    Niamh Roberts | Fool's Spring

    Niamh Roberts
    Fool's Spring, 2022
    Audio reading, 4 mins 45 sec

    Part of the Northern Ireland Mental Health Arts Festival 2022.

    Niamh Roberts is an artist and poet originally from our city and a recent graduate of the Slade School of Art in London. This new installation is centred around a new piece of writing entitled Fool’s Spring and consists of a bicycle rack, yellow light and poem installed in CCA's Project Space and the poem is available to download in this podcast.

    The title of the long form poem comes from the nick name of a fake season, naming the week of warmth that comes after winter and before ‘second winter’. It is, for the artist, a false start, a brief and urgent movement between periods of stagnancy. Niamh is interested in repeating fleeting human interventions in their environment, whether seeing a person absent-mindedly moving something from one place to another, noticing a sticker stuck on the side of a wall, or screen-shotting the bike ebay ad when noticing a butterfly on the frame.

    Niamh writes referencing the tone of the New Narrative movement way of writing poetry, creating auto-fiction texts that sound like they could be talking about their life, but the content comes from a wide range of sources. Adopting the idea that all sources are as valid as the other, Niamh practices a way of making in which no hierarchy exists.

    Fool’s Spring is on view in the CCA Project Space for the duration of the Northern Ireland Mental Health Festival from Monday 9–Sunday 15 May 2022.

    Chinasa Vivian Ezugha
    Tongues, 2021
    in collaboration with Uchechuwku and Chidinma Ezugha
    Audio performance, 10 minutes
    Edited by Martyna Poznanska

    This first practice-as-research project by CCA Research Associate  Chinasa Vivian Ezugha seeks to examine the question: ‘What kind of  documentation can be derived from glossolalic speech and its  presentation?’ It does so through the development and creation of an  audio performance, realised in collaboration with the artists' sisters  recorded in everyday mundane spaces such as the kitchen or bedroom. This  project examines the practice of glossolalia within family  relationships and the everyday, and the way in which spoken glossolalia  can  be used to further discussions around our relationship to the voice as a  form of connection to our bodies and others.

    This is the first iteration of this research project, exploring  glossolalia and the differences in speech and sound between the  diasporic Nigerians in the UK and the Pentecostal Nigerians across Nigeria.
