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.
