About the Artist
Jordan Hearns (b. Laois, 1995) is a socially engaged Irish artist. His practice explores the significance of spaces as vessels for individualism and expression, explored within the contexts of time, memory and ephemerality. His photographic works document transient street flowers, short-lived clubbing spaces and underground clubbing/queer communities. In his most recent work he combines mixed media, moving image and audio curation, as well as a series of artist editioned publications.
Jack Scollard has a BA Fine Art Print with Critical Cultures from National College of Art and Design. His practice is concerned with exploring themes of monumentality, the body and ideas of the anti-monument. The process underpinning this body of work is designed to visually interrogate what it means for images to be extracted, reproduced and reappropriated. As reinterpretations based on a series of graphite drawings of outdoor gym equipment, the sculptural works are conceived as frivolous provocations of the logic that reframes and promotes the body as a site of labour, in which health is a commodity to be earned. As well as this, the sculptures are to be considered as a mimicry of the body itself. Encased by a fleshy gold paint, these light but rigid plaster frames represent speculative endoskeletons or abstracted embodiments. Their eerie mid-air suspension connotes the modes of display of the deceased in natural history museums, perhaps implying that they are relics; monuments to our bodily decay. 1
