Latest curatorial project: Beauty Must Bear a Pinch, Group Exhibition at Watergarden Gallery, Kilkenny
Date(s) - 10/08/2018 - 19/09/2018
10:00 am - 4:30 pm
A group exhibition by INEX artists Nick Bayne, Gay Brabazon, Bonnie Kavanagh, Serena Kitt, Deborah Hewson, Marie Morrow, Pilib Mac an Bháird, Aoibhinn O’Dea, Mags O Dea (RIP) and Mette Sofie Roche, curated by Beth O’Halloran.
The artists in the INEX collective met while attending NCAD. They have come together in this exhibition in a communal howl to call our distracted selves back to NOW. An acute awareness of the urgency to be present to this moment chimes with the Japanese aesthetic, wabi-sabi – a celebration of the fleeting, the fading and the imperfect.
“Things are either devolving toward, or evolving from, nothingness – delicate traces, faint evidence, at the borders of nothingness, the inconspicuous and overlooked details, the minor and the hidden, the tentative and ephemeral.” – Leonard Koren, Wabi-Sabi For Artists, Poets, Philosophers and Designers.
Through photography, painting, fiber and 3-D work, the artists ask us to engage with the clarity of mind that was employed in the work’s making.
