The solo exhibition of Dublin based artist Isabel Nolan will open in the acclaimed Galerie Krinzinger, Seilerstätte 16, Wien, 1010 24th November 19:00.
The exhibition “Run for the Shadows” will last from 25 November 2016 - 21 January 2017.
Her highly acclaimed exhibition in 2014 for the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) explored how light manifests as a metaphor in our thoughts, obsessions and pursuits and included text, sculpture, drawings and textiles. IMMA describes her work as being underpinned by a desire to examine and capture in material form the moments of intensity that can define our encounters with the objects around us; inexplicable and unsettling moments that leave us with a heightened awareness of what is means to be alive. For Nolan this exploration happens through making things – whether monumental or intimate in scale, they are presented to us as tentative and precarious markers of the experience of our place beneath the sun.
Perfect viewing for the Viennese winter as it sets in!
