The Cabinet of Wonders #3

 

Linenhall Arts Centre

Linenhall Street, Castlebar, Co. Mayo, Ireland

1 February – 20 May 2017

Devised, curated, installed and managed by visual artist Ian Wieczorek

The third manifestation of the Cabinet of Wonders is now on display in the Linenhall Arts Centre Foyer.

THE ARTISTS:

Paul Bokslag applies the elegance of mathematics to a discarded Coke bottle;

Cecilia Bullo offers a meditation on the boundary between art and science, and investigates addiction as a way to exorcise inadequacy and pain;

Stefania Corbelli commemorates a subversive take on the message-in-a-bottle, and the destruction of bridges in Serbia  in 1999;

John Gayer evokes the etherial lightness of a cloud;

Maree Hensey explores memory, loss, the unknown, subliminal and haunting relics of our past and present lives;

Annabel Konig presents an aesthetic reaction to concerns about the many ways in which people are losing their place of residence;

Chris Leach gives us a startling, unexpected and quietly provocative depiction of a major city;

Cecilia Moore offers two contrasting explorations of hidden energy in the natural world;

Cosette Olohan explores the fluidity of text in terms of meaning – intended meaning, hidden meaning, new meaning.

The Cabinet of Wonders is an ongoing project devised and curated by Ian Wieczorek.
