Female-led contemporary Dublin arts organisation, ISLO Collective, host their debut exhibition As You Can Tell in Studio 10, Wicklow Street April 30 and May 1.
‘As You Can Tell’ will immerse audiences in an audio-visual installation exploring the theme of magical realism. The installation features the work of four female Dublin-based artists including sound artists Lara Gallagher, Aoife DeMille, and visual artists Alana McDonough, and Suibhne Bichon Durand. The aim of this collaborative initiative is to provoke a sense of collective identity and community driven by a unique combination of auditory and visual stimuli. The inspiration for this work was derived from the dearth of sensual and community based art during the pandemic. From Sean-nós style sonic improvisation to immersive Arduino technologies this installation hopes to provide audiences with a meditative space to reflect and engage with an amalgamation of art forms.
The ISLO Collective is a female-led multi medium art collective and organisation based in Dublin. Founded and created by sound artists Lara Gallagher and Aoife DeMille, ISLO aspires to develop an eclectic curatorial vision which actively promotes and advocates for emerging artists in Ireland. Through the development of distinctive exhibitions and events, the collective seeks to create inimitable and collaborative experiences for their audiences, expanding their community of emerging artists to create a new platform for artistic expression in Dublin.
‘Returning from my studies in Berlin, I felt the urge to create a space for collaboration, prioritising the creation of new styles of work among young artists from different mediums. The ISLO Collective was born during the pandemic when Aoife and I were reimagining our lives as artists and realising the need for spaces in Ireland that prioritise contemporary inter-disciplinary work.’ – Lara Gallagher
