  • Title: Uriel Orlow
  • Venue: Visual
  • Start Date/Time: 21/09/2018, 14:00
  • Details: Digital Gallery Part-documentary film, part sci-fi, Remnants of the Future portrays the precarious existence in a post-Soviet ghost-town - a modern ruin that is still waiting to fulfil its utopian ambition of communal living. It is set in Northern Armenia in a vast, unfinished housing project called Mush, built on the orders of Mikhail Gorbachev to house the people displaced by the 1988 Spitak earthquake. The collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 abruptly halted the ambitious housing development and it has since remained in a ghostly unfinished state, inhabited only by migrating birds and isolated human scavengers who salvage scrap metal out of the hollow shells of concrete and live in parts of the big, skeletal housing blocks. As the day turns into night, the soundscape, composed by Mikhail Karikis, moves from the sounds of everyday activities to modulations of radiowaves emitted by pulsars, or dying stars, which still reach us after the star has died. Out of this electro-acoustic cloud a woman’s voice announces: “I am an emissary from the future….” a snippet from the time travelling character in 1930’s film The Bathhouse by Mayakovski, inviting those left behind by failed state capitalism to join her in the commune of the future. Cinemascope video with stereo sound 1718", 2010-12 About the Artist: Uriel Orlow lives and works between London, Lisbon and Zurich. He studied at Central Saint Martins, the Slade School of Art and the University of Geneva, completing a PhD in Fine Art in 2002. Orlow’s practice is research-based, process-oriented and multi-disciplinary including film, photography, drawing and sound. His work has been presented at major survey exhibitions including the 54th Venice Biennale (2011), 8th Mercosul Biennial, Brazil (2011), Aichi Triennale (2013); Manifesta 9 in Genk (2012); Bergen Assembly (2013), Qalandia International (2014) EVA International (2014, 2016), 13th Sharjah Biennial 13 (2017), 7th Moscow Biennial (2017).

This acknowledgment comes after decades of persecution. The Stateless an archival exhibition at VISUAL documents the journey that the Rohingya community in Carlow have taken, and reflects on the tragic inhumanities that continue to be inflicted on the Rohingya in Myanmar. Photographs taken by Mohammed Rafique in 2017 show the suffering endured by the Rohingya in Myanmar and the camps in Bangladesh; drawings and paintings reflect on the communities cultural identity and an archive of information about the Genocide of the Rohingya calls on the public to witness and be aware of this crisis, and the lives of those who have been displaced, persecuted, murdered and tortured. The Rohingya Community in Carlow came in 2009 after they were resettled from refugee camps in Bangladesh by the United Nation Refugee Agency (UNHCR). The refugees were part of the 250,000 Rohingya who fled their native land Burma [Myanmar] during the Burmese Military in 1991/2 in an operation known as Operation Pyi Thaya or Operation Clean Nation. In another systematic State-sanctioned operation in August 2017, 700,000 Rohingya fled Myanmar to refugee camps in Bangladesh causing a disintegration and displacement of a community. The “clearance operations” constituted a human rights catastrophe. This exhibition has been created in collaboration with Haikal Mansor, Mohammed Rafique, members of The Rohingya community in Carlow and Carlow based Rohingya Action Ireland which is made up of both local and national support networks.

  • Details: The construction of the Carlow By-pass saw many archaeological treasures been excavated during the M9 Carlow By-pass construction. You will be struck by the similarities between ourselves and the people of the past. Our ancestors were able to feed, clothe and provide shelter for their families, but it was their skill and expertise that helped create the most beautiful handmade tools and crafts. So why not step back in time and experience how our ancestors lived. The exhibition is in association with the National Museum of Ireland and the National Roads Authority.
