rEVOLUTION PARTY | gender.RIP x A4 SOUNDS
SAT 5TH MAR 2022 | A4 Sounds Gallery
After two years of hibernation we are starting to re-emerge. But for many of us the anxiety, isolation, and total immersion in our own weirdness has changed us into something… different. In a long-overdue return, gender.RIP is hosting a night of Weirdness; celebrating the making/unmaking of ourselves as a species and how we have mutated and adapted in order to survive and flourish. Leave your vestigial limbs at home and drag your newly formed Self on to land, and join us for an evening of performance, reunion, and metamorphosis at the A4 Sounds gallery.
ADAPTATION / MUTATION / GENDER WEIRDNESS / EVOLUTION / SPECULATIVE FUTURES / BODY HORROR / ISOLATION / DESIRE / SCI-FI / FAMILIAR STRANGENESS / THE MONSTROUS AND UNIQUE / TRANSFIGURATION / ABERRATIONS / ANOMALIES / TRANS HUMANISM / DEVIATION / REDISCOVERY / TRANS JOY
Day Magee is a genderqueer visual and performance artist based in Dublin. Their work concerns the bereaved futurities of the lived intersections of queerness, illness, and faith. Their first solo show ‘Contraindications of the Cross’ opens in Pallas Projects/Studios on March 24th till April 9th
HOG AND DICE
Hog and Dice is the storytelling project of Stiofáin Jack. Stiofáin (Fáin to their friends) is a storyteller and folklorist who studied Irish Folklore at UCD. They specialise in dusting off the forgotten parts of our folklore and exposing them to the cold harsh light of day. Taking special delight in stories of the blasphemous, the degenerate and the obscene.
Stiofáin can be found plying their trade deep in the Story Mines of the National Leprechaun Museum in Dublin and on the Hog and Dice YouTube channel.
Fiadh Hoskin is a poet and artist. She works in short form, revelatory poetry, amongst other disparate forms. Her work has appeared in The Irish Times, Poetry Ireland, Flare, Impossible Archive and a number of other publications and zines. The work from her gallery show at A4 Sounds last year can be found at her website.
