Olives, Oysters and Oranges
The Olivier Cornet Gallery is delighted to present Olives, Oysters and Oranges, a group show featuring watercolour paintings around mentions of food in James Joyce’s novel ‘Ulysses’.
The exhibition will feature new work by gallery artists Yanny Petters and Eoin Mac Lochlainn and the following invited artists: Michelle Boyle, Áine Divine and John Keating.
The show will also feature ‘Penelope’, filmed by Conor Tobin, performed by Caitríona Ní Threasaigh and Aaron Hughes as Leopold Bloom.
The title of the show, ‘Olives, Oysters and Oranges’, comes from Dr Small’s current research into the semiotics of food in Ulysses.
On Saturday 15 June and Sunday 16 June, Dublin Sketchers will present an exhibition of sketchbooks, also on the theme of food.
On Sunday 16 June, from 3pm onwards, visitors will be able to indulge in a selection of food and cheeses from our sponsors, the Derry-based award-winning artisan Tamnagh Foods. A live performance of ‘Penelope’ by the artist Caitríona Ní Threasaigh will also take place on the day.
The exhibition is part of the Fringe programme of the Bloomsday Festival, organised by the James Joyce Centre Dublin. It will run until the 30th of June.
A selection of works can be previewed here.
