GMIT graduates exhibit @ 126

THREE GRADUATES of the GMIT and Limerick School of Art and Design will hold an exhibition of their work entitled Sensory Threshold in the 126 gallery on Queen Street.

The exhibiting artists in Sensory Threshold are Suzanne Dolan, Marie Dollard, and Tina Hopp who will display works in sculpture, painting, ceramics, and embroidery.

In her work Suzanne Dolan looks at why we find it more ethical to eat certain animals than others and she seeks to challenge the view that an animal and a piece of meat are two separate things; Marie Dollard exploits the decorative qualities of traditional embroidery and pairs them with the more grotesque, visceral experiences of the body; Tina Hopp’s current work explores notions of crisis and related phenomena such as fragility, failure, transformation, the reversal of hierarchies, and uncertainty.

Sensory Threshold will be officially opened tomorrow at 7pm and will run until Saturday September 24. The artists will give a talk about their work on Friday September 23 at 8pm. See
