The Infinite Line

Curated by Sophie Behal & Maeve Lynch.

Presenting new works by Cassandra Eustace, Roseanne Lynch and Richard Forrest.

The Infinite Line is a 3-person exhibition that will take place in TACTIC gallery, Cork in May 2014. It will be accompanied by a once-off performance piece, 120 limited edition publications and a mini-symposium: The Infinite Line: A Search for the Unknown.

‘We actually form the world at every instant, although we're not cognitively aware of that.’
Robert Irwin, from Seeing is Forgetting the Name of the Thing One Sees.

Our knowing is through our individual perception of things and ultimately not knowing is the only thing that we can be certain of. This exhibition is an empirical questioning of things beyond our understanding and the nature of knowledge itself. It deals with knowledge as an unstable ground and precarious truth.

This show takes as its genesis ideas of spacial and temporal slippage and the unknown. The artists work loosely through the medium of drawing in the tri-dimensions and the experiential qualities of light.

Curators:

Sophie Behal & Maeve Lynch both hold First Class Honours Degrees from the CIT Crawford College of Art and Design (CCAD), having graduated in 2012. As well as working independently as practicing artists they regularly collaborate on publications, curation and one-off events.

Hi All, That month flew by, we can't believe it's nearly the end of our first ever fund it journey. We are counting down the hours now until we reach Monday's deadline but we still have €600 to raise. Please continue to spread the word so we can reach our target. otherwise, as you know, we won't receive a penny of your kind donations. We're so excited about the project now. Richard Forrest brought his work down to Cork last week on the train, which caused much amusement for the other commuters. We also had a site meeting in the gallery to start planning out the exhibition. We have started work on the publication which will have a commissioned essay & supporting documentation in relation the the exhibition and symposium. The closing date for applications to our open call for the performance/live art is 8pm this coming Sunday. Artists can email theinfiniteline@hotmail.com with a proposal. See link below for more info.
