From Here To There Opening

Join us for the opening of From Here to There with artists David Lunney, Áine McBride and Katie Watchorn on Thursday 28 October from 6pm.

From Here to There refers to transitions, shifts in points of view, and ways to belong. Each of the artists engages with forms of displacement; David Lunney’s movable sculptures that frame and re-frame his camera’s point of view, Áine McBride’s focus on the built environment and what is unaccounted for in-between; and Katie Watchorn’s translations of structures and materials found in rural farming. Since 20 September, they have been working onsite at The Douglas Hyde using the Gallery as a studio; a space to think, build, experiment, and make new work. Continuing until 5 February 2022, the installation of their group exhibition will continue to adapt and alter over time.
