Another Monumental Metaphor
edited by Alan Phelan
Printed Project is a biannual journal published by the Sculptors’ Society of Ireland. A special edition of Printed Project has been commissioned as part of Ireland’s representation at the Venice Biennale. Printed Project is edited/curated on a rotating basis and this special edition Another Monumental Metaphor is edited/curated by Dublin based artist Alan Phelan.
Stemming from the Biennale context, the themes from various world biennials serve as titles for contributions examining a range of recent and upcoming activities, histories, artworks and practices including rural art, relational conflict, false modernism, unsolicited art for public spaces, and nationalist tendencies in architecture and curating. Artist’s contributions occur between the essays with artworks exploring parallel universes, hidden and lost cinema, Republican directives, and behavioural rules for virtual worlds
This edition of Printed Project offers insights into complex levels of engagement, obsession and history in Ireland, augmenting the selected artists representing Ireland at the Venice Biennale.
