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, wex­for­darts­cen­ 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.
