Kiera O'Toole exhibition opening
Starts: Saturday, 8 December 2012 at 3:00 PM
Kiera O'Toole's Master of Philosophy (Fine Art) exhibition Beyond the Pale: Australia, opens on Saturday 8 December at 3pm - all welcome.For her Master of Philosophy (Fine Art), Kiera O'Toole examines the emotional and political landscape of Irish national identity politics from an engendered migrant perspective. Beyond the Pale: Australia presents a trilogy of sculptural and drawing installations, embedded with signs and symbols which reflect mother Ireland's cultural history and identity. O'Toole considers her own recollections of 'Irishness' from the perspective of migrant. As a visual leitmotif, the traditional Irish boat the Currach as a referent to the West of Ireland functions as a discordant cultural reference which frames and conceptually underpins the exhibition. By re-purposing the Currach and other cultural artefacts, O'Toole denies the prospect of finding universal meaning in the art object, but instead arranges the works in a form of story-telling that configures a scene-setter for the whole of Ireland. Please join the artist for the opening on Saturday 8 December at 3pm. The exhibition dates are 5-16 December. Gallery hours are Wed-Sun 12-6pm.
