Vanya Lambrecht Ward - Fold / Unfold

VISUAL ART: GALLERY Friday 18 October – Saturday 23 November

Vanya Lambrecht Ward - Fold / Unfold Exhibition Linenhall Arts Centre Mayo

An exhibition exploring paper folding. The art of paper folding, generally known as origami, allows us to form a bridge between our 2D and our 3D understanding of the world, with all sorts of applications from space travel to medicine. One fold and we move from the flat surface to the world of objects. Folding can be free form or structured, and the results can be both aesthetically pleasing and intellectually intriguing. This is the Linenhall’s 20th annual visual art exhibition curated with young audiences in mind.

Vanya Lambrecht Ward has worked in the arts over the last two decades, from theatre and television, to visual art and architecture. She has worked with KidsOwn Publishing Partnership for the last 10 years, lectures in theatre design at IT Sligo and is currently Creative Engagement Resident Artist in The Dock. Her practice is centred around our built environment and combines photography, sculpture, painting and all things spatial. Folding is an essential tool in her practice and explorations.
