――― In venue ―――

The LAB Gallery presents idirlinn, shifting silence an exhibition by Rosie O’Reilly. Journeying through the layers of mythology, local wisdom, animism, blue humanities and ecophilosophy, this body of work by Rosie O’Reilly searches for new and hybrid ways to exist in ‘the mesh’ – a place of acknowledged ecocide and climate chaos.

In this exhibition, both process and materiality overlap through materials that embody themes of metamorphosis and transformation.

It asks us, how can we dissimagine the inevitably of things and form new layers of meaning, in order to build new worlds together?
