Robert Armstrong and Aileen Murphy will take part in a group show alongside, Ciaran Bowen, John Busher, Eamonn Carter, Serena Caulfield, Helen Gaynor, Kate Murphy, Rosie O’Gorman, Emma Roche, Breda Stacey, George Warren and Michael Warren. And Creatures Dream…A New Language taken from Susan Stewart’s poem, A Language, explores the relationship of perception to conscious being, to knowing, and to human and aesthetic encounters. Much of the work hints at the instability of perception, which relies on memory – itself an unsafe faculty – and the fragility of the edifice of knowledge.
