Lavit Gallery





Curated by Janice Hough.

Janice Hough is the curator of IMMA’s Residency & Artist Programmes.

C  L  O  S  E  R   brings together selected artworks by Backwater studio members which resonate with physical, spiritual, communal and environmental states. Playing with scale and materials several selected works encourage the viewer to get closer, revealing their process as an enigma, a discovery, a history or an act of intimacy. Other works conjure forces through their sense of theatre or presence in the space. In the gallery, fabrics soften and domesticate the setting, with reflections sited in the exhibition to bring artworks and people closer together. In these times our collective experience on this earth has never been so intertwined.

C  L  O  S  E  R   is open to multiple contrasting readings which visitors are invited to explore and experience.

The exhibition features artworks by Rachel Daly, Angela Gilmour, Sean Hanrahan, Joseph Heffernan, Claire Murphy, Ailbhe Ní Bhriain, Natasha Pike, Ciara Rodgers, Pádraig Spillane and Izabela Szczutkowska.

Opening Night: Thursday, 5th of May. 5:30 to 7:30 pm
