Kilkenny Arts Office is pleased to present Things That Matter, an exhibition of works by Sophie Behal.
Responding to the bells of St Canice’s Cathedral, this exhibition looks at the transformative effect of sound, the symbol of the bell throughout history and the standardisation of time.
Through sculptural installation, the work considers sound and rhythm as resonating elements emerging from objects. Thinking of a bell as an object that can hold and amplify the properties of time; its rhythm can come to define a space, a community, a life.
This is the second in a series of three exhibitions by curator in residence Leah Corbett which take place in the Kilkenny Arts Office Gallery from May – September 2019.
This programme is funded by Kilkenny County Council Arts Office, Creative Ireland and the Arts Council of Ireland.
