New Generation Gallery 2019
This work is an investigation into the complicated story of a collection of 200-year-old plaster casts known in Cork as the Canova Casts. Dozens of chalk drawings are projected in sequence onto a monumental blackboard and a collection of large format analogue photographic negatives are displayed within lightboxes. There is also a sculptural object: an unauthorised cast of a cast.
