Ali Kirby | Cliodhna Timoney


Exhibition Opening: 27 October, 6-8pm.

Exhibition runs: Friday 28 October – Saturday 12 November, 2016.

Gallery opening hours: 1pm – 6pm, Tuesday-Saturday.
MART Gallery, 190a Rathmines Road Lower, Rathmines, Dublin 6.


Ali Kirby and Cliodhna Timoney will both present new work in this upcoming two person exhibition selected through the Fire Station Artist’s Studios Residency Award 2016.

Kirby’s sculptural interventions will respond directly to the architecture transforming the physical space of the front gallery with large scale works that draw our attention to colour, scale and presence, while Timoney will exhibit a family of objects manifested through a process of trial and error. These objects relate to the encounter between the manufactured and the handmade and the interaction between body and material. This family will materialize as an installation in MART’s back gallery. This exhibition will be accompanied by a text by Lucy Elvis.
