Coverage:

'The best art exhibitions running across the country', Aidan Dunne, The Ticket, The Irish Times, 5th January 2019:

"A consideration of how we nearly always have to look beyond appearances to get at the core of things, all the more so in an era of misinformation and fake news.

Hugh Cummins, Jordi Fornies, Conrad Frankel, Claire Halpin, Eoin Mac Lochlainn, Miriam McConnon and Yanny Petters are among the participants."

'Somewhere between perception and reality'

VUE Art Fair (RHA, 1-4 Nov 2018)
Winter group show (Olivier Cornet Gallery, 9 Dec 2018 to 24 February 2019)

The Olivier Cornet Gallery group show 'Somewhere between perception and reality' was first presented at VUE 2018.

It features work by gallery artists

HUGH CUMMINS, JOHN FITZSIMONS, JORDI FORNIES, CONRAD FRANKEL, CLAIRE HALPIN (shortlisted for the Savills Prize), EOIN MAC LOCHLAINN, MIRIAM MCCONNON, YANNY PETTERS, KELLY RATCHFORD, and FREDA RUPP.

The exhibition also features works by our AGA members, namely, AISLING CONROY, DAVID FOX, PAUL JAMES KEARNEY, SHEILA NAUGHTON, and VICKY SMITH.

'Somewhere between perception and reality' is an exploration of the world of appearances, of surface scratching and the way we have to read between the lines -or images and layers- to get to the core of things.

Sometimes we have to look within to understand what's without, but are we really looking? In the current climate of fake news, half-truths, rushed verdicts and online knee-jerk reactions, maybe art can help us navigate the tortuous roads of reality by asking us to look again and again, to consider how others perceive our world. Then we might see theirs or at least find common ground...

The exhibition curated by Olivier Cornet runs at his gallery from

Sunday 9 December 2018 (Official launch at 3pm) to Sunday 24 February 2019
