Cut Throat – Rachel Tynan

Image from Cut Throat ExhibitionCut Throat crosses the divide between art and medical science, challenging the conventions of both worlds and prompting conversation about how people live with Myalgic Encephalomyalgia (ME) / Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). Cut Throat is an attempt to make visual the impact of living with long-term illness, using the analogy of the freedom of the bird as an axis for the investigation of the physical limitations and vulnerability of the human condition.

Supported by Dublin City of Science 2012, this exhibition at The LAB pushes Tynan’s work beyond the fixed manifestations of installation with an explorative performance from contemporary dancer, Rachel Ensor, whose opening night performance will be filmed and screened throughout the show. The exhibition will also encourage discourse between the artistic, scientific, and medical community through a series of talks focusing on arts and health practices. Exhibition closes Saturday 10th November 2012.
