I will exhibit a number of paper-cuts in Waterford Regional Hospital as part of the exhibitions programme curated by Waterford Healing Arts Trust. The title of the exhibition, Waking Up in Waterford, refers to my hospital admission after a traumatic accident many years ago. Through a series of more figurative paper-cuts I have tried to revisited my stay as a patient in the hospital and the visual narrative that runs through the exhibition follows a journey towards recovery.
Waking Up In Waterford will run from Thursday 10th April, 2014 until the 6th June, 2014. For further information please contact the Waterford Healing Arts Trust on 051-842664 or e-mail WHAT@hse.ie
About fifteen years ago I designed a logo for an initiative group wanting to start a hospice in Leiden, the Netherlands. Now, celebrating its tenth birthday, Hospice Issoria moves to a bigger home at Burggravenlaan 11. I am delighted that as part of this I was asked to exhibit a number of papercuts. The exhibition can be viewed during the Open Day on Saturday 21st September from 11.00 – 16.00.
