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.
