David Fagan: Sensation

Thursday 12 April – Saturday 16 June 2012
David Fagan: Sensation | Thursday 12 April – Saturday 16 June 2012 | Project Arts Centre

Opening Reception Thursday 12 April from 6pm to 8pm

Coinciding with the exhibition A MacGuffin and Some Other Things, Project Arts Centre continues its new experimental Grotto series, with an installation by David Fagan entitled Sensation. Fagan works with the idea of a ‘dirty work’ – an object that is aesthetically pleasurable and ready for display, but that is also self-consciously underdeveloped as a finished artwork.

In this way, Fagan poses the question: ‘how and where does one display a guilty pleasure?’ Engaging with the idea of the cabinet as a less salubrious, low-rent space, Fagan re-imagines it as prime real estate for a peepshow.

Throughout the year further emerging artists will be selected to exhibit in the Grotto. They will be given carte blanche in order to conceptualise and transform this space which is located adjacent to the work of the main exhibition space and program.
