Commissioner: Culture Ireland
Curators: Temple Bar Gallery + Studios
Exhibitor: Niamh O’Malley
The Irish Pavilion presents the works by Niamh O’Malley.
Gather begins in Niamh O’ Malley’s work space in Temple Bar Gallery + Studios(TBG+S), Dublin, where stone, steel, wood and glass are shaped, composed and assembled. To do so, to make solid and visible is a particular compulsion of O’Malley‘s, a silent but physical response to a precarious time. She is interested in negotiating between the surfaces of the world, how objects and spaces can speak, and how an exhibition can somehow anchor, contain and describe distance. There is comfort in touch, in knowing the edges of things and, during a period of time when we are so much in our heads, the artist remind us that we are also, acutely and collectively, in the world.
