The Backspace Gallery Presents: Máirín Ní Shíocháin A Cabinet of Speculations – Opening Event
18 January, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Once considered a dying illustrative form, a new generation of artists is discovering the intriguing sculptural possibilities of flat paper, a medium primarily associated with 2D art.
Like her counterparts who first documented the life forms found in the new worlds of the Galapagos Islands and Australia, Shíocháin has amassed a ‘collection’ of specimens resembling species whose name you can’t quite place. These creatures come from a world parallel to our own – parallel but not intersecting – equally rich in diverse life forms, but life forms ultimately unfamiliar to our eyes.
