Spring Highlights - April 2020

SOLARIS NEXUM - ALEXANDRA CARR

Although the construction at the Technological University Dublin has ceased due to Covid-19, Alexandra Carr is continuing to work on the finer points of the design of Solaris Nexum, and is eager to begin the production in her Durham studio after the lock down. She is busy finalising the geometry of the patterns and is fine tuning the interaction they have with the sun at the Summer Solstice. We can report that the contract negotiations with the relevant stakeholders have been completed and public liability, product liability and employer’s liability have been arranged. We expect that the enforced quarantine measures will delay the inauguration of Solaris Nexum.

We are pleased to announce that Alexandra Carr's Cloud of Knowing is featured at Axis Web to read more click here

LAS MENINAS  - PIP DICKENS  

In November 2017, Pip Dickens solo exhibition Mirrors  began an exploration into mirrors and reflections.  Some of these paintings considered the painted portrait as a kind of mirror, or the experience of self-reflection and analysis and questioned the contemporary urge to check one’s existence with a selfie.  The resultant exhibition was a strange grouping of paintings that offered a variety of portals that might exist for us to climb through and view ourselves or others from differing perspectives, familiar and unfamiliar.

‘Las Meninas’ is one such environment – a puzzle picture that teases and seduces. When Foucault says of it: “But it isn’t a picture; it is a mirror” what can be reflected are a range of interpretations – a virtual unreality perhaps.

NEW PICTURES FROM PARADISE - THOMAS STRUTH

In January 2020, after three years in the making the Thomas Struth retrospective at Guggenheim Bilbao closed with an unusual finissage. It is the 65-year-old German photographer’s most extensive exhibition so far, spanning from his early post-war Düsseldorf cityscapes to his recent collaborations with NASA, Houston, Max Planck Institute, Garching and the Leibnitz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research, Berlin. The display showcases Struth’s diverse approach to various subject matters aligned with his instantly recognisable visual language.
