Eva Koťátková and Dominik Lang: Wasteland
13 Feb 2015 - 21 Mar 2015
Wasteland will transform the gallery into a hypothetical place, an absurd playground overflowing with salvaged objects, postal packages, sculptures and debris. Nestled amidst its poetic surrounds the story of the artists’ attempts to dismantle and relocate a public park to a new location also unfolds. This exhibition explores the institutional rules and regulations that pervade our lives, and what happens when things slip through the cracks. Wasteland marks the first collaboration between Czech artists Eva Koťátková and Dominik Lang.

John Short: New Works
19 Mar 2015 - 18 Apr 2015
Short received a BA degree at the Edinburgh School of Art and an MA from the prestigious Royal College of Art in London and began his career as an illustrator where his work was in much demand from many diverse publications including Vogue, Harpers & Queen, The Irish Times, The Sunday Independent, The Guardian and The Sunday Times. Now based in Dalkey in south County Dublin, he divides his time solely between his teaching (John is a senior lecturer in Drawing & Image Making in the School of Art & Design in DIT) and his own painting. He is inspired by people, their activities and the way they behave – “It is fascinating’, he says, “to just sit and watch people, or, in fact, to watch people watching other people, and it’s that kind of observation that I bring to my painting”.
