Wine and Die + Winesploitation At MART This Month


Posted 6 days ago in Arts & Culture Features

Cirillo’s

The hospitable folk at MART invite members of the city’s wine curious populace to enjoy a screening of the fascinating docufiction film Winesploitation with an exhibition of visual arts over the weekend of July 19th to 21st.

Designed and curated by Temmuz Süreyya Gürbüz, WINE & DIE explores the sense of agency through staged self-destruction, repetition and imagery of isolation. It reflects on the conditions within which artistic expression is cultivated in relation to others – particularly the condition of shared intoxication.

The event launches with a lively opening event from 6-9pm on Friday 19th July, which promises to be a lively affair, with live drawing by Senan O’Connor, fuzzy noise music by Temmuz Süreyya Gürbüz and the film’s composer Joe Anderson.

The exhibition came out of the low budget collectivity behind the film, with the aim of exposing the relational process of thinking/making/influence around its emergence. It involves photography, painting, sketch art, mixed-media installation and noise music. All of the artists involved in WINE & DIE participated in the production or post-production of the film Winesploitation, which can be seen in the back gallery throughout the show.

The exhibition offers a space in which to connect, expose and isolate, while reflecting on how exposed isolation (as exhibition translates “exposition” in French) can refer to a shared experience.

Perhaps wine has something to do with it.

Designed and curated by Temmuz Süreyya Gürbüz, the exhibition runs at MART over the weekend of July 20th – 21st. Winesploitation screens in Gallery 2 with visual arts by Temmuz Süreyya Gürbüz, Alina Hernández, Jane McBride, Senan O’Connor and James Sheridan on display in Gallery 1.
