As part of the Mer­maid’s fifth birth­day cel­e­bra­tions, Pauline Cum­mins and Aideen Barry cu­rate a day of per­for­mance art, live and on video, from 12 noon till 10 in the evening. Rather than be­ing cen­tred in the gallery, the works reach out into the var­i­ous com­mu­nal spa­ces at Mer­maid and, in­deed, be­yond. First come the live per­for­mances, with Lisa Marie John­son in the Mer­maid Plaza at noon and 5pm, Barry her­self with a sound piece at 2.30pm (also in the Plaza), Frances Mazzetti at 3pm (in the Cash & Carry op­po­site Bray Dart sta­tion), brother-and-sis­ter team Sinead and Hugh O’Don­nell at 4pm (in the Mer­maid’s Multi-Pur­pose Room), Fer­gus Byrne on­stage at 9pm and, some­where in the midst of all this, San­dra John­ston (above) will make some in­ter­ven­tions.

Be­tween 6pm and 10pm, per­for­mance videos by a dozen artists will by screened in the car park. The artists – in many cases also the per­form­ers – are Aine Phillips, Amanda Coogan, Vivi­enne Dick, Aileen Lam­bert, Susan McWilliam, Do­minic Thorpe, Louise Man­i­fold, El­iz­a­beth Por­ritt, Augustine O’Donoghue, Mazzetti, Barry and Cum­mins. Re­cent years have seen some­thing of a re­nais­sance of per­for­mance art in Ire­land, and Terms and Con­di­tions pro­vides an un­miss­able op­por­tu­nity to check out the state of the art.
