Loping Towards Darkness

Saidhbhín Gibson

16 Sept 2017 - 21 Jan 2018 |

This exhibition contains new and recent works, shifting the focus from our humancentric
approaches to our environment, towards nature and the non-human.
Gibson’s work questions society’s ceaseless cleansing and compartmentalisation
of the outdoors. She explores this through sensory and material approaches and
there is an element of “magpie” in her working process; shed or discarded matter
– both natural and manmade – is gathered on a continuous basis and re-emerges
in hybrids of sculptural objects and images, suggesting other potential balances in
our shared relationship with nature.
