Metamorphosis Show

Metamorphosis – a case of bilocation is a new exhibition opening by  Galway artist Jennifer Cunningham. It features prints, drawings and video work, that she produced here in Galway and while on an artists residency in Iceland.

It takes place in two venues with two openings, the first taking place on Thursday 28 at 9pm, in Bar no 8, the docks Galway and the second taking place on Thursday 4th of June at 7pm in the Gallery Cafe in the City museum. Both exhibitions with the notion of ‘das unheimlich’ or the uncanny and  use water as a metaphor which is apt given how close both venues are to water and that they run during the Volvo Ocean Race.  The Gallery Cafe is a new venue managed by Deirdre Coyne and has a delicious menu, in a fantastic location situated behind the famous Spanish Arch and boasts spectacular views of the Claddagh, Spanish Arch, River Corrib and Galway Bay.. It is open for lunch, poetry readings, book launches and art exhibitions.
