Former ACW student, Fiona Woods, will be exhibiting a new body of work, entitled animal OPERA, at Leitrim Sculpture Centre, from October 19th – November 1st. For those too far away to travel, there will be an exhibition website launching on October 19th as well. Full details below from Fiona:

animal OPERA is a body of new work created as a result of an Artist Residency Award at Leitrim Sculpture Centre, 2012. Woods has here returned to her roots in sculpture, employing a range of material processes, including the materiality of sound, to generate a series of installations and wall/floor based objects across the three spaces of the gallery.

The work in the exhibition focuses on a field of interactions between humans and other animals. Continuities and connections across animal and material forms are explored, mapping an alternative topology of human/ animal relations. The artist engages critically with the role that ‘looking at animals’ plays in our attitude to the non-human world: lenses, blind spots and systems of notation are explored visually and aurally.

animal OPERA is presented as a gallery exhibition and a website, including an essay by the artist and an audio work for dissemination through web channels, co-authored with Andrew Collins. The website will launch on October 19th.

An opening reception for the exhibition will take place from 4 – 8pm on Friday October 19th. animal OPERA will culminate with an artist talk on Wednesday October 31st at 5pm in the gallery.
