EVA GORE-BOOTH: LÁ FHÉILE BRIDE EXHIBITION 2020

 

Museum of Literature Ireland, 86 St Stephen’s Green, Dublin, moli.ie (view all works online at hamiltongallery.ie)

In a show curated by Sligo’s Hamilton Gallery, 93 artists, all women, respond to Eva Gore-Booth’s life and work, finding inspiration in the Sligo landscape, in symbols and imagery from Gore-Booth’s work, episodes in her life and in her likeness. The result is a rich and overwhelmingly warm, affectionate tribute to the pioneering writer, suffragist and political activist.

YAN – TWO GROUP EXHIBITIONS

Taylor Galleries, 16 Kildare St, Dublin, until February 22nd, taylorgalleries.ie and SO Fine Art Editions, 2nd Floor, Powerscourt Townhouse Centre, Dublin, until February 22nd, sofinearteditions.com

Snap! Two group shows sharing the one title, and with an overlap, both drawing on work by artists associated with the Yanagisawa Gallery, Tokyo. SO’s show has Richard Gorman, Yoko Hara, Jin Hirosawa, Mayumi Kimura, Azusa Takahashi and Yasuyoshi Tokida. While the Taylor’s line-up features several Irish, Dutch and German artists, the latter including the estimable Tjibbe Hooghiemstra who has shown widely in Ireland. Fergus Feehily, John Graham and David Quinn join Johannes Eidt, Yoko Hara, Jin Hirosawa, Yasuyoshi Tokida and Shin Watanabe in what promises to be a fascinating cross-cultural dialogue.

THE DARK – AGNES MEYER-BRANDIS, DARREN BANKS, LIZ COLLINI AND SINEAD MCKEEVER

CCA, 10-12 Artillery St, Derry, until March 7th, cca-derry-londonderry.org

For writers, artists and film-makers, looking into the reaches of outer space has often been a way of looking into a mirror, and such proves to be the case with the four artists featured here, from Banks’ blobby “sci-fi looking things” to Collini’s textual drawings, forming constellations of letters and words written in the darkness of space. McKeever looks to planetary catastrophe, Mayer-Brandis considers the prospects for geese on the moon.

NEW ARTIFICIALITY – CATHERINE LEUTENEGGAR

Gallery of Photography, Meeting House Sq, Temple Bar, Dublin, until March 1st, galleryofphotography.ie

Swiss photographer Catherine Leutenegger inaugurates a season of shows highlighting contemporary women photographers. Fascinated by developing technologies, she photographs 3D printed dwellings in China, structures that come across as real but also slightly unreal, a little unsettling in a way that recalls the strange, compelling atmosphere of Thomas Demand’s photographed sculptures.
