VISUAL presents Cosmic Dust, a group exhibition looking at attempts to orient ourselves in the universe that maintains us. Gathering the ideas of artists, scientists and philosophers, Cosmic Dust explores ways in which art, science and the spiritual can combine to offer a deeper understanding of the metaphysical nature of existence. From our connection to the natural world to our place in the stars, the exhibition delves into humanity’s poetic attempts to build systems of thought, meaning and belonging in the face of a vast and unknowable universe.
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.

The Kingcat of Keshcorran
21 Nov 2014 - 13 Mar 2015
Roscommon Arts Centre is delighted to present The Kingcat of Keshcorran. The entire ethos of the visual arts programme has been developed with a view to expanding the scope for participation in the arts centre’s activities while also initiating relationships with the local population, interest groups and specific communities. The resulting exhibition is a film by Sean Lynch and Michael Holly that will be presented alongside items of local historical and geographical interest from the ephemera collection of local history enthusiast, Liam Byrne. Collecting stories plays a huge role in Sean Lynch’s art practice while Liam is the collector of the objects, relics and ephemera that document these stories.
