The ghost in the machine?

IN OUR headlong rush to embrace technology, have was missed something...something that could affect our very soul?

This is the question artist Maeve Curtis will explore in her new solo exhibition I Wait Towards You, Pale With The Effort Of It, which opens on Friday November 5 in the Norman Villa Gallery, Lower Salthill. The guest speaker will be writer Mike McCormack.

The work at this exhibition is inspired by a belief among some people in the 19th century that each time a photograph was taken it removed something from our soul. Curtis investigates this anxiety using family snapshots, paint, and graphite.

The show runs until November 20. The gallery opening hours are Wednesday to Saturday from 12 noon to 6pm. For more information contact 091 - 521131.
