Pallas Projects/Studios are pleased to present Tadhg Ó Cuirrín—Lift Yourself the fourth exhibition of our 2019 Artist-Initiated Projects programme.
It isn’t hard to see, ooh
The hangups we have today
Said we need to strive for more liberty
Lift yourself up on your feet, let’s get it on
Lift Yourself is a series of small watercolour works on paper that draw inspiration from the omnipresence of plastic as a material and a symbol, conspiracy theories, the mountainous landscape of northern Việt Nam, consumerism, the weather, the Crystal World and Mount Analogue, environmentalism, and Kanye West.
Tadhg Ó Cuirrín is an Irish visual artist and teacher based in Hà Nội, Vietnam. He received an honours degree in Fine Art, Painting in the Limerick School of Art and Design in 2009. He works in a variety of different media, has exhibited somewhat widely in the past, and has worked for a number of artist-run spaces and organisations. His work is interested in the strategies we employ to make sense of the often bewildering world around us.
