…and if I listen in I hear my own heart beating…

September 17 - October 29, 2010


Spread over the two floors of Cake Contemporary, …and if I listen in I hear my own heart beating… is an exhibition of work that draws upon the sounds and fervour of humanity as a base for considering the value systems of populations. In the exhibition, the viewer encounters an analysis of everyday life through points of familiarity. The geographical, utopian, mundane, physical, or bureaucratic come together to form zones of judgement that potentially negate freedom from preconceptions. This is the emotional geography of the city. Within this, the traveller and occupants position themselves psychologically as they propagate their own personal experience of residency and setting and develop their own references of comparative constants.

Artists: Alan Phelan, Alina Abramov, Fiona Mulholland, Libia Castro & Ólafur Ólafsson, Marie Voignier, Mark Clare, S Mark Gubb, Miha Štrukelj, and Niamh McCann.

Curator: Noel Kelly
