nag Launch Exhibition

There is no such thing as an empty space or an empty time.
There is always something to see something to hear.
In fact, try as we may to make a silence, we cannot.

In among all the busyness of November there was another exhibition that I was a part of. It was the launch of nag, new art gallery in Dublin. I am delighted to be one of the artists represented by Mark St. John Ellis as part of this new venture. nag was previously a project space supporting emerging artists but has now been relaunched as a commercial gallery. The gallery and website were launched on the 8th November at the opening of an exhibition of the work of the represented artists. Also represented are Brian FayElijah's MantleEoin O'ConnorKieran MooreKohei NakataMargaret O'BrienPertiwi and Tom O' Dea.

"nag represented artists tend to have a commonality in process, an obsession for detail, refined execution and finish. Whilst the artists are conceptually driven, the conventional object, in the form of drawing, painting and sculpture is valued and accessible to collector and curator."

For the exhibition my work is presented as an object. There are 2 minimalist black boxes, Document and Place, which open to reveal a collection of limited edition photographs. You can see them on the  pedestals in the installation photos below.
