An exhibition of Synthetic Aesthetics will open in the Leitrim Sculpture centre, Manorhamilton this Friday, August 24 from 4pm.
The works presented in this group-show from Belfast offer a wide range of interpretations on how cultural identity has become constructed and restrained. The title Synthetic Aesthetics refers to artificiality and hybridization, as processes of making and transforming media. Contributions take the shape of painting, sculpture, installation, drawing and video. Synthetic aesthetics makes reference to science as a dominant method and ideology of the 20th and 21st Centuries, asking the viewer to re-imagine and to reconsider their understanding of culture.
Artists include: Leitrim’s Majella Clancy, Nuala Gregory, Lydia Holmes, Fiona Larkin, Sinead McKeever, Grace McMurray and Doris Rohr.
Show runs until Thur 6th Sept (included). www.leitrimsculpturecentre.ie
