Free admission, all welcome.
A celebration of the 2017 Project Studio artists Vanessa Daws, Kathy Tynan, Marcel Vidal, Tanad Williams and Andreas Kindler von Knobloch takes place at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios on Thursday 14 December at 6pm. In the first event of its kind at TBG+S, Vanessa Daws and Kathy Tynan will open their studios to the public, a new site-specific sculptural work by Marcel Vidal and a permanent intervention by Tanad Williams and Andreas Kindler von Knobloch will be unveiled in the building’s Atrium Space.
Vanessa Daws practice explores place through swimming. ‘Place’ being the watery space that is navigated and swam through, the littoral space surrounding and the social space created by this shared activity.
Kathy Tynan’s practice responds to place. With the intent of making paintings, she traces her local environment and examines it with intensity. The more closely she looks, the more inspiration it yields.
Marcel Vidal makes paintings and sculptures. His approach to sculpture and its assembled chaos and combative insistence is strongly contrasted by his paintings made in oil and watercolor.
Andreas Kindler von Knobloch and Tanad Williams have chosen to share a studio for the past year. Working collaboratively on projects of concern to their individual solo practices, their sculptural works are informed by an interest in social space, philosophy, landscape, materiality and architecture.
