"Archipeligo and Other Stories: Ciaran Walsh"
2006-07-26 until 2006-09-30
Four is pleased to present Archipeligo and Other Stories, an
exhibition of new work by Ciaran Walsh. Walsh's work plays with
imagined geographies and popular culture references to explore notions
of escapism, confinement and the sense that perfection is always
The small scale representations of fictional places, architecture and
situations mediate between these imagined personal landscapes and
narratives, and a sensation of restraint experienced through the
physical and social facts of external reality. Through sculptural and
textual works that are often whimsical in tone, Walsh focuses on these
deviations from the navigation of daily life in a manner that is both
playful and despairing.
Graduating from Dun Laoghaire Institute of Art, Design and Technology
in 2003 and currently living and working in Dublin, Ciaran Walsh has
exhibited in 'Haunted' in the City Arts Centre, 'Elsewhere from Here'
in the Workroom, and 'Flagged' a part of the VISUALISE: Carlow public
art programme. He has most recently exhibited as part of 'Imagined -
Visions of Architecture' in The Dock, Carrick-on-Shannon in June of
this year and is presently working as curator for part of VISUALISE:
Carlow's 2006/2007 programme. This is his first solo show.
