Abigail O’Brien: With Bread
23 Jan 2015 - 13 Mar 2015
While bread and the craft of making it are nearly as old as civilisation itself, Pain au levain was the first leavened bread, probably discovered in Egypt six thousand years ago. Artist Abigail O’Brien’s interest in bread, its elemental properties, the magical process that takes place in its making, its centrality in human daily life across race and culture and religion, its familial, social and cultural importance, and its rich symbolism, spans some twenty years.
Marie Brett: The Amulet
16 Jan 2015 - 28 Mar 2015

Ella de Búrca: GOBO
6 Feb 2015 - 14 Mar 2015
The trail of Roger Casement, hero, traitor, martyr, pervert; (who he is is who he is to you) led de Búrca to Iquitos, Peru where Casement’s humanitarian work had ended the savage reign of the Ango-Peruvian Rubber company. After decades of widespread rape, torture and usury at the hands of unchecked capitalism, the indigenous culture had been all but erased. A century later, globalized capitalism has wreaked similar decay upon the monuments that those rubber barons built to themselves.
