Tino Sehgal: This Situation
12 April–19 May 2013
Turner prize nominee Tino Sehgal presents his pioneering work This Situation, in which he responds to and engages with gallery visitors through the use of conversation, sound and movement. Originally conceived in 2007, This Situation has toured globally with the support of the Goethe-Institut.

Sehgal studied both political economics and choreography, working in dance before focusing on his ‘constructed situations.’ In this most recent version of This Situation at IMMA, the gallery is occupied by a group of six ‘participants’ or ‘interpreters’ whose choreographed actions generate a discussion of cultural, economic and philosophical issues. Revealed only as experiences in the time and space they occupy, his works exist for those who encounter them and in their memories, but not as physical objects.

Tino Sehgal was born in London in 1976 and currently lives and works in Berlin. Solo exhibitions of his work have been held around the world, most recently in Tate Modern’s Turbine Hall and dOCUMENTA 13 Art Festival, Kassel, Germany in 2012. Sehgal has just been nominated for the Turner Prize 2013.

This Situation is curated by Rachael Thomas, Senior Curator: Head of Exhibitions, IMMA, and co-curated by Georgie Thompson, Assistant Curator: Exhibitions, IMMA, and produced by Louise Höjer.

Supported by the Goethe-Institut Irland.
Presented with the support of the National Concert Hall.

Willie Doherty: Secretion, 2012
21 May–1 September 2013
IMMA presents the Irish premiere of the internationally renowned artist Willie Doherty’s film work Secretion, 2012, in the Annex at IMMA’s temporary spaces in Earlsfort Terrace. In Secretion Doherty’s slow camerawork zooms in on fragments of a secluded landscape as well as on an abandoned building at the edge of civilization. The beautiful and sharp shots of fungus attacks, rot and decay, create contradictory visuals in this, at once, compelling and terrifying work. As in a psychological science fiction story, the voice-over describes the peculiar and concealed occurrences in the area without explanation. Shot on location in and around Kassel, Germany, and first shown as part of dOCUMENTA 13, Secretion draws upon the possibilities of lost and forgotten narratives located somewhere between recent history and a near future.

Nominated twice for the Turner Prize (2003, 1994), Doherty’s work has been the subject of many solo museum shows, and in 2002 IMMA presented False Memory, the first major solo exhibition of Doherty’s work in Ireland. Other solo exhibitions include Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane (2011); The Speed Art Museum, Kentucky (2011); Institute of Contemporary Art, Toronto (2009); Fruitmarket Gallery, Edinburgh (2009); Lenbachhaus, München (2007); Kunstverein, Hamburg (2007); Laboratorio Arte Alameda, Mexico City (2006); Renaissance Society, Chicago (1999) and Tate Gallery, Liverpool (1999). Doherty’s forthcoming exhibition, UNSEEN, will present a survey of photographic and video works as part of Derry – Londonderry City of Culture 2013.

The exhibition is curated by Rachael Thomas, Senior Curator, Head of Exhibitions, IMMA, assisted by Séamus McCormack, Temporary Projects, Exhibitions, IMMA.

An extensive talks and lecture programme accompanies both exhibitions, please visit our website for more details here.
