Emin's work to be displayed in Enniskillen
Published: 8 Sep 2012 16:06
Humbly Through The Dust is an exhibition inspired by The British Council's Art Collection.
Being shown at the Cooper Wilkinson gallery, it is showing the work of Croydon-born artists Tracey Emin, the Croydon-born who came to prominence when her work Everyone I Have Ever Slept With 1963-1995, a tent appliquéd with names, was shown at Charles Saatchi's Sensation exhibition held at the Royal Academy in London. She was a Turner Prize nominee with her work My Bed - an installation, consisting of her own unmade dirty bed.
English artist Grayson Perry is known chiefly for his ceramic vases and cross-dressing. Like Emin, there is a strong autobiographical element to his work, in which images of Perry as Claire, his female alter-ego, often appear. He was awarded the Turner Prize in 2003.
This major exhibition is coming to Fermanagh in October in association with The British Council and is curated by Helen Sharp.
The work of as many as 32 artists including Henry Moore, Mark Wallinger as well as a host of Northern Ireland artists is being shown.
It is part of the forthcoming FLive festival programme.
Artists showing include Seamus Harahan, Hari MacMillan, Eric Ravilious, Sean Lynch, Christine Borland,Marcus Haydock, Catherine Roberts, Gillian Wylde, James Stopforth, Nicholas Keogh, Michael Brick, Duncan Ross, Megs Morley and Tom Flanagan, Ursula Burke, Fay Godwin, Gertrude Hermes, Deirdre McKenna, Stephen Gooden, Julie Bacon, Anya Gallaccio, Maggi Hambling, Stephen Gooden, William Morgan,Edmund Blampied, Jem Southam, Annie-June Callaghan, Keith Connolly and Anne Quail.
The title of the exhibition is taken from the novel Ring O'Rushes written by Shan Bullock, born on Inisherk in 1865. Both fictitious and autobiographical, Bullock's writing borrows from fact and from imagination to weave tales of rural life and so too does Humbly Through The Dust.
The preview takes place on Thursday, October 4 2012 at 7pm. Opening hours 11am - 4pm, Monday - Saturday until November 3.
