Doireann Ní Ghrioghair: Kingdom Come | Friday 19 September – Saturday 11 October 2014 | CIT Wandesford Quay Gallery

Opening Reception Thursday 18 September at 6pm

Doireann Ní Ghrioghair’s exhibition Kingdom Cometakes the debris of redundant, toppled historical monuments and imbues them with bright, lurid pinks, yellows, greens,blues and the gaudiness and synthetics of consumer capitalism. Obelisks,columns and plinths are embedded in the aesthetic language of power and control. Re-imagined here, they become shaky, ridiculous totems to a precarious empire; their potency suffused with frivolousness and flippancy. The solemn austerity of pompous tyrants is disrupted with playfulness and pleasure and the monuments are denied their heroic autonomy.Doireann Ní Ghrioghair is the winner of the 2013 Now Wakes the Sea Award.Graduating in 2010 with an MA in Fine Arts from Chelsea College of Art,London, she is currently undertaking a long-term residency at Firestation Studios, Dublin. Previous exhibitions include Now Wakes the Sea, Kinsale Arts Festival 2013, Creekside Open 13 &’11, APT Gallery London, curated by Ceri Hand and Phyllida Barlow respectively and After the Future, Eva International,Limerick curated by Annie Fletcher. Doireann will be giving anartist’s talk on Wednesday the 24th of September at 11.30am.
