sintesi del comunicato stampa

The exhibition brings together Irish and international contemporary artists whose work has been inspired by iconic buildings of architectural modernism. Many of the artists are concerned with ideas of representation and interpretation, as well as the history and space of the specific modernist structures they explore. From Eileen Gray's seminal E1027 to Mies Van der Rohe's restored Farnsworth House, Paul Rudolph's demolished residences to Walter Gropius's imagined Chicago Tribune Tower, the buildings referenced in Folly have had a mixed collection of fates. Their presence in this exhibition affords them another afterlife. The qualities that make the architecture significant are played with, exposed, re-canonised, made ambiguous, and eulogised. By creating fictional moments, questioning conventional documentation or excavating troubled histories of production, each artist invites you to think about how we experience and understand architecture today. The show is accompanied by an extensive programme of curated events, talks, art courses and workshops. Curated by Gary Boyd and Fiona Kearney.
