Gary Farrely and Chris Dreier have officially launched a new research and co-production initiative to be known as Office of Joint Administrative Intelligence (OJAI). The objectives of the combined effort are original research focused on economic modeling, post-war architecture and personal inventory systems. The new entity will manifest in co-authored bureaucracy, performance, mail-art and photography.  The first OJAI summit was held in Berlin earlier this month and was commemorated with a limited edition of hand-fabricated decorative trays. To celebrate the successful conclusion of the summit the trays were generously dispatched as mail-art to the  Museum of  Contemporary Art in Detroit and the National Center for Contemporary Art in  Ekaterinburg, Russia. The remaining examplaire has been retained in the OJAI archive and will be part of an OJAI exhibition at Grölle Pass Projects in Wuppertal this coming autumn.

POLICY DOCUMENTS, New York

Image courtesy of Kitty Kamp

Policy Documents is Gary Farrelly’s first solo exhibition in New York. Research material comprised of typed lists, diagrams and self-generated flotsam institute an atmosphere of bureaucracy and office. Self-representation through administrative systems is the central proposition. Materials employed include: carbon paper, spray paint, stencils, a typewriter and office stationary. The curator is Suzi Teo.

Museum Quality is a minuscule space, in the setting of a mall, hidden behind a taxicab dispatcher. It is an unlikely venue for showcasing conceptual art and design. In marked contrast to the cookie-cutter white cubes, Museum Quality is an attempt to design a forum that harkens back to ad hoc artist run spaces, with minimal red tape; an experimental lab to redefine the language of institution and space.

A specially recorded noise composition by Dexia Defunct (Chris Dreier and Gary Farrelly) will be broadcast in the small rural city of LaSalle, Illinois. The public broadcast is the headline event of a spoken word/ noise art exhibition happening at White Trash Gallery. The composition is made up of recordings of domestic and office machinery as well as sounds of transport infrastructure, toy weapons and site-specific distortion loops. The piece also features an information-heavy voiceover. Limited edition/ stamped and approved cassettes have been dispatched from Brussels (via Berlin) to LaSalle and will be on display and available for purchase.

Glue is a collaborative film project being undertaken by myself and Oisin Byrne. It is a much longer and more ambitious undertaking then the Radical Science film collaborations which proceed it  The writing and recording of the film is already well underway and is being generated incrementally in various locations (London, Brussels, Rhodes and Pickering Forest). The film explores the radical logic that underpins absurd belief systems and their seductive manifestation in everyday life. The project is ongoing.

MIMEO DISPATCHES, Dallas

Gary Farrelly, Mimeo Dispatches (2014), 10 x 21cm x 30cm on display at the artist's studio before dispatch to Dallas.

My new body of work will be on public display at this years Dallas Art Fair. The body of work is entitled Mimeo Dispatches and will be installed  at the RO2 Art booth  located at coordinates: F14-A. 

The artwork presented at the Dallas Art Fair resonates with my established mail art practice in that each of the ten component pieces is stamped, addressed and primed for individual dispatch to either a new petitionee or an established correspondent. As a single larger artwork incrementally generated by exercises in replication, however, the work seems to resist potential dispersal. The larger artwork exists only for the duration of the fair. The constituent pieces will be dispatched to their final destinations when the exhibition closes. Viewed in series it suggests an investigation not only into surface texture and visual cadence, but also into discipline, control and artistic rigour in its human-as-machine production processes. These issues occupy an increasingly central part of my current artistic practice and are strongly emphasized in my 5th 2 Year Development Plan (2014-2016).

EXTRAORDINARIES, Republika Srpska

-->

A selection of postal works on display at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Republika Srpska (2013).

I have been dispatching a series of advanced Mail Artworks to MSURSThe Museum of Contemporary Art of Republika Srpska since January 2013. The correspondence artworks have been departing my studio at monthly intervals without envelope. I unilaterally instigated the process and the initial dispatches were not solicited by MSURS. As the content accumulated in Republika Srpska the curatorial staff at the museum have become active collaborators in the process: documenting and archiving every piece upon arrival.

In February 2014 a selection the of works were shown as part of a major group exhibition at the museum entitled Iz/usetnosti (which translates as Extraordinaries). Since mid 2014 the collection has been on permanent public display at the museum.

