 6PM Main Auditorium // FREE

This collection of short films is a patchwork of experiences – funny, sad, thrilling, emotional and, in one particular case, a tad stomach-churning (in a very tasteful way, of course!). Polar bears cross their disappearing ice floes, a stylish cat and an impoverished artist learn to create beautiful artworks together, a perfect gold heist goes horribly awry and the Mona Lisa finds herself in entirely new surroundings. And then there are a couple of very unusual chameleons: one trying to impress a potential mate, and the other? Well, let’s just say it’s a documentary that David Attenborough clearly had no involvement in ... Most of these films are dialogue-free, proving words aren’t always necessary when telling exquisite stories. However, one story is in French with English subtitles and another has a French spoken in the background (subtitles not required). Suited to audiences aged eight and older, please be aware that they do include some cartoon violence, images of a decomposing rat and some very messy eating!
