Saidhbhín Gibson: Loping Towards Darkness | Saturday 16 September 2017  – Sunday 21 January 2018 | VISUAL Centre for Contemporary Art

This exhibition contains new and recent works, shifting the focus from our humancentric approaches to our environment, towards nature and the non-human.

Gibson’s work questions society’s ceaseless cleansing and compartmentalisation of the outdoors. She explores this through sensory and material approaches and there is an element of “magpie” in her working process; shed or discarded matter – both natural and manmade – is gathered on a continuous basis and re-emerges in hybrids of sculptural objects and images, suggesting other potential balances in our shared relationship with nature.
