Bricks in the Rain | 6th April – 9th May 2013


 ‘Bricks in the Rain’ is a bewitching and incredibly beautiful display of ceramic sculpture, archive, film and sound.

 

Irish ceramic artists undertook a 5-week residency at Fule International Ceramic Art Museum, in, China where they created artworks, using local materials and facilities.  Their creations were then put on display, ensuring a permanent presence in China - an extraordinary opportunity for the group and for the profile of Irish Ceramic Art.

 

The group includes some of Ireland’s foremost ceramic artists; Sara Flynn, Frances Lambe, Michael Moore, Laura O’Hagan, Neil Read, Sinéad Glynn, and Kathleen Moroney.  Also featured is the work of 3 Swiss artists, who they met in China.  Their combined artworks respond to and reflect the extraordinary and international flavour of the residency.

 

Journalist and writer Eleanor Flegg accompanied them to China, and working with sound-maker Declan ÓCualáin and film-maker Andrew Standen-Raz has combined archival interviews, film and sound recordings which add a truly creative twist within the show.  The curator Hilary Morley, has endeavoured to marry this unique combination of media into an unforgettable Irish/Chinese cultural experience.
