TBG+S Writer 2015/16: Sara Baume - Essay #5 ‘Imitation of Life’

05 April 2016

Temple Bar Gallery + Studios is delighted to announce the fifth and last in the series of commissioned essays by author Sara Baume written in response to each programmed exhibition at TBG+S. The essays, with layout by Language, are available online, in the gallery and broadcast on RTE’s Arena radio programme.

The fifth essay in the series responds to the solo exhibition Imitation of Life by Amie Siegel, guest curated by Megs Morley. This exhibition brings together two of Siegel’s most recent film works, The Architects (2014, Commissioned by Storefront for Art and Architecture as part of Office US) and Quarry (2015). Both films delve into the world of architectural construction and luxury real estate to expose uncanny relationships between art, labour and value. The exhibition continues until Saturday 9 April 2016.
