Finissage Event: Concluding Episode of ‘Stereo JLG’ at Oonagh Young Gallery, Thursday 6th May 6-8pm * ALL WELCOME *

Oonagh Young Gallery Dublin will host the concluding episode of Stereo JLG / the editing of the trailer by John Lalor, on Thursday 6th May, from 6-8pm. As part of this event, at 7pm, artist JOHN LALOR will be in conversation with MAEVE CONNOLLY, lecturer in the school of creative arts, Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology (IADT) and CHRISTINA KENNEDY, Senior Curator: Head of Collections, Irish Museum of Modern Art.

Stereo JLG / the editing of the trailer is a text-based artwork by Irish artist John Lalor which has been emerging within the pages of the Irish Times newspaper since 8th March. Borne of a nostalgia for newsprint and a salute to 1960s Conceptual art strategies, this artwork has materialised in the domain of traditional mass-media publishing by quietly inserting itself within this broadsheet’s pages in six sequential episodes to date.  The Pilot and earlier episodes appeared within the WorldNews and Bulletin pages on 8th, 13th, 27th March, 10th and 24th April.

Working within the organisational system of the Irish Times, each episode has appeared without caption or explanation, a modestly scaled piece of black text on a red ground, which has fitted in while retaining mutability, a potential to be something else, absorbing and inflecting the tenor of surrounding news and images. Quietly radical, it has re-shaped the landscape of the newspaper as it has passed through.

This is the latest iteration of a text-based artwork which  Paris-based, Irish artist John Lalor created 4 years ago, in response to a major exhibition at the Pompidou Centre, Paris,“Voyage(s) en Utopie, Jean-Luc Godard, 1946-2006,  A la recherche d’un théorème perdu”, celebrating legendary filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard.  Lalor’s text grew out of that encounter, and flows along, unpunctuated, personal and authentic – as he walks in his mind, sketching things out a flâneur amidst his own thoughts.

John Lalor attended Limerick School of Art, Ireland. He lives and works in Paris since 1988 and has exhibited widely in both countries, most recently in Pallas Contemporary Projects, Dublin; Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris; Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin; and Glassbox, Paris, along with film-screenings at SUB:URBAN, Rotterdam, La Fémis cinema in the context of ‘Pointligneplan’, Paris, Centre international d’art & du paysage, île de Vassivière; and Temporarycontemporary, London. He was an active member and director of Glassbox, a pioneering artists-run space from 2004-07 in Paris.

Stereo JLG / the editing of the trailer runs at Oonagh Young Gallery until 7th May

Introducing Stereo JLG/ the editing of the trailer

Posted in Art with tags , , , , , , , , on April 7, 2010 by stereojlg

Stereo JLG / the editing of the trailer is a text- based artwork by Irish artist John Lalor, which is currently emerging within the pages of the Irish Times.  Characterised by black text on a red ground, the work is arranged in 7 episodes.  The pilot and the first episode appeared among the World News pages on 8th March, on the Bulletin page on 13th, another on the 27th March, with forthcoming episodes scheduled for the 10th and 24th April issues. The concluding episode will coincide with an event at the Oonagh Young Gallery, Dublin on 6th May.

This is the latest iteration of a piece which the artist created 4 years ago, in response to a major exhibition at the Pompidou Centre, Paris, “Voyage(s) en Utopie, Jean-Luc Godard, 1946-2006. A la recherche d’un théorème perdu”, celebrating legendary Franco-Swiss filmmaker Jean- Luc Godard, where Godard in true fashion subverted the museum’s curatorial machine to render an event which itself defied any pre-digestion for its audience.  Lalor’s text grew out of that encounter, and flows along, unpunctuated, personal and authentic,  a spinning wheel of images and ideas.

Working within the organisational system of the Irish Times,  its language, format, house style – the siting of each episode depends on the sub-editor’s layout decisions. Modest in scale, it fits in and presents as a piece that can change itself and items around it. It is quietly radical. It re-shapes the landscape of the newspaper as it passes through.

John Lalor attended Limerick School of Art, Ireland. He lives and works in Paris since 1988 and has exhibited widely in both countries, most recently in Pallas Contemporary Projects, Dublin; Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris; Temple Bar Gallery, Dublin; and
 Glassbox, Paris, along with film-screenings
at SUB:URBAN, Rotterdam, La Fémis cinema in the context of ‘Pointligneplan’, Paris, Centre international d’art & du paysage, île de Vassivière; and Temporarycontemporary, London. He was an
active member and director of Glassbox, a pioneering artists-run space from 2004-07 in Paris.  John Lalor is currently working on the publication of a collection of his writings in English and French, entitled ‘Found in translation’, as well as as film project entitled ‘Un incident urbain’ (An urban incident) around French architect Dominique Perrault’s BNF building (the French National Library) and Marin Karmitz’ nearby MK2 independent cinema, featuring actor Jean-François Stévenin and André S. Labarthe (actor, critic, film producer and director).
