failure

Viewing failure as a juncture producing unexpected outcomes and new perspectives, exhibition 1: failure posited doubt and uncertainty as an integral and positive part of life. In the exhibition, failure was taken as the starting point for experimentation with language, objects, and the structures integral to society.

In Justyna Kabala’s video work, the viewer was taken on a journey of layered meanings, and incomplete truths, producing multiple readings and possible directions. Jude Crilly’s three-tiered sound installation saw a tortoise racing through a virtual cityscape in a deranged, dystopic future, trying to keep up with his nemesis, the naked hare. Alžběta Kočvarová’s photographs were subject to a fault in the development process, which incidentally accentuated the tension within the subject, while Ciarán Wood’s multi-channel video juxtaposed football images with recorded commentary to reveal that the extreme high of success often precedes failure. Jamie Fitzpatrick’s in-situ installation dealt with the limited function of memory and the insecurity of interpretation, and Richard Hards’ intervention highlighted our dependence on the unseen infrastructure inherent in contemporary life. Finally, the very failure of artistic production was exemplified in an ambitious piece by Rafał Zajko: sending embroidered instruction diagrams to Czech fabricators, his exhibited sculptures were the product of their interpretation of his ideas. Zajko expected the sculptures to hold errors of interpretation and creation inherent to translation and international production processes.
