Dr Georgina Jackson

On Uri Aran

Dr Georgina Jackson, Director of The Douglas Hyde, will lead a tour of the current exhibition by Uri Aran, Take This Dog for Example.

Comprising a series of sculptures, video and photographic works, this is Aran’s first institutional exhibition in Ireland. Through his work, Aran explores the basics of language, behaviour, perception, and the rules and conditions of social interactions. Why are certain meanings ascribed to certain things? Aran’s exhibition presents new and ongoing works layered throughout the gallery space.
