- Mon-Sun: 2pm-6pm
Wed : 2pm-8pm
Opening Thursday 2 February from 6.30pm to 8pm
This new multimedia body of work responds to the 100th anniversary of a North-South border being established on the island of Ireland. Metaphorically mining the deep seams of colonialist atrocities and plundering, Hairline Crack [a dialogue] combines sculpture, collage and video to question the vestiges of dominant power structures. Niamh McCann cuts through well-devised spectacles to subvert landscapes, material histories as well as the long dominion humans have held over beasts and place. She playfully invites us to reconsider the stories we think we know.
Exhibition presented in collaboration with the Wilhelm-Hack-Museum (Ludwigshafen, Germany)
