Re­flect­ing on time and mo­tion

Wexford People - - NEWS -

All are wel­come to at­tend the open­ing of an ex­hibiti­ion by Joanna Kid­ney en­ti­tled ‘We Are Hurtling into the Fu­ture’ at Wex­ford Arts Cen­tre at 3pm on Satur­day, Septem­ber 15.

The earth ro­tates on its axis at 1600km per hour and re­volves around the sun at a speed of about 30km per sec­ond. All the time our atoms vi­brate, our blood flows and there is con­stant growth and tran­sience. Yet when we are still, we don’t feel this sig­nif­i­cant mo­tion.

The ex­hi­bi­tion con­sist­ing of spa­tial draw­ing and a col­lab­o­ra­tive video work with dancer/ chore­og­ra­pher Li­adain Her­riott re­flects on our re­la­tion­ship with time and mo­tion and the ex­pe­ri­ence of be­ing hu­man in a liv­ing body on an earth mov­ing through the mea­sures of time.

Joanna Kid­ney is a Dublin-born artist liv­ing in Wick­low who has ex­hib­ited widely in Ire­land, France, Ger­many and the USA.

Li­adain Her­riott be­gan her ca­reer as a clas­si­cal bal­let dancer with the Cannes Je­une Bal­let, later chang­ing from clas­si­cal to con­tem­po­rary.

‘We Are Hurtling into the Fu­ture’.
