――― In venue ―――

Ormston House warmly invites you to the opening party for Figures – a solo exhibition by Richard Malone, on Saturday 10 September, 7 – 9pm. Admission is free and all are welcome.

Knotting, binding, weaving, draping – Richard Malone uses gendered labour practices and fabrications to test the limitations of language, gesture and symbolism in constructing meaning and identity. Their art practice centres on experiences of queerness, class, place and otherness, never settling on given definitions. Their sculptures and installations suggest a sense of movement and theatre – some appear to be alive, captured in elegant postures or in suspended mischief. Each carries multiple techniques and multiple possibilities for creating a new, ephemeral, and sometimes humorous language that plays with our understanding of both mimetic and semantic form.

Richard Malone is a cross-disciplinary, award-winning artist and designer from Wexford. Their work has been exhibited internationally, and features in some of the world’s most prestigious museum collections including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, the Design Museum in London, the National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne, and the Design and Crafts Council Ireland. Recent exhibitions include knot, bind Gesture, bend (2022) at the National Gallery of Ireland, and Making and Momentum: In Conversation with Eileen Gray (2021-2022) at the iconic E-1027 in France, touring to the National Museum in Dublin, and the Wexford County Council Municipal Buildings in Wexford, Malone and Gray’s hometown.

Figures is kindly supported the Arts Council of Ireland and Limerick City & County Council.
