NCAD Staff Open Call opportunity 2021
berte & harmey* will be resident in the NCAD Gallery space in June & July 2021 for the research & development of the Dublin version of their Nul Punt Wolk mapping project. During their time at the gallery they will start gathering material around locations they find crucial to highlight as part of their Bare Maps. The Bare Maps are generated by using GIS data and are a physical visualisation of an urban space stripped bare, devoid of buildings and vegetation but leaving tracks and traces of (non-) human activity.
The gallery space will be used as a process-based workspace and field research platform. Chosen locations in and around Dublin 7, 8 and further afield will be thematically interconnected around historic and contemporary understandings of containment, nature, systems, care, control, mental and physical health (sanitas), (in-)visibility. berte & harmey will populate a floor based grid, with the research material, which will also periodically be shared via small-scale projections on the gallery windows.
* berte & harmey was formed by artists Filip Berte (BE) and Cliona Harmey (IE), to share research and resources whilst exploring ideas around spatial politics, critical geography, historical legacies and socio-technical systems of exclusion and inclusion. https://www.nulpuntwolk.nu/
