Tadhg McSweeney will show new work as part of a two person exhibition with Barbara Knezevic at ArtBox. The exhibition will run from February 5th – March 5th with a preview on Thursday, February 4th.
Object Wars explores the rich history of object making, collecting and the place of the object in fine art today. Museum collections and the objects therein, are often seen as the vehicle of historic human narrative. Depicting scenes from World events, these objects often reduce the complexity of human suffering into a simplified mark or decoration. Through the contemporary art object, artists challenge the framing of history through cultural institutions, whilst acknowledging the delicate balance between the preciousness of the object and the precariousness of life.
