The MART Gallery, Rathmines
27 October – 12 November, 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.
