Still Life

9th April – 30th September 2011

Curated by Polly Staple

Still Life presents the work of 6 artists including Gillian Carnegie, Anne Collier, Mark Leckey, Sherrie Levine, Seth Price and a new site-specific work by Richard Wright.

Still Life explores the status of images as objects. Artistic strategies represented in the exhibition include appropriation, repetition and serial production.  Points of reference include the production of images influenced by new technologies and the relationship between painting, photography and the moving image.

A catalogue, designed by Studio Firth London, featuring images of the exhibition and commissioned texts by Polly Staple and Richard Birkett, will be published in May 2011 by Lismore Castle Arts to accompany the exhibition.
