The Black Mariah is pleased to present Pallasades, Score for 51°57'N 08°40'W, at Triskel Arts Centre, Cork.
Pallasades have created a live, interactive sound installation in the Triskel Gallery, a former ESB substation. Developing a practice based upon collaboration, process and site-specificity, Pallasades engage with the historical associations of the building, activating the space using sound and electrical impulses. Several DIY theremins create a grid-like structure where the audience’s movements in the space activate an improvised score.
The overlapping of themes surrounding the work are explored through individual texts in a parallel publication. Included with this, is a recording of their interaction with the electrical instruments as they are switched on for the first time.
Pallasades is Imelda Barnard, Fiona Chambers, Rachael Gilbourne, Michelle Hall, Tracy Hanna and Sharon Murphy, with guest collaborator Rob Costello. The group emerged out of an internship with Pallas Contemporary Projects, Dublin, where they had their first exhibition in August 2008.
