Lismore Castle Arts is delighted to announce their 2010 annual exhibition, Gerard Byrne
For the exhibition, Lismore Castle Arts has co-commissioned (with the 2010 Glasgow International Festival of Visual Art and The Renaissance Society at The University of Chicago, in collaboration with the Van Abbemuseum, Eindhoven) an ambitious new work by Byrne. ‘A Thing is a Hole in a Thing it is Not’ is manifested as four separate films about Minimalism, shown parallel to on another. At Lismore Castle Arts new off-site project space, Byrne will present the work ‘Untitled Acting Exercise (in the third person)’, which records the efforts of two actors and a director attempting to understand a script through dramatisation. This work was commissioned for the 2008 Sydney Biennale and will be shown as a single projection in a 19th Century former Church Hall.
