Lennon/Porous Plane at the IMMA

Al 13 Eoin I (2015)

Showing in the same wing of the IMMA as the Coastlines exhibition, there’s a solo show by Lennon. No, not that one, but Irish artist, Ciarán Lennon. A new discovery for me, he’s an elected member of Aosdána, currently living and working in Dublin.

The exhibition features abstract works from 1970 right up to 2017. Many of them have been created by folding fabrics, sometimes forming compex shapes,

Dernier 7 for MM (1974)

Folded/Unfolded MM1972 (for Fiona) (2017)

Folded/Unfolded (1969)

Other works, like the one at the head of this post, are made of painted aluminium

Overall, relatively simple works, but effective.
