Now here's something cool to check out this weekend...
Fla?neur By Dublin is an art installation that brings the commissioned works of two great contemporary photographers to Smithfield. Displayed in a series of large cubes, their work disperses over a metal pathway installed in Smithfield Square. At dusk the cubes become lightboxes displaying the photographers' work.
The two selected artists for Fla?neur By Dublin are Esther Teichmann from Germany and Rik Moran from the UK. Both artists spend a residency in Ireland earlier on this year, to create the body of work which will be shown in Smithfield Square.
Fla?neur By Dublin is part of a larger project called Flâneur - New Urban Narratives. This is a new, European Union funded, 2 year long project, transforming photographers into fla?neurs and requesting them to apply a new approach to their work within the urban territory. The project involves an international network of some 20 organisations from 11 different countries, and it will be presented in the 13 partner cities.
The exhibition launches at 7pm on July 2, and will run every evening from 7pm to 9pm until 24 July in Smithfield Square.
