Noli Me Tangere meaning 'Touch Me Not' is an exhibition featuring the work of 14 artists from the Backwater Artists Group, including some of my own work, and is curated by Tom Dalton and David Upton.
Noli me tangere, when viewed through the lens of these artworks, creates an in-between state, bordering the surreal, conjuring associations of the supernatural and the otherworldly. This statement can simply be interpreted as a physical distance between viewer and subject while some works suggest a conceptual intangibility, where the viewer is faced with an ambiguity of intention. In positioning the work as either the threat or the threatened, an element of danger and vulnerability comes into play.
You can read more on the Wandesford Quay Gallery website. You are all very welcome to the opening reception on November 16th at 6pm. The exhibition will run Monday to Staurday from 10am- 6pm until the 1st December at the Wandesford Quay Gallery, Cork.
