VISUAL ART: GALLERY Friday 20th July - Saturday 1st September
Aideen Farrell is a Dublin-based installation artist whose practice explores the systems and physical structures that shape, represent, and impose order on our built environments. She uses a combination of found materials, wood, metal, wire and plaster casts to construct navigable contingent forms that break up and react to the existing spaces. Her work weighs the polished, fixed designs of architecture and urban planning against underlying conditions of precarity and collapse.
Aideen is a recent graduate of the National College of Art and Design with a Degree in Fine Art Painting and Visual Culture, and is a member of Ormond Studios in Dublin. In 2017 she was awarded the Fire Station Graduate Sculpture Award, was highly commended in the Undergraduate Awards for her degree show work, and exhibited as part of the Catalyst Arts Centre Graduate Show, Symbiosis.
Official opening on Friday 20th July at 7.30pm. All welcome.

Cabinet of Wonders #6 features works by a selection of contemporary visual artists: Declan Byrne, Michelle Colfer, Fiona Harrington, Dympna Heanue, Rebecca Lyons, Lisa Mc Lurg, Noel Molloy, Jane Queally, Fiona Reilly and Ian Wieczorek. Come see.
The Cabinet of Wonders is an ongoing curated visual art project presented in the foyer of the Linenhall. The project takes its inspiration from the fashion for Cabinets of Curiosities, which found their beginnings in the Renaissance and were still popular until the late 19th century. Inspired by the eclectic approach of the original collector-curators, it presents a range of works “to engage, intrigue, surprise and delight”.
Cabinet of Wonders #6 will run from the 16th April 2018 onward
