Sean Lynch Adventure: Capital, Ireland at Venice.
The Irish Tour at the Royal Hibernian Academy
July 08, 2016 – August 21, 2016
RHA Gallery II

Combining sculpture, video and graphic elements, Adventure: Capital explores the allegories and underlying narratives of the contemporary architectural and social environment through encounters with the sculptures of John Burke, the quarries of Cornwall, megalithic ‘cursing’ stones, urban vandalism, and Irish Free State banknotes.

Alongside Adventure: Capital, Lynch presents a new video installation, Campaign to Change the National Monuments Acts, 2016 that investigates the legal status of metal detectors in Ireland. Following national controversy around the finding of the Derrynaflan Hoard, a medieval treasure trove uncovered in the 1980s, the state hastily placed a blanket ban on the public use of all devices used to search for archaeological objects. This legislation effectively destroyed the fledgling Irish metal detectorist community of Ireland. Using the tropes of a promotional video, Campaign to Change the National Monuments Acts advocates for a change in these authoritarian laws, where ideas of nationhood, individual freedom, and the need for new forms of community-led heritage are all explored on a journey narrated by Lynch’s long-time collaborator Gina Moxley.

Diana Copperwhite – Driven by Distraction at the Royal Hibernian Academy

July 08, 2016 – December 21, 2016
RHA Atrium, RHA Foyer

As part of her presentation for the RHA, Diana Copperwhite ARHA will show recent large-scale paintings and a site-specific wall drawing.

“Diana Copperwhite’s work focuses on how the human psyche processes information, and looks at the mechanisms of how we formulate what is real. With her work, she is fully aware that such realities may only hold validity for an instant, and that we are constantly processing and changing what we logically hold as experience and memory. Layering fragmented sources that range from personal memory to science, from media and internet to personal memory.”

Farmleigh

Alice Maher will take part in a group exhibition at Farmleigh Gallery, Phoenix Park, Castleknock, Dublin 15.

June 10th-August 7th

The exhibition, in Farmleigh Gallery, Phoenix Park comprises mainly sculptural work selected by artist Janet Mullarney, focusing on how the choice of specific materials makes certain sculptures work. The title refers to how the unity of both concept and the visual tangibility of the chosen material is imperative to the reading of the work, a quality that may often be overlooked. The artists are many and varied, the work is sculpture or certainly sculptural. Some of the work of the older artists, which was made in the 1990s juxtaposes well with work being made by younger artists now.

The artists are Cecily Brennan, Dorothy Cross, Maud Cotter, Aleana Egan, John Gibbons, Tony Hill, Mary Kelly, Alice Maher, Eileen McDonagh, Locky Morris, Paul Mosse, Helen O’Leary, Niamh O’Malley, Adrian Paci, Rachel Parry, Alan Phelan, Kathy Prendergast, Linda Quinlan, David Quinn, Eddie Rafferty, Charles Tyrrell, Michael Warren and Daphne Wright.
