Commissioner: Culture Ireland
Curators: Temple Bar Gallery + Studios
Exhibitor: Niamh O’Malley


Using steel, limestone, wood, and glass, Niamh O’Malley shapes, and assembles objects to create a purposeful landscape of forms. Sculptures tall and free-standing, ground-bearing, and cantilevered, with paced and looped moving image, inhabit and animate. As Lizzie Lloyd writes “time and again support systems dominate, becoming a part of, not just a means of displaying work”. Gather invites communality and mobilisation. O’Malley’s sculptures gesture towards enabling, offering protection, conveying sensations of touch and more – of grabbing, holding, caressing surfaces, offering a moment of tether and precarious poise.
