FALLING OUT OF STANDING
Film installation by David Bolger, Owen Boss, Louise Lowe
FALLING OUT OF STANDING was borne from the 2016 production of THESE ROOMS. A stand alone structure with three filmic works by David Bolger, Owen Boss and Louise Lowe that inverts traditional concepts of exterior and interior, FALLING OUT OF STANDING aims to extend the debate beyond the interaction of performance and site.
Extending the exploration of source material related to of the North King Street massacre and the subsequent live production of THESE ROOMS, the installation aims to contextualise how the past is propelled into the present and the impact of time on conflicted histories through the form of film.

THESE ROOMS began as an Open Call National Project in ART: 2016: The Arts Council’s programme as part of Ireland 2016. ART: 2016 was a diverse and distinctive public showcase of Irish art which was presented across Ireland and abroad throughout the year. By supporting THESE ROOMS, the Arts Council placed artists and the arts at the centre of how it responded to the Centenary of the 1916 Rising. ART: 2016 was supported by the Department of Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht through its Ireland 2016 Centenary Programme. Find out more…
