“The Darker Room” – Gallery X (Ireland)

darkerroom‘The Darker Room’ is a group photographic exhibition by Irish and international photographers, both up and coming and well known. A collection of discomforting images, a mix of film and digital, these works of portraiture are united by a dark and mysterious mood as the artists engage shadow and darkness in tone, expression, style and mood.

We worked hard to bring you a mixture of styles so that there will be an image to speak to everyone, some beautiful yet decaying, some dark yet lovable, some soft yet strong, some that are still but that move. Darkness holds a special place in our hearts and in these artists’ lives and work. Without the dark, there would be no light and these photographers surely shine a light into a dark world, the darker room.

“BOUND AND EMBRACED” – Gallery X (Dublin Ireland)













The art and practice of ropes

Curated by Marco Carboni
7 – 14 January 2017
Preview on 06/01 @ 6PM
Shibari bondage workshop and performance on 07/01

Gallery X, 65 South William Street D2 (first floor)

Bondage plays with the tension between submission and free will; between pleasure and pain; between desire and power. Often confused with forms of abuse, it is in fact a complex game of permissions and boundaries, of demands and compliance, that goes both ways. The “master” is not always the master, and the “bottom” is not always at the bottom of the relationship. If I tell you to tie me up, who is in charge? Acts which place consenting participants in such a hierarchical relationship can still be taboo in our equality-obsessed world, indeed they can be an intriguing metaphor for our society, in which so many happily accept and seek to be guided and dominated by the rich and powerful.
