Preview 19th March 7pm
hɛkəl~s is an exhibition of work by visual artists Nollaig Molloy and Ruth Kerr. Both Nollaig and Ruth interrogate assumptions made about the world we live in through their art practice. Both artists employ a similar artistic method - they create their work through researching and actively experimenting with materials querying human perception. Equivalently both artists have interdisciplinary practices. Their works in hɛkəl~s will subtly heckle the overlapping disciplines of art & craft and art & science, exploring the perception of the world we live in and questioning it's nature; what is reality and what is fiction? hɛkəl~s will challenge and interrupt the accepted parameters of the material world, contemplating the physical structure of things.
