ART I like to eat with my hands Taro Furukata, Ann Maria Healy, dancer/choreographer Claire Huber, and writer/artist duo KVM – Ju Hyun Lee and Ludovic Burel. RGKSKSRG (Rachael Gilbourne and Kate Strain) curated. Wexford Arts Centre, Cornmarket, August 29-October 5, wexfordartscentre.ie Last autumn, five artists spent eight weeks in residence at Cow House Studios in the foothills of the Blackstairs Mountains. Were they changed by the experience?
The answer seems to be a Big Yes if this show is anything to go by. Witness Taro Furukata’s homesick loneliness, Claire Huber’s “wild and comic reach for meaning”, Ann Maria Healy’s search for spiritual guidance and KVM’s drastic “transference of cultural mores”. Curators RGKSKSRG try to make sense of it all.
