Wed-Sat noon-6pm


This exhibition was inspired by a short text by Joan Jonas, ‘Fawn Grove’, originally published in an issue of the magazine Art-Rite in 1974. The text recounts a walk that Jonas took through the countryside with her dog Sappho. The content, structure and rhythm of the text reflect numerous elements that have recurred in Jonas’s work over a long career: the notion of a journey, circular movement, mirroring, our relationship to animals and nature and the artist’s abiding interest in poetry and literature.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication with contributions from Éric Alliez, Daisy Lafarge and Caoimhín Mac Giolla Léith.
