In conjunction with the themes explored by Colin Martin’s Empathy Lab, renowned textile design artists Helen Delany and Brenda Aherne (Electronic Sheep) are exhibiting a number of textile artworks in the CCI’s adjoining ‘Galerie’. These include Notifications Off, a knitted tapestry that examines changing perceptions about the common experience of mental health. The work weaves in a range of people including artists and cultural figures who have kindly contributed to its creation – Gavin Friday, Róisín Murphy, Aisling Bea, Vince Power and Laura Whitmore. A year in the making, the textile is one of their largest pieces of work to date and is a hybrid of pencil/digital drawings executed in their signature Electronic Sheep style.

Exhibition curator: Anne Kelly, NCAD Gallery, Dublin.

On the opening night, at 5.30pm, Brenda Aherne and Helen Delany 'walk-through' their work in conversation with NCAD Gallery Curator, Anne Kelly (admission free, reservation recommended, in English).
