Over Nature offers a new optical experience, greater ecological awareness and responsibility towards landscape and environment which surround us.
The exhibition consists of a series of multimedia artworks and paintings from Shane Finan, an innovative and interactive approach from Beata Piekarska-Daly to move towards painting, an abstract method of landscape representation with paintings and printings from Mary O’Connor, an in-depth analysis by videos and photographs of the botanical and environmental condition of the Irish landscapes from Louis Haugh, photographic installations and drawings from Guillaume Combal, and a multidisciplinary installation approach from Kathy Herbert. This variety of methodologies allows us to understand how our different histories and experiences position us in relation to each other: Who you are, where you come from, what your commitments are, what your experiences have been.

Crowded Thresholds is an exhibition which presents thought-provoking pieces across applied art, design and visual art. Curated by Fiona Mulholland, the exhibition coincides with the centenary of Freud’s essay, The Uncanny, and explores ‘emotional geography’, generating a fascinating visual interplay between authentic storytelling and artistic expression.
