Whether it is the darkness of a February afternoon, the reflected light of a fresh snowfall, or the distinctive hue of Halogen Street lights, her paintings are charged with content that is either to come, or else is taking place just out of view. Her work in recent years focuses on the contemporary city, looking at places such as Paris, Rotterdam, Madrid, Vienna, and most recently Dublin.</p> <p>In her new series of paintings depicting interiors, Jordan invites us to look closely at the multi layered histories woven through the spaces of institutions and public buildings in our cities. Many of these are museums, or historic buildings that often contain art as a backdrop to civic, educational or cultural activities</p> <p>In Jordan's exhibition at The Hugh Lane, <em>Tableau</em>, her works inhabiting the rooms of Charlemont House, once domestic, now public, become a Gesamtkunstwerk – a total work of art. These paintings, like a strange mirror, are observing us, and reflecting a repetition of lives lived. Jordan is working in the realm of the extraordinary, the humdrum extraordinary, bringing to the fore the details and perspectives of our reality, She creates an idea, not of contrast, but rather of dialogue, an indication of the continuity between the past and the present, between old and modern.</p> <p><strong>The exhibition will be lit by daylight as weather conditions permit.</strong></p> <p>Eithne Jordan was born in Dublin where she studied at Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design & Technology from 1972-76.

This is a very significant commission in the collaborative arts sphere in Ireland. It has resulted from a successful collaboration between Create, the national development agency for collaborative arts and Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane, located in Parnell Square and is supported by the Collaborative Arts Partnership Programme (CAPP) a transnational programme co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union. The applications, from across the CAPP network of partners, were of particularly high calibre with forty-one artists submitting diverse proposals in cross disciplinary artforms. This exciting commission will run from 2017 to 2018 and sets out to encourage meaningful and in depth engagement with communities of place and of interest as well as the distinct architectural, socio-political and cultural landscape of the North Inner City of Dublin.  Seamus Nolan’s proposal to investigate the idea of archive, deconstruct ideas on ‘heritage’ and engage with both communities of place and of interest, involving Traveller activists and archivists, stood out in terms of concept and imaginative power. </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12.16px;">Barbara Dawson, Director Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane “We are delighted to work with Create and Seamus Nolan on this great commission. One of Ireland’s foremost artists working in collaborative arts practice, Nolan has presented a powerful and thoughtful proposal focused on the Traveller community. Working with the community, Paveé Point, archives and archivists, the artist will go beyond any single reading of identity and heritage in a contemporary re thinking of established histories, memories and communities” </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12.16px;">Ailbhe Murphy, Director of Create “We are delighted that Seamus Nolan, one of Ireland’s leading collaborative arts practitioners, has proposed this very timely and relevant socially engaged project. With a focus on archive, identity and history in relation to the Irish Traveller community, Nolan will work with a number of collaborators to re shape and re work ideas about what ‘heritage’ and memory can be. We are really looking forward to working in partnership with the Hugh Lane on this exciting commission.” </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12.16px;">Seamus Nolan, artist “I am really pleased to have the opportunity through this commission to examine basic notions of representation and community building in relation to Traveller past and heritage. The commission will support the coming together of cultural practitioners, activists and archivists in an exploration of contested histories.” </span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12.16px;">Martin Collins, Pavee Point added: “With the recognition of Traveller ethnicity it is important to explore how Traveller culture and identity can be integrated in an inclusive way into all aspects of Irish life. Pavee Point welcomes this opportunity to continue to develop innovative and imaginative approaches and looks forward to working with artist Seamus Nolan.”</span></p> <p><span style="font-size: 12.16px;"><strong>SEAMUS NOLAN Biography</strong> Seamus Nolan is an artist based in Dublin, recent work includes presenting 10th President as part of Re-Public in the Hyde Park Art Centre Chicago (Create /Culture Ireland showcase for 2016), Historica – Republican Aesthetics the Irish Museum of Modern Art, 'Radical Actions', RMIT Melbourne, ( 2016) 'Proto punks' with Upstate Theatre projects Drogheda, (2015) 'Kathleen Lynn, Insider on the outside' Mayo Arts Collaborative, (2016) 'what if we got it wrong' the Centre Culturel Irlandais Paris, touring exhibition (2015) and 'F**K IMMA' for 'What we call love', Irish Museum of Modern Art (2015) .
