Jaki Irvine, Deutsche Bank Commission

Deutsche Bank, Dublin

Permanent commission launching 6 November 2014

Each year, vast colonies of monarch butterflies journey 4,000 km from Canada to winter in the mountains near Angangueo, in the Mexican state of Michoacán. Passing through the USA, they are decimated by toxic crop sprays and other dangers. Exhausted, numb, clinging to tree trunks in the cold forest, they gradually spread their wings and fly as the first rays of sunshine filter through the trees and begin to thaw them out. The forest comes alive with their colours.

Curator, art critic and lecturer at the Sorbonne, Sinziana Ravini is known for her “exhibition-novels.” The Black Moon is «a film-exhibition» that presents an encounter between a man and a woman visiting an exhibition. Meanings suggested by the juxtaposition of works by diverse artists are meant to suggest a narrative. Thus the story of this relationship unfolds around the works, playing with love, art and life. While one searches only for a fleeting tryst, the other aspires to finding true love. Fleeting tryst or true love: which will triumph?

William McKeown, Inverleith House, Edinburgh

Inverleith House, Royal Botanic Gardens Edinburgh

12 May 2012 - 08 July 2012

We all look at it as we wake up, and again as we leave our homes in the morning, throughout the day and before we go to sleep; our eyes have evolved to sense it acutely and green plants harness its energy, mostly in the blue and red regions of the spectrum, which is why they appear green: it is the light that makes life on earth possible. Yet as a subject for art it is relatively ignored. The Californian sculptor James Turrell uses it as a primary art material, building 'Sky spaces' - enclosures open to the sky to present light as solid colour. The German Romantic Landscape painter Caspar David Friedrich (1774 - 1840) notably captured the sublime qualities of the sun at dawn and dusk and of the moon at night.
