The L Shape | Jenny Brady & Sarah Browne at The Dock, Carrick-On-Shannon Date/Time
Date(s) - 15/09/2018 - 03/11/2018

The Dock





Exhibition Opening: Saturday 15th September 2pm. Exhibition preview followed by a talk with artists Jenny Brady, Sarah Browne and curator Alice Butler.

The L Shape is an exhibition featuring artists Jenny Brady and Sarah Browne at the centre of which are two moving image works; a new presentation of Brady’s Going to the Mountain (2015) and Browne’s The Invisible Limb (2014), showing for the first time in a gallery context in Ireland.

A nod to the physical relationship between The Dock’s two gallery spaces, The L Shape is conceived as an exhibition that foregrounds the point at which two distinct artistic practices meet and thereby generate momentum. The exhibition title also refers to the shape of a periscope, an instrument for observation that, like both Going to the Mountain and The Invisible Limb plays with and redirects the reflective properties of the mirror, an object frequently used as a metaphor for cinema.

Embracing the transformation of The Dock’s two main galleries into proto-cinema spaces, The L Shape will be framed by two screening events relating to ideas in Brady and Browne’s moving image works. Ventriloquist Nina Conti will take part in a discussion after the screening of her film Her Master’s Voice (2012) on September 22nd and artist John Smith will participate in a conversation around his work in relation to The L Shape on Saturday October 13th.

Exhibition continues until Saturday 3rd November, 2018.
