BIOSYSTEM

Meadhbh O’Connor

 

30th January - 11th June 2017

Biosystem is a solo exhibition by Méadhbh O’Connor. Méadhbh (pronounced ‘Mave’) is an Irish artist who works at the conjunction of art, science and environmentalism.

The exhibition brings together sculptural installation art that aims to draw attention to our place in a wider natural system that is both powerful and fragile. A constellation of ‘living orbs’, commissioned by the Forestry Commission, are presented as a walk-through gallery installation. The artwork loosely refers to the modern emphasis on and developments in environmental sciences, James Lovelock’s Gaia Hypothesis, graphic illustration in Sci-fi fantasy literature and film, horticultural design and many other references.

Biosystem, an exhibition open to interpretation, aims to offer visitors an imaginative space that reminds us of our position as one part of a much broader and highly-complex eco and climate system; a system upon which we depend for our survival, health and wellbeing.
