Niamh O’Malley: Glasshouse

- 10.00 AM - 6.00 PM Free, entry
Bluecoat presents the first major solo show in a UK public gallery by Dublin based artist Niamh O’Malley. Working across video, drawing, painting, print & sculpture, O’Malley’s work is distinctive for her use of reflective surfaces such as mirror and glass through which images are constructed, revealed and obscured. At Bluecoat O’Malley has created new sculptural works that respond to the unique gallery architecture. Her sculptures and drawings chart and frame the marks made by gestures and processes, while the lens of her camera gives attention to the surfaces and nature of objects and places. In her videos O’Malley’s investigations into the construction of images has led her to working with sites, such as the hewn face of a quarry, rows of greenhouses, as well as a singular mountainscape and her own garden. O’Malley’s studies of anonymous yet evocative locations evoke the instant when fleeting moments coalesce as memory.
