Gallery 3 ventures beyond the walls of the gallery developing imaginative ways to work with artists and engage new audiences.
We are delighted to present the second iteration of our screening series with a work by London-based artist Steve Bishop. We are working with Bishop on his forthcoming exhibition in Gallery 2, his first in Ireland, which will open alongside Yuri Pattison’s solo exhibition.
Working across sculpture, installation and film, Bishop’s work often references the familiar or domestic. Through multi-layered environments, everyday objects are presented in their essence or abstracted, creating spaces which are non-places, in which things stand still. Through a poignant absence, interior states and emotions emerge.
Artists present us with new perspectives on the world we live in. Explore the exciting ideas behind our programmes, hear more from the artists we work with and discover new ways of engaging with art.
