27 October to 9 December 2017
Mechanism is a solo exhibition by Andrew Kearney. Devised as an ambitious group of installations that redefine our experience of The Dock galleries.
Andrew Kearney creates installations using sculpture, light, photography, sound, and technology usually in response to specific sites, spaces or events. Mechanism is a body of work that continues Kearneys exploration of the layered history of buildings.The installations become detailed investigations of the spaces for which they are made.
For Mechanism this is achieved by a group of interrelated large-scale installations that use industrial materials to integrate the architecture of the early nineteenth-century courthouse with that of the contemporary art centre; meanwhile a range of electronic devices links the life of the town with that of the interior space of the gallery.
