Published on the occasion of the exhibition Gravity
15 July–29 October 2011
Gravity is an intricate and multidisciplinary exploration of the many interpretations of the force of gravity, from science to spirituality, all of which disturb our senses.
The way in which artists, both historic and contemporary, work with gravity reveals much about how the world is viewed, experienced and interpreted.
The Gravity catalogue holds a range of images covering the works of Marina Abramović, Robert Ballagh, Aideen Barry, Maud Cotter, Michael Craig-Martin, Dorothy Cross, Giorgio Cugno, Gerard Dillon, Brian Duggan, Jimmie Durham, Felim Egan, Adam Ekberg, William Forsythe, Patrick Graham, Ilya Kabakov, Claire Langan, Lilly McElroy, Tom Molloy, William Parsons (3rd Earl of Rosse), Alex Pentek, Alana Riley, Kitty Rogers, Sean Scully, Antoni Tàpies, Pieter van der Heyden, Michael Warren, Li Wei, and Grace Weir; including a performance by Johann Lorbeer.
The catalogue includes a foreword by John R. Bowen and director Peter Murray; a conversation between artist Dorothy Cross and Rachael Thomas on Cross’ critically acclaimed video installation Stalactite and Maureen Considine’s essay entitled ‘Artistic instinct and the collective unconscious.’
