BAVA exhibition opening

Thankyou to everyone who came along to the opening of our degree show yesterday in the West Cork Arts Centre, Skibbereen. Patricia Hurl opened the show and took the time to talk about each of the seven artists and their work, which made each of us feel special. We had a great day, and evening back on Sherkin. The show remains open until 13th March.

Exhibition WCAC

To the left is a gallery view of my installation as part of the BAVA Sherkin degree show. The photograph shows gallery 2 with one half of my installation visible, a projection onto paper, with a drawing on paper facing it, not visible here, on the opposite wall. The title of the piece is Cast of one. The title references both performance and sculpture, and the piece explores the isolation of emptiness, space and silence, when all we have left to look at is ourself.
The painting, also visible in the photograph is by my fellow graduate Veronika O'Driscoll. the two pieces complement each other well as her work also explores space, albeit in a very different context and medium.
