“The Cosmos is an abstract machine, and each world has an assemblage affecting it. If one reduces oneself to one or several abstract lines that will prolong itself in and conjugate with others, producing immediately, directly a world in which it is the world that becomes, then one becomes-everybody/everything.” *
The sculptural works created for this solo exhibition by artist Molly O’Dwyer are fabricated using everyday materials such as floorboards, tiles and fencing; each brought together into an assemblage form. Some works are illuminated internally casting shadows upon the walls of the space, others are themselves projected upon. Light here is an animating force, infiltrating the structure and projecting from the assemblage forming phantoms; projections of an ephemeral landscape. Time exists in the abstract, present in the texture of the found objects and the moving image; the perception of time manufacturing a multiplicity of perspectives.
The artist here uses the materiality of the works to transect the narratological into vibrating particles of past present and future. The frame of reference therefore is essentially one of becoming: becoming-molecular, becoming-assemblage, becoming-imperceptible.
A limited edition catalogue designed by Áine Gibbons containing images of works created for this show and an essay by exhibition curator Dr. Hilary Murray will be available to purchase from RUA RED Gallery.
