Gallery Open Everyday 2-7pm from SEP 8-21
Two artists present an eclectic ensemble of paraphernalia generating a space to explore diverse aspects of childhood play. Foley’s work is a development of research, investigating playgrounds & play histories within the north Dublin Inner city, which manifests in a kind of pseudo-historical narrative through objects, drawings & audio tape recordings. Carri’s work explores the childhood activity of building huts as hiding places, the transformation of the object that occurs within children’s play and the benefits of being childlike as an adult.
