Opening Reception Tuesday 15 July at 6pm

Galway Arts Festival & Galway Arts Centre present if and then…(again) a multi-media exhibition by Dublin based artist Liam O’Callaghan.

The process of O’Callaghan’s work is one that leaves time and space for continued inventiveness, experimentation and play. A continuing process of thinking by hand, with a make shift, make-do aesthetic is apparent in each work. O’Callaghan’s performative process explores the poetry of objects and the act of making, leading to a collision of sound and object and a sense of experience, for both the artist and the audience. This performative and experimental process creates work that the viewer can question and consider. It frames a darker side to society and the struggles of the human condition in a world striving for a homogenized idealism.

Liam O’Callaghan (b. 1968, Ireland) is based in Dublin; he studied at Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology. He has exhibited widely both nationally and internationally. Recent solo shows include: If and Then…, Butler Gallery, Kilkenny, 2014; Bit Symphony, Temple Bar Gallery Dublin 2011; Rasche Ripken Gallery Berlin, 2009 and Made to Make do Royal Hibernian Academy Dublin, 2006. Selected group shows include: O Brave New World, Rubicon Projects Brussels, 2013; Terrible Beauty, Dublin Contemporary 2011 and Twenty, IMMA Dublin & Redefine: Readymade, Kunstverein Schwerin, 2011. Liam O’Callaghan is represented by the Rubicon Gallery.
