Maud Cotter: a consequence of – a dappled world

  • Print

a consequence of – a dappled world is a solo exhibition by Maud Cotter and the third iteration of a body of work developed from 2015 through exhibitions in Limerick City Gallery of Art, 2018 and The Dock, Carrick on Shannon, 2019 and now the Hugh Lane Gallery. Using materials gathered from a variety of sources, her surreal assemblages involve a process influenced by the concept of the readymade. Cotter will respond to the galleries and liminal spaces of the Hugh Lane Gallery combining an apparent simplicity with a powerful sense of joy in the materials of the everyday.

The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue with a new text by Jonathan Griffin, alongside texts by Michael Lightborne (2019), Sarah Kelleher (2018) and Ed Krčma (2016). A supporting programme of talks and lectures to be announced.

Date of opening subject to government restrictions, please see our website for details.
