Mark Templeton (Canada) Artist Talk, June 5th, Droichead Arts Centre

Droichead Arts Centre are delighted to welcome Canadian sound artist and photographer Mark Templeton back to the Centre as part of our accompanying programme for Borrowed Ground. Templeton’s work is abstract in approach, often focusing on memory – examining themes of nostalgia, place and the exotic. He has performed live and exhibited his work at festivals, art galleries and alternative spaces in Europe, the United Kingdom and North America.

Recent works include a collaboration with filmmaker Kyle Armstrong to create an audiovisual tribute to Canadian media visionary Marshall McLuhan, a trilogy of heart-based thematic music albums and, in 2018, publication of his first photobook which included a series of five one-sided flexi disc records.

In this talk, Mark will look at how photography and sound can create a new and specific reality. He will speak about the built-in escape valves that these two media possess, and how he incorporates this into his work.

This event is produced in association with thirty-three 45. This is a free event, but as space is limited, booking is essential
