The poetics of space: Laura Gannon’s video is an exploration of how Eilish Lavelle relates to the interior of her home in Goleen, West Cork. As she describes her vision for the space we can match it with the actuality.

Composer Susan Stenger’s accompanying score incorporates sounds from the building, and the surrounding landscape.

Kisana

Jordi Fornies
Olivier Cornet Gallery, 3 Great Denmark St, Dublin until December 20th oliviercornetgallery.com
Jordi Fornies’s recent work reaches beyond conventional, two-dimensional form of painting.

He looked to functional and natural forms for inspiration, non-art forms as he terms them, including ancient farming implements, shaped by and maintaining an essential link with the land.

The results are boldly stated and intensely concentrated.

The Dream Drawing

Nuala Clarke
Áras Inis Gluaire, Church St, Belmullet, Co Mayo until January 10th, 2020 nualaclarke.com
Nuala Clarke’s exhibition has its origins in a dream she experienced when she was reading Robert Boyle’s 17th century treatise “Experiments and Considerations Touching Colours”.

She dreamt of the diaphanous, shining and colour’d bodies of which he wrote, in the form of elegantly folded, suspended, coloured planes – beautifully encapsulated in her work.
