Gallery Walkthrough—Marie Farrington

Time: 1.00pm Saturday 25th May 2019

Venue: Pallas Projects/Studios

Admission free - All welcome - No booking required


Artist Marie Farrington will host an informal walkthrough of her current exhibition Fore, fold during which she will discuss the research behind the work, its development, and how the exhibition ties into broader concerns within her sculptural practice.

Fore, fold uses a ghost story, embedded in the history of Marsh’s Library, to unpack the exchanges between myth, language, material and place. An allusion to the Heideggerian Fourfold linking the earth, sky, divinities and mortals, Fore, fold also plays on the idea of multiplicity, an ongoing concern both in the casting processes Marie employs and in relation to the historical multiplicities that present themselves in the objects, forms and places researched.

Marie Farrington studied in DIT (BA, 2013, 1.1) and NCAD (MA, 2016, 1.1).
