The Uncanny; 3 definitions

1: The Uncanny can be described as an instance where something can be familiar, yet foreign at the same time, resulting in a feeling of it being uncomfortably strange or uncomfortably familiar. 

2: The Uncanny is generated by being reminded of the repetition compulsion, not by being reminded of whatever it is that is repeated, an echo. 

3: The Uncanny is the word always falling away from itself in to its opposite, yet affirming itself in doing so. The Uncanny comes into being as a law of non-contradiction.

Artists working with video, sound, installations or text are invited to submit works regarding the concept of The Uncanny. The exhibition will take place in Cork city at TACTIC . For more information see
