Fourth Space, the inaugural exhibition at Uillinn, West Cork Arts Centre's new building, opens on Saturday 31 January 2015.
31 January – 14 Mar 2015
Fourth Space comprises sculptural and installation work by 9 leading artists based in Ireland: David Beattie, Karl Burke, Rhona Byrne, Maud Cotter, Angela Fulcher, Mark Garry, Caoimhe Kilfeather, Dennis McNulty, and Liam O'Callaghan.
Opening the exhibition is Sam Thorne, Artistic Director of Tate St Ives, with guest speakers Cllr. Alan Coleman, Mayor of the County of Cork, and Olivia O'Leary, Journalist and Broadcaster.
The exhibition, which extends throughout the ground floor and first floor galleries, draws together sculptural and installation works by artists who share an approach to creating work that is fluid, questioning, and open-ended and yet displays a fascination with space and materiality. The artists’ work remains specific to their own concerns and practice, but they come together in this exhibition to experiment with and explore notions of space, place, time, legacy and transformation. The artists are enthusiastic and excited to work in this world-class space.
Flying Colours is an exciting initiative from West Cork Arts Centre and West Cork Education Centre bringing the colour, creativity and energy of children's artwork into West Cork Arts Centre's new building from the very beginning. Children from every West Cork Primary School contributed their own individual element to an installation artwork.
The final installation Flying Colours links the ground and first floor galleries. This area is flooded in colour with an array of artwork created by the children of primary schools in the West Cork region.
