The Assemblage of Two: de/Construction Site | Thursday 28 July – Saturday 20 August 2022 | GOMA Gallery of Modern Art
――― In venue ―――

Guests arriving at GOMA for the launch of de/Construction Site on 28 July will be greeted by the pile of materials that artists Julie Cusack and Clare Scott, aka The Assemblage of Two, will use in the creation of an unplanned installation of artwork to be completed during the first two weeks of August. Using recycled wood, paper, board, old paintings, the artists will deconstruct and attempt to reassemble their respective practices of painting and installation. The nominally finished work will be on display for the last week of this three-week experiment. Visitors are invited to stop by the gallery over the course of the project to watch the artists at work.

Julie Cusack studied Visual Education at South East Technological University (SETU) and Galway Mayo Institute of Technology. She has been practicing and teaching drawing and painting for 15 years in a wide variety of contexts. Working on paper, wood and canvas she creates layered, abstract paintings rooted in drawing, a tool she not only uses as representative but as a way to engage in the intuitive physicality of making marks on a surface.

As an exhibiting painter with experience in stage and film design, Clare Scott returned to college to reframe her practice and to address conflicts between the process of making art and the art market. With a degree in Visual Arts from South East Technological University (SETU) and an MA in Art & process from CIT Crawford in Cork, she turned to exploring materials and media through temporary, large-scale, sculptural installations which remain rooted in painting.
