Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane





Dublin City Gallery The Hugh Lane is pleased to present Furtive Tears – an exhibition by Irish artist Niamh McCann that explores the dynamic relationship between the audience, object and mode of display.

Furtive Tears brings together the mythologies of Sir Edward Carson, the Irish unionist politician and barrister with Hans Poelzig, the German architect, painter and set designer. McCann reveals how the interplay of fact and fiction bring the remnants of the past into the present and the things of the present into the future.

Furtive Tears is an installation in four galleries and is a composite of mixed materials that appropriate utopian ideas of fluid relationships between Art/Architecture/Design in early modernism. McCann exhibits assemblages and interventions as well as a newly commissioned video-work Furtive Tears, Salomé’s Lament. A backdrop or film set of a kind, each individual element is autonomous yet presented as one whole.

Exhibition continues to 6 January 2019. See our website www.hughlane.ie for more information on this exhibition.

Opening hours: Tuesday – Thursday 9.45am-6pm / Friday 9.45am-5pm / Saturday 10am-5pm / Sunday 11am-5pm