5TH 2 YEAR DEVELOPMENT PLAN, Brussels

Gary Farrelly, 5th 2 Year Development Plan (2014), typed document.
My 5th 2 Year Development Plan (2014-2016) has come in to effect and will govern all aspects of my personal and professional operations during the next 24 months.  I have semi-officially code-named the plan The Great Turn after the Soviet Union’s monumental first Five-Year Plan. The Great Turn promotes productive behaviors that will generate intellectual capacity, new technical skills and a more rigorous cultural research. Any vestiges of jealous perversion currently resident inside me will be utterly dismantled by 2016. Auto erotic behavior is targeted for a reduction of 20% - freeing up vital energy that will be diverted to my off-shore operations.


Mail-art/ Kunst Postal will remain the primary vehicle for my foreign policy and will body forth new international dialogues. Operations in the main territories are to be accelerated  to the following degrees: Belgium +4000%, Texas +600%, United States (excluding Texas) +200% and Ireland +200%. Operations in Germany, Republika Srpska and Norway are not mentioned specifically in the plan but are taken in to account under the heading Bilateral Collaboration (UNKNOWN KNOWN) +700%. Religious fervor has been realigned and will fortify at a rate of 100% over the two year term.

A massive amount of processing power is being allocated to the measurement of the plan itself, an activity that will grow by 400%. Alcohol and red meat consumption will both be held at their current rates under the austerity diet policy which will remain in effect for the duration of the plan. Other notable allocations: Botanic Husbandry +15%, Quality of Footwear +30% and Romantic Openness +200%. The plans is being dispensed and monitored from my new headquarters in Central Brussels.

WHERE I COME FROM, Ireland

Gary Farrelly, Where I come From 1/6 (2013), mixed media on paper, 42cm x 42cm,  private collection, Ireland.


The cover artwork and interior sleeve artwork I produced for Christy Moore's new album Where I Come From (2013) is finally ready for public consumption. The work is composed of a series of lists and a map programmed with the names of people and places that appear in Moore's song writing. The artworks are being used for television and billboard advertising the album as well as functioning as set design for television performances including RTE's Late Late Show. This is the second time I have had the privilege of producing artwork to accompany a recording by Christy Moore, the previous offering being Burning Times (2006).

OUTBOUND DISPATCHES, Pickering Forest

Gary Farrelly, Statistical composition related to Going Postal (2013), private collection, Dallas.

I dispatched 128 units of mail dispatched to the following locations in the first half of 2013. Texas (41 units/ 32%), Ireland (28 units/ 22%), Republika Srpska (10 units/ 9%), Belgium (8 units/ 6%), France (8 units/ 6%), United States *excluding Texas (8 units/ 6%), Germany (7 units/ 5%), England (6 units/ 4%), Canada (3 units/ 2%), Poland (3 units/ 2%), Iran (3 units/ 2%), Italy (1 unit/ 1%), Greece (1 unit/ 1%), Netherlands (1 unit/ 1%) and Norway (1 unit/ 1%). 

The dispatches break down into the following classifications by order of numeric strength: Personal Correspondence (40 units/  31% ), Mail Art/ Postal Art (38 units/  29%), Personal Administration (30 units/ 22% ), Government Bureaucracy (10 units/ 9% ), Miscellaneous (10 units/ 9% ) .

Of the 38 Mail Artworks dispatched in the first half of the year 16 units/ 43% were sent expressly for inclusion in Going Postal, an exhibition of Postal Art production at RE Gallery in Dallas, Texas. 10 units/ 26% were dispatched to The Museum of Contemporary Art of Republika Srpska. These were sent as part of an ongoing collaboration with that institution. 7 units/ 18% were received by Marfa based artist Sam Schonzeit. Schonzeit and I  both worked on each artwork rotating it between our respective studios via airmail. These collaborative works were also exhibited in Going Postal. 5 units/ 13% went to other parties at miscellaneous locations.

POSTAL ARTWORKS, Dallas

Gary Farrelly, 2013110 (2013). mixed media on card, 21cm x 29cm, RE Gallery, Dallas.
I am participating in a mail art** collaboration with Dallas curator Wanda Dye and Texan artists Michael Corris, John Pomara and Sam Schonzeit. The project which is called Going Postal will see each of the artists dispatch artworks without envelope via the standard postal system. Wanda Dye is the receiving hand and is documenting and categorizing each arrival. The collaboration will culminate in an exhibition of the works entitled Going Postal at Dallas's RE Gallery this coming August.


**Mail-Art is a core gesture emphasized in Farrelly's 4th 2 year development plan (2013-2015). Pieces are mailed without envelope in the standard post, thus exposed to bureaucratic alteration and procedural molestation. Whole exhibitions are incrementally transmitted in this manner.
