Crash Ensemble Presents

SAT 3–SAT 24 SEP 2022 (Excl. Sun), 12–5PM
Installation in The Everyman’s back bar
The exhibition is free and walk-ins are welcome.

Crash Ensemble presents Wingform, an installation created by video artist Jack Phelan, which will be displayed in The Everyman’s back bar from Saturday 3 to Saturday 24 September.

Crash Ensemble commissioned video artist and filmmaker Jack Phelan to create an installation responding to the visual themes of Irish composer Barry O’Halpin’s groundbreaking work Wingform – a four-movement work for solo guitar and ensemble, premiered online at New Music Dublin 2021 and released on Crash Records as part of New Music Dublin 2022. 

Using a simple set of shapes, materials and layout, the installation aims to evoke the essence of the ensemble. Empty chairs highlight the absence of the musicians, but offer the audience an opportunity to sit and experience the work in a multimedia environment. Wooden lightboxes, video panels and speakers are the ‘instruments’ of this beautifully crafted ensemble of objects – light and video visually underscoring Barry’s work as it plays on a loop from start to finish.

The video artwork for the LED panels is made specifically for Wingform. Inspired by the composer’s naturistic themes, the imagery on the panels evolves as the piece progresses.

Crash Ensemble is strategically funded by the Arts Council of Ireland.
