Dennis McNulty: framework/rupture

Pavement, entrance, stairs, corridor, main gallery space - Green On Red's layout implies a narrative. One space leads to another. The journey upwards from street to gallery takes a little time.

In Dennis McNulty's first solo show at Green On Red, entitled framework/rupture, this movement from street to gallery provides the starting point for an exploration of the relationship between constructed space and the experience of time. A number of interventions and works (sound, sculpture, animation and photographic images) overlap, creating a cinematic space haunted by the presence of Sam Stephenson's Central Bank building.

The show will be accompanied by AFTERTHOUGHTS, a day of talks and discussion on March 1st, which will include a screening of The Big Bank, an industrial film commissioned by John Sisk & Son Ltd., that records the building of the Central Bank on Dame Street, Dublin, from 1972 to 1979. Speakers include Francois Chastanet, Owen Drumm, Ros Kavanagh, Riklef Rambow and Ellen Rowley. Admission is free but places must be booked in advance ( or + 353 1 6713414).

There will also be a screening of Seaview - Feature Documentary on Thursday, February 21st at 6.30pm Directed by Nicky Gogan and Paul Rowley
Produced by Maya Derrington, Nicky Gogan and Paul Rowley with music/sound treatments by Dennis McNulty
This long anticipated film about asylum seekers living in a former Butlin’s holiday camp at Mosney, Ireland, brings us intimate stories of trauma, hope, and fear of deportation. A unique view into a closed world - we meet the people who are waiting in the asylum process for years on end.
McNulty's soundtrack for Seaview weaves together sounds recorded onsite and music worldized in the ballroom and swimming pool at Mosney, into a soundscape that reflects the stasis experienced by the centre's residents.
Seaview has been selected for screening at this year’s Berlin Film Festival.
