Connolly & Cleary awarded RPA Luas Cherrywood Public Art Commission

Paris-based Irish artists Connolly & Cleary have been awarded the Railway Procurement Agency (RPA) Luas Cherrywood Public Art Commission managed by Visual Artists Ireland which arose as a result of the extension of the Luas Green Line, Dublin's Light Rail Tram System.

Anne Cleary and Denis Connolly will present a major new video installation to feature as part of the 'Hall of Mirrors' exhibition at Farmleigh Gallery. It will then tour to Limerick City Gallery, Solstice and Ballina Art Centre. Entitled 'Look Both Ways' the mutli-element video installation will feature HD film sequences treating images of the LUAS transformed to explore movement.

'Hall of Mirrors', in collaboration with CLARITY: Centre for Sensor Web Technologies and Laboratoire Psychologie de la Perception, Université Paris Descartes & CNRS, opens at Farmleigh Gallery on Thursday 15th March and will run until 22nd July. The 'Look Both Ways' element of the project will open in the coming months.
