All roads lead to Neustern
November 10 - November 26, 2011
Farrelly has repeatedly returned to the invented nation state as a site for the conversion of what appears as personal whim into what is wielded as political will. While previous works have featured the imposition of the artist’s private fixations onto the infrastructures of power and nationhood – particularly via the names and nomenclature of imagined urban spaces – the Neustern project takes this further, investing the territory with an intricate phantasm of history, economy, politics, culture, ideology, mythology and society.
Thursday, November 10, 7 - 10pm
Galerie Modonov, 114 Capel Street, Dublin 1, Ireland.
Tuesday through Sunday, 11 - 5pm
