Things in Translation

IMG_20130419_195441

Was up at the Highlanes Gallery today, in Drogheda, to suss out the space for the upcoming Things in Translation exhibition, curated by Helen Horgan and Aoife Ruane. Blissful Blue Skies combined with the unstoppable enthusiasm of Aoife and the Highlanes staff made the trip rewarding and enriching! The nets are being cast for actors to bring life to the ‘radio-play’ I’m working on called ‘Elsie’s Counter’. The play should be performed during the month of June, dates are yet to be pinned down.  I’m working most immediately on a found-object sculpture that will perform as a prop during the dramatic reading of the play, but which will perform as what it looks like for the rest of the time in the exhibition. You can catch a glimpse of the sculpture/prop in its unmade ready-made state in the image above, as well as the rows of shelves in the background, pristine and bare, awaiting the return of the LFTT Library. More to come but you can read below the outline of the exhibition:
