Model artist in residence Paolo Tamburella opens in Dublin

Paolo Tamburella , who was our artist in residence in June, has opened a site specific work in Dublin Docklands called ‘Capital Forwarding Solutions’. His first solo project in Ireland, the work was developed while Paolo was in residence at The Model. Curated by Aoife Tunney the work is connected to the work Djahazi presented by the artist at the 53rd Venice Biennale 2009, as the national participation of the Union of Comoros.

In Dublin, Paolo W. Tamburella has created a site-specific installation for The Paper Store, a warehouse built in the 1900s in the Docklands to store paper for the Irish Press newspaper. The installation will feauture the video of the docker Ismael Combo performing in Venice: a contemporary Comorian Ulysses sailing in Dublin waters.
