Elaine Byrne: RAUM | Thursday 10 January – Saturday 9 February 2013 | Kevin Kavanagh

Opening Reception Thursday 10 January 6 – 8pm

Kevin Kavanagh is pleased to present RAUM an exhibtion by Elaine Byrne.

WHAT ARE OUR HOUSES BUT COFFINS TOWERING

UP FROM THE EARTH INTO THE AIR? ONE STORY,

TWO STORYS – A THOUSAND STORYS. WALLED UP

ON TWO SIDES, ON TEN SIDES. STONE ENTOMBED –

OR WOOD, CLAY,CONCRETE. COFFINS WITH AIRHOLES.

AND OUR CITIES? WALLS, WALLS, WALLS…

WE WILL HAVE NO MORE WALLS

Extract from Manifesto of Tensionism, Frederick Kiesler – which appeared in “De Stijl’ magazine in April, 1925

Elaine Byrne’s installation Raum is a haunted space, constructed from melancholy, symbolic fragments of ways of living that have faded away, and thinking that never was. This exhibition is a tribute to difference neutralized by the uncompromising normative pressures of what modernity actually is.
