THE QUIET tensions existing through and between bodies and objects, is a major theme of Liminal Entities, a new group exhibition currently running at the Galway Arts Centre, Dominick Street.
Liminal Entities, curated by Rita McMahon, features work by Hazel Egan, Nicola Gunwhy, and Olivia Normile. Through installation, sound, and moving image, it explores boundaries of bodies, objects, and ideas, and will ask viewers to question what they think they know.
Egan works predominantly with drawing, printmaking, and installation. Her work attempts to translate everyday intangible ideas and encounters into solid yet delicate form. Gunwhy’s work is primarily focused on corporeality and identity, with pertinent issues including ownership of power and the political implications of illness and vulnerability. Olivia Normile uses her practice to negotiate the space around image, object, and idea and the possibilities to speculate beyond them. She considers nature, time, and chance her collaborators and believes in the universal and transformative power of play.
Liminal Entities runs until Friday April 3. See www.galwayartscentre.ie
