Workshop: Accordion book-making with Mandy O’Neill

14 July 2023, 2 – 3pm

Join artist Mandy O’Neill to explore the TBG+S building and the changing surrounding cityscape through art, conversation and experimentation

Begin with a visit to the artist’s studio for an introduction to her recent work and artistic processes. Participants will then gather in the Gallery to for a conversation about the installation and source materials that they will use. Following a demonstration, there will be an opportunity to make your own accordion booklet. This will be created based on conversation and using photographic source materials drawn from a series of recent images of the Temple Bar area, made by the artist. The booklets can then be added to an art installation, Concrete Conversation.

This is an adult workshop, no experience is necessary.

Mandy O’Neill
is an Irish artist based in Dublin. Mandy’s practice encompasses photography, print, installation, and public dialogue. Thematically her work is concerned with the everyday outcomes of political and ideological decision making, and the possible alternatives. Recent work employs expanded photography practice and the visual language of architecture to question the nature of building and development in the inner suburbs of Dublin, and in the city itself.
