Marie Brett: The Amulet
16 Jan 2015 - 28 Mar 2015
The Amulet, by artist Marie Brett, is shedding light on an often hidden aspect of Irish life, exploring the subject of pregnancy and infant loss. The exhibition stems from The Amulet project (2009-2013), a collaboration between artist Marie Brett, bereaved parents, and three hospital sites: Cork University Maternity Hospital, University Maternity Hospital Limerick, and Waterford Regional Hospital.
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.
Tim Goulding: Patching the Void
20 Feb 2015 - 7 Mar 2015
Taylor Galleries is pleased to present Patching the Void, an exhibition marking the launch of a boxed set of etchings and poems by Tim Goulding. The exhibition also features related paintings and drawings.
Clare Langan: The Floating World
10 Jan 2015 - 3 May 2015
Clare Langan’s The Floating World is a multi-screen film which presents a sensitively poetic message about possible futures and our place in the world. Shot in three contrasting locations, the viewer is led through haunting and elegaic landscapes where white ash or snow swirls and settles, prompting thoughts of a world devasted and beyond habitation. The Floating World questions the relationship between mankind and the earth.
The Watson Archive
1 Jan 2015 - 28 Mar 2015

The Watson Archive was acquired at auction in December 2014.
