Ger Mayock retrospective at the Linenhall

image preview

Currently on show in the gallery of the Linenhall Arts Centre, Castlebar is Meadowsweet: A Retrospective, an exhibition that brings together the work of artist Ger Mayock who died in May 2006. Mayock grew up in Ross West, near Castlebar, and his childhood experiences of traditional Irish music and culture went on to inform and inspire a body of work including sculpture, writing, film, music composition, and photography. A close bond with wood and stone dominated Mayock’s work during the final years of his life and he produced a very significant body of sculpture, much of which is on view at this retrospective exhibition. In Mayock’s own words, “The carvings that I make are capturing a moment, be it from a dream or a reality, like an image or, more accurately, a state of mind we have all known from a day or from a lifetime, common to us all and unique to each one of us”. The exhibition also includes Ger Mayock's writings, photography, and his short film War. The exhibition runs until Saturday July 3.
