126 Gallery in association with Basic Space Dublin is delighted to present Recalling Familiar Entities with work by Ali Kirby and Conor O’Sullivan.
Recalling Familiar Entities will be made up of sculptural materials, forms and imagery, responding to the architectural, the prosaic, and the everyday.
The exhibition will bring together a group of work that will address the performativity of object, formally reducing them to the point where their pragmatic nature is dismissed. The materiality of these works will exist in flux. Materials and forms that were once useful will be reworked into objects that examine how the identity of an object can become blurred and physical language altered.
Exemplifying minimalism’s concern with site, Recalling Familiar Entities looks to the uncanny eeriness of global architecture and the ubiquity of neoliberal fantasy cities. The pedestrian spectacle of LED displays and consumer packaging as unactivated monuments demonstrating the difficult relationship between calculation, function, and identity.
