Illuminating Art & Ideas
An exhibition at Illuminations, Maynooth University
15 September to 3 October
To celebrate the installation of the sculpture ‘Dance’, Illuminations presents an exhibition by Rachel Joynt and Remco de Fouw, revealing the concepts, design ideas and working practices which led to the creation of ‘Dance’.
The sculpture ‘Dance’, commissioned for the plaza outside the Iontas Building, embodies the creativity, intellectual endeavour and commonality behind the activity of the university through the metaphor of the beehive.
The exhibition includes a video which traverses a 3-D digital model of ‘Dance’, and images of the design, development and fabrication of the final sculpture. Also included are film interviews with Rachel Joynt and Remco de Fouw (made by students in Media Studies at Maynooth University) and a selection of individual works by Joynt and de Fouw.
The exhibition is curated by Colin Graham.
