Droichead Arts Centre

As part of the opening of Thomas Brezing's exhibition/installation 'The Road is Paved with Good Intentions' at the Droichead Arts Centre on Wednesday 14 January 2015, I will be doing a collaborative performance with the artist in his 'Carpet Man' persona:

"Carpet Man is an ongoing performance-based project running since 2011, revolving around a persona adopted by Thomas Brezing. Carpet Man has appeared in derelict houses, a snow-covered mountain, an abandoned pool, a beach, an old shop unit, a vandalised warehouse, a forest and several other locations. A short film documenting his journeys was produced in 2013. Christodoulos Makris is a poet, editor and curator particularly interested in experimental/innovative/conceptual writing, often the result of collaborations. His essay on Brezing's Carpet Man project appeared in the July/August 2013 issue of Visual Artists Ireland newsletter. For this performance, he will engage with Carpet Man by responding to the variously discarded material he encounters or manipulates in his journeys - as also used by Brezing for his gallery installation - with treatments of contemporary cultural detritus."

The exhibition runs from Thursday 15th January to Saturday 28th February (gallery open Tuesday-Saturday, 10am – 5pm)

Free Admission
