The Project Space at PP/S presents Transferrals, an NCAD MA Graduate show by Art in the Contemporary World (ACW) alumni John Busher and Aisling Ní Chlaonadh. Transferrals is a reference to the unknown, and how this is marked with both uneasiness and hesitation.
Showcasing work by both artists made during their time in NCAD, John and Aisling share a mutual interest in the practice of painting and its place in the context of contemporary visual art. The shared concerns of both artists range from a preoccupation with the role of photography within contemporary painting discourse, to the exploration of phenomenological interests that inform their respective practices.
