Prisoner of Damp Patches
Works by April Gertler
Basement Project Space - Camden Quay, Cork

Explorations in various media including collage, drawing and photography addressing aspects of everyday life – inner dialogues, moments and details the artist sees, hears or considers as she moves through her days. The pieces in this show are a mirror of the quotidian, but taken together, they point to the larger themes running through the artist’s oeuvre: female empowerment; the meaning of time; the complex dynamics of intimate relationships; the anonymity of urban life, and also mobility and globalization.

April was artist in residence in January for the Guesthouse - part of the Cork Artist’s Collective. This is her first solo exhibition in Ireland.  For more information visit:
Additionally April is the founder of Picture Berlin, an artist residency/art academy for artists working with photography.  For more information: /

Stag and Deer present Season 2
Photographs by Maeve O’Neill
Winthrop Arcade, Winthrop Street, Cork
(Adjacent to Oliver Plunkett Street across from the General Post Office)

Maeve O Neill’s work is more akin to dreaming than to documentation, offering thoughts of how we connect with the world we are situated in and how an image may work in our experience. Within this lies a detached quality which infers that the image is more than just data. What is intrinsic to her work is the inevitable, if impossible, wish to see things in totality; which is in essence to want to make a map of the world, to understand; wanting to know and critique the experience of life.
