Preview Thursday 7th Nov. 4.30-7.30 pm. Sample studios and Tactic Visual Arts Programme present Material Reverie, the first solo show by artist Anna O’Riordan.
Material Reverie is a meditation on vast expanses of time. Expanding on Anna’s previous work, Material Reverie enters the realm of myth making, entering a third space which is neither real nor imagined but existing as both at once. The endurance of time is understood through fragments of buried pasts, both revealing and concealing collective memories and histories. Ruined material accumulated in the landscape blend together in an imagined landscape of the mind. The compression of time is expressed in the birth of new objects though processes of folding flattening, compressing, liquefying and solidifying.
Anna O’Riordan is a visual artist, based in Cork City. Anna’s practice is multidisciplinary, incorporating installation, sculpture and print. Her work is concerned with the language of the ruin as an expression of the endurance of time and the continuous dialogue between the past and the present. #oriordan.anna #stlukes #tactic_sample #samplestudios
