On Saturday 20th November, aemi is delighted to present ‘Profit & Loss’ 4Ever Chemical (2014-2021) by Sibyl Montague, a new one-day in-person video collage installation at Project Arts Centre, Dublin


Following on from Sibyl Montague’s ‘Profit and Loss’ series of videos presented on aemi online last year, 4Ever Chemical (2014-2021) uses image and melody to weave mass material sourced from online drifts. Made as a multi-part work, it has three core rhythms that can ‘shuffle’ randomly like tracks. The works are cut-ups; a method to reap and remediate content, harvesting from early learning, pharmaceutical, corporate and cosmetic visual and audio.

4Ever Chemical, featuring Breath (12 min), Bird (2 min) and Moth (06.30 min) will screen alongside other works including a new textile Blanket – Those Who Wander. 

This installation is free to attend. 25 minute booking slots from Project Arts Centre are available between 10am - 6pm, Saturday 20 November

Montague’s varied practice explores trans-disciplinary and hybrid forms of care through the handheld. Her work uses a wide range of vegetable, digital, textile and ‘poor’ material sources, disassembled commodity goods which are subjected to an intimate process of hacking, binding and remediating.

Montague was artist in residence at VISUAL, Carlow in 2020 and recipient of the IMMA 1000 residency at the Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin in 2019. Recent exhibitions include ‘SELF SOOTHERS’, VISUAL, Carlow (2020); ‘Profit & Loss (1-4)’, AEMI online (2020); ‘The Law is a White Dog’, curated by Sarah Browne, TULCA Festival of Visual Art (2020);  ‘Saplings’, Pallas Projects, Dublin, and ‘My Fears of Tomorrow are Melting Away’, Cité Internationale des Arts, Paris (both 2018). Montague was co- founder and co-curator of PLASTIK international festival of artists’ moving image in Dublin (2015-2017). Her practice includes sculpture, video, drawing and installation.
