The Plastic House is a beautiful renovation on a residential house in Dublin by Architecture Republic. The house recently won a Special Mention at the AAI Awards 2010, but at the awards assesment the question was raised about whether the house was really architecture or more like an art installation. The architects decided to play with this comment and reinforce the controversy by opening the house as a temporary exhibition space, raising the discussion about the boundaries between Art & Architecture.
I am really excited to say that I have been selected as one of the artists to exhibit a piece in the house. I am really looking forward to seeing the dialogue between the photo & the architecture of the space. The other artists participating include John Graham, Paul Murnaghan, Aoife Desmond, Gregory Dunn, David Folan and Sharon McCarthy and Rene Ettirgam.
The exhibition entitled 'Right Place, Right Space?' opens on Friday 27th August at 7pm in the Plastic House, 26 Spender Street North, East Wall, Dublin 3 and runs until Sunday 29th August.
