――― Level 5 ―――

In Hypercarbon, Austin McQuinn uses a range of carbon-based materials including Chinese Ink, bog oak, bog deal, packing paper, quartz, bees wax and his own body to make new work for this exhibition in Thurles. The intense energy in the work expresses a hypersensitivity to these materials, forging connections between the molecular and the cosmological. This is Austin’s first solo exhibition in Tipperary, where he lives and works, and was specially commissioned by The Source Arts Centre, Thurles.

Artist and writer Austin McQuinn has exhibited widely with solo shows at DCP, San Francisco; Butler Gallery, Kilkenny Castle, and three solo exhibitions at Project, Dublin. His work is held in public and private collections in Ireland, UK and USA. His upcoming book, titled ‘Becoming Audible: Sounding Animality in Performance’, will be published by Penn State University Press in Spring, 2021. He lives and works on Slievenamon, in South Tipperary.

Official launch TBA.
