Liliane Puthod: WELCOME TO TOMORROW

28 May 2021, 11am - 6pm

Come along with me
You don't have to worry
Good news is on the way
I'm talking about the way things started out
Gonna end the same*

An end note, a daytime fragrance, this uplifting public event will be taking place as a conclusion of Liliane Puthod’s one year Project Studio at Temple Bar Gallery + Studios. Accompanied by an operator, you will be invited to experience a brief journey elevating you up around 14 meters high to glance at the artist’s studio, but only through its window facing Lower Fownes Street. This conclusion event is part of the artist’s ongoing research project La Réserve investigating the artist’s studio and how it differs from commonly held productive spaces.

Please note: Visitors will travel upwards in a cherry picker with a licensed operator to view the artist's studio, through the window, on the second storey of Temple Bar Gallery + Studios. Only one person can use the cherry picker at a time. They will be required to follow health and safety instructions and must remain standing during this period. This event is not suitable for children or people who experience vertigo.

Liliane Puthod makes large-scale installations and sculptures using both handmade and industrial materials as a way to confront archaeological and commodified times. She manipulates some of society’s existing modes of production and dissemination to investigate the elusive concept of time inherent to everyday life’s consumption and to subtly destabilize what she considers the fabrication of desire and its perceived value within our globalised world.

Liliane Puthod (b. 1986, France) lives and works in Dublin. She graduated from a Master in Fine Arts at HEAD Geneva in 2013. Selected exhibitions and awards include: Dissolving Histories: An Unreliable Presence, Golden Thread Gallery; Display, Link and Cure, The Complex; How Long After Best Before, Pallas Projects/Studios; Everything Must Go, PS2, Belfast; Project Studio, Temple Bar Gallery + Studios; Arts Council of Ireland Visual Arts Bursary; Summer Studio Residency, TUD, Dublin.
