Opening Reception Saturday 19 November 2-4pm
This group exhibition present five artists from the island of Ireland, selected from open call as part of our Materials Messages and Meaning series. Now in its fifth year, these exhibitions explore artists’ different approaches to materials, methods of production and messages within their work.
The artists address issues of relationship to place, culture, self and others. Through challenges to the physical qualities and values associated with their chosen materials, each explores and expresses an area of personal interest. Using textiles, chipboard, steel, bone, and ceramics they collectively push expected boundaries and perceptions. Our relationship with the materials themselves is brought into question as plasma cutting meets embroidery; turf meets papermaking; animation meets body parts.
