Saturday 19 August, 3pm
Join us on the day of the exhibition opening for an insightful talk between the artist Matthew Nevin and Dr. Katherine Nolan. This is a recreation of a conversation they have had about Nevin’s body of work in the past that will also be available to view during the course of the exhibition.
The Core Project is a multifaceted visual art project, presented through video, online and as a large scale installation featuring over 150 videos, by Matthew Nevin. In each video, a single respondent answers a question that they have not previously seen. By withholding the question, Nevin removes the expectancy that we as participants in an expanding online/new media culture have become accustomed to. It removes the power of the question from the participant’s planned vocal and physical response. It sets an emphasis on the context of the answers and the behavioural nuances of the participants.
