Beyond Silence: A Bell Rings in an Empty Sky
26 Mayâ12Â August
Publication Launch : 12â3pm Sat 8 July 2017
Multiple ceramic bells and mesmeric static musical figurines installed in the Crawford Art Gallery prompt the viewer to pause a while. The work allows a moment, for the imagination to grow with the sounds prompted by the visual spectacle.
McCarthyâs practice has long concerned itself with promoting the simple of idea of listening. In a departure from creating sound,Â for this exhibition,Â McCarthy foregrounds our daily, ever present background soundscape.
The Artist bringsÂ together over 500 found ceramic objects, which have been eitherÂ muted by the artist or by their material restrictions.Â McCarthy is a gatherer and scours car boot sales and second hand shops to find discarded objects that have been overlooked and under used.
Beyond SilenceÂ playfully triggers memories to create potential imaginary mindscapes. The installations are accompanied by drawings created by the artist duringÂ a recent residency at the prestigious Rauschenberg Foundation in Florida. McCarthy immersed himself in the legacy of Robert Rauschenbergâs practise, which led to his use of erasure as a tool of engagement in the drawings and further engaged with his interest in listening.
Danny McCarthyÂ is one of Irelandâs pioneers of performance art and sound art and he continues to be a leading exponent exhibiting and performing both in Ireland and abroad. McCarthy is also gatherer and scours car boot sales and second hand shops to find discarded objects that have been overlooked and under used.
McCarthyâs is also interested in acoustic ecology and collates âlost soundsâ – evident in his Found Sound (Lost at Sea) at Crawford Art Gallery (2011-2016) and his workÂ Mutus LiberÂ focuses his concern for lost sonic soundscapes.
McCarthy asked Hubert Bookbinding to create a handcrafted book containing found perforated music paper.Â The music paper, that would have been ubiquitous a century ago, was at the forefront of popular culture when many fairground and cinematic attractions would feature pianolas (a self-playing piano). McCarthy captures the now muted sounds in archival form perhaps in the hope that the next generation may find a willingness to listen and explore sounds from history.
Responding to the exhibitionÂ Beyond Silence: A Bell Rings in an Empty Sky a publication featuring text and visualsÂ David Toop, Stephen Vitiello, Helen Fossi (Soundfjord), Paul Hegarty, Sarah Hayden, Cristin Leach, Bernard Clarke and John Godfrey will be launched betweenÂ 12-3pm, Saturday 8 July, 2017.

“the sounds I tend to use have a universality and the work should work in any culture. Space influences my work hugely and I really enjoy working with space as a medium. I tend to let the space form the work rather that trying to impose the work in the space. When I am traveling, I tend to travel very light and let the work happen from what I find or can purchase cheaply on site.”
“But I am passionately in love with art; my life is art every waking moment. As regards sound art, the most important aspect of that is without doubt my ‘listening practice’ and the ability to listen. I have given numerous listening workshops to people from literally eight to eighty and I am always fascinated by people’s reactions when they start to listen deeply.” Circa Art Magazine.
