Catalyst Arts Belfast – The Joinery Dublin

Exchange Programme.
3rd May – 17 May

New work by Richard Forrest and Emanuel Rohss.

After the success of the first collaboration Switched in September 2010, The Joinery Dublin
will once again collaborate with Catalyst Arts Belfast to present a selection of work by two
recent graduates selected by the Joinery, from the Crawford College of Art and Design in Cork
and NCAD in Dublin. This work will be re-exhibited in Catalyst Arts, providing the artists with
an opportunity to show in another gallery context and to a new audience. In March the recent
graduate works selected by Catalyst were exhibited at The Joinery in Dublin. This exchange
provides an opportunity for recent graduate artists to showcase their work to new and broader

Richard Forrest was chosen by the Joinery as part of the 2011 graduate programme.
In his current practice Forrest explores a relationship with technology by making, hacking,
glitching and subverting assumed uses of digital media.
Richard Forrest graduated from the Crawford College of Art and Design in 2011 with first class
honours in his studio practice. Forrest is a founding member of Sample Studios. He also works
as a gallery facilitator in the Lewis Glucksman Gallery. In 2011, he was awarded the Tyndell
Purchase prize, the CIT Registrars Prize: Research Bursary, the Ciaran Langford Memorial
Bursary Award (6 month residency at Backwater studios), the Cork Printmakers Studio Bursary
Award and the Joinery Graduate Selection Prize for his work at last year’s Crawford degree show

Emanuel Rohss was chosen by the Joinery as part of the 2011 graduate programme.
His work takes the dialectics of materiality and form as its point of departure. In his recent work
Rohss investigates the physical characteristics of painting and sculpture – the limitations and
potential of the mediums – as well as the relationship between objects.

Emanuel Rohss was born in Göteborg, Sweden. He studied at Valand School of fine Art and
graduated from the National College of Art & Design with a 1st class Hons degree in Painting in
2011. He has shown work in galleries, museums and art centres in Sweden, Germany, the UK,
Ireland, China, the Czech republic and the United States. He has worked in collaboration with the
Dublin based art group MART, and the Swedish fanzine collaborative Jarko.
Rohss is currently living in London undertaking an MA in the Royal College of Art.

The Joinery is a not for profit contemporary art and project space set up in Dublin in 2008 which
has become known for its challenging and energetic programme of visual art and experimental
live music.
