‘Green Screen’, an exhibition of contemporary video art from Ireland curated by Australian video-artist Kate Murphy, recently an artist-in-residence in Dublin. The themes these video works covered ranged from updated reinterpretations of traditional fairytales and abstract meditations on Irish and Celtic landscape to alleged UFO visitation; from considerations of the decimation of Irish state housing to the mock heroism of the figure of the contemporary artist in his studio; from the disappearance of fabled fauna to fictions of completeness expressed in everyday life as compensation for the subjective experience of failure and dissatisfaction. The exhibited works were shown both projected and on monitors.
