Nanigian’s ‘I will be a Phenomenon’ sets the tone of this new project for Dublin, presenting work in alternative ways, and initially eschewing the need for traditional art spaces. Nanigian’s poster. looks at the role of the artist in a humorous yet disarmingly honest way, composing a private manifesto of often competing and contradictory fears, hopes and aspirations.
