The Irish Museum of Modern Art presents The weakened eye of day a new project by Isabel Nolan.

20 Jun 2014 - 30 Aug 2014

This exhibition of film and installation was developed during a residency at the Organic Centre Co. Leitrim last year. Working with the staff and students of the centre, Shevlin researched and recreated a series of experiments, inspired by the cult novel Supernature, by Lyall Watson (1973), exploring the many and often astounding ways in which nature manifests itself and adapts to its environment including lunar cycles and Hashimoto’s experiments in giving voice to a cactus.
