Aikaterini Gegisian: Exercises In Speaking Out, Volume 2 (Architecture)

About this event

Aikaterini Gegisian’s practice centres on her personal lived experience of neoliberal regimes and collective narratives of displacement and the diaspora. The often-autobiographical work makes visible governmental tactics toward constructing individual and national identity through censorship and propaganda. Gegisian’s research draws her to a variety of materials exploring popular cultures in Armenia, Turkey and Greece, from tourist catalogues to Soviet photograph albums. Through montage and collage, she brings together fragmented contemporary and historical images, facilitating dialogues across diverse geographical and political contexts.

‘Exercises in Speaking Out, Volume 2 (Architecture)’ is part of an ongoing series of photographic collages by Aikaterini Gegisian that rewrites the history of photography according to eight topologies – nude, architecture, botanical, portraiture, interiors, wildlife, landscape and product – through exposing the patriarchal mechanics behind the material, chemical and technological processes of image production. This exhibition presents the second volume, on the topic of architecture, which deals with relationships between representations of modernist architecture drawn from Soviet and East German sources and photographs exposing the realities of social struggles in Greece during the 1990s.

Organiser Triskel Arts Centre

Organiser of Aikaterini Gegisian: Exercises In Speaking Out, Volume 2 (Architecture)

Triskel Arts Centre is a vibrant cultural HUB in the heart of Cork City and we celebrated 40 years in 2018. Our main auditorium Triskel Christchurch is a multidisciplinary space housed in a fully refurbished neoclassical Georgian Church.

This state of the art venue, which launched in 2011, is programmed with a rich bill of live music, with a focus on Classical and Jazz concerts, cultural cinema, visual art exhibitions and literary events. Triskel also runs a contemporary art room Triskel Gallery Space. Unique in Ireland, Theatre Development Centre is the only fulltime operation dedicated to the development of theatre, this is managed by Corcadorca Theatre Company.

Cork Traveller Women’s Network relocated their Headquarters to the centre in 2018 and continue to have a thriving partnership with Triskel. The Collective Cork, a yoga and dance school, recently joined the Triskel family.
