IMMA Collection: A Fiction Close to Reality
A Fiction Close to Reality is a group exhibition featuring key works from the IMMA Collection by Nalini Malani, Caroline McCarthy, Dennis Oppenheim, Mary Farl Powers, Betsabeé Romero and Richard Wentworth, alongside loaned works by Bassam Al-Sabah and Geta Brătescu. Through various mediums the artists explore cycles of life and death, migration, materialisation and the erosion of materiality.
With a focus on processes of materialisation and erosion, A Fiction Close to Reality, brings together artworks in a variety of mediums including print, photography, shadow play, sculpture and animation. The title refers to a freedom of imagination that is rooted in the material of the everyday. The fictions called into play by the various works in the exhibition – whether performed, printed, painted, photographed or animated – are fictions close to reality.
This group exhibition features works by Bassam Al-Sabah, Geta Brătescu, Nalini Malani, Dennis Oppenheim, Mary Farl Powers, Betsabeé Romero and will be expanded to include works by Caroline McCarthy and Richard Wentworth in May 2019.
