Carnivore (In collaboration with Choreographer Luke Murphy & Attic Projects).

Item Details
I created a series of origami inspired sculptural elements in collaboration with award winning Choreographer and dance performance artist Luke Murphy for his new performance Carnivore.

It was worth every fold collaborating with Luke and working with the talented Carnivore team Carlye Eckert, Eric Jackson Bradley and Julie Koenig, who completely re interpreted these forms by their movements. The large paper tunnel transforms from a dome and is revisited often during the performance. Seeing this main architectural element as a sort of spiritual home for the performance, I titled this large piece Duomo from the Italian word meaning church.

This was programmed at the following dates and venues:

Uillinn, West Cork Arts Centre. 24th /25th May, 2019
Visual, Centre for Contemporary Art, Carlow Arts Festival. 7/10 June 2019.
Crawford Gallery, Cork Midsummer Festival. 17/18 June 2019
CIACLA, Los Angeles. 15/17 July 2019
Munich 12th December 2019
London 13th December 2019

Alex Pentek

County Cork, Ireland

I enjoy making site specific work to playfully explore the interconnectedness of all things.

Alex Pentek is an Irish artist who has a growing portfolio of national and international work that explores different site specific ideas in a broad range of materials. As well creating large scale site specific work, his gallery based practice explores temporary mediums such as folded paper and sound performance which he has exhibited across Ireland, UK and Australia.

With over 20 large scale permanent works completed in Ireland, UK, Australia and Canada, long time interests in science, origami and music inform Pentek’s work on both practical and philosophical levels.
