Exhibition: I send my love along the Boyne

From: 8th June 2019
To: 16th August 2019
The River Boyne is a defining topographical feature of Meath, its environs, and the countryside stretching from its source in Carbury, Co. Kildare to the Meath/Louth border beyond Drogheda, where it meets the sea. Despite its relatively short course – just 70 miles – it is potent with important historical, archaeological and mythical connotations and has been known since ancient times, featuring in the first known map of Ireland drawn by Ptolemy in 140 AD. The exhibition thematically takes its cue from the river Boyne and the topography, archaeology, and mythology of the surrounding area. Rich in geological, historical, archaeological and mythical tropes, the river is one of the most potent symbols of not only a journey towards but also the realisation of enlightenment. I send my love along the Boyne is underpinned by works that explore our complex relationship with water, its mythological, subliminal and restorative powers.


Exhibition: Dissolving by the Worm Moon - Bassam Al-Sabah

From: 31st August 2019
To: 26th October 2019
Bassam Al-Sabah’s exhibition Dissolving by the Worm Moon will present new and existing works that convey visions of war, resistance, and perseverance. Using video, painting, and sculpture, Al-Sabah’s installations are concerned with how the past is constantly reviewed to meet the present. Examining the agendas and effects of children’s broadcasting in Iraq between 1970 to the present day, scenes of war and destruction are shown in parallel with fantasy and reality, the hero and the everyday, the make-believe and fact. As the juvenile fantasy breaks down into the veracity of adulthood, the links between violence, representation, and preservation are deconstructed.
