Make Good, Make Better Exhibition
Make good, make better is a forthcoming show by Saidhbhín Gibson at the Arthouse, Stradbally, Co Laois. It will comprise of new work produced specifically for the exhibition.
Arthouse Gallery, Stradbally
4th April to 24th April 2013
The work marries aspects of man’s domesticity with elements of the natural world. This has been executed through delicate mark-making in the drawings and intricate thread based techniques (needlepoint lace) in the made objects. The work is a response to the natural world that exists around us, and our relationship with that which is not man-made.
Exhibits comprise of drawings on paper, photographic work and a number of art objects. Also on show are thread based works incorporating needlepoint lace with components from trees.
Rather than being an overt statement of a perceived improvement of nature by the artist, the title Make good, make better is purposefully ambiguous. The reflexive title refers both to the artist’s adornment of the natural artifact and also to our betterment through close association with nature.
Exhibition opening hours: Tuesday – Friday, 1 – 4.30 p.m. and Saturday, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m.
