Carmen 2011 by Susana Solano
Although the main galleries were closed, there are a number of art works scattered around the grounds of the Irish Museum of modern Art. I snapped photographs of some (but not all) of them while I strolled around outside the building and in the gardens.
This is one of the hare type statues which were a favourite motif for the Welsh sculptor, Barry Flanagan.

I liked these granite pieces scattered on the lawn.

8 Limestones cut to a specific size from rough blocks 50 x 50 x 150 cm split into parts and reassembled into their original form, 1988 by Ulrich Rückriem (Some title that. It does exactly what it says on the tin!)
A couple of oversized arms cast in bronze. Look like they’ve been amputated from a giant.

This rather moving statue is by the Irish sculptor Edward Delaney, who lived in Germany for a few years after World War II. It was inspired by an exhausted women on a bench looking for help who was observed by the artist. He wanted to works that show that life goes on in spite of suffering.

This fountain, made up of four structures which rather remind me of the wax running down the sides of a wine bottle holding a burning candle, is located in the pond in the middle of the formal garden.
