Portrait Lab, at The Model, SligoSat. 15 October 2022 – Sat. 21 January 2023
Portrait Lab is a thematic exhibition that explores representation through the expanded field of portraiture. The show poses a series of open ended questions about the way in which portraits function, to ask who is reflected in a public portrait collection and who is overlooked.
It includes a range of Irish and international artworks including Ugo Rondinone’s Thanx for Nothing – a film portrait of the poet John Giorno; Phil Collins’ poignant and resonant Baghdad Screentests, 2001; as well as Brian O’Doherty’s Portrait of Marcel Duchamp, a cardiogram reading made in 1966.
The show also features a number of works by Irish artists focused on representing the lived experience of LGBTQ+ communities, travelling communities and people of colour.
“We Are and Are Not, was commissioned by The Model for Psychic Lighthouse. This immersive video installation explores entanglement by blurring the distinction between the performer and the viewer, the self and the other.” Dr. Clodagh Emoe
