exhibition

University of Ulster MFA Graduate Exhibition

This is the only reason I know I'm getting older. Year after year, I visit it and wish I had a creative talent. Alas, it isn't so, and you leave the exhibition feeling happy-sad that beauty is in such safe hands. Two Le Cool contributing photographers, Des Moriarty and Oliver Smith, are showing in this year's crop of MFA graduates. Des' project is a primary-plastic hued examination of processed food. It's gross, but shiny and fun, like a fifties themed diner. Oliver has gone into battle, documenting the youth of today in a pure, non-judgemental form, creating mist in the midst of the party. Leading commercial photographer Simon Burch has stretched his fine art chops with a US-based project, and Johnny Savage creates beauty out of dereliction. Bursting with Irish photographic talent, the Belfast course is earning its reputation as the course that separates the wheat from the chaff, so all the more reason to check it out. / Kate Coleman

Always Alone Together

From a group of nerdy teens who had never belonged before, to the redefining of a norm where having hundreds of friends is nothing unusual, Always Alone Together tells us the history of the internet and how those who were instrumental in its creation fundamentally changed how humankind interacts. Striking a fine balance of storytelling and history, this show blurs the boundaries between theatre, lecture and podcast and, in turns ubiquitous and bibliographic, tells us the meaning of what it is to truly connect to others. Cathal Maguire’s incredible research and emotive performance combine to form a piece which is as amazingly informative as it is emotive and poignant. Following an explorative stint in The Collaborations Festival in Spring, Game Theory is back with a re-tweaking of the beautiful and enlightening Always Alone Together. / Jack Gibson

gig

Cloud Castle Lake

Question: Which Dublin band have been together since their school days, played bunches of acclaim-garnering gigs, offered up some neat cover versions, graced lots of “ones to watch” lists but still haven’t released a song? The answer would have been Cloud Castle Lake until this week’s release of the trio’s (understatement alert!) long-awaited début EP, Dandelion. So, was it worth the wait? Definitely. On a local level think Halves crossed with James Vincent McMorrow; on an international scale, Radiohead’s detail-riddled, deconstructed anthem DNA is all over their intricately produced songs. Hopefully, a full album of material isn’t far down the line but in the meantime buy the EP, get to this launch gig and mark them down as erm… “ones to watch”. / Brian Keane

Pantha du Prince

Given that Hendrik Weber started issuing his often breathtaking body of work through Dial, one of those record labels whose every release is greeted with hushed reverence, when he jumped ship to Rough Trade, there were some who assumed his output would suffer. Not so Pantha du Prince. The album Black Noise from 2010 encapsulates his trademark crystalline creations which are both cinematic and ethereal in ambient scope, yet retain a steady dancefloor bump any house and techno fan would dig. The carefully controlled chaos you hear in his production results in some of the most immediately accessible dance music around. Not everyone was down with his ambitious Elements of Light album with The Bell Laboratory in 2012 but you’ve got to hand it to Hendrik, he’s not resting on his laser-cut laurels.

Martcade Thrift Market

The idea of a thrift market seemed so glamorous when I was a ten year old, reading weird American YA fiction about two sisters - the cool one who bought her clothes from thrift stores and went to Yale, and the sap one who made her own clothes and wound up working in a haberdashers (but ends up marrying the cool sister's high school boyfriend, who was probably called Logan, cus Y.A = SchWHY.A.) Anyway, the whole thing convinced me that thrift gets you the shift, and that you should keep your passion for Butterick patterns and haberdashery well under wraps of dodgy 1980s ski jackets and granny-knitted illegally merchandised Disney jumpers. If you are of a similar spiritual and material outlook, hotfoot it to Martcade for a 2014 update on the church bazaar. Rummage amongst the bric a brac for your new, cool look. It's what big sister would do. / Kate Coleman

Potion of Oblivion

Block T have gained a reputation as a venue for music nights without the dickheads, to put it unpolitely, and the latest of these is Potion of Oblivion, which isn't quite the Wicked Witch nightmare that the title suggests. Featuring DJ sets by the organiser and curator, Somadrone, an a couple of his cool, electro-chic pals, including Cian Murphy (I Am the Cosmos) and Anthony Patterson (Twin Kranes), what you are assured is a BYOB (and mates) experience that is all about the music. If the posters (designed by M&E, swit swooo!) don't have you confident enough in this new, monthly night, the promise of disco, minimal new wave, krautrock and more should have you descending on Dublin 7 en masse. Just sayin', this writer caught one of the esteemed DJs (to remain unnamed) grooving to Eisbaer last weekend, so here's hoping for more of the same. / Kate Coleman

Late Harvest Feast

It was during my hobbyist fish mongering phase that I first made the acquaintance of young Giles Clark. A mere pup of an undergraduate at the time, this urbane and impeccably polite chap (with a penchant for wearing multiple shirts) would entertain me with orders like ’22 langoustines and 14 monkfish livers please’. He was of course buying for his now legendary Whitefriar Suppers, where the likes of me got to drink out of jam-jars before you did. Following stints in the kitchens of Noma, Alinea and Chez Panisse he returns for a one-off ‘Late Harvest Feast’ in the formal garden maze at IMMA to close their ’Summer Rising’ season. This young turk cooks with real wit and invention, you need to taste his food. One last hurrah before the nights begin to draw in… / Mr & Mrs Stevens
