Project Arts Centre
Opens Thursday 25 April 2013
Garden is a newly commissioned exhibition by Dublin-based artist Niamh O’Malley for Project Arts Centre, Dublin.
Known most recently for her moving image explorations of monumental sites in works such as ‘Quarry’ and ‘Bridge’, here O’Malley takes us into a more intimate landscape using video, sculpture and painting. Through a new video installation and a large painting on glass, the images produced by and in a private garden are examined through screens, mirrors and windows.
A dual channel video shows a mirror panning and tilting, reversing the normal flow of light and camera movement, slowly and silently illuminating and reflecting the garden in an elusive dance. Accompanying the video, and set into a wooden seating platform, the large glass pane is painted on both sides. The painting becomes a limitless translucent form, complicating ideas of reverse, background, and negative space.
A limited edition print by Niamh O’Malley from the exhibition will also be available to purchase from Project Arts Centre during the exhibition.
Garden will open at Project Arts Centre on Thursday 25 April and runs until Saturday 22 June 2013.
