Another successful peer review for the members of PRIME, those who attended as part of the peer group and invited artists. From 6–7pm on April 4 PRIME hosted another peer review at PS2 as part of the Storeroom/Showroom residency, inviting artists Alessandra Giacinti and Ciaran Hussey to give a 15 minute presentation of their work to a small group of artists and curators.
Alessandra Giacinti graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts, Rome, in 2006, and recently studied Painting, under Prof. Peter Doig, at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. She works with painting, drawing and printmaking; developing a personal iconography informed by the imagery of quotidian dreaming. She is currently based in Belfast.
Ciaran Hussey is an Irish artist based in Belfast. He received an honours degree from the Limerick School of Art & Design and a Masters in Fine Art from the University of Ulster, Belfast. Additionally he is affiliated with Array Studios, a collective of artists based in Belfast. Hussey’s work revolves around the psychological effects that contemporary capitalist society has placed upon its practitioners. Using video & sound installations he invites the audience to experience themes such as aspiration, expectancy, escapism and frustration.
