Figures
Ormston House warmly invites you to join us on Culture Night for Figures – a solo
exhibition by Richard Malone
Admission is free and all are welcome.

Knotting, binding, weaving, draping – Richard Malone uses gendered labour
practices and fabrications to test the limitations of language, gesture and
symbolism in constructing meaning and identity. Their art practice centres on
experiences of queerness, class, place and otherness, never settling on given
definitions. Their sculptures and installations suggest a sense of movement
and theatre – some appear to be alive, captured in elegant postures or in
suspended mischief. Each carries multiple techniques and multiple
possibilities for creating a new, ephemeral, and sometimes humorous
language that plays with our understanding of both mimetic and semantic
form.
Richard Malone is a cross-disciplinary, award-winning artist and designer
from Wexford. Their work has been exhibited internationally, and features in
some of the world’s most prestigious museum collections including the
Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Victoria and Albert Museum in
London, the Design Museum in London, the National Gallery of Victoria in
Melbourne, and the Design and Crafts Council Ireland. Recent exhibitions
include knot, bind Gesture, bend (2022) at the National Gallery of Ireland,
and Making and Momentum: In Conversation with Eileen Gray (2021-2022) at
the iconic E-1027 in France, touring to the National Museum in Dublin, and the
Wexford County Council Municipal Buildings in Wexford, Malone and Gray’s
hometown.
Figures will run until 15 October 2022, and is kindly supported the Arts
