‘Bricks in the Rain’ Exhibition in Farmleigh House this month

‘Bricks in the Rain’ is a multi-media exhibition of ceramic sculpture, video art, sound sculpture, and text. It opened at the Farmleigh Gallery, Phoenix Park on Thursday 16th August 2012 and will last until the beginning of October. It will then tour to Belfast, Cork and other venues in Ireland. It will show completely new objects, made here in Ireland by a group of renowned ceramic artists who went to China in 2011 on a five-week residency.

It is hoped that this exhibition develops and strengthens Ireland’s cultural connection with China, and creates a ground-breaking collection of new Irish ceramics.

The title ‘Bricks in the Rain’ derives from a photograph taken by resident photographer Andrew Standen-Raz of bricks used to step through puddles outside the Chinese factory buildings where it rained incessantly for days at the start of the residency.

The new objects are responding to and reflect the residency that took place in China. The exhibiting artists participated in this project, during which they worked in a Chinese brick factory to create the core collection of the Irish Pavilion at the Fule International Ceramic Art Museum (FLICAM)  in X’ian, China as seen in photographs posted on this page entitled ‘Exhibition in China’.
Artists include Sara Flynn, Frances Lambe, Elaine Riordan, Kathleen Standen, Michael Moore, Eleanor Flegg, Andrew Standen-Raz, Peter Fulop, Alex Scott, Neil Read, Tina Byrne, Mandy Parslow, Laura O’Hagan, Sinéad Glynn, Kathleen Moroney, Declan ÓCualáin.
