Exhibitions

Curator Victoria Evans invited me to create and exhibit a new paper installation for the Royal Hibernian Academy (RHA), Ely Place, Dublin, Ireland which opened on 19th January 2018. This ran until April 2018, alongside gallery exhibitions by Grayson Perry, Elizabeth Magill, Niall de Buitléar and a selection of Irish/American landscapes.

Irish film maker Paddy Cahill created the following short film of the work which can be seen on the following link; Folded Space RHA 2018

I look forward to hopefully collaborating with Paddy later this year…
