The Artist's Eye

Acknowledging the crucial role artists play in influencing and shaping other artistic practices, ‘The Artist’s Eye’ series asks those exhibiting in Gallery 1 to invite an artist of influence to present work in Gallery 2. In this instalment, Uri Aran has invited longtime friend and collaborator Josh Tonsfeldt.

Tonsfeldt’s photographs, videos, sculptures and collection of found objects are often worked into larger sculptures and installations, responding to the site of their display. On this occasion, he has taken into account The Douglas Hyde’s location on a university campus, the gallery space itself and its processes of production to create an installation which presents a new video work in the gallery’s workshop as well as a series of ongoing sculptural works reconfigured across the intimate space of the gallery.
