Open Circle Workshops

Open Circle Installation at the Goods Shed

I really enjoyed working with two wonderful groups at Open Circle Community Arts Collective over the month of November. The large scale papercuts look great and are now installed in the Goods Shed opposite MacDonagh Junction in Kilkenny until Christmas. Well done to all involved and a big thank you to Polly, Aoife, Zoe and Ken for helping to hang the work and to Sheila Jordan for organising it all. The project was supported by the Kilkenny Arts Office and the Kilkenny Carlow ETB Training Services.

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios, Dublin, 06 February – 28 March 2015, Paul Bokslag, Sarah Browne, Gareth Kennedy, Sarah Lincoln, Fiona McDonald, Studio Weave

The Pattern Exchange is an exhibition, guest curated by Rosie Lynch and Hollie Kearns, which presents existing work from Irish artists Sarah Browne, Gareth Kennedy, Sarah Lincoln and Fiona McDonald, with new commissions by Paul Bokslag (IE/NL) and architecture practice Studio Weave (UK). Taking pattern as a point of departure, the exhibition explores patterns of knowledge, material production, labour, and patterns of movement and change within urban and natural landscapes.

I have installed a large scale paper cut for The Pattern Exchange and also developed the display font for this exhibition. The Pattern Exchange font can be downloaded for free from the Temple Bar Gallery + Studios website.
